Details

DescriptionThis measure will add daylighting controls to spaces that that have space types assigned with names containing the string in the argument. You can also add a cost per space for sensors added to the model.
Modeler DescriptionMake an array of the spaces that meet the criteria. Locate the sensor x and y values by averaging the min and max X and Y values from floor surfaces in the space. If a space already has a daylighting control, do not add a new one and leave the original in place. Warn the user if the space isn't assigned to a thermal zone, or if the space doesn't have any translucent surfaces. Note that the cost is added to the space not the sensor. If the sensor is removed at a later date, the cost will remain.
