Windows and Shading

What does Atamate smart window and shading control do?

office
  • Controls automated windows, smart window blinds, shutters and curtains.
  • Sensors measure internal light and temperature to optimise shading.
  • Windows can be automatically opened to passive cool a building, reducing workloads on mechanical systems.

Benefits of smart window and shading control

Control overheating

Preventing incoming solar energy is the best way to keep your building cool. The Atamate dual temperature sensor system monitors every room, and closes shutters or smart window blinds to control solar gains and prevent overheating.

Provide a healthy internal environment

Atamate sensors monitor air quality and internal and external temperatures so motorised windows can be fully or partially opened to ventilate a building. This maintains air quality or cools a building down when internal temperature is warmer than the outside.

Convenience with motorised controls

Windows, blinds or curtains that are difficult to reach can be opened at the touch of a button. They can also be automated by Atamate using the calendar or presets to passively cool a building.

Improved security

Atamate controls can be set to close all accessible windows at night or when the building is empty. The same controls can also close windows when it’s raining.

Independent living

For elderly or less able residents, motorising windows and shading allows occupants to remain in control. Disabled residents can use the most appropriate devices to control their  home and maximise independence.

How smart window and shading works

Atamate gives fine control of all types of windows and blinds or curtains. Automating the opening and closing of these using internal and external environmental data means that buildings are running at their optimum level without needing any intervention.

THE HAZE

An Atamate HAZE light switch or Atamate user interface can control curtains and smart window blinds meaning electric lights can be set to stay off unless there’s not enough sunlight. Shading can also be used to control the glare of direct sunlight if necessary.

Monitoring and data in smart window and shading

Alerts created from information gathered by our System Monitor can be sent to the most appropriate person. If window motors fail and security is compromised, alerts are prioritised and issues quickly dealt with. Charting data from sensors is also made available on Atamate Building Performance so the performance of the building can be tracked in real-time and that data used to better design future properties.

Who would use smart window and shading control?

RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS

Reduce overheating risk in residential buildings using shading and automated windows as part of the building specification. Link with other systems installed in a house to automatically close windows when the security system is set.
