With work from home, I spend a bunch of time in my den which has a bank of east-facing windows. Now that it is summer, it can get warm in the room when the sun is shining in the window. To make is a bit more complicated, there are trees shading the window, so the sun hits directly early in the morning, and about mid-day.
What I would like to do it to install automatic shades controlled by a luminance sensor. The sensor would be on the window sill looking outward. Therefore, it doesn’t need to do anything but see the sun. I’d control it with WebCore.
Has anyone created such a thing? What luminance sensor did you use? All the posts on here are pretty old. I am hoping there are new options.
