I have a question on how to build efficient flows, hopefully someone could give me some insight on this.
I live in a large apartment with windows facing south and south-west. All windows come with screens that I can control with Fibaro roller shutters. I have automated all of this, but I’m not satisfied on when my screens are closing based on the position of the sun and the light into my apartment. Specifically on the 5 windows on the south side. Right now I have these two flows:
This is for one of the screens (my office, duh). I set them down only if the power generation of my solar panels is above a certain level and the luminance indoor is above a certain level or outside it is above a certain level. These levels seem to be good, but the problem is that they don’t go up at a time I would like them. If you look at the graph of the outdoor luminance, the luminance rises in the morning (as expected) and possibly even reflection that drives it up to the 5k (now you know why I need screens) and further into the morning the levels go down. However, the luminance level stays above a value at which I would set the screens up/down, this is probably because of the fact that the sun comes in at the side of the sensor. This is fine, but that means that if I would set the screens up, sun wouldn’t come into the apartment.
I was thinking to solve this by having a higher value after solar noon (using the sun events app), because inherently this would mean the sun is coming in through my windows on the south-west. The downside is that this would complicate my flows even more (and I have 4*2 flows more like the above for the other south facing screens). I was hoping that someone perhaps has an advice on what I could improve to make my flows better on this aspect.
