By taking into account parameters such as shadow movements, sunlight levels, weather and building location, Animeo Connect offers a dynamic shading management solution that can reduce energy consumption by between 30-70% depending on location, climate and window type. A complete system with sensors, motorization and auto-learning software allows users to account for their own comfort while improving the overall energy efficiency of buildings.
