The building envelop in hot humid regions always gets heated up during summers. The temperature inside the room increases and makes the person uncomfortable. The need for the use of Air Conditioner (AC) is increasing rapidly in order to maintain a comfortable environment. Due to the excessive heat inside the building, the load on the ac will increase, which in turn will increase the energy consumption. The aim is to reduce the energy consumption by allowing optimum daylight inside the building with the help of blinds. Electrical energy costs can be reduced if appropriate lighting controls are used in conjunction with automated window blinds. Set point illuminance level inside an office is maintained with help of both artificial and daylight
