English abstract:
This paper summarizes the results of a long-term effort to study control-oriented occupant
behavior in a number of office buildings in Austria. Specifically, states and events pertaining
to occupancy, systems (particularly lighting and shading), indoor environment, and external
environment were monitored. The results were analyzed in view of potential patterns in
lighting and shading control behavior. Such patterns allow for derivation of predictive models
of user control behavior in buildings.
