This measure doesn't add in any windows, it only adds dayligt sensors. It first loops throu surfaces looking for surfaces with an exterior boundary condition. Then it loops through any subsurfaces that the surface has and if it has a sub-surface that isn't a door or overhead door sets this flag to true. "has_ext_nat_light = true". If one or more surface in a zone is true for this it will add a sensor.

At was a basic proof of concept measure. We have office and school AEDG measures that are more advanced. They add fenestration as well as shading surfaces, light shelves, skylights, and daylighting controls. It removes your existing objects and adds object based on the 50% AEDG guidelines. To use this you need to use our templates or manually flag the building type and space types so the measure knows what about the function of each space. This applies a more advanced logic on placing the sensor than the other measure.
