This study aims to develop a design concept that is responsive to climate, especially on buildings in a humid tropical climate. Hot and humid climatic condition is one crucial issue in achieving thermal comfort in buildings. Control of direct solar heat, which can cause excessive heating in the room is the central theme of the scope of this study. The use of permanent shading devices is often not able to block the sunlight where the angle changed from time to time during the year. Shading device design does not take into consideration the main parameters of angle of direct light because of failure to apply the optimal design tool. Shading devices can be adapted to the automatic changes is needed, especially to avoid excessive heating in a room. The purpose is to design the control appropriate shading devices. Smart shading device is the ability of construction to react in real time to reduce the heat directly from the sun into the room. Smart shading devices depend on the input data and information; and acting if conditions exceed the certain limits interval. The use of sensors and actuators as an inseparable part so that these devices will be smart or even smarter in interacting with the environment in accordance functionality desired building or room. Application of the tool at a tested house scale of 1:1 has been tested. The test, of course, of the tool has been done and went well. The object of this study is part of a series of research to get the smart building design completely and thoroughly, both the parts or elements of architecture and the functioning of the building for a goal of reduction of energy use.
