This study proposed a smart control algorithm to naturally adjust the thermal quality of the environment according to the interior and exterior environmental factors and the behavior of the inhabitants. To design an appropriate smart control algorithm for the smart buildings in the subtropical zones, this study conscientiously investigated the thermal effect of smart-skin facades of some office buildings in Taiwan to learn the correlation of the thermal parameters and the requirements of the inhabitants. To evaluate and further improve the proposed algorithm, an experimental building with two experimental zones was constructed. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm significantly improves the thermal comfort and reduce power consumption through well coordinating the smart-skin equipment and air conditioners.
