    Can Any Ambient Weather Stations Read Brightness

    I know that many of the Ambient Weather stations scan read "solor radiation". But base on their definition that doesn't seem to be the same as brightness. I wanted to use this to decide when I want to lower shades and awnings but I guess for that I would need brigthness (lux) and not solar radiation (watts).

    Ambient gives you a lot of options:

    Solar Radiation (W/m²)
    Illuminance (lux)
    UV Index

    And if you search, there is also a Homeseer script for Solar Altitude and Solar Azimuth.
