Create Standards that Automate Windows and Doors

Every window on Planet should have an Automated Thermal Blanket
When ceiling occupancy sensor detects room is not in use, thermal blanket deploys to significantly reduce energy loss Insulation rolls up in wall above each window and mates with grooves at each side. This significantly reflects sun light, reflects thermal radiation, reduces airflow & reduces heat conduction.
Create Standard for Modules and Cavities in Windows
Windows are manufactured with standard sized internal cavities that are covered with small hatches. The 4wire bus routes to each cavity; subsequently, one can install standard modules to perform various functions such as open/close window or deploy thermal blanket.
Sensor & User Interface Window Module
Window lower right corner supports a small cavity for a standardized module that includes sensors and/or a user interface (e.g. buttons to open/close window). This monitors temperature, pressure, light and humidity both inside and outside the building -- which helps to determine when to automatically open/close window.
Create Modular Chassis Standard for Windows, Doors & Ceiling
We do not have the luxury of internal cavities built into a window when working with existing construction. Subsequently, MA2 creates standard chassis system that is installed into wall above window, above door, or into ceiling. Standard modules plug into chassis to support things like occupancy detection, fire detection, Wi-Fi range extension, and curtain/blind motor control.
900Watts per Square Meter with ~100% efficiency
Sunlight entering room delivers ~900 watts per square meter (normal to sun ray) of heat with ~100% efficiency. This is a fantastic amount of heat. Solar cells are ~20% efficient; therefore you need ~5 times more square meters on roof to get same enenergy. Subsequently, if it is cold outside, we want sun facing windows uncovered.
