Reliable information regarding user presence and behavior in buildings is crucial for building performance simulation applications (energy consumption, indoor environment). In this context, the present contribution describes an effort to observe control-oriented occupant behavior in 29 offices of a large high-rise office complex over a period of one year. The observations regarding control behavior tendencies suggest relationships to both indoor environmental conditions and outdoor environment parameters.
