Whether in a single-family house or in an office complex, the demand for comfort and versatility in the management of air-conditioning, lighting and access control systems is growing. At the same time, the efficient use of energy is becoming increasingly important. More convenience and safety coupled with lower energy consumption can however only be achieved by intelligent control and monitoring of all products involved. This however implies more wiring, running from the sensors and actuators to the control and monitoring centres. Such a mass of wiring in turn means higher design and installation effort, increased fire risk and soaring costs. The answer is KNX.
It is the world Standard for home and building control. It is a simple system for intelligent electrical installation networking. A bus cable combines devices and systems. New functions can be easily added in the future as the needs of occupants change and extra functionality is required. Using KNX technology and the KNX standard as the platform for the integration and control of all or some of a commercial building’s services has many benefits.
Over 370 KNX member companies worldwide offer more than 7.000 certified product groups in their catalogues. KNX certified products are fully compatible and therefore integration is simple. In addition, as a building’s use changes or there are new occupiers, the latest technologies and solutions can be introduced.
This flexibility and future proofing capability applies to all building services as KNX technology is available for applications as diverse as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, security, metering, blinds, windows, facades and even AV systems. KNX can provide effective energy management through Peak Demand Monitoring, Current Detection, Network Monitoring, Load Shedding, Smart Metering, Energy Pulse Counting, Data Logging and Visualisation.
