a worldwide standard for home & building control

A benefit in every type of building: From the office complex to the average household. Whatever the kind of building is, KNX opens up complete new opportunities for building control systems while keeping the costs at a manageable level. KNX can provide solutions that could only be realized with considerable effort with conventional installation techniques. Via a single touch panel, all applications in the home or building can be controlled. From heating, ventilation and access control to the remote control of all household appliances – KNX allows completely new ways of increasing comfort, safety and energy savings in a home or building.

compatibility with knx system

One of the strengths of the KNX system, is that any product labeled with the KNX trademark is not a mere declaration of the manufacturer but is based on conformity testing carried out by KNX accredited third party test labs. During these tests, it is not only checked that the device supports the KNX protocol but that its useful data is coded according to the KNX standardized Data types.

This results in devices of different manufacturers and different applications that can be combined to a working installation.

The KNX Association member companies have more than 7000 KNX certified product in their catalogues.[9] This wide range of products allow, for example, the integration of:

  • Lighting control
  • Heating/ventilation & Air Conditioning control
  • Shutter/Blind & shading control
  • Alarm monitoring
  • Energy management & Electricity/Gas/Water metering
  • Audio & video distribution

On top of that you can enable access to the system via LAN, analog or mobile phone networks for having a central or distributed control of the system via PCs, Touch screens and Smartphones.

more convenience, more safety, higher energy saving

In order to transfer control data to all building management components, a system is required that does away with the problems of isolated devices by ensuring that all components communicate via one common language: in short, a system such as the manufacturer and application domains independent KNX Bus.

This standard is based upon more than 25 years of experience in the market. Via the KNX medium (twisted pair, radio frequency, power line or IP/Ethernet-WIFI), to which all bus devices are connected, they are able to exchange information.

Bus devices can either be sensors or actuators needed for the control of building management equipment such as: lighting, blinds / shutters, security systems, energy management, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, signalling and monitoring systems, interfaces to service and building control systems, remote control, metering, audio / video control, white goods, etc. All these functions can be controlled, monitored and signalled via a uniform system without the need for extra control centres.
