The KNX Standard

KNX Technology

The need to improve comfort, convenience and safety, whilst at the same time reduce energy consumption is a task that can only be achieved by intelligently controlling and monitoring the products and technology within the home or office complex. Improving the management of HVAC systems, lighting, security and access control through home automation systems overcomes these challenges and provides a comfortable, sustainable and safe environment.

From an automation perspective, this implies more wires, devices and higher installation costs. However, this doesn’t need to be the case and automation can be simplified by providing a standard communications protocol. This is where KNX comes in – by providing a common language that all devices use to communicate means the kind of device you want to use doesn’t matter anymore.

Whether you want to control lighting, shutters, audio and video control, security systems, energy management, underfloor heating, air-conditioning systems, monitoring systems, BMS interface systems, and control it all remotely… all these functions work via a uniform system.

KNX makes home and building control easy.
