What is KNX?
MORE COMFORT, MORE SAFETY, MORE ENERGY SAVING: THE DEMAND FOR BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IS CONTINUALLY INCREASING.
Whether it is a single-family home or an office complex, the demand for comfort and flexibility for the management of air treatment, lighting and access control is increasing. At the same time, the more efficient use of energy is becoming increasingly important. More comfort and safety coupled with lower energy consumption is only possible with intelligent control and control systems. The disadvantage, however, is that more cabling is required from the sensors and actuators to the control and control centers. This massive cabling translates into higher design and installation costs, an increased risk of fire, in short, rising costs.

KNX: ONE SINGLE APPROACH WITH DIFFERENT ADVANTAGES
Regardless of where, KNX brings demonstrable benefits for architects, designers and contractors, and above all for the owners and / or users of these buildings.
- Lighting and heating are only switched on when really needed, for example on the basis of time profiles and / or physical presence, in order to save energy and therefore money. Furthermore, lighting can also be controlled automatically on the basis of the available daylight intensity, in order to actually reduce the energy consumption for lighting to the strict minimum (only where necessary will the lighting be switched on). Verlichting en verwarming zijn enkel aangeschakeld wanneer echt nodig, bv. op basis van tijdsprofielen en/of fysieke aanwezigheid, om daarmee energie en dus geld te besparen. Verder kan verlichting ook automatisch op basis van de aanwezige daglichtintensiteit gestuurd worden, om het energieverbruik voor verlichting werkelijk tot het strikte minimum te herleiden (enkel daar waar nodig zal de verlichting ingeschakeld worden).
- Saving time Connecting all communication equipment via one bus saves both design and installation time. With the unique manufacturer and application independent Engineering Tool Software (ETS) you can use m.b.v. KNX-certified products, installations designed, optimized and configured. Because the tool is manufacturer-independent, system integrators can easily combine products from different manufacturers and for different communication media (twisted pair, radio frequency, power line or IP / Ethernet) in one installation.
- Flexible and future-oriented
A KNX installation can be adapted for new applications in a very simple way, even expansion does not cause any problems. New equipment (bus participants) can be easily linked to an existing installation.
