In addition to normal control, KNX also offers control via a mobile application or a mounted display. This means turning any device on or off or checking the temperature is just a tap away. Using mobile applications, you can create scenes or automations yourself. You can also customize your mobile interface according to your needs and get an overview of your energy consumption.
Centralized control in a decentralized household
KNX devices can be installed both indoors (lights, blinds, ...) and outdoors (lights, sprinklers, pool control, ...), all centralized in one system that controls them. No more switching mobile apps between devices because one app covers everything.
KNX smart home is a decentralized system, which means that all devices can work together without being dependent on a central server. The system ensures that if your central server or any sensor or actuator fails, the remaining devices will still function. This is especially important in commercial buildings such as shops, offices or hotels, but your private home can also benefit from the guaranteed quality of the system.
Once the KNX system is installed, it can be expanded or reprogrammed at any time. The plumber can adapt it to your requirements if your living conditions and habits change.
With the KNX smart home app, you can turn off any light you've left on, remotely close the blinds to protect your windows from strong winds and storms, or adjust the temperature before you get home. Do it all via your smartphone, tablet or even a smart watch! Let the remote control bring peace of mind and ensure your home is safe and sound.
Saving energy means turning off the light when you don't need it. It sounds so simple, but in practice it is rarely achieved, especially in buildings with a large number of people coming and going. With the help of KNX, you can use presence sensors to turn off the light when no presence is detected, saving energy in the long run. Let your heating and cooling be automated depending on the outside and inside temperature and make your home more energy efficient.
The natural energy of the sun can be intelligently integrated into the temperature control system so that blinds and heating work in harmony. This means that when the sun is in a favorable position in winter, the blinds are raised and the amount of heating required is reduced accordingly. The KNX weather station can significantly help with this.
KNX has been around for 30 years and is definitely here to stay. The KNX standard ensures that all certified KNX devices are compatible with each other. KNX has stood the test of time and is scalable and flexible enough to stay at the cutting edge of smart home technology.
With KNX, you're never tied to one manufacturer and can choose any device from a different manufacturer to ensure you get the look and functionality you need at a price that fits your budget.
The KNX smart home runs completely locally and is closed to the outside world, making it the best way to secure your data.
The KNX smart home allows you to automatically activate the alarm when the door is locked. Motion and presence sensors will detect any suspicious movement at your door and send you an alert on your phone. You can manage your alarm system remotely and set a routine to make it look like you're home when you're not. Complete remote control of the house.
Ready for the IoT world
KNX is a traditional cable standard, but it can be easily integrated into the 21st century Internet world. You can integrate KNX devices into the ecosystem of Apple Homekit, Amazon Alexa or Google Home with the help of third-party companies. It's a fairly simple process that combines the wired KNX and wireless IoT worlds into a single app, allowing you to control your KNX home with your voice and add wireless devices like Philips Hue, IKEA Trådfri and many more.
