Detailed description

Energy Efficiency

The usage of automated functions already save energy in every installation. Especially the usage of KNX has a lot of potential for further energy savings, which can contribute to a better environmental footprint. Be extending KNX to more functions and applications, energy savings of up to 60% can be realised. Thanks to the flexibility of KNX, these functions can easily be implemented in this installation


Smart homes and buildings are always an upgrade in comparison to a conventional installation. Not only automated functions and a higher level of comfort contribute to a higher living standard, but also the possibility to be ready for coming innovations. Thanks to the usage of KNX, the door has been opened to integrate new innovative solutions, using the worldwide STANDARD for home and building control.

Ease of Use

By integrating KNX, we automatically experience a higher energy efficiency and comfort. Furthermore, by the possibility to use further devices, in order to make the usage of the project easier, we can look at further opportunity to even make the whole installation easier in usage.

Customer's description

700 apartments, 19 different type of layout. In each apartment there are 70 KNX devices, totally nearly 50,000pcs KNX devices in this project. It is purely KNX and complete functions. It is a project under management by one of the China biggest Real Estate developer. They set up a plan for all of their house which must be equipped with KNX products and solutions. It is a system which has features of high-end, latest technology, international standard, easy to implement and mentain etc. We suggest to use KNX because it is a standard which exactly match their needs. It is not cheap by applying such a solution with so many devices but it is worth of the investment. We see that in China there are more and more projects like this are euipped with KNX solutions and products. Stability and flesibility are obviously the two sides but by using KNX we could have them both. Thanks.
