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.

Applications used

  • Lighting: Switching , Dimming , Light Scenes , Timed Control , Automatic Occupancy Detection
  • Heating, Ventilation & Air conditioning (HVAC): Weather Dependent Control , Individual Room Control / Zone Control , Valve Drive Control / Fan Coil Control , CO2 / Humidity Measuring , Floor Heating Control
  • Blind and Shutter Control: Individual Control , Group & Central Control , Preset Positioning , Wind and Rain Protection , Sun Tracing (interaction with HVAC / lighting)
  • Security and Safety: Faults (e.g. Leak Detection, Glass Break Detection, Window Contacts) , Intrusion Detection / Alarm Systems , Emergency Lighting
  • Operation and Visualisation: Switches / Push Buttons , PC Visualisation , Web Servers , Touch Panels & Display Panels , Tablets and smart phones
  • Automation and Remote Access: Logical Functions , System Supervision , Internet Access
  • Other: Distributed Facilities

Customer's description

Este proyecto quiere demostrar que un uso racional de sistemas de automatización es vital para conseguir hogares confortables, seguros y eficientes energéticamente. Con la ayuda de KNX queremos enseñar cómo cumplir los ODS de la Agenda 2030. Por eso hemos fabricado una maqueta de una vivienda de dos plantas, hecha con LEGO y automatizada con KNX. Proceso: - Diseño de planos y esquemas eléctricos - Montaje de maqueta LEGO con doble suelo y doble pared para cableado y equipos: pulsador, ventil. + suelo radiante, luces... - Selección de equipos KNX - Preparación de esquemas KNX - Montaje de cuadro KNX en una maleta - Programación y puesta en marcha con ETS - Visualización KNX con InVendi Funciones: - Confort y gestión eficiente: luces, escenas, toldos, HVAC, comandos de voz - Gestión medioambiental de luces, toldos y HVAC - Seguridad: control puerta con alarma visual con sistema intrusión activo - Vivienda conectada al IOT: visualización web
