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

CUST'HOME designed the cross-building digital infrastructure for all technical batches, IP up to 15 divisional electrical panels, then fieldbus using flat ceiling cable: one for HVAC with KNX; one for lighting with DALI. This global approach has made it possible to optimize and simplify the deployed cabling and to standardize the protocols by the technical teams. Some figures: 200 DALI; 10 KNX DALI gateways; 130 office areas; 150 presence and brightness detectors; 131 radiant panel regulators; 31 fan coils; 75 electric meters; 40 meters of water and heat. The application on smartphone or tablet, developed by the teams of Jaguar Network, allows the reservation of a meeting room, the control of its office, the management of each zone, the order of its menu in the restaurant, ... as much features that make this building user friendly. Cloud monitoring, also developed by Jaguar Network, allows you to monitor, store and analyze all building information. Cert.:HQE Excellent;BDM Or;BEPOS.
