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

Innovation

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

70er Jahre Haus umgebaut für Parkinson Patienten. In Mannheim hat ein Paar sein Eigenheim komplett umgebaut – und zwar absolut altersgerecht und insbesondere zugeschnitten auf die Bedürfnisse des Bauherrn. Dessen Aktionsradius wird mehr und mehr eingeschränkt durch Parkinson. Mit Hilfe moderner Technik kann er jetzt so lange und mit so wenig Unterstützung wie möglich im eigenen Zuhause leben. Basis ist die Vernetzung aller technischer Komponenten im Haus über ein KNX System mit einem leistungsstarken Gira FacilityServer im Hintergrund. Bedient wird die gesamte Haus- und Medientechnik über eine Fernbedienung, Sprache oder das iPad. Basisfunktionen finden sich unter anderem auf klassischen Schaltern wieder, die auch wechselndes Pflegepersonal intuitiv bedienen kann
