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 , Lighting Colour Control

Customer's description

PlusCity wie auch Hollywood Megaplex Kino wurden dabei mit zentraler Beleuchtungssteuerung ausgestattet, dessen Schwerpunkt auf der Integration unterschiedlicher Technologien liegt. Der KNX Bus bildet die Basis, über den Server werden außerdem DALI und DMX Systeme verbunden. In der PlusCity (Center und Parkhäuser) wie auch im Megaplex ist mit dem NETx MaRS Modul eine minutengenaue Abfrage des Energieverbrauchs von KNX Subzählern für Strom, Kälte, Heizung und Wasser möglich. Mittels Schnittstelle zu GLT werden die Übergeordneten Betriebszeiten u. Störmeldungen übertragen.
