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

  • Energy Management/Smart Metering: Metering , Data Logging , Visualisation , Current Detection , Peak Demand Monitoring , Load Shedding , Energy Harvesting (Avoiding use of batteries) , Use of Renewable Energies , Battery Storage

Customer's description

Im Zuge des iPraktikums der TU München haben Studenten im WS16/17 mit ihrem Projektpartner iHaus einen MICRO Grid entwickelt, der im privaten Haushalt für ein effizientes Energiemanagment sorgt. Dabei wird die KNX Gebäudetechnik mit der IoT-Welt verknüpft, um möglichst hohe Einsparungspotentiale zu erzielen. Eigens erzeugte Energie speichern & zum richtigen Zeitpunkt für den Verbraucher bereitstellen, trifft den Nerv der Zukunft. Der iHaus MIRCRO Grid ist innovativ, zukunftssicher, nachhaltig & lässt sich in jedem smarten Haushalt integrieren. Video zu Projekt: http://bit.ly/2AZ39qL
