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 , Constant Light Control
  • Operation and Visualisation: Web Servers

Customer's description

KNX / DALI lighting system of the new and ultra-modern headquarters of the Facile.IT company in Cagliari in Sardinia. The system provides for constant regulation on multiple levels in the programmers room, call center and account. The system is equipped with 5 dali lines for a total control of 252 lighting bodies which guarantee two levels (direct and indirect) on each lighting body. The presence and light sensors allow to activate the constant regulation logics according to the external input. The three rows of workstations are regulated autonomously considering the presence of the operators and the level of illumination required in that specific area. Presence / absence scenarios, integration with activation and deactivation of the anti-intrusion system and integration with the supervision system in Bacnet IP. There are also timers activated for the enhancement of the green area in a central position to the whole structure.
