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

Bei diesem Projekt wurde ein Einfamilienhaus ganzheitlich automatisiert. Bei dem Projekt handelt es sich um einen Neubau. Zur vollständigen und zufrieden stellenden Umsetzung wurde ein Lastenheft und ein Pflichtenheft erstellt. Anhand des mit dem Bauherren besprochenen Pflichtenheft wurde die Programmierung umgesetzt. Anschließend wurden die Funktionen eingehend getestet und anschließend in den Langzeittest gegeben. Alle Geräte wurden sachgemäß beschriftet und können somit einfach gewartet werden. Abschließend wird die Steuerung der KNX Anlage über ein IOT Gateway für die Bedienung via Smartphone vorbereitet. Alle Raumfunktionen sind im groben über Taster in den Räumen bedienbar, über Smart Devices kann schließlich eine detailliertere Bedienung erfolgen.
