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
  • Blind and Shutter Control: Individual Control , Group & Central Control
  • Operation and Visualisation: Switches / Push Buttons , PC Visualisation , Touch Panels & Display Panels , Tablets and smart phones
  • Automation and Remote Access: Timed Functions

Customer's description

The illumination control is at 75 guest rooms, 2 restaurants, 2 pools, event room, meeting room, SPA, GYM and toy library, the differents types of control are through DALI, phase cut dimming and conmutation, all this is possible to control by 375 push buttons, 12 touchscreens and 1 BMS, the system is compound by 32 KNX TP lines through and IP Backbone, all this work was possible thanks to the Migdal Architect Studio, in particular by Architects Jaime Varón, Abraham Meta and Alex Meta, for Meyer Davis who performance de interior design, for Grupo MAI, who made lighting design and by Estevez Building Automation Solutions who support at KNX design
