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

As IKEA believes in the principle of global standardisation, KNX was choice of automation protocol. It being a retail store with different kinds of areas, it had its own lighting requirement Quality of light in every area had to be maintained. Realising Visual Aspect of lighting was very important for 1) to highlight architectural elements, product quality & creates virtual spaces 2) Enhances customers mood and overall shopping experience 3) creating pathway and visual aspect of safety & Comfort for customers. This being large format store, the biggest challenge was to design KNX LCMS System of such massive space. Different kinds of lights required different lighting modes in all the areas. Some areas in the store had BUS DUCT trunking and devices had to be installed in these ducts. LCMS has the capabilities of stand-alone operation with full automatic functionality. It is interfaced with BMS and also give remote control on Mobile & also provide future upgrade.
