The creativity of the designer is now called upon, thereby bringing closer the goal of creating expressive and thrilling architecture which is both ecological and profitable. One thing is clear: We control climate change!
"If buildings are not loved by people then it is most probably detrimental for the complete sustainability".
Nicole Kerstin Berganski
"The question here is: what is comfort? This is very extensive, if one wants to philosophize".
" . . . that one tries, to run the building so it always runs in the ideal situation, the building regulates itself in the ideal situation".
"There are probably few areas, which are so exciting and swing back and forth between design and technology like lighting".
Unlimited scope for design in lighting, higher energy efficiency and reduced life cycle costs due to the only open worldwide standard for home and building systems technology.
International Uniform Standard
Planners, investors and architects increasingly choose home and building system technology based on the International Standard KNX.
Flexibility in Usage
The KNX standard offers a high level of flexibility , due to the fact that a building can quickly de altered to accommodate new demands or completely new uses can be introduced.
One System for all Applications
All possible applications & functions ranging from lighting, shutter control to security, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, monitoring, alarm system, water control, energy management, metering as well as household appliances, audio and lots more
Comfort is Important
After installation of the KNX bus, the worry about if the blinds need to be used to block out the sun in order to prevent the room from overheating, if lighting need to be dimmed, etc. will be taken care of.
Security always On
A security system can be integrated using KNX. Via the bus it would be indicated if doors or windows were closed, if equipment was switched off, if unwanted guests were in the builiding, if a fire had broken out, etc.
KNX can be implemented for the building´s own internal communication system. Additionally, data can be transmitted externally for security, for maintenance service, for communication, etc.
The bus technology can be correctly implemented straight off thereby compensating for its own costs.
International Manufacturer Association
Over 320 KNX Members ensure a wide range of available products, which are 100% compatible. This makes KNX unique when compared to other bus systems.
