KNX Online Training
As Home Automation products have become more popular and accessible, the demand for comfort and versatility in the management of heating, lighting and access control systems for a family home as well as an office complex is growing. People are becoming more aware of their living and working environment and are increasingly looking for an energy efficient and sustainable solution. From an automation perspective, this has previously meant more wires, more devices and naturally higher installation costs and risks.
KNX technology overcomes these hurdles by ensuring that all devices and components speak a common language. Whether you want to control lighting, shutters, security systems, energy management, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning systems, signaling and monitoring systems, interfaces to service and building control systems, remote control, audio and video control,... All these functions work via an uniform system. This is called the principle of interworking. This is home and building control made easy. This is KNX.
