What is KNX?

KNX (Konnex) is a standard building automation and home automation protocol that enables the integration of various smart home systems. KNX smart home system integration is the process of combining various devices and systems into a single intelligent network for centralized control and monitoring.

KNX — It is an open standard for residential, commercial and wired automation. This standard is regulated by the KNX Association. In addition, KNX devices can control blinds and shutters, lighting, security systems, HVAC, energy management, appliances, audio, video and + all this is possible from your phone from anywhere in the world!

Here are the main steps and technologies used when integrating a KNX smart home system:

  1. System Design: The process begins with designing a smart home system, including defining requirements, selecting devices, and defining the network structure. At this stage, devices such as sensors, actuators (including lighting, heating, air conditioning), security systems, etc. are determined that will be integrated into the KNX system.

  2. Installation and connection of devices: After design, the devices are installed and connected to the KNX network. This may include the installation of sensors, lights, relays, thermostats and other devices that will be monitored and controlled using the KNX system.

  3. Programming and configuration: In order for the devices to communicate with each other and perform the required functions, the KNX system must be programmed and configured. This includes setting up device addressing, creating group addresses, defining operating logic and control scenarios.

  4. Integration with other systems: One of the key advantages of KNX is its ability to integrate with other smart home systems, such as security systems, audio/video systems, access control systems, etc. This is achieved through use of gateways and communication protocols such as Modbus, BACnet, OPC, etc.

  5. Testing and Configuration: Once the integration is complete, the system is tested and configured to verify its functionality and compliance with customer requirements. This includes testing device functionality, adjusting control settings, and providing user feedback.

  6. User training: After installing and configuring the system, users are trained in how to work with a KNX smart home so that they can effectively use all the functions and capabilities of the system.

Integration of a KNX smart home system requires a comprehensive approach that includes design, installation, programming, integration and configuration of various devices and systems to create an intelligent home control and monitoring environment.

Smart home KNX — This is any set of devices, devices connected to actuators that are automatically controlled and controlled using the KNX system. You can control multiple functions using one home automation system. There is no need for additional control centers. KNX makes things more convenient. Among other things, a KNX smart home also improves the energy efficiency of your building. In addition, it is the most secure smart home standard with AES 128 encryption standard.

The KNX system will not seem outdated to modern users. In addition to a wide range of control functions, all elements of a smart home can be controlled via a smartphone application. KNX can easily integrate with Google Assistant, Alexa and Alice and other new smart home devices such as Sonos, Philips Hue or Fibaro.

Among other things, in the KNX system you can also connect your wireless smart home devices using mobile applications . You can also easily control your KNX smart home using Amazon Alexa, Yandex Alice or Google Assistant.

Wires in the KNX smart home system pass through each wall. Therefore, KNX can be considered as the central nervous system of your home.

KNX is a standardized technology. There are many KNX devices from different manufacturers that are compatible with each other. This is a known reason why the KNX system is so reliable and popular.

What is the KNX smart home application?

Several KNX smart home apps are available, such as the iBEMI control app or the Homey app. They can be used to set function switches, light scenes, dimming, temperature, air conditioning, blinds, RGB, blinds, timers, and also as function activations at preset values.

The iBEMI KNX control app is compatible with Android tablets and phones running Android 5.0 and above. Also compatible with Apple HomeKit, such as iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with iOS 5.0 or later.

It allows you to instantly control your home in just a few clicks. Elements and some control areas can be protected using the secure PIN function. The user-friendly design of the app is easy to navigate with various control functions throughout the home.
