KNX and the Internet of Things

Internet of things is a buzzword in the world of information technology. Everyday objects become intelligent and communicate via the internet. This also means that the possibilities for home and building automation are increasing. A home of office where many different objects are connected with each other is no longer a dream but has become reality.

KNX takes a leading position in working with Internet of things and we offer different kinds of IoT solutions. Internet of things opens up new ways in the operation and visualization of KNX systems. We are creating the future of home and building control and Internet of Things will help us succeed.

Why KNX IoT?

The KNX IoT solution will lower the barrier to access KNX as part of the Internet of Things. The aim is to reduce the knowledge required and open the current KNX ecosystem to non-KNX IT specialists through ‘out-of-the-box’ operation, while still allowing advanced configuration and adaption by specialists.

Leveraging standards ensures that the value of KNX products is increased and long-term support can be guaranteed in a constantly changing IoT world. KNX has the advantage of a large KNX install base, which allows drawing on a wealth of experience that will help successfully extending the KNX integration into the Internet of Things.

The KNX IoT solution is defined in partnership with key KNX manufacturers and standardisation bodies (like Fairhair and the Thread group).
