ETS Apps

KNX at light+building 2012


1. ETS Apps – Functional, Flexible, Tailormade

 ETS Apps – Functional, Flexible, Tailormade

There are apps for iPhone, for smart phones, for tablet PCs – and now there are new KNX apps for the Engineering Tool Software ETS4. In principle, the ETS Professional is sufficient for users wishing to install and configure KNX systems. Just as for mobile phones, users may however wish additional functionality when applying KNX. As not all can be part of the ETS 4 basic functionality, ETS apps will soon be offered in the KNX online shop.

KNX city at light+building 2012

In 2012 KNX will push the limits and demonstrate excellence: the KNX Association presents itself larger than ever before at the Light+Building in Frankfurt from 15th to 20th April 2012. The latest technologies and applications for the worldwide standard in home and building automation are shown at four different stands. 

KNX city at the Galleria will probably be the most impressive KNX presentation at the Frankfurt trade fair. KNX occupies an area of more than 700 square metres – that’s over three and a half times as much space as the KNX stand at Light+Building 2010 – the largest to date. The space is divided into nine areas: presentation of KNX city and Green Technology, applications by 16 system integrators, the latest ETS apps, presentation of KNX members and their latest products, the KNX community and a home and social network area. A KNX competition, a cinema and a shop are also part of KNX city. A total of 123 KNX experts from 26 countries will be present at KNX city over the entire week.

KNX-based "e-house" (ZVEH, 8.0 / J60)

The special show “The e-house: combining energy, efficiency, electrical engineering and intelligence” has been put together for professionals, by professionals, to bring the subject of energy efficiency to life. The “e-house” is a 160-square metre model house with seven rooms, specially built to demonstrate proven, practical, functional KNX building automation applications. Built on a scale of 1:1, it shows just what is possible today with building automation. The components, all networked via KNX, and from a variety of different manufacturers, will all be in operation during the fair. Thanks to the networking and intelligent coordination of the individual KNX components in the system, energy is deployed and used with maximum efficiency.
