Step 1: Learn the basics with the online ETS eCampus

The real magic of developing an smart home project with KNX is in our innovative software, the ETS. Our online campus provides you with a great introduction to the basics of ETS so that you can easily start with confidence on your first project.

To start with the ETS eCampus you will only have to create a personal MyKNX account. Through interactive lessons and video training you will learn the basic concepts and how to set-up a project, as simulated exercises help you to deepen your knowledge. With the ETS eCampus you can learn at your own pace: work through step by step, test your knowledge after each lesson, repeat a step if you fail and delight in your learning progress.

Finished your lessons successfully (with a grade of minimum 85 %)? Congratulations! You will receive a certificate and a discount voucher to buy your first ETS Lite license. You have now gained the first insights into smart home and smart building control with KNX.  

Step 2: Configure your virtual smart home device with KNX Virtual

KNX Virtual helps you to learn the basics and gain more confidence in working with KNX.

KNX Virtual is a Windows-based application simulating a KNX device. The tool does not require any investment in hardware (such as power supply, USB or IP interface, KNX devices) as you will work with virtual devices for testing with the ETS software. 

KNX Virtual allows you to get acquainted with the KNX technology and set up a simulated KNX installation for free. You can add different devices in your digital smart home, for example light switches, temperature control, presence and motion sensors… and develop routines.

You can easily download KNX Virtual via your MyKNX account. Simply go to our shop and add ‘KNX Virtual’ to your shopping basket. You will not be charged while finishing the order and will receive an email with a link to download the tool afterwards.
