Theben's thePixa KNX optical presence detector detects how many people are in a room and where exactly they are located. This information is used to trigger predefined actions in the KNX building control system. There's also a great deal of added value for building operators, such as flexible options for configuring desk-sharing and optimising room occupancy and building cleaning activities. The area that is covered can be divided into different zones if required. This creates precise subdivisions, enabling precise lighting control in larger rooms and preventing false switching. It is also possible to set up exclusion zones in which detected movements do not trigger any actions.
No dirt, no noise, no bus line – the classic electrical installation is sufficient: the new JUNG KNX RF push-buttons are installed in combination with the JUNG system inserts. An easy and efficient way to quickly install a professional smart home system – ideal for retrofitting or renovations. JUNG KNX RF push-buttons connect the classic electrical installation with KNX: A KNX RF push-button is simply mounted onto a JUNG system insert. This replaces the existing mechanical switch and thus becomes an actuator. The push-button sends and receives the information wire-less, without additional cables and securely encrypted with Data Secure.

Its square lens enables room-typical detection at a maximum mounting height of 12 m. The true presence area covers 81 sqm (9 x 9 m). With tangential detection, it has a range of 576 sqm (24 x 24 m). Its detection is digitally adjustable. As a KNX presence detector, it also detects the temperature and humidity of a room.
The smart switch solo offers residents an excellent room operation in a classic square design. It fits like a conventional KNX switch into the standard flush-mounted box but offers many more options. Light, shading, climate, entertainment or physical access control – solo can be individually configured to suit the installation in the room and allows intuitive operation. The integrated temperature sensor makes a separate room thermostat unnecessary. The frameless real glass front underlines the elegant design. This particularly comes into its own when installed flush to the wall with the optional housing – whether in a smart home, in an office, in a hotel room or a conference room.
As a manufacturer of high-end designer KNX switching gear, they have an elaborate product range with invisible switches, elegant sockets and minimalistic detectors. Tense detectors range from indoor to outdoor and from minimalistic discs to ultraminimal 18mm domes. To complete this range, they have now developed the Motivity Line, a line detector, where the small rectangular head is visible, similar to their Motivity Ceiling device. Simply drill a hole, connect the KNX cable and plug in place. The Motivity Line is a motion detector with integrated lux and temperature sensor. This gem is available in black or white, suiting any mounting surface, and is perfect for hallways, bedsides or staircases.
With the DALI-2 certified DM 4 DALI KNX gateway, up to 30 DALI operating devices per channel can be controlled via broadcast commands. Broadcast communication does not require DALI addressing or grouping and considerably simplifies commissioning and maintenance. The 4-channel gateway also supports the control of the colour and colour temperature of devices according to DALI Device Type 8 (DT8) in a KNX building automation system: For example, the working atmosphere in offices and meeting rooms can be made more pleasant with colder or warmer light. The DM 4 DALI KNX supports KNX Data Secure.
With theMura KNX, high-quality design and comprehensive functionality go hand in hand: the integrated button can be freely parameterised and enables manual switching - regardless of whether it is a motion detector (S) or a presence detector (P). Orientation light, integrated temperature measurement and acoustic function, logic channels and flexible day and night switching offer significant added value for building automation. theMura supports KNX Data Secure. Subsequent updates to the KNX firmware are possible. With optional accessories, theMura can be integrated into many common switch ranges.
The RP341v2 is a complete multiroom sound system for 4 rooms. 4 streamers, 1 DAB+/FM tuner, AUX input and 4 stereo power amplifiers with 2x30 watts each are integrated. The RP341v2 is completely integrated in KNX. It can be controlled via KNX buttons, G1/X1, visualisations (e.g. HomeServer), via the free trivum app or via any web browser. The RP341v2 can be combined with other trivum devices. This means that music from internet radio, Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz, Tidal, AirPlay, NAS or AUX can be heard in up to 64 rooms.
This simple yet striking device combines easy controls with a clear display. In addition to the ring with backlighting and customisable colours, it has four push buttons: temperature measurement unit (°C /°F), fan speed selection, ON/OFF and customisable button. The “mid season” function is designed to best exploit heating and cooling systems. Produced in two colours - grey and white – it is available for the Eikon, Arké, Plana and Idea wiring series. All versions offer a security level guaranteed by the KNX Data Secure protocol.

The new KNX surface-mounted actuator from WAREMA offers reliable control of up to four 230 V sun shading drives and excels with simple, safe installation thanks to manual operation via Bluetooth, replaceable miniature fuses and spring terminals. Furthermore, with the new “connect & secure” series you benefit from the highest encryption standard KNX Secure and an intelligent update function via the bus line. And best of all, the Pro version enables even faster commissioning thanks to automatic runtime detection.
Weinzierl Engineering GmbH presents the KNX IP Interface 740.1 wireless as a new edition of the successful KNX Interface 740 based on WLAN. It can be used by ETS5 or ETS6 as a programming interface. On the laptop, the user simply has to establish the connection via WLAN and ETS will detect the device automatically in the connection manager. Power is supplied from the KNX bus without an external power supply. The wireless bus access allows the installer to move freely in the building. The KNX IP Interface 740.1 wireless is therefore a tool that should not be missing from the laptop bag of a professional KNX installer.
Tecla is Zennio’s newest range of polycarbonate capacitive touch switches. Tecla 55 can be combined with Zennio’s ZS55 frames and electrical accessories, but also with many other standard 55x55 frames to match any design and produce unique combinations. 1, 2, 4 and 6-button versions of the Tecla 55 are available, with each button configurable either individually or as part of a pair (e.g. for blinds or dimming control) and each individually backlit. Backlighting can be configured to respond to the proximity and luminosity sensor and adjust automatically. Tecla 55 also has an input to connect a temperature probe that can be used with the built-in thermostat or solely to send temperature readings to the KNX bus.
