IoMETER 2G will offer, thanks to the purchase of the appropriate service, data in KNX from and to CLOUD to allow the analysis of consumption data.
The True Presence® KNX is the world’s first true presence detector. It reliably detects the presence of a person regardless of activity. Micro-movements of a person's vital functions, such as breathing, or slight movements of the shoulders are sufficient for precision detection. There is no need for any stay-ON time. The person's distance from the sensor and direction of movement are also registered. This means that True Presence® KNX provides key information for managing tomorrow's buildings and opens up new applications. The sensors of the True Presence® product family are easily controlled via apps and can be wirelessly interconnected via Bluetooth.
The new KNXPM Supply Management ETS app is so good that you won´t need to use Excel (or that old sketch pad) anymore to track your stock, budget expenses and distributors, and it´s free. The main advantage for a KNX Partner is ETS: one tool to set up and commission the project. Why leave the non-KNX components and equipment (cable, connectors, servers…) out from the project? Manage your whole catalogue and/or import catalogues from your favourite distributors, then manage your stock and budget. Export your list of materials in Word or Excel. Enjoy looking at the dashboard and having everything under control. Chinese language included.
SIMip opens a simple way to connect IP network devices directly to KNX. Arbitrary end devices having suitable TCP/IP connectivity can be converted to real KNX IP devices and be controlled via the bus system by remote, by voice, by smartphone or just conventional switches. SIMip provides all necessary functions and includes the KNX-certified communication system. No complex handling is needed to make KNX accessible to non-KNX applications. The original non-KNX application can remain unchanged. SIMip supports up to 1024 objects and provides a web front end to update the firmware remotely via IP/Ethernet. A generic ETS database entry for further adaptation can be downloaded from the TAPKO website.

KNX Motivity Plus White, this elegant motion detector has a built-in brightness and temperature sensor, on top of its motion detecting capabilities. The Motivity Plus Black supports motion and temperature sensing. You can install it surface-mount or flush-mount. Thanks to an all-in-one and robust fixture, you can install the Motivity Plus 100% seamlessly in your interior and create a true designer look throughout your project. Top design meets great functionality. This subtle detector (ø 73 mm) has a great action radius up to 8m, a range up to 10m and a 360° detection area.
The new flush-mounted KNX actuators are available in three versions: The universal dimmer DU 1 KNX is optimised for dimmable LEDs and offers an adjustable dimming curve and automatic load detection. The blind actuator JU 1 KNX with its sun protection and ventilation function ensures an optimal indoor climate. High switching loads (16 A / 740 A peak) are reliably switched with the switch actuator SU 1 KNX. Each of the flush-mounted actuators has two binary inputs for button/switch or temperature sensor. The power supply is provided by the KNX bus voltage.
The new design Touch ambiento fascinates with its purist Bauhaus design. It combines timeless elegance with a modern display and processor hardware. The 16-inch full HD dis-play with its frameless genuine glass front seems to levitate in front of the wall. A bicolour LED can signal various states. The panels can optionally be equipped with a digital input and output, a KNX interface and a power supply via PoE. The consistent system design in industrial quality ensures long-life and maintenance-free systems.

The new KNX SMI actuators by Warema allow 16 SMI or SMI LoVo motors (depending on the actuator) to be controlled in up to 16 groups independently of each other. Standard commercial (venetian blind) push buttons can be connected by integrated binary inputs. Access by emergency/manual control is easy either by means of buttons on the actuator, ETS DCA or smartphone app (Bluetooth LE). Just as simple: commissioning by SMI Key ID via ETS or motor search/allocation by app. The smart SMI motors provide feedback on the position of the sun shading system and send any error messages.
Secure on IP: KNX IP Security enables secure connection for PCs or visualisations as well as secure routing over IP with full compatibility with existing KNX devices or installations. The new KNX IP Interface 732 secure and KNX IP Router 752 secure are the logical evolution of our successful KNX IP series. The devices have a compact design with a width of only 18mm and are powered by the KNX bus. KNX Security can be activated and deactivated as an option in ETS. The buttons and LEDs on the device allow a local diagnosis of the current operating status and possible communication errors.
KNX for HVAC applications: The KNX gate-way 886 enables easy integration of Modbus devices that support the RTU protocol via RS-485. The gateway can act both as a master and as a slave. The data of the application are mapped to Group Objects according to the KNX Datapoint types and vice versa. The assignment between KNX objects and RTU registers is flexible via parameters in ETS®. The device has a width of only 18 mm. Three coloured LEDs on the front of the device visualise the connection and operating status.
Capacitive touch panel with a backlit 3.5” display, humidity sensor and internal temperature probe. Up to 42 controls/indicators can be configured, distributed in up to 7 pages. It includes two independent thermostats and 4 inputs. A screensaver with date, time and/or temperature can be set, returning to the menu automatically when the user approaches thanks to its proximity sensor. It can display a full-screen picture. Its brightness can be regulated by the ambient luminosity sensor. It also measures the relative humidity and calculates the dewpoint. It is possible to set alarms for humidity and for the condensation on a surface. Available in white, anthracite, silver and gloss white.
The basic functionality of the device is coupling a KNX TP (Twisted Pair) main line with a KNX RF sub line. With the media coupler, it is possible to address every bus device in the bus system. It can be used as a receiver for ZF’s KNX RF push button module and other KNX RF devices. The media coupler can be configured via the ETS5 software tool using a product database which is already integrated in the ETS."
With the KNX rotary sensor, complex KNX functions can be easily controlled using intuitive conventional operation. You can operate all building functions by turning and pressing the control button: e.g. light on/off, dimming, blinds up/down, brightness values, temperatures, calling up and saving light scenes and more. The rotary sensor also has three binary inputs for potential-free contacts. This means that conventional switches can also be connected to the bus. The KNX rotary sensor is available in all common Swiss push button designs and in the exclusive JUNG design - in various colours, for every taste.
