On 28 September during the first day of KNXperience we will be premiering ETS6 - the most important KNX software tool to date. ETS6 comes with a lot of changes in different domains, maintaining and further promoting KNX as the smart, secure and open standard for home and building automation. Join us for the ETS6 launch by registering at https://www.knxperience.org
ETS6 offers an improved user experience through an optimised user interface and licensing system. An adaptive and completely redesigned dashboard is provided, and a lot of additional useful metadata has been included to help users quickly find and access their projects. Key 'smart' feature include:
ETS5 Professional was the first ETS Professional version able to deal with KNX Data Secure and KNX IP Secure devices. ETS6 further improves the handling of those devices, but also supports latest KNX system extensions for safer KNX installations, easier topology scaling and new-generation RF devices. To do so, ETS6 supports couplers with segment coupler and security proxy functionality, allowing existing projects to be extended easily with devices supporting security or RF. Key 'secure' features include:
ETS6 supports the KNX IoT system, allowing KNX installations to be even more open to the rest of the ‘non-KNX world'. KNX IoT represents KNX in the outside world by implementing semantic project information and tagging through the KNX IoT third-party API - a graphical user interface in which objects mimic their real-world counterparts in how they appear and/or how a user can interact with them. Key 'open' features include:
Continuation of 30 years of backward-compatibility - all existing KNX- (and EIB-) certified devices can still be configured with ETS6. Moreover, ETS6 maintains compatibility with existing plug-ins, DCAs and ETS apps.
