For communication, 230V cabling (Power line) is used or a low-voltage bus-system, radio signals or IP. KNX is multi-application and controls lighting, heating, blinds, ventilation but also media and security technology. This creates an efficient system that can fulfil any individual need.
Thanks to its networking capabilityone can realize functions that could before only be realized with considerable technical effort. Across the bus line, sensors such as motion detectors and thermostats give instructions to-actuators, which in turn then control for example lighting, heating or air conditioning in the house. The operation of the system can be carried out as conventionally via pushbuttons or touch panels. Remote control via the Internet or operation via the telephone is however also possible with KNX.
An alternative to the wired (two-wire line) transmission of data within the bus system is radio transmission, via the mains network or via the Internet (IP). Radio transmission is ideal for renovation in existing buildings.
