KNX has long been celebrated for its robust wired automation systems, characterized by its signature green cabling. However, when renting, renovating or retrofitting your home, the cost and disruption of laying new cables can be prohibitive. This is where KNX RF changes the game, offering the seamless integration of wireless connectivity into your soon-to-be renovated KNX home.

KNX RF explained

In a nutshell, KNX RF is KNX’s wireless extension that seamlessly integrates with your smart home using radio frequencies. So instead of its famous green cable that runs through your walls, KNX RF consists of components like sensors, controllers, actuators and switches that communicate using a mesh network throughout your home. All this whilst still being connected to your decentralized KNX infrastructure.

On a more philosophical level, KNX RF represents a natural evolution of the KNX ecosystem. Catering specifically to homeowners looking to expand or retrofit their automation systems without the hassle for extensive wiring.

The freedom of a wireless KNX integration

The primary advantage of KNX RF lies in its wireless nature. By utilizing RF technology, your smart devices can communicate wirelessly with your current KNX system, eliminating the need for new cabling. This wireless integration translates into significant benefits for renovated homes:

Seamlessly compatible with KNX wired technology

Obviously, KNX RF maintains full compatibility with the broader KNX ecosystem. This means that KNX RF devices can communicate harmoniously with both wired and wireless KNX installations, ensuring a cohesive and unified smart home experience.

Homeowners can pick and choose from the expansive range of KNX-certified products, from lighting controls and HVAC systems to security features, all seamlessly integrated through KNX RF. Leading KNX manufacturers worldwide support KNX Rf with their smart solutions and devices. For example, GIRA and Jung have an array of KNX RF compatible devices.

Easy integration and flexible installation

The implementation of KNX RF, and KNX RF devices, is designed for homeowners as well as renters. The smart devices are typically battery-operated or can be powered by energy harvesting, negating the need for mains wiring. This simplicity not only accelerates the installation process but also enhances the scalability of your smart home network post-renovation.

If you're considering enhancing your renovated home with KNX RF, consult with a certified KNX professional to explore the possibilities to shift your smart home towards a smarter, more connected future.


KNX RF represents a compelling solution for homeowners and renters looking for a way to integrate smart home technology into their renovated living spaces without the constraints and hassle of traditional cabling. By leveraging wireless connectivity within the trusted KNX framework, KNX RF offers a pathway to a more efficient, flexible, and future-ready home automation system.
