CasaTunes and KNX

Built-in KNX support in every CasaTunes music server

A brief introduction to KNX taken from the KNX Web Site:

"...Automation doesn't have to be difficult. It simply requires a system that does away with the problems of isolated devices by ensuring that all components communicate via one common language. The kind of device you want to use doesn't matter anymore.

Whether you want to control lighting, shutters, security systems, energy management, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning systems, signaling and monitoring systems, interfaces to service and building control systems, remote control, audio and video control,... All these functions work via an uniform system. This is called the principle of interworking. This is home and building control made easy. This is KNX..."

The benefits of KNX include: future proof technology, endless flexibility and personalization, safe and secure system, quick and easy installation, all backed by an international community

Seamless Integration

Simplified Setup using the CasaTunesX App

Integrating KNX support into CasaTunes is a breeze and is free!

Out-of-the-box KNX support is provided by the CasaTunes Driver for KNX which is automatically installed as part of your CasaTunes system.

In less than five minutes you can, using the CasaTunesX App on any of our supported devices, quickly configure your CasaTunes zones, assign KNX panels to zones, and setup your Featured Items and Playlists (aka presets), Chimes and Tasks to use with your KNX project.

CasaTunes exposes a rich set of control functions you can program to control rooms, control playback, select music, play chimes, and execute tasks.

  • Room Properties: Power, Volume, Mute, Source, Balance, Bass, Treble, and Loudness Compensation
  • Control Playback: Play, Pause, Stop, Next Song, Previous Song, Repeat and Shuffle
  • Select Music: Featured Items and Playlists (aka Presets), Chimes
  • Tasks: Run complex multi-step CasaTunes smart tasks (macros) with the simple push of a button
  • Other: Display Metadata, Power All Rooms

CasaTunes provides a robust set of control and state reading functions designed to support a plurality of KNX panels, by providing many alternate Datapoint Types for different functions.

To simplify setup and minimize KNX bus traffic, you can filter which CasaTunes control and state reading functions should be included in your KNX project.

Use the CasaTunesX App to export a CSV file containing all the Group Address information for all your CasaTunes KNX control and state reading functions for each zone. Importing this CSV file into your KNX projects using ETS 5 or later, results in a streamlined and trouble free configuration.
