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
