Whether it is a family home or a business complex, there is a growing demand for comfort and versatility in managing air conditioning, lighting and access control. At the same time, efficient use of energy is important. More comfort and security associated with reduced energy consumption can only be achieved if intelligent management and control of all involved products is performed. This, however, implies multiple wiring, which is performed from sensors and actuators to control and monitoring centers. Such wiring mass in turn requires greater effort in design and installation.
In order to control the data transfer of all components in the management of objects, the system is bound to deal with the problems of isolated devices, ensuring that all components are communicated through one common language: in short, the KNX Bus system is indispensable. Via the KNX media to which all Bus devices are connected (two-wire, radio frequency, power line or IP / Ethernet), they exchange information. Bus devices can be sensors or actuators needed to control equipment in facilities such as: lighting, blinds / shutters, security systems, power management, heating, cooling and ventilation systems, signaling and monitoring systems, service connection and facility management, remote control, measurements, audio / video monitoring, white technology, etc. All these functions can be controlled, monitored and announced via the same system without the need for additional control centers.
Intelligent technology in construction does not only offer flexibility, convenience, and safety. She is quite worth it. In the long run, you can reduce the usual cost by up to 30% compared to traditional solutions, although KNX costs are far greater than the costs of traditional planning solutions. For electrical installations the most important is the planning phase. At the same use costs are dramatically reduced. Reason: Initial investment costs typically carry 25% of total investment costs. However, operating costs when the building is already in use is 75%. And it is precisely in this segment that great savings can be made. As time goes by, your requirements for managing objects will also be changed. You have the freedom to link object functions in later stages. Your installer will be able to install KNX low-cost management components at a later date without the need for wall scrapping and opening. the possibility that a few generations of residents will live in a private home, or that commercial assets will be changed for other purposes due to reorganization, new owners or tenants.
