KNX - Full Home Control and Automation
KNX Association is the creator and owner of the KNX technology – the worldwide STANDARD for all applications in home and building control, ranging from lighting and shutter control to various security systems, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, monitoring, alarming, water control, energy management, metering as well as household appliances, audio and lots more. The technology can be used in new as well as in existing home and buildings.
What is KNX?
KNX is a communication protocol that is built into the hardware of each device connected to an intelligent home system. There are over 300 manufacturers creating new and exciting products with the KNX protocol to allow customers a huge choice when selecting lighting controls, heating controls and other home automation devices. This gives installers and consumers a huge choice of products and options when designing a system.
The KNX technology is the result of the pooling of knowledge and experience gained over the last 15 years with the predecessor technologies to KNX, i.e. the European Installation Bus (EIB), the European Home System (EHS) and BatiBUS.
KNX is the only home and building control standard running global certification schemes for products, training centres (vocational and private institutions) and even for persons (electrical contractors, building designers).
KNX Association requires a high level of production and quality control during all stages of the product life. Therefore all manufacturing members have to show compliance to ISO 9001 before they even can apply for a KNX product certification.
KNX ensures high product quality
Besides the manufacturer compliance to ISO 9001, the products have to comply with the requirements of the European as well as International standard for Home and Building Electronic Systems. In case of doubt, KNX Association is even entitled to have certified products retested or can require from the manufacturer test reports underlying his declaration of hardware conformity.
The KNX certification process ensures that different products of different manufacturers used in different applications operate and communicate with each other. This ensures a high degree of flexibility in the extension and in the modification of installations. Product compliance is checked at neutral laboratories (third parties).
