When we talk about Building Automation we refer to the integrated management of a building, intended as a system of multiple items and applications coordinated through a smart program. This way, the variation in one of the parameters kept under control by one specific item is able to prompt an action or adjustment in other items and elements of the system.
A building automation system allows the coexistence and interaction of different items, like access control, heating, air conditioning, systems meant to optimize power usage and lighting usage, TVcc, security systems, fire protection systems, etc…
Home automation focuses on the smart managing of residential units, allowing the complete control over the house. With a home automation system, it is possible to check and modify the state of any KNX item installed in the system.
The entire KNX system is controlled through the command displays, which enjoy a modern ultrathin design that can adapt with elegance to any room.
The style is fully customizable, both in the finishing (white or black) and in the graphics of the user screen. It is possible to add maps, layouts, images, and icons to describe your house in the most intuitive way. Most of the models are also equipped with IP network cards to allow you to control the house remotely through your smartphone or your tablet (App are available for iOS, Android and PC). The managing software has no limitation concerning the number of items connected, nor concerning the number of navigation pages in the interface.
All models have LED screens and fanless microprocessors, in line with the strict requirements of silence and energy saving of residential systems. Every touch screen command module is programmed by default for the management of lighting, windows, and air-conditioning. Further options may include power surge control, TVcc management, smart items and timer setting, time-differentiated heating; it is also possible to identify scenarios with pre-programmed responses to specific inputs.
