The worldwide Standard for Home and Building Control KNX provides variable control of multimedia technology throughout the entire home and building. KNX manufacturers are developing solutions for so-called multi-room systems which are becoming increasingly simple and convenient – for both the user as well as the installer.
The show ISE, Integrated Systems Europe, is Europe´s no.1 show for professional AV and electronic systems integrations. At the fair, 13 KNX members are showing solutions for visualization on portable devices (smartphones, tables and PCs), remote communication as well as audio and video applications in home automation at the KNX joint-booth, which are becoming increasingly simple and convenient for green home and building automation. Moreover, in the residential and commercial theatres, as well as the KNX booth, presentations about several topics are given several times a day. Visit us at the booth 12 / C92.
BAB-Technologie GmbH, Germany
The APP MODULE is equipped with a KNX/TP interface and is based on the proven, modular app concept: choose, install, get going. It does not have functionalities ready out of the box, but can be individually customized with apps. For example SONOS devices, Philips hue devices or BOSE components can be integrated into KNX installations in an instant. Here it does not matter if the components are controlled by push-buttons or existing visualizations. Various apps are available via www.bab- appmarket.de and can be combined in an APP MODULE as desired.
Bleu Comm’ Azur SARL, France
KNX proServ, the first device for KNX smartphone control, configured completely with ETS software, can be expanded by an embedded mini server. The new application allows detecting objects in the environment using the smartphone’s camera. Directly in the camera image, the controls are appearing to switch the devices and get full feedback: A button comes up for switching the standing lamp, upon detection of the window the controls for driving the shutter are displayed, when sighting the speaker, the current song is displayed and the volume can be adjusted. Configuration is done by assigning simple photos of the objects to the proServ functions.

Simon SA, Spain
Simon has sparked its imagination to create a new touch interface concept: the new Sense collection. The power of the senses inspires the first modular collection that manages to combine two concepts: touch interface and ergonomics designed for personal use. Sense allows users to mix and match various features for enhanced comfort and control: controls lighting, air conditioning and blinds in any space. It also offers interaction with users, alerting them of the action being performed: By tapping or sliding the finger, users receive haptic feedback through vibration or LED light. The collection offers three versions which allow users to customise the lighting, temperature and blinds.
