Envision Z-Wave server is now available. It has integrated Z-Wave controller, allowing the bidirectional interaction between KNX and Z-Wave devices and providing, in this way, more power and flexibility to the building. Available in 7” and 10”, Envision can be easily mounted on wall and even personalized according to the location where it will be installed. Stylish frames made of anodized aluminum are available in black, silver, dark grey, gold and in white (matte).
Among the already existing integrations of KNX, Z-Wave, Modbus and BTicino Legrand, ThinKnx has included AMAZON ECHO and soon APPLE HOMEKIT.
Amazon Echo, the smart speaker connected to the voice of the personal assistant Alexa will allow you to manage, through easy vocal commands every function integrated inside ThinKnx system such as lights, temperatures, shutters, security, scenes, multimedia etc.
The voice commands are translated to low level actions independently from the underlying protocol and technology (KNX, Z-Wave, Modbus etc.)
Apple Homekit permits to connect all the integrated protocols to iDevice that will leverage them. In this way, you will be able to command KNX using Siri from your phone, Apple Watch or using the shortcuts created by iOS operating system.
