Our articles this month start with a case study by Alistair Grice of mySmartCTI on The King’s School Science Learning Centre in Australia. The project involved KNX for lighting and shade control, energy and water metering and interfaces to HVAC and natural ventilation systems. This is followed by Simon Buddle of Future Ready Homes, who explains how smart metering will be UK-wide by 2020, and why KNX manufacturers should look at providing interfaces to these systems.
Next, Nikita Thompson of Ivory Egg presents us with the first of her series on heating control using KNX. Part 1 covers getting the temperature onto the KNX bus, and the three main types of regulation. Hrayr Kegham Dantziguian of Building Automation Training Center then provides us with an illuminating insight into the Lebanese market, and looks forward to the official launch of KNX Userclub Lebanon.
In his last contribution for KNXtoday, KNXin's Jesús Arias García opens our eyes to the benefits of a modular approach to projects. We want to thank Jesús for a fantastic series of articles that have been both thought-provoking and inspirational, and we are confident that the industry will benefit from his new role with the KNX Association.
And finally, Hans Walltin of systems integrator Walltin Building Control provides an excellent follow-on from Nikita's article with some practical tips on how to plan for climate control in different rooms. Indeed we welcome suggestions/contributions to our 'How to Solve it' column, so if you would like to share some of your expertise to benefit the industry as a whole, please get in touch.
Don’t forget that you can comment at the end of these articles, and do remember to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our 'Where is KNX?' gallery. Enjoy!
