Our articles this month start with a practical description by Julio Díaz García of Sapienx Automation on how to integrate other control protocols with KNX in large installations using NetxAutomation software.
Our regular columnist, Simon Buddle, then explains why it makes sense to use a weather sensor in conjunction with under-floor heating, especially during winter. Next, Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg gives some great advice on how to sell KNX, with some practical examples from the residential and commercial markets.
Finally, we are pleased to welcome Paul Foulkes of EchoHouse, who introduces his three-part series aimed at building planners. Part 1 focuses on why it makes sense to integrate community energy into new buildings.
Don't forget to check out our resources section which is packed full of useful information, and don't forget 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!
