Our articles this month start with a case study by Rafal Borek of Home of Technologies (HoT) in which an electrical contractor was assisted with a KNX solution. This involved HoT presenting the end-client with a solution, and providing the contractor with a specification, manuals, a rack, pre-programmed KNX devices and basic KNX training.
Next, Paul Foulkes of EchoHouse treats us to Part 2 of his three-part series aimed at building planners. This covers planning for community energy integration. Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg then gives some great advice on specifying a KNX system, including practical tips on what to look out for in terms of lighting and HVAC. And finally, our regular columnist, Simon Buddle, rounds off the issue with a light-hearted take on a recent experience involving a well-heeled customer, her bodyguard and some chandeliers.
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!
