We start this month with a case study by Jon Payne of Entech of a new centre for medicine at the University of Leicester. This award-winning project involved using KNX to enable the building to be controlled to Passivhaus standards on a scale never before achieved in the UK.
Back from the CEDIA Expo in Dallas, USA, our regular columnist, Simon Buddle, explains why voice control is likely to be the future of interfaces between people and KNX systems, and gives some practical examples.
Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg advises on how to choose KNX products, and provides useful charts to help compare different brands of manifold controllers and dimmers.
And finally, Paul Foulkes of EchoHouse Energy makes the case for choosing KNX for the style of its products as well as its functionality, and introduces us to the KNX retrofit of his own home.
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!
