We start this month with a profile on Rafal Borek, director of KNX value-added distributor Home of Technologies, in which he shares his vision for the UK market and how developers and other trades can be encouraged to embrace KNX.
This is followed by Simon Buddle asking how involved KNX systems integrators should become with specifying and understanding heating systems. I think you can guess the answer: very! He explains why.
Next are some great practical tips on what to consider for blind control, by Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg. Mark describes the types of motor typically used, and how to apply actuators, contact closures and control to them.
Finally, we have a refreshingly-honest case study by Paul Foulkes of Echohouse Energy about installing KNX in his own home. The design is particularly interesting for its ability to adapt to physical and mental capacities that might change over time.
Don't forget to check out the latest news, as well as the 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.
