Making Technology Work Together
Welcome to KNX NZ. We are the national organisation that promotes both KNX technology and our members across New Zealand. Our aim is to ensure that KNX technology is the first choice for architects, engineers, consultants and installers in the development of intelligent buildings in both the residential and commercial sectors across New Zealand.
The demand for comfort and versatility in the management of heating, lighting and access control systems for a family home as well as an office complex is growing. At the same time, the efficient use of energy is becoming increasingly important. People want a comfortable, sustainable and safe place to live and work and that’s where automation jumps in.
However, more convenience and safety together with lower energy consumption can only be achieved by intelligent control and monitoring of all products involved. This is a true challenge as it implies more wiring, running from the sensors and actuators to the control and monitoring centres. For professionals, such a mass of wiring also means higher design and installation efforts, increased fire risk and soaring costs. That’s where KNX jumps in!
Realising The Automation Dream
Automation doesn’t have to be difficult. It simply requires a system that does away with the problems of isolated devices by ensuring that all components communicate via one common language. The kind of device you want to use doesn’t matter anymore.
Whether you want to control lighting, shutters, security systems, energy management, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning systems, signalling and monitoring systems, interfaces to service and building control systems, remote control, audio and video control,… All these functions work via an uniform system. This is called the principle of interworking. This is home and building control made easy.
This is KNX.
