Welcome What we use for the KNX? Home automation is an up and coming trend that the public looks for in residential houses, apartments, and commercial businesses. Although many techniques used in building automation (such as light and climate control, control of doors and window shutters, security and surveillance systems, etc.) are also used in home automation, additional functions in home automation can include the control of multi-media home entertainment systems, automatic houseplant watering and pet feeding, automatic scenes for dinners and parties, and a more user-friendly control interface. A little history A new solution was found by the Siemens AG with a couple of other electronics manufacturers in 1987. The objective was to create a system, that was able to measure, control, regulate and survey all functions of a building. The concept of this system convinced many electronics manufacturers so that the European Installation Bus Association EIBA was founded on May 8, 1990. The co-operation created a standardized bus system, with the already mentioned demands. Since 1993, more than 100 European firms produce standard fitting EIB products. The EIBA, surveys the compatibility and quality demands and awards the EIB label for products. Programing interface with PC The computer can comunicate with the interface trough RS232 or USB connection! PC Data Interface The RS232 data interface…type:EA/S 232.5 ETS (Engineering Tool Software) is the unique manufacturer independent Tool Software to design and configure intelligent home and building control installations made with the KNX system. Using areas • Light systems -Movement sensors -Light Dimming -Lighting scenes -Shutter controling Dimmer Controller 4 Fold Switch IR Sensor/Switch Dimmer If you have an IR Sensor/Switch, you can also control the brightness of the lamp with the remote controller! Movement Sensor This sensor is able to activate not just a siple lamp…BUT… The shutter can be cotrolled by the sensor and the switch! We can also control the switch with the remote control Brightness Sensor Switch / IR Sensor Remote Control Shutter For Example: In a school, the teacher would like to show some pictures for the students. When the teacher activates the projector… ...In the classroom… …all of the shutters come down… & …all the lights go out!!! Heating sytems Achieve maximum comfort through creation of different temperature zones within the premises – achieve considerable energy savings by presence control and temperature regulation of individual rooms and offices – time dependant temperature profiles – incorporation of boiler control and circulation pumps. 4 mod’s : - At home - Away - Night - Dehumidifier In the comfort mode, the highest temperature level (e.g., 22°C) is selected when heating, and the lowest cooling level (e.g., 24°C) when cooling. In standby mode, the setpoint temperature for the heating is slightly lowered (e.g., to 20°C). In the nighttime mode, the temperature is lowered further when heating (or increased when cooling). When we away from home, there is an exact temperature when the humid precipitates. This function can arrest this process! Remote Controlled Light Remote Controlled Shutter Tomorrow, we will show you the technical and more practical side of this system! And now my colleagues Ferenc and Arnold are going to present you the video application, named CF Media!
