Having designed a passive house with a ground surge heat pump and solar panels for optimum energy efficiency, the clients needed a smart building solution that could automate multiple functions and applications for optimal coordinated control.
The awnings, window treatments, heating, humidity control, AC, and lighting are all controlled using components and applications from a range of manufacturers. KNX allowed the entire system to communicate seamlessly in a single communication network.
The clients are big music lovers and wanted an emphasis on AV, with a high-quality audio integrated into the home automation system. KNX allowed us to interface the building control with the Savant smart home system for a premium solution that offers a high level of personalisation and uses Sonos as the music platform.
