Building Automation with KNX
KNX Technology is the worldwide standard for all applications in home and building control.
In order to transfer control data to all building management components, a system is required that does away with the problems of isolated devices by ensuring that all components communicate via one common language: in short, a system such as that provided by KNX technology.
At Alt Electrical we are an official KNX partner and the installation and management of the KNX systems is what we specialise in.
We service nationwide, possess over 20 years of experience, and have a dedicated and professional team of engineers. If you want to move your home into the 21st century then KNX Home Automation is what you need. Contact us for more information or visit our other website, www.alt-electrical.co.uk.
Advantages of a KNX Smart Home:

- Increased comfort and security in the home
- Time saving
- A KNX installation can be easily adapted to new applications and is easily extendable. New components can be easily connected to the existing installation
- Money savings: applications are only turned on when needed thus saving energy and money
- Adaptable to both newly built and exiting homes
KNX - Energy Efficient homes
Responsibility for the energy used in buildings has come to the top of the agenda for commercial building managers and owners. This is in part the result of the certification that came into force from April 2008 - Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and Display Energy Certificates (DECs). The pressure is on to make continuous energy savings through effective building management. Systems that track the energy performance of a building in real time can identify all areas where there is need for improvement, allowing the owner or occupier to take steps to further improve energy efficiency.
Major commercial building owners are rapidly accepting KNX as the best available technology to achieve maximum energy efficiency. It has a number of advantages over alternative solutions. For example, it has the ability to be integrated with any type of BEMS (Building Energy Management System) thanks to its open protocol OPC Gateway. Once this integration has been achieved, the other advantages of KNX come into play to bring local and zonal control to every area of a building.
