KNX is a global, open international building control standard that enables the integration and programming of products from a range of manufacturers using a single software tool. The KNX Standard has been eagerly adopted by many international manufacturers who together provide a vast array of compatible KNX-certified products. In the UK, the KNX open standard is actively promoted and supported by the membership of KNX UK, the national association of manufacturers, integrators, wholesalers and trainers. Choosing from the KNX pool of interoperable technology, integrators and contractors can create customised, whole-building control solutions by bringing together a variety of off-the-shelf components. These products all "speak the same language” and can operate together across the same network. That means more functionality, yet less cabling.
