KNX ‘IoT’ (Internet of things) is a buzzword in the world of information technology. Everyday objects become intelligent and communicate via the internet. This also means that the possibilities for home and building automation are increasing.
KNX IoT is an inclusive technology supporting a diverse range of interactions between KNX and 3rd devices. One of the most popular services for IoT is that of ‘IFTTT‘ (If this, then that), which allows you to control your KNX system via our support home systems such as Alexa or Google Home. For example: When leaving your home you could say ‘Hey Alexa, I’m going shopping‘ which would prompt Alexa to switch off all lighting and heating as well as other devices such as your oven, etc…. of course this is completely customisable to suit the end user.
