    Hotels solution: Room control for lighting, temperature and blinds




    Value proposition

    Main drivers

    • Cost efficiency and flexibility are particular important for private and commercial buildings. This is where KNX comes into its own:
    • Cost efficiency is drastically improved thanks to the optimum combination of different control levels: presence, brightness, time-dependency for lighting; presence, temperature settings, blind-control for heating and air-conditioning.
    • Flexibility is really improved compared to a traditional installation, adaptation of the building functions layout is very easy when rooms are used for different purposes after re-organisation or a move.
    • Automatic interaction of sensors and actuators avoids relying on uncertain human action and secures savings while providing increased comfort and safety. This enables substantial energy savings of up to 50% and more by automatically extinguishing load when it is not necessary.


    Solution in brief

    • KNX solutions from Schneider Electric offer one system, an international standard and many functions for building automation at small or medium sized buildings.  
    • With KNX many separate commands such as lighting, heating, blinds, air-conditioning, state- and consumption-monitoring are connected and form an intelligent system. KNX bus system unites under one roof functions which were previously controlled separately. Just press a single button to activate all desired functions in one go: blinds are lowered, lighting is switched on and the room is heated to just the right temperature. All functions can be perimeter and extended constantly without damaging the buildings. With a KNX bus system all devices will be connected via a single bus line. This line will be installed in parallel with the 230 V circuit.
    • A KNX project initially will be created and implemented by a skilled electrician or planner/integrator, granting the inflow of user-friendly and cost-efficient functionality. In the following the inhabitant is enabled to configure user-relevant setpoints at multi-functional pushbuttons or graphical user-interfaces to the desired comfort and saving potential. 

    Value proposition

    • The displayed solution architecture provides the following exemplary technical functions:
    • Lighting control - starts/dims el. lighting only at people's presence dependent on the current brightness
    • Heating control - adjusts the requested temperature and sets the heating or cooling into standby mode whenever a window is opened
    • Sunblind control - activates the sun blinds dependant on the current temperature
