Why is KNX the right technology for making the Energy Transition in smart homes & buildings
The world is slowly but surely moving away from the use of fossil fuels for more renewable energy: also in homes and buildings this will result in drastic changes, for which customers are bombarded with a plethora of different technologies to solve the exercise. The presentation will show why the approach often suggested by competing technologies is not always the right choice for this, as the resulting integration of different application domains in homes & buildings will dramatically increase their complexity. Such complex homes and buildings are at best designed, configured, managed and maintained by competent professionals, for which KNX technology has proven to have the best building blocks.
