KNX Awatd 2018

The race is on: until 24 November 2017, companies from any country around the world can compete for the coveted KNX Award 2018. Since 1998 the prestigious award has been one of the most important institutions and distinctions in the field of home and building systems technology. It distinguishes the most innovative, ground-breaking and intelligent solutions in the industry worldwide. Traditionally, the award is presented every two years in the 5 categories of ‘International’, ‘Publicity’, ‘Energy Efficiency’, ‘Youth’ and ‘Special’ at the world’s leading Light+Building (L+B) trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany. This will once again be the case at next year’s biggest event during L+B 2018, the KNX TOP Event 2018, in front of more than 2,000 spectators from nearly 80 countries.

KNX Award is an absolute must-have!

Looking back on the successful history of the KNX Award, Franz Kammerl, President of the KNX Association says, “The KNX Award is an absolute must-have for all KNX project developers who want to emphasise their innovative spirit, their know-how and their ingenuity in the implementation of sophisticated projects for the intelligent connection of buildings, as well as being sure to attract a lot of attention.”

And it has never been easier for interested parties to compete for the coveted award. At, you can submit your own project in just four easy steps and with just a few clicks.

But what if your project does not win this time? No problem – Having your KNX project uploaded to the KNX Project Platform will grant you exposure before, during and after the KNX Award Ceremony. Being accessed by potential clients all over the world, the newly launched platform offers you more visibility in the worldwide markets.

Highly-qualified expert jury decides in December

In December, a jury will select the best projects in the five categories of ‘International’, ‘Publicity’, ‘Energy Efficiency’, ‘Youth’ and ‘Special’ from all applications received by 24 November 2017. The size and scope of the KNX installations are not the deciding factors. The focus is instead on criteria such as the variety of included trades, flexibility and expandability, degree of automation and complexity of the installation, user-friendliness and user acceptance as well as the use of products from different manufacturers. The jury is made up of neutral experts from the KNX world and KNX Association.

As KNX President, Franz Kammerl emphasis, “Technical advances in home and building systems technology are taking place on both a large and small scale as well as all over the world. With its evaluation criteria and the fact that it is awarded for each continent in the individual categories, the KNX Award takes this into account. It is therefore open to all KNX projects worldwide. Competing for the award is worthwhile!” In addition to the coveted KNX Cup, all award winners will receive a prize of EUR€1000.
