KNX Association at Light Building 2018

KNX IoT city at Galleria

KNX Association will present the latest technologies and applications at the KNX IoT city at Galleria at the Frankfurt Fairground during Light + Building 2018. This main KNX booth will be the most impressive KNX presentation with a surface of more than 700 square meters and a wide range of different areas to visit:

Secure IoT Solution Area with Fairhair Alliance and Thread Group
KNX Association in liaison with Thread Group and Fairhair Alliance will have a joint area presenting the Secure IoT Solution at the KNX IoT city.

Visiting the area of Thread Group will show you how to extend the so-called “KNX Classic” (traditional installations made with TP) with further possibilities, like IP-based solutions within one common installation. Thanks to the creation of KNX IoT protocols such devices will be more native part of the KNX ecosystem.

By visiting the area of Fairhair Alliance, you can learn how KNX Association is working on creating better standards and protocols to be used on top of IP networks. With this liaison we showcase how to use IP based networks and to keep the way IP is used and shared on more layers.

The KNX Technology Area with IoT, Secure, RF panels

The KNX IoT panel: The KNX IoT Area will demonstrate how KNX extends its current system by fully IP-based communication by means of a KNX IoT Demonstrator. The KNX IoT Demonstrator will include solutions of the Thread based network, as well as the conclusions reached by Fairhair Alliance.

The KNX Secure panels: From a concept to reality! KNX Association is proud to present the first available KNX Secure devices. Covering KNX IP Secure and KNX Data Secure, the famous double protection by KNX Association can now be implemented. Secure your existing installations or start with a completely new installation! KNX Secure offers now the highest standard of Security for smart homes and smart buildings.

The KNX RF panel: No cables, fully programmable with ETS and Secure! KNX RF combines all futuristic features and makes them available to you! The KNX RF Panel impressively demonstrates a selection of available KNX RF devices, which will turn your home into a smart home without the need for cabling.

The Applications Area by the KNX Professionals

KNX finds its use in various applications and solutions, from residential to commercial, from small to large. However, what they all have in common: They are all Secure! Using the latest KNX Secure devices, all shown installations demonstrate how important data is secured with AES128 encryption, which is used in KNX Secure!

The KNX Secure stand in hall 9.1 F86

This stand is dedicated to KNX Secure. Security has been one of KNX’s key features. As time goes, the safety requirements of KNX installations are growing. Critical and confidential information is increasingly transmitted due to extended application areas. How to protect in future even better media and devices of KNX installations will be an increasing challenge for planners, installers and manufacturers. According to these but also to other requirements KNX has developed new security concepts: KNX Data Secure and KNX IP Secure. Both of them are based on worldwide established security protocols and can be integrated seamlessly into existing KNX systems.
