Snom shows integration of communication infrastructure with KNX building automation at ISE 2024

Fresh developments in the integration of communication infrastructure and KNX components, a brand new product line for the hospitality industry and a world premiere in its product portfolio – here’s what to expect from Snom at ISE 2024.

In today’s dynamic construction industry, the integration of automation technologies has become a key component of new construction projects.

The drive for energy efficiency and increased focus on making buildings safer, sustainable and more comfortable to live in, are major factors in the greater demand for smart buildings in which different systems communicate with each other and work together seamlessly. According to a study published in January 2024 by Market Research Future, the European building automation systems (BAS) market alone will grow by over USD five billion by 2032.

Against this backdrop, Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) is taking place in Barcelona from 30 January to 2 February 2024, positioning itself as the world’s most important trade fair for the entire BAS industry on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. Snom Technology will be exhibiting at the event again this year, showcasing its latest developments in Hall 2, Booth 2W200.

Snom’s solutions for building automation

Snom’s focus is on using the KNX standard for professional building automation, which was established 30+ years ago, as well as other building management systems such as Modbus or Bacnet and standards such as Matter. However, it is also exploring how it can integrate home automation solutions, such as Phillips HUE or Shelly, voice controls, e-mobility and other lifestyle applications such as Spotify.

Together with Symcon and Becker-Antriebe, Snom will present building management solutions that combine IP telephony (VoIP) and building automation in a simple way. Linking these technologies creates an improved user experience through the convenient operation and visualisation of all building elements at the touch of a button or through the LEDs present in the phone and via the corresponding menu in the Snom device, as well as via a web browser – either on PC or mobile.

Automated actions without human interaction will also be demonstrated by Snom at ISE. For example, a blind based on DECT-ULE, is operated by a KNX motion detector and a wireless DECT ULE window contact regulates a KNX heating actuator. KNX-based LED panels also act as a visual alarm component for the theft of items, and are controlled by Snom’s M9B beacon gateway and M9T tag, connected to a Snom M900 DECT base.

Visitors to Snom’s booth will also see functionalities that are attracting interest in the hospitality industry, such as activating and controlling night and ambient lighting via a telephone.

Fabio Albanini, Head of International Sales at Snom, has emphasised that “ISE is one of the leading events in the field of integration and building automation. On this occasion, Snom is proud to make a significant contribution to the current developments in the integration industry. With our smart and easy-to-implement solutions, we are very pleased to be able to show that communication and automation can go hand in hand and thus help shape modern building concepts.”

Further trade fair highlights

Another Snom highlight to look out for at ISE will be its new series of devices for the hospitality industry, which offer all the features that are essential in this sector. Together with its DECT-based, wireless IP terminals for conference rooms, the German manufacturers’ solutions cover all the needs of a hotel.

Last but not least, Snom will be presenting the brand-new D895 IP phone to a professional audience for the first time. In addition to Snom’s customary versatility and high standards, Snom’s new flagship IP phone features a stylish design and large, high-resolution 8″ display. The new high-end device is expected to be available on the market no later than Q2 2024. The manufacturer is also working on another solution with a wireless DECT handset, which will be an ideal combination for maximum clarity, e.g. in the area of building automation and freedom of movement.

Snom is looking forward to interesting discussions at the fair.
