Hello [NAME]

YasminHashmiSummer is officially here in the northern hemisphere, which should mean that more people are outdoors enjoying the weather, or perhaps indoors enjoying a KNX-controlled shading system, so if you have any stories about how you are dealing with the environment using KNX, do get in touch. If we continue to get such wet weather here in London however, I expect to see fewer cooling systems and more automated awnings, roof coverings and heating!
For those of you interested in skilling up, we've also added more training events to our news section, so take a look, and let us know if you are running any KNX events or courses.
Every month we bring you a fresh offering of articles. This month we have a case study by mySmartCTI's Alistair Grice, who tells us about the Civic Building in Australia’s Surf Coast Shire, which is the only civic building in the Victoria area that has achieved a five-star green-star rating. We also have a case study by Ricardo Pinto of a contemporary residential development in Oporto Portugal, that features comprehensive home control including security and AV.
Paul Russell of Schneider Electric explains why architects and builders should plan for KNX home control to help with energy-efficiency, while Piero Russo & Oleksiy Danilin of BSRIA give an overview of the market for KNX in Denmark as part of their European Smart Home Market Study research series. Our regular contributor Geny Caloisi enlightens us about KNX in Brazil, where prestigious projects, such as the Maracaña Stadium which will be used for the 2016 Olympics, employ KNX. We have an interview with Edwin Hanninck of Theben, who gives us his perspective on the KNX market, and last but not least, our resident problem solver, Dr KNX, gives a lot of good reasons why you should update your ETS software.
We've also add some more pictures to our 'Where is KNX' gallery, and look forward to receiving a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile.

If this newsetter doesn't greet you by name, please complete our registration form to ensure that you continue to receive a free subscription every month, and if you think it would be useful to a colleague, then please forward it. For regular updates on news and events, you can also follow us on our social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest) or RSS feed. Enjoy!
-Yasmin Hashmi, Managing Editor
