Hello [NAME]

YasminHashmiAfter what turned out to be a great summer here in the UK, autumn has arrived, and no doubt many KNX-based comfort control systems will have switched the heating on for the first time in months, and will be raising lighting levels earlier each day!

If you are not already aware, the KNX Awards are going to take place at Light+Building in Frankfurt next year, and applications are now being accepted. So if you haven’t done so already, get your entry in, as this is a great event, and an award is a prestigious thing to have on your own or your company's CV!

Another event to look out for, which is just around the corner, is the Smart Building Conference, which makes its debut in London on October 15th. Run by Integrated Systems Europe, this will have a local focus and will provide AV professionals with a forum to discuss topics such as building automation, energy management, security and access control, IT facilities integration, HVAC, and lighting control, and more.

Our articles this month include a case study on a barn conversion in the UK by Simon Allen of Bespoke Automation; a country profile by Geny Caloisi on KNX Greece; and an interview with Henk Hazeleger of systems integrator Leertouwer of the Netherlands. Our resident 'Mr Fix It', Dr KNX, looks at ETS apps, while Jevgeni Maiorov of Smart Electrix reviews KNX push-button controllers from seven different manufacturers. Piero Russo & Oleksiy Danilin of BSRIA continue their European Smart Home Market Study research series with an overview of the UK, and finally, we would like to welcome our new regular contributor, Simon Buddle of integrator SMC, whose Best Practice column kicks off with a look at project organisation.

I'd like to welcome Somfy as a new sponsor. We are only able to provide free access to all of the KNXtoday resources thanks to the support of our sponsors and advertisers - so please take a look at what they have to offer.

And finally, don’t forget to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our 'Where is KNX' gallery. And if this newsletter doesn't greet you by name, please complete our registration form to ensure that you continue to receive a free subscription every month. 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!
