YasminHashmiHappy new year to you and all of our readers! I hope you enjoyed the break and are ready for 2014.

Our first major event of the year is Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) in Amsterdam which opens in just two weeks.

We will also be producing a spotlight on Light+Building so if you are exhibiting at either event, send us your show news as soon as possible.

YasminHashmiWe start 2014 with a great line-up of articles for all KNXers.

First is an article by Mike Blackman of ISE, who explains how the show has improved for visitors, what there is to see and do and how KNX is of growing importance to the show. Next, Tony Cha of KNX China gives a fascinating overview of how KNX is developing in his country. KNX China is full of energy and intends to make 'KNX' as popular an expression as 'iPhone'! This is followed by our ever-helpful Best Practice column by Simon Buddle of SMC, in which he discusses the need for remote access, how to do it, and what type of control to offer.

Next, we welcome Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg and his new Solutions column. In this issue, Mark explains why we should use IP for KNX, and gives a great technical overview with helpful tips. Our new Going Green column is headed by Jesús Arias García of KNXin, who provides some thought-provoking ideas on designing energy-efficient installations, and this is followed by our resident 'Mr Fix It', Dr KNX, who explains the benefits of ETS4 being 'open'.

Don’t forget that you can comment on any of these articles directly, at the end of the article, and don’t forget too, to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our Where is KNX? gallery.

Making ISE Even Better for You (20/01/2014) - By Mike Blackman, ISE. ISE has been now been running since 2004, and is the world's fastest-growing and best-attended show in the professional AV and electronic systems space. Last year, we hoped to grow in terms of both exhibit space and attendance, but our actual growth, in both areas, was slightly higher than expected.
