YasminHashmiWe start this issue with a case study by Rachel Wilkinson of My KNX Store of an installation in an impressive rural residential property in Northumberland UK.

Next, KNXin's Jesús Arias García gives some compelling reasons why a KNX Partner certification maintenance programme would benefit the industry. If you have any thoughts on this, you are welcome, as with all of our articles, to comment directly, at the end of the article. Simon Buddle then suggests that KNX Partners should look at integrating security into KNX systems, and offers some useful advice on how to do so.

Having attended the International ETS5 Premiere Conference for Training Centres that was held recently in Portugal, Rafal Borek of Home of Technologies treats us to his take on the new programming tool, and outlines why he thinks ETS5 is going to make a major impact on the industry. Sophie Thomas of Ivory Egg then explains why indoor air quality has become such a hot topic, how mechanical ventilation and heat recovery works and why it makes sense to integrate it within a KNX system. This is followed by our resident 'Mr Fix It', Dr KNX, who deals with the issue of not being able to use a KNX USB interface after an upgrade to Windows 8.1.

Finally, our country profile this month is of KNX New Zealand, which incidentally, has also recently announced a joint initiative with the Electrical Contractors Association of New Zealand to promote the move towards compatible platforms across the electrical industry. Well done them!

Don’t forget that you can comment at the end of these articles, and do remember to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our 'Where is KNX?' gallery. Enjoy!
