YasminHashmiOur articles this month start with the second instalment of the three-part series by Ben Lewis of KNX Consultants on the practicalities of refurbishing his office with KNX. In part 2, Ben deals with the heating installation. This is followed by our new 'How to Solve it' column. This month, Héctor Colado of Amaisys Training, gives step-by-step advice on how to correctly program ETS so that the status-LED of a light switch displays correctly even if two light switches are used to control the same light.

KNXin's Jesús Arias García treats us to his vision of the smart city powered by renewable energy, how KNX can play an important role in creating energy-efficient buildings, and how legislation can help. Sophie Thomas of Ivory Egg then makes the case for shade control in the smart home, and how this often-overlooked aspect of building control can add value to a project. Simon Buddle of Future Ready Homes gives some excellent advice on what type of user interface to specify, followed by an interview with Tim Robbins of My KNX Store on the advantages of becoming a KNX-certified installer. And finally, in his last contribution before taking a sabbatical, Dr KNX looks at how ETS5 will make an impact on the programming process.

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!
