YasminHashmiOur articles this month start with an interview of Mike Blackman of ISE, who gives us some compelling reasons why KNX professionals should attend the show. This is followed by a case study of a fire station in Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands, by Remco Hoveling of BAM Techniek in which he describes how KNX can be used to provide energy-efficiencies during normal operation, and save precious seconds during an emergency call-out.

Next, Simon Buddle of Future Ready Homes offers some excellent advice on educating M&E consultants about the benefits of using KNX, along with some practical examples. Sophie Thomas of Ivory Egg then discusses the pros and cons of wired versus wireless KNX installations given the rise of DIY wireless systems in the wider home control market.

The rising popularity of control products designed for the consumer market also interests KNXin's Jesús Arias García, who puts the crossover of these technologies into the professional world into perspective. Our How to Solve It column this month is provided by Miguel José Gamboa Soares of Eurodomótica, who explains how to manually add group addresses to the filter table in ETS. And finally, we end with an exciting introduction to the new KNX USA group by David Thurow of Siemens.

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!
