Hello [NAME]

YasminHashmiSeason's greetings! As the days grow shorter and colder in the Northern Hemisphere, the focus is on lighting and heating, so we start this month with a case study by Christoph Börsch of B.E.G that explains how the company's presence detectors control internal and external lighting in an office building in Germany.

For those interested in HVAC, Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg takes us through the various types of heat source for residential buildings, with some useful examples of KNX hardware to control them. His focus is on using intelligent control to save energy, and his concern is that this control be considered at the same time as the HVAC system is specified, not much later as is often the case.

Still traumatised by the noisy air-conditioning sometimes found in hotel rooms in the US, Simon Buddle of Future Ready Homes provides an overview of integrated HVAC for the home, also with some useful examples of KNX hardware and design considerations.

And finally, Mahir Mensuri Karataş and Ahmet Okan Şeker of Turkish Petroleum provide a helpful tutorial on how to manage lighting and heating automation programs from different control protocols, such as KNX, BACnet, ModBus and LonWorks, using the Tridium Niagara AX Framework. This integrates various systems and devices, regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol, into a combined platform that can be easily operated over the Internet using a standard web browser.

Don't forget to check out our resources section which is packed full of useful information, and 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. Happy holidays!
