We had a ball at Futurebuild!!

After months of preparation, Futurebuild finally came to fruition last week and KNX UK was delighted to be flanked by three Manufacturer Members and assisted on the stand by so many members.

There was a great deal of interest in the KNX Open Protocol and we found ourselves having some really interesting conversations with academics, students, specifiers and end-users. The support of members on the stand meant we were able to put our message across from many different perspectives : design, practicalities of installation, training, careers, sustainability issues. But above all the opportunity to explain to so many professionals what KNX is – or more the point, what it isn’t!

KNX isn’t a manufacturer or a system – although it is used by over 500 manufacturers worldwide to link a diverse range of devices and functionalities into one cohesive platform, creating opportunities for truly bespoke and adaptable BMS in large and small applications.

KNX isn’t a company it is an association of manufacturers, developers and installers who provide the freedom and flexibility of a backward compatible and thereby future-proof solution to building controls. It is a collaboration of technology designed to improve the daily lives of users in a much more sustainable way. Once a BMS is built on a KNX core system, individual components can be added removed or updated without the need (ever) to replace the core system. Being present in person in a way that hasn’t been possible for us for some years, enabled us to get this message across and we would like to thank everyone for their assistance in making this possible.
