ThinKnx Supervision System
ThinKnx is a universal, multi-purpose supervisor for building automation that allows to manage all the functions of the systems integrated into your smart home or building. The different functions of home automation are handled by ThinKnx through a simple, appealing and highly customizable multi-platform interface that allows to intimately and freely interact with the system using your tablet, iPhone, Android or Windows Smartphone.
ThinKnx guarantees flexibility and scalability of the installation so it can be adapted to all the customers' needs. It supports installations on simple plants with integrated standard systems and meets the needs of more complex buildings allowing a huge quantity of systems to communicate to each other. Integration and interoperability are granted by the easiness during the configuration activity.
Both graphics and logics can be decided during the configuration phase through an easy procedure. All the graphics that will appear in the supervision project can be decided by the user. The supervision project can be multi-user in order to give the final user the control of different views and commands of the same plants. Security is also guaranteed thanks to the use of restrictions and PIN codes.
Automated actions give a new value to the building: thermostats, lights and other devices can be programmed to work following the habits of the householder. A powerful logic engine makes all the integrated systems able to communicate to each other and to send feedbacks to the supervision, following the rules defined by the user. Data coming from the plant can also be stored and can help to further increase comfort and efficiency.
Push notifications can be displayed on clients when certain conditions, predefined in the Configurator, occur.
Web interface allows to visualize the graphic interface and to control the plant from a web browser.
The “Switch” object can be used for several control modes: toggle, dimmering, sending of “1” value, sending of “0” value, sending of “1” on pressure and “0” on release, sending of byte value, etc.
Calendar and Clocks
“Switch” objects can be temporized using two different modes: the “Calendar” mode allows to set complex temporizations, while the “Switch Schedule” mode allows to set six weekly temporizations.
RGB lamps can be configured and programmed using the Configurator, specifying the KNX groups of color groups.
The loads control allows to monitor the electric energy consumption. Disarm thresholds and rearm intervals can be set using the Configurator.
Roller and Blinds
“Rollers” and “Blinds” objects contain KNX groups to move, to stop and to obtain a feedback of shades, blinds, etc.
The chronothermostat is used to interact with a KNX thermostat and allows to set weekly timers to control the temperature. The desired temperature can be hourly and daily set.
The “Analogical value” object allows to visualize analogical values (for example meteo data such as wind speed, outdoor temperature, etc.) and to send them to a KNX group (for example to adjust threshold values).
Scene is a sequence of programmed actions such as the switching on of the lights in a room. This list of action can be predetermined by the user through the scene recording function.
The “Report” object allows to monitor one or more KNX groups and to send an e-mail message with a report to a list of receivers. The report can be sent in text or html format.
Weather forecast can be displayed into the client by setting the desired locations in the Configurator.
In order to visualize the images coming from an IP camera on the client, you only have to set the addresses (local and remote), the model and the access credentials in the Configurator.
ThinKnx includes a large-scale integration of anti-theft systems. All the system parameters, partitions and sensors can be adjusted in the Configurator. The user can arm or disarm one or all the partitions, exclude some sensors or visualize the alerted ones.
