The IFA 2022 in Berlin is an event we have all been waiting for! Our CEO, Christian Kiefel, will be attending the event running from the 2/9 – 6/9. Find him in hall 20/303 at the e-house from ZVEH (Zentralverband der Deutschen Elektro- und Informationstechnischen Handwerke) where you can try out a KNX installation in ‘real-life’. What can you experience at the e-house? Find out below!
What can you experience at the e-house?
The e-house has been optimized with KNX products and smart devices that are interoperable with the KNX protocol. These devices are centrally controlled by ProKNX voice-activated smart speakers. The devices work together to form a comprehensive intelligent home system that regulates energy use, multimedia, and monitors the health of residents.
Intelligent lighting, shading and air-conditioning technology can be seen first-hand. Multimedia is controlled with the integration of systems from a host of companies who are leaders in their fields, such as Basalte, Sonos and Panasonic.
Particular emphasis has been placed on the increasingly important area of energy management. A large proportion of the technology showcased at the e-house is based on Eisbaer bms.
The technological part of the e-house that we at ProKNX are especially excited about is the features that future-proof the house and allow for prolonged independent living in a familiar environment.
- The touch-sensitive floor from FutureShape immediately detects the incidence of a fall.
- Sensors around health technology detect problems via an individual’s respiration, and also via the health watch – where pulse, breathing rate or lack of oxygen in the blood are shown
- Help is automatically available through the Skyresponse alert platform service.
- A wheelchair controlled via glasses by Munevo can also be tested at the e-house. The glasses facilitate the actions of a physically disabled person by allowing them to control the chair and its building functions by simple head movements.
- Our offline voice assistant, Aragon, is used as a gateway to coalesce these functions into a complete system.
There really is a lot to see! Come by and have a chat. Christian is at the stand up to and including Saturday.
