The smart features of the home work almost invisibly in the background: A KNX system connects the individual components of the building technology, with a Gira HomeServer acting as the central controller.
The system boasts various practical automatic functions and comprehensive scenes that can be actuated at the touch of a button; energy consumption is managed with maximum efficiency. Users can override the technology at any time and manage the home centrally – including via a smartphone or tablet if they aren't at home. A smart home makes everyday life easier, delivering comfort, convenience and security to leave you with more time for the really important things in life. The "go" function, for example, saves time every single day: With a single press of the Gira pushbutton sensor, all lights, pre-defined sockets used for standby devices and music from the Gira flush-mounted radio can be switched off before leaving the house. The status light on the button also shows if any windows or doors have been left open. If so, the owners can take a quick look at the Gira G1 touch panel to see which window is open so that it can be closed. The windows and doors are connected to the KNX system via special contacts. "If everything is closed, the "central off" function acknowledges this via an LED status display – all with just a single press of a button".
The Gira G1 is a brand-new, compact operating device for KNX systems. Designed to be placed on a central wall in the living area, the 6'' (15.25 cm) multi-touch display allows the user to call up all functions at the touch of a finger: from lighting and blinds control to room temperature setting, programming of timers, calling up scenes up to door communication. You can even check the weather forecast. Placing a hand on the display allows a predefined direct function – such as the activation of ceiling lighting – to be called up directly.
