Gira HomeServer

The on-board computer for intelligent buildings

The Gira HomeServer is the on-board computer for intelligent buildings. It connects the KNX system's electrical installation to the computer network and the internet, thereby allowing intelligent building technology to be controlled centrally via a large number of control devices, regardless of the user's location. What's more, numerous other technologies can be seamlessly integrated in the building control in this way – for example: door intercoms, cameras, and audio systems, as well as systems from other manufacturers for the bathroom or kitchen or for home entertainment.

Expanding the KNX system with the Gira HomeServer offers numerous advantages: Occupants don't just enjoy the advantages of mobile technology control, but rather the full Gira experience with maximum convenience, security and energy efficiency. The award-winning Gira Interface makes controlling intelligent technology enjoyable by enabling complex scenarios to be controlled easily – with just one finger.

  • Simple operation with the Gira Interface
  • More security in everyday life and dangerous situations
  • High system flexibility through the client-server model
  • More convenience thanks to intelligent networking
  • Improved energy efficiency

Simple operation with the Gira Interface

With the Gira Interface, the user interface of the Gira HomeServer, controlling innovative building technology is child's play. The Gira Interface has already won several awards for its exceptional user friendliness. The menu navigation is clearly designed and works intuitively: Any function can be reached within only two levels. Additional information or operating elements are displayed directly in a pop-up window. This allows very convenient operation via touch screen – with just one finger.

In addition, all the devices that can be used to control the building via the Gira HomeServer/FacilityServer feature a uniformly structured interface design. As a result, users don't need to constantly adapt to new menu navigation – regardless of whether they're using a Gira Control Client, PC, tablet or smartphone. The user interface has been adapted to the particular screen sizes of the individual end devices for optimum usability. This allows complex scenarios to be controlled easily – anytime and anywhere.

More convenience thanks to intelligent networking

Intelligent building technology from Gira makes living more convenient and comfortable – with functional details that are precisely adapted to the individual wishes and needs of occupants. The central control of lighting, blinds, and heating, design of room scenes, requirements-based single-room ventilation and heating control, fully automatic garden sprinklers, multimedia entertainment in all rooms, and much more.

With the help of the Gira HomeServer, a wide variety of functions can be seamlessly integrated into the background atmosphere and provide a sense of wellbeing throughout the entire home.

More security in everyday life and dangerous situations

The diverse security functions that can be implemented by being connected to the Gira HomeServer ensure a sense of security around the clock. Whether the risk is of burglary, fire, or storms – the Gira KNX system offers special solutions for a wide variety of dangers.

Special applications such as panic switches, video monitoring and occupancy simulations guarantee optimum protection for the home and its occupants.

Improved energy efficiency through intelligent consumption control

With modern energy management, intelligent building technology from Gira not only helps to save power; it protects the environment too. The perfect interaction of the functions means energy consumption is reduced to a minimum and coordinated exactly to a household’s individual requirements.

The energy module clearly displays all the consumption values at any time, meaning that occupants always have an eye on their energy costs and can permanently lower them – without cutting back on convenience.

High system flexibility through the client-server model

The application concept of the Gira HomeServer is based on a genuine client-server model. Because of this, the Gira HomeServer offers a particularly high degree of access flexibility with a wide variety of control devices. Additional technologies can be easily integrated into the building control via the open IP interface.
