New Gira products

Gira consistently extends its product range and is constantly introducing new products for intelligent building technology. A few key products are presented in this overview.

Gira – the company

Gira System 55 – the modular system with more than 300 functions

The Gira System 55 combines a large selection of the functions of modern building technology with a wide range of design variants. The key to it all is a single square measuring 55 x 55 mm. This uniform measurement for function modules and matching frames makes the planning, logistics and installation of switches and other building technology functions easier.

KNX System - Intelligent building technology for greater convenience, security and energy efficiency

The Gira KNX system is an intelligent solution for networking and controlling building technology. Due to the targeted linking of devices and functions in accordance with the KNX standard, both living and working have not only become more convenient and secure, but also more energy-efficient and economical.

Gira has become a new official licenced supplier to "City Electrical Factors". With nearly 400 branches in the UK our partner CEF will have a branch near to you.

Gira door communication - Flexible solutions for indoor and outdoor use

Seeing who is at the door, conducting conversations in optimum voice quality and conveniently opening the door: the Gira door communication system provides solutions for all indoor and outdoor requirements. The range includes door intercoms to match the Gira design lines, video function, keyless access control, flexible operating options by connecting to IP networks, and much more.

Gira for the Home planning tool

Whether it forms part of house building, restoration or renovation – the future electrical installation must be planned at an early stage. You can find out which Gira products are recommended for which application and where they are beneficial in the Gira planning tool.

The Gira eNet wireless system – smart networking and control of building technology

The possibilities offered by the latest technologies can even be easily integrated in older buildings. With Gira eNet, functions such as lighting and blind control can easily be retrofitted and networked with one another – without any need to lay new cables. This is because Gira eNet is 100% wireless. A range of control devices – including hand-held transmitters as well as retrofittable wall transmitters – are available for control purposes. The eNet server allows the system to be controlled using the Gira Control Clients, a computer or a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet, even while on the move.

Experience building technology in person Gira Showrooms

Take a look, touch it, and try it out: That’s the concept behind the Gira showrooms. This is an excellent opportunity to experience the products and possibilities of intelligent building technology, including the full functionality of a KNX system, in person.
