Core components of a Smart Home

What a Gira Smart Home can do.

Smart Homes connect lighting, blinds, heating, and even household appliances so you can control everything with one device. This allows for a high degree of flexibility: monitor your home either via smart switches, voice command, or Gira apps. You will know exactly what is going on in your house at all times– whether you’re lying on the couch or running errands.

This allows for a high degree of flexibility: monitor your home either via smart switches, voice command, or Gira apps. You will know exactly what is going on in your house at all times– whether you’re lying on the couch or running errands. 

Smart technologies also take on tedious chores, leaving you with more free time on your hands. How about a morning routine like this, for example:

  • Your blinds open automatically so that you are woken up gently by the sunlight.

  • Simultaneously, the radio starts playing and the coffee machine starts brewing your coffee.

You won’t need to worry about anything, except maybe what you’d like to have for breakfast. Smart features like these also reduce your energy consumption. Your house can switch off your lighting, heating, and other appliances automatically once you left for work (or in case you forgot to switch them off yourself). Special sensors monitor their environment and react immediately to changes in brightness, temperature, humidity, etc. A Smart Home thereby prevents any unnecessary use of energy – without you having to even lift a finger.

  • Gira System 3000 covers the essential functions of lighting, blind, and heating control. Its installation requires nothing more than the right switch inserts. You can operate all devices either manually via switch or via Bluetooth app on your smartphone.

  • The wireless Gira eNet SMART HOME offers a larger range of convenient features, including the option to integrate different household appliances.

  • The Gira KNX system is the right solution if you want to explore the full potential of smart living. It consists of a wired network that connects all kinds of devices in your Smart Home. For retrofittings in older buildings or rental flats, there’s also a wireless alternative: the Gira KNX RF system.

Staying in charge – via switch, app, and voice command.

Monitor your entire house with just one fingertip: intuitively via switch or the Gira G1. Of course, you can use an app or voice assistant as well. Our Smart Home product range includes several control options for any system. Many of the operating elements are compatible with the frame variants of Gira System 55: design to match your personal style. 

Smart Home lighting: on, off, and a whole world in between.

Apart from switching lights “on” or “off”, you can also dim the brightness to set the right mood. With the Gira Smart Home app and the Gira G1, your lighting is literally at your fingertips. 

You’d like to use manual switches as well? Smart pushbutton sensors make for a stylish highlight on the wall – and have a lot more to offer than regular light switches.

Smart heating control: more comfort, less effort.

Neither too hot, nor too cold: with smart heating, you can enjoy perfect temperatures whenever you’re home. Automated time schedules ensure that your house will only be warmed up when necessary. Thanks to switches with integrated sensors, your Smart Home always knows when to turn on the heating – and when to stop. You can thus keep your energy expenditure (and monthly costs) as low as possible.

How to retrofit a Smart Home.

You don’t need to build a new house to enjoy the benefits of smart technology. If you live in an older building or rental flat, you can opt for a wireless network such as:

All these systems work via radio transmission and can therefore be retrofitted without extensive renovations. While the Gira System 3000 connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, the Gira eNet SMART HOME is compatible with your Wifi network. The Gira KNX RF system in turn relies on RF (radio frequency) technology. This allows you to add more devices or functions to your Smart Home any time – step by step, room by room.

Smart Home security: feeling safe around the clock.

Even though we don’t like to think about worst-case scenarios, we need to be prepared if anything should happen. Smart technology protects you and your home against various dangers – from outbreaks of fire to unwanted intruders.

With the remote access module Gira S1, you can safely control a KNX Smart Home from anywhere. It encrypts all lines of communication that involve sensitive data.

At home, a smart door intercom will keep unwanted visitors away. The Gira System 106 has an integrated camera module that shows you who’s ringing the bell – before you open the door. Indoors, you can rely on smart smoke alarm devices to prevent outbreaks of fire: their sensors detect even the smallest smoke particles along with changes of the room temperature in due time.
