Detailed Description

Energy Efficiency

The usage of automated functions already save energy in every installation. Especially the usage of KNX has a lot of potential for further energy savings, which can contribute to a better environmental footprint. Be extending KNX to more functions and applications, energy savings of up to 60% can be realised. Thanks to the flexibility of KNX, these functions can easily be implemented in this installation.


Smart homes and buildings are always an upgrade in comparison to a conventional installation. Not only automated functions and a higher level of comfort contribute to a higher living standard, but also the possibility to be ready for coming innovations. Thanks to the usage of KNX, the door has been opened to integrate new innovative solutions, using the worldwide STANDARD for home and building control.

Ease of Use

By integrating KNX, we automatically experience a higher energy efficiency and comfort. Furthermore, by the possibility to use further devices, in order to make the usage of the project easier, we can look at further opportunity to even make the whole installation easier in usage.

Customer's description

The Clayton Hotel Convention Centre in Silversprings is Cork’s largest conference venue, accommodating up to 1,500 delegates. There are 10 dedicated state of the art meeting rooms and 3 conference spaces. The project includes lighting scenes with several DMX colour changing lighting areas, dimming controls and DALI emergency lighting testing. The extremely tight timeframe for the project and the fact that areas needed to be open during restoration made this a particularly challenging project which KNX was ideally suite for. KNX ensured a simpler wiring infrastructure and helped reduce commissioning time and complexity but still managed to increase the functionality for the client. One of the additional functions achieved with KNX allowed the client to partition off the main conference area into 2 rooms and by simply closing the partition it automatically changed the lighting controlled by switches on either side of the partition.
