Add Devices

 

After you have designed the Building structure for your KNX project, you can start adding individual devices to each room, area or space. Drag & drop devices to the drawing board.

Pick your device/s from the Online Catalog (similar to the Online Catalog in ETS) to design and customize KNX systems based on customer requirements and preferences.

Fill in additional information like Device Selling Price, Net Price, Programming Time, etc. to accurately keep track of all parts and components ordered for each KNX project.

Start adding devices by clicking Add Devices from the Drawing board or go to the menu System>KNX Devices.

Select your Devices from the Online Catalog (similar to ETS).

Fill in additional information like f.ex. Comments, Programming Time and Selling Price for the device.

Comments= this comment is a personal aid and can only be viewed by you. The comment will not be printed out on any report.
Programming Time = the approximate time it takes for YOU to program the function (this gives you a guideline of how big the project is and how long it will take).

If you can't find the device you are looking for, you can add your own devices by filling in the fields OR contact our support so we can add it immediately.

Menu = the category under which you can filter functions when working on the drawing board ex. security, lightning
Display Name = the short name you see on the “box” on the drawing board when selecting a device or function.
Item description=  is the longer name that will be written on top of each device in the reports.

Click Save to go back to the Device View OR click Save and Continue to keep adding devices.

[NOTE: You must click Save or Save and Continue to finalize adding each device to your list]

Move devices from the Device Menu to the rooms on the Drawing board via Drag & Drop.

Configure the devices by right-clicking on the device then filling in the Physical Address and device specific information — click Save when you are finished.

[NOTE: You can also configure each device by clicking on the 6th icon in the right side panel and then selecting the device.]

Click the green save icon above the Drawing board to Save the project.
