KNX DESIGN AND PLANNING TOOL

Removes the pain with project documentation and automates for quicker
and easier programming – get happier customers and save time.

Documentation may not be the fun part of running a business - but try succeeding without it.

You started your business for a reason, and that reason probably has nothing to do with complicated reports and spreadsheets.

Still, proper documentation helps you communicate better with customers. Without it customers can’t know what to expect and misunderstandings are inevitable, and those cost you money.

Project documentation helps you to grow by giving a structure to your business and it helps you to keep track of your design thinking and all project details during the long time a project usually takes.

As KNX system integrators ourselves, we realised that poor documentation was hurting our business, so we decided to fix the problem.

The KNX Tool replaces Word and Excel for your project documentation. Plan your projects in the tool with a more intuitive drag & drop system and print documentation that will help you plan better, be more structured, and experience less bugs. And whether you need purchase reports or user manuals, we’ve got you covered.

KNX function group addresses

Ever thought Group Addresses should be easier?

We all develop our own techniques for handling group addresses, some use indexing, others use spreadsheets. Yet, in the end – it’s a process that takes a lot of time.

A common solution is to copy old structures between projects, but not only does that copy unused addresses and errors from your previous projects, it often results in new errors and inconsistent group address names making debugging a nightmare.

ETS has many great features like the new IoT functions – but they all require manual data entering which requires a lot of extra time and effort.

 

Forget spreadsheets and manually assigned index numbers. KNX Tool can automatically generate the Group Address Structure according to your own style. It will also group them into IoT functions in ETS which gives you a better overview of your project and speeds up programming.

Save time and money with every
KNX installation

A unique one-of-a-kind tool specifically designed for KNX installers and integrators to help save time

Visualise Planning

Planning KNX projects is more visual and intuitive with the KNX Tool’s drag & drop interface.

Map the building structure and drag & drop devices and functions where you want them. 

Assign button functionality and channel information in an intuitive way.

Sell functions not devices

Customers don’t care what relays or bus system their home will have, they care about what functionalities they get.

Show your customer what makes your project unique with functions.

Functions describe functionalities and events that you can programme with KNX e.g. turning on a scene or locking the doors.

Create your own functions or start off quick by downloading some from our online catalogue.

Automate and save time

The KNX Tool was designed with the principle of reusing components and templates to save time. The tool offers a variety of ways to automate your planning and refine your functions over time.

Save up to 65% of planning time by not having to manually copy and paste data, creating group address structures or print labels.

The automatically generated IoT functions sets you up for faster programming and it also allows other manufacturers like XXTER to automatically generate the visualisation in a fraction of time.

Programming & Commissioning

With our ETS APP you can import your KNX Tool project into ETS with the complete group address structure, topology, IoT functions and pre-configured devices – saving you a lot of time.

Take advantage of the new IoT functions in ETS and start to link channel to channel instead of object to object. The IoT functions will visually group the group addresses under functions you have in a room, this gives you a much more clear overview of your project so programming gets easier and faster.

If you want to grow your KNX business you need to structure the projects and create documentation. if you only have a 1-2 projects a year you can manage with word and Excel but once you start to grow you will hit a wall where you can’t add functionality to your projects without documentation and you can’t grow without offering more functionality. Competitors who structure their projects are also able to sell their projects much cheaper.
