One of the main tasks of the KNX system is the lighting control, sheding and the room temperature control.But not only. The challenge for today’s investors is to integrate as many different technologies into one system as possible. One of these requirements is the connection to the security system.
The most common information to get of the security system and convert it into a KNX system are states of the magnetic contacts (for example, blocking the air conditioners when window is open or switching the lights ON when the door is open). It is also a state of the security system, especially armed/disarmed (for example changing the heating mode or switching the lights OFF when leaving) and the alarm status finally.
For small applications where too many inputs are not needed, we can get these states using the KNX binary inputs on the one hand and the free programmable outputs on the other hand.
However, if it is a large object, it is necessary to consider in advance what kind of security board is used and how to integrate its information into the KNX bus system.
One of the solutions is the GALAXY control panel.
