Control4 has intoduced a new Control4 KNX solution, to better integhrate KNX lighting and HVAC control within the Control4 ecosystem. In addition, the new Control4 KNX Network driver, supported in the latest Control4 OS release, natively connects to existing KNX devices within the home without requiring third-party integration.

This enables interoperability with the entire Control4 ecosystem, including support for Amazon Alexa voice control, where available, and over 12,000 other connected products, says the brand.

For homeowners, the new Control4 KNX solution provides the full Control4 experience, including "intuitive ways to control and interact with a home through a mobile app, touch screens, handheld remote, and voice control." Additionally, homeowners now have the ability to directly fine-tune their smart home automation using When >> Then, not available in most KNX systems.

"By offering and deeply integrating KNX products with Control4, we are introducing many more customers to the power of Control4 audio/video entertainment, smart lighting, comfort and peace of mind, along with flexible personalization via When>>Then,” says Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In Control4 KNX Solutions markets such as Germany and China, we also expect our combined solution of Control4 and KNX will attract traditional KNX dealers who wish to expand their offerings with Control4 smart home solutions, such as one-room family entertainment, multi-room audio and video, smart lighting, climate control and peace of mind experiences.”

For dealers, the new Control4 KNX line promises to be easy to install and program using existing ETS tools, and also includes an automatic import into a Control4 project. This integration makes it simple to tie programming, such as streaming audio, to a KNX keypad button-press or add Amazon Alexa voice control to lighting scenes where available.
