KNX control integration
With the new KNX Gateway, the powerful Voxnet multi-user system from Revox becomes part of the primary building automation system. Revox has been focussing on networking for many years and offers future-proofed solutions for the integration of building technologies and entertainment electronics into one holistic system. The Revox Multiuser System can be controlled from the KNX world, and Revox can also send commands to the KNX world so that- both worlds work hand in hand to bring maximum benefits to the user.
The Voxnet KNX gateway
The KNX gateway for the Revox Multiuser System is designed to meet the requirements of installers and electricians for the perfect implementation. The KNX gateway which comes in a series mounting case with an installation width of 2 HP is the interface between Voxnet and the KNX world. In addition to the certified KNX input, the KNX gateway offers a LAN network connection for communication with the Voxnet Multiuser System. The power supply can be provided by the Ethernet interface via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or externally. Revox offers a comprehensive database for the ETS software to configure the KNX system, containing all communication objects for the Voxnet system.
Each Voxnet KNX gateway supports up to 10 rooms of the Revox Multiuser System. A Voxnet Server can integrate two KNX gateways, thus up to 20 rooms can be integrated into the Voxnet system for pure KNX control.
For each room, the Voxnet KNX gateway currently offers 50 communication objects allowing comprehensive control of Voxnet. For many communication objects, feedback can be provided by the gateway, thus the current status of a room can be seen at the KNX push-button. The control elements in the KNX world can select users and sources of the Voxnet system. Besides volume control and mute, the most important control commands of the classic consumer electronics like "Pause", "Next" or "Previous" are integrated. There are four individual timers for each room of a Voxnet system which can be configured to personal needs such as wake-up time, week days, source and initial volume. While it's not possible to change these timers over KNX, a keystroke allows the morning alarm clock to be activated or deactivated. An LED on the KNX push-button shows the corresponding status.
For each room four individual user actions can be stored in the Voxnet configurator. These actions can be selected by one single keystroke from the KNX world. Individual scenes can be stored, for example, setting the alarm so that you are woken up by increasing the volume step by step or integrating TV devices that do not have their own KNX interface. For the integration of external products, they must be able to be integrated into the Voxnet system by means of a driver, which is possible for many consumer electronic products.
Experience the diversity by the single push of a button
Scenes can be stored in the KNX world to reproduce recurring sequences with the single push of a button. Just imagine: You return home after a long and exhausting work day and with only one keystroke your house welcomes you with the appropriate lighting and relaxing music in several rooms. Or when leaving the house you want to make sure that all electrical products are switched off. A single keystroke at the front door or in the garage is enough to perform these actions.
The KNX gateway for the Multiuser System from Revox allows the integration of such scenes into Voxnet.
Revox controls KNX
It is also possible to control functions in the KNX world from the Revox world. Depending on certain conditions in the Voxnet System, commands can automatically be sent to the KNX system. Select a movie in your home cinema with a Revox remote control. Voxnet arranges the rest. The required amplifiers and sources are switched-on accordingly and both the screen and projector receive the command from Voxnet via KNX to descend from the ceiling smoothly. The light conditions are adapted to the individual needs and the blinds are closed automatically.
