KNX CONTROL is…

…your interface to a variety of functions, which will simplify your life at home and make you experience a new level of building automation. Enjoy the numerous functionalities offered by the world-wide standard KNX and exploit all their advantages in combination with the OPTIMA interface:

Illumination

Every single light point of your building can be controlled in a fast and easy way through DIVUS OPTIMA: thanks to different graphical templates not only ON/OFF actions can are possible, but also more sophisticated controls like dimming or RGB color selection can be realized.

And if you’re out of house, don’t worry: your KNX CONTROL device will do the work for you. The flexible calendar scheduling permits to execute commands at certain times, if needed also over a longer time like months or weeks.

Naturally you can also combine single light points and control them with one click; thanks to the customizable scenarios of the OPTIMA interface you can select different actions and connect them to one graphical element in the visualisation. Scenarios can be connected to all kind of objects of the visualisation and do not require any changes on the KNX system itself.

Intercom

The possibility to integrate intercom functionalities into the OPTIMA interface has become a reliable and very popular feature of the KNX CONTROL products. Due to the usage of VoIP technology the OPTIMA interface assumes the functionality of a small phone central and permits to integrate external units, IP phones, PCs & MACs, mobile devices and – if necessary – also gateways to external phone lines. It is only required that the devices using the VoIP functions are compatible with the SIP standard.

Incoming calls from the door station are shown on the integrated client devices of DIVUS OPTIMA and can be handled through a pop-up window. If the door station offers also a video signal, it can be displayed together with the incoming call. The graphical interface lets you accepts or decline the call, switch between different camera signals and also execute additional functions, like the door opener or other actions in the KNX system.

An additional advantage of the INTERCOM module is the possibility to connect KNX actions and VoIP calls: so it is for example possible to start calls automatically, depending on certain events within the KNX system. Furthermore, virtual phone numbers can be created and associated with KNX functions; if the number is called by a device like an IP phone, the associated KNX functions will be automatically executed.

As if this functionality would not be enough, your KNX CONTROL devicecan also be connected to an external phone line (either SIP or analog through a corresponding gateway); in this moment, intercom calls can also be directed to numbers of the conventional phone and mobile network. The following scheme shows a small overview of a system with KNX SERVER and active VoIP functionality:

Energy management

Also in the home automation sector, a flexible and simple energy management solution is becoming really important: whether it is the desire to keep the energy costs as low as possible or the usage of alternative energy source to produce your own energy: the information provided by the energy system should be accessible in a clear and simple way.

Your KNX CONTROL device is able to handle the information from each kind of KNX counter, independent from the provided data (electric values, gas or water consumption, etc.). The received values are registered from your KNX CONTROL device in real time and can be displayed in different graphical formats.

The registered value are not only for information, but can also be used to switch on or off single loads or consumers. This integrated load control feature can be customized and will permit you to keep your energy consumption always within the desired range.

Security

Your KNX CONTROL device is able to communicate with different types of alarm systems, as long as they offer a KNX gateway. The function library of the KNX CONTROL family already contains the most common graphical templates, which permit to get messages or alerts within the OPTIMA interface and to control the available options.

Thanks to the different logic and event functionalities integrated in your KNX CONTROL device, the information from the alarm system can also be used to trigger certain actions within OPTIMA, for example the dispatching of notifications via mail. Furthermore you can arrange page jumps to certain areas of the visualisation: just let the camera surveillance page automatically appear as soon as the presence sensor in the garden reacts.

Scheduling

With DIVUS OPTIMA you can schedule nearly every contained object; whether you want to start a scenario at a certain time or you want to control an irrigation valve directly: just use the simple scheduling options of the OPTIMA interface in order to achieve the desired functionality.

Beneath simple daily time plans you can also use long-range scheduling, for example weekly or monthly plans (if required, even considering holidays or seasonal changes). The scheduling function is accessible directly from within the visualisation and can therefore be easily adapted.

Heating – Cooling

Your KNX CONTROL device can be combined with any kind of KNX temperature sensor or room controller and takes control over of all heating or cooling functions of your home.

In this way, all the parameters necessary to control the room temperature in a correct way (operating modes, setpoints, ventilation speed, etc.), can be shown in a separated pop-up window, which will automatically be reduced to a simple temperature indicator if not in use.

Thanks to the OPTIMA interfaceyou can also schedule the climate functions and therefore adapt the temperatures for different time ranges. Using the different daily, weekly or monthly scheduling, you can be sure that the temperature in your home will always fit your expectations.

Scenarios

DIVUS OPTIMA gives you the possibility to create your own scenarios, which permit to handle different kind of commands in a combined way. Whether it should be a cinema eve, a romantic dinner or the well-known “ALL OFF“ – command: one click of you is enough, for the rest there is your KNX CONTROL device.

The scenarios of DIVUS OPTIMA aren’t restricted to the KNX functions: you could also use the scenario in order to control one of the linked Multiroom or alarm systems, to send out notifications or to launch a VoIP / intercom call. The different actions can furthermore be executed with a temporal delay, which permits to run scenarios also over a longer time period.

The launch of a scenario can be done in multiple ways: either control your scenario manually through the visualisation or let the scenarios be started or stopped automatically by connecting them to a time scheduling or events that happen in the system. It is also possible to refresh the values that are stored within a value: by clicking the re-learn button of the scenario, its target values will be set to the current value of the system; small changes therefore can be made without any effort.

A typical example for a scenario is the control of an irrigation plant: after the start of the scenario the different valves – controlling the water flow in the different areas – will be opened; this happens with a time delay (freely selected, if needed also with holiday or seasonal exceptions) in order to irrigate one area after another. The execution of the scenario can furthermore be bound to a KNX weather station, for example to block the irrigation in case of rainfall.

Door and Window contacts

All kind of motorized doors, windows, shutters, blinds etc. can be controlled in a simple way through your KNX CONTROL device. Different graphical templates permit to distinguish perfectly between the different functions: you can for example control the position of your shutter using a slider, tilt a window with a simple click or you can even use the visualisation as control center in order to see which doors or windows are currently opened.

The single functions can also be connected, forming a complex object, or simply be part of a scenario, in order to keep the visualisation always clean and to raise its usability.

DIVUS SMART-ITs

Thanks to the use of NFC technology (Near Field Communication) the control of smart homes is even easier and more comfortable now. DIVUS SMART-ITs can be stuck anywhere (hidden or visible) in the house. In combination with a smartphone, different home control functions can be activated in a quick and uncomplicated way.

It is very easy to configure the little smart tags, which contain an ultra-thin chip. Various commands can be created and saved in just a few steps.
Before going to sleep, hold the smartphone close (max. 3 cm distance) to the SMART-IT with the programmed function “Good Night” and the alarm system will be activated automatically, the blinds lowered and all the lights switched off in the house except of the the bedside lights.
Or when entering the living room, move the smartphone over the SMART-IT called “Feel good”, immediately your favorite music will be played, the lights dimmed and a comfortable temperature reached.

The system integrator programs the SMART-ITs in the administration menu according to customers’ wishes. The customer needs only to decide where to place the SMART-ITs in the house. With a NFC-enabled smartphone and the app of DIVUS, desired commands can easily be activated. The shortcuts saved on the NFC-chip are sent from the smartphone to the server and executed automatically when activated.
