"Due to the spread of the Internet of Things, the networking of private and commercial buildings, and thus the demand for intelligent smart home and building solutions, has accelerated significantly. During the past few years, we have successfully managed to put KNX at the forefront of this development. I am pleased to be able to build together with all KNX Executive Board members upon this top market position and have the honour of continuing to shape the further development of KNX during this exciting time of digital transformation in the building sector" says KNX president Franz Kammerl on his re-election. He was elected in the office of KNX president for the third time in a row.
"Our current KNX IoT program is bringing KNX to the next level: increased networking capabilities, simplification of KNX Connectivity and IP migration, stronger support to sustainable energy management solutions, strengthened security in installations and data privacy. KNX addresses the most strategic priorities to deliver best-in-class solutions for smart homes and smart buildings. The next priority will be to accelerate simplicity in ETS to our partners, offering off-the-shelf solutions for the different target segments" says newly elected vice president Jean-Christophe Krieger, who also views KNX as remaining the first choice in the smart home & building segment in the coming years.
