Paul Foulkes has been an active and enthusiastic KNX UK board member for the past three years, and takes the reins at an exciting time. KNX is celebrating its 30th birthday this year and is introducing new software with features that will bring KNX, the only truly open-source technology, to a wider marketplace.
“KNX is the lingua franca of intelligent building control,” said Paul. “We want to ensure that everyone has a chance to speak that language as well as benefiting from the functionality and energy savings that only truly-integrated control across all applications can deliver.”
