Profitability for your customers

Factors that are decisive for the cost efficiency of a KNX installation include the ongoing operational costs and, in particular, the investment costs, compared to conventional systems. The required range of functions is quite decisive in this case, because KNX will very quickly make itself pay if the functions go beyond those possible from a conventional solution.

When it comes to a comparison between the investment costs of a KNX system and those of a conventional installation, what counts is the required range of functions. Often, even simple scene functions can be implemented more cost-effectively with KNX than on a conventional basis. One aspect to remember with regard to investment costs concerns the lower operating costs. As time goes by, building management requirements will change: private homes will be inhabited by several generations, rooms in commercial objects are put to different uses in their lifetime due to reorganisation or new tenants. Whereas a change of use or an expansion of a conventional installation is complicated and expensive, the flexibility of a KNX system pays off due to the minimum level of complexity. KNX opens the door to many possible savings in terms of a building's operating costs. From demand-related lighting control to energy management, the potential savings are determined by the depth of use.
