The team at the Sports Agency Company wanted to utilise KNX to provide an ambient setting when entering the building’s reception area, meeting rooms and boardroom.
Abbey Electrical & Mechanical Engineering installed and programmed the project working alongside Park who supported the installation with product choice and assisted commissioning.
For the purpose of the building, the KNX system enabled mood lighting control particularly within the reception and boardroom areas. Upon entering the boardroom the lighting comes on at a specific setting, the blinds operate and the TV automatically comes on providing an efficient and convenient meeting room for clients.
The Gira X1 was installed as it is a robust, professional automation app, that is easy to use via smartphone or a large iPad.
An iPad was installed within the boardroom wall on a docking station from Volare, to match the Gira wiring accessories. The iPad presents the X1 app to enable lights to be switched on/off, raise and lower blinds and control TVs.
Functions can also be monitored and controlled remotely when away from the building. Quick installation and minimal effort required in the start-up made it perfect for the client.
