Connect! – Network functions of the CasaConnect control centre

NETWORKABLE BUT CLOUD-FREE

In addition to home automation, the control centre enables surfing and streaming on the display. You can, for example, watch the weather forecast or play your favourite music. Loudspeakers are integrated in the device.

CasaConnect KNX is network and internet compatible, but cloud-free. Setting data is only stored in the system - for more data sovereignty. Without the active consent of the user on the device, the control system cannot be accessed from outside!

CasaConnect-APP

The CasaConnect KNX app turns the smartphone into a remote control for home automation. A maximum of 10 end devices (Android and iOS) can be used simultaneously for control.

To use the app, the smartphone and the control centre must be in the same WLAN. Access from on the road can be made via VPN. 

HELP BY REMOTE ACCESS

A remote diagnosis tool can be used to provide quick and inexpensive assistance with settings without having to be on site. After approval by the user, a service technician can access the control centre via the Internet.

With the CasaConnect sets, the system's KNX project is stored in encrypted form on the SD card of the control centre. The user can grant an integrator (via VPN) or the Elsner Service (via tunneling) access to the project via the router of his home network.

    The easiest way to get started with KNX!

    Remove the complex KNX integration from your project - benefit from the advantages of CasaConnect KNX sets!
    COMPLETE PACKAGE

    Each set contains selected KNX operating devices, sensors and actuators for easy entry into KNX Smart Home. This gives you the basis for powerful automation of lighting, heating, sun protection and ventilation and covers safety functions such as smoke and water leakage detection.

    CasaConnect KNX Set 10 “Apartment” makes an apartment smart. CasaConnect KNX Set 20 “House” contains the same devices, but so many that a second floor and a cellar can also be automated.

    NO ETS NECESSARY

    Each set is delivered fully configured and addressed. The devices therefore only need to be installed. They communicate with each other as soon as they are connected to the KNX bus line, which supplies them with bus and auxiliary voltage. 

    PRECONFIGURED KNX PROJECT

    Start directly with the individual setting of the functions on the display of the CasaConnect KNX Center. First, the basic definitions for the different areas are set. For example, whether the sun protection in the living room is a roller shutter or a blind.

    Then the automatic functions are adapted to the personal preferences of the user on the display. With CasaConnect KNX, high-end automation is possible. The functions are extensive and  detailed, but can be easily set using the CasaConnect KNX menu navigation.

    USER-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY

    With the CasaConnect KNX Center and additional Cala Touch KNX displays as control points
    in the individual rooms, the technology is accessible at all times. Intuitively understandable
    user interfaces and simple menu navigation ensure that everyone can find their way around
    the smart home.

    FUTURE-PROOF

    The KNX world is open to you! CasaConnect KNX and all components of the set are registered KNX devices. This means that the sets can be extended at any time with KNX devices from all manufacturers. As the ETS project is part of the set, a KNX integrator has the perfect basis to extend the system.
