Integrated KNX IP-Gateway - Safe money while gaining security

Every system integrator has been explaining us just how important remote access is to managing the KNX system, to ensure the expected service levels of building- or home owners. Remote Access offers you the possibility to quickly react on outings or adaptations needed, without bothering the customer unnecessary.

Don’t compromise the unparalleled security KNX systems have to offer with a dodgy ‘backdoor access’ via an ill-installed IP gateway.
