By connecting KNX to Apple homeKit, you centralize your KNX devices together with all Apple-supported devices in a single mobile app. You can setup automations and use cool features like voice control and geofencing.
BUS smart homes are great but you might find yourself stuck in a wired world as it is really hard to integrate other products. And while BUS is definitely a reliable and long-lasting technology there is a whole new world of exciting wireless devices for music, security, cleaning, and more. You have one smart home - and you should only have one mobile app for controlling it. It is not surprising to end up using 5 mobile apps for managing different smart devices. With Smart Assistant mobile apps, you can centralize them all in a single, sleek mobile app that is really friendly to use. It can also be used to access your home remotely from anywhere, anytime.
From there you can use them in automation, scenes and other features offered by smart assistants. Automation features offered by assistants are also briefly described.
Below you can find a list of KNX devices that can be imported to Apple HomeKit.
The problem with BUS smart homes (KNX included) is that you can not really manage your automation without learning how to use KNX Config. This is quite a technical challenge that a lot of people don't choose to take on. If you don't master KNX Config, you always need to rely on your smart home integrator which is usually very busy & expensive. But with the Apple home app, the management of your automation has been made so easy that you can do it yourself through a friendly interface.
A geofence is an invisible boundary, a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area. For example, with geofencing you can create triggers so that when a device enters or leaves the pre-defined boundaries, a device turns on. This way a nicely lit house can await you when you come back from work.
Our 1Home Box and 1Home Bridge devices that connect KNX and Loxone smart homes to Smart assistant platforms are installed simply by connecting power & ethernet cable to the device. No technical skill required.
We have put extreme effort into making this as simple as possible to set up with your KNX or Loxone smart home. Our device auto-detection algorithm will read your smart home configuration and sync it with 1Home. Requiring no technical knowledge or help from certified professionals to setup.
In our 1Home dashboard, you can manage your smart home and your smart assistants. All your KNX and Loxone devices get synced once you connect to your smart home. Then you can decide which devices you want to use with smart assistants and also rename them. You can also manage your data privacy settings in the dashboard - making you in charge of your data at 1Home.
All our products are set up with no technical knowledge (except in a scenario of Direct KNX BUS connection) but if you need any advice our support & engineering team is happy to help. And if it turns out, the product is not right for you, we give you your money back, no questions asked. You can always "activate us" through the chat button in the bottom right corner. We'll first ask few questions automatically to segment your case and then the right person will engage.
