The Dawn of a New KNX Age: the KNX IoT 3rd Party API

Introducing the KNX IoT 3rd Party API by KNX. The IoT is well entrenched in the modern smart building industry. Until now, there have been a number of obstacles in deployment. Often different devices need their individual apps to function. This creates difficulty in interoperability between platforms and devices. There has also been an elevated dependency on Internet and Cloud connections, as well as issues in maintaining ‘patchwork’ installations.

That has all changed with the launch of KNX IoT 3rd Party API by KNX. This new protocol standardizes communication, and allows non-KNX and KNX products to be used in a single installation with all new servers that will support this standardized protocol. The advantages for the industry are many-fold. They range from lowering construction costs and increasing speed of project deliveries, to improving reliability and compatibility of systems.

For both device vendors and the end-user, the new protocol is a huge advantage as only one standard API is needed to control them all.

In collaboration with Schneider Electric at the recent Light + Building expo, we successfully demonstrated the use of the KNX IoT 3rd-Party API that created interoperable interaction between Schneider WISER, Simlab AR, and our Aragon smart speaker.
