The second level of customization is functionality. The user defines what every button of the switch must do. We offer full programming customization to the customers, allowing them to find the sweet spot of form and functionality. Choose a button to switch a light on or off or both. Have it dim up or down by long-pressing the same button. Or program a scene on a button where the lights come on, the curtains open, the AC switches on at a preset ambient temperature. It is all left to the decision of the customer. And they are limited only by their imagination.
For more functionality, we also have high-end touch panels that offer as much functionality as a user may require. They can also offer a mirror of their interface to a phone or a tablet. Break down a room's control into individual pages with lighting, climate, curtains, scenes, all getting different pages or incorporate the entire home's control onto a master touch panel with every page acting as a room's master control. Again, the customer decides on the icons and the functionality. Password protect every page or even individual buttons on the keypad.
Beyond the front end devices and their functionality, you can also choose how your smart home automation system reacts to your voice instructions. Today, a popular device found in most homes is a voice assistant. Be it an Amazon Echo® or a Google Home® device. They play music, order groceries, brief you on the weather, or entertain children by reciting fairytales. They can also control your home if you link them to the KNX Eco-structure. We at Messung recommend our clients to incorporate this control in their homes with some basic functionality programmed. Say 'Alexa® Good Evening' for the lights to come on in the living, the AC to switch on, and if programmed, some ambient light music to start playing over the internet radio (all optional and user-defined).
