European Smart Homes 2017

Date: 25th October 2017 - 26th October 2017 Location: London - UK

ACI’s European Smart Homes 2017 will be taking place in London, UK, on 25th & 26th of October 2017.

How are we different from other industry events? This is a capped conference geared towards senior level attendees with industry leaders sharing their insights in an intimate and interactive setting. Join us for an intensive two days of expert analyses, benchmarking and excellent networking opportunities and hear from key players representing the entire smart homes value chain.

In 2017, the European “Smart Home” market has grown dramatically and is expected to increase 14.5% between 2017 and 2022. According to Gartner, it is expected that a typical family home could contain more than 500 smart devices by 2022. In this increasing industry, it is imperative to fit, adapt and learn to monetize all the possibilities offered. The actual sectors involved in the smart home market are security & access control, entertainment systems, lighting control, HVAC control, and home health systems but many more are coming. Today not only products but also services – mainly the user experience – are really important for the consumers in order to cover their principal concerns.

KNX is the worldwide STANDARD for all applications in home and building control, ranging from lighting and shutter control to various security systems, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, monitoring, alarming, water control, energy management, smart metering as well as household appliances, audio/video and lots more.

As the world’s only open standard for smart homes and buildings (ISO/IEC 14543-3), KNX has been around for more than 27 years and now offers an array of over 10000 KNX certified products manufactured by more than 400 suppliers (manufacturers). This means that the specifier can tailor an installation to meet the needs of the building and the end-user, who is never tied to a single proprietary system.

Combining complex technology with an easy-to-operate user interface, KNX installations offer simple visualisation, monitoring and control, creating properties that are both comfortable and energy efficient. Indeed, research carried out by the University of Bremen has demonstrated that a KNX building management system can provide energy savings of 40% with shading control, 50% with individual room control, and 60% with lighting and ventilation control.

There are now over 70.000 accredited KNX integrators worldwide installing KNX systems into all kinds of buildings, from domestic dwellings to offices, hospitals, sports stadia and transport terminals.
