Summary This breath-taking project is a luxury Palace as a presidential palace for the Emir of the State of Qatar. The purpose of the project is to provide residence for the royal family in the most luxurious way. This aroused a desire and the determination in our company to perform, with the help of the KNX-Standard a memorable project. It is clear that such project has a very special and professional consultant. Hence this is our honour that we could get approval for Building-Automation-System from such consultant considering our famous competitors like Crestron, AMX, Dynalite, and Lutron. Likewise it must be said, that trough our engagement we accomplished to push the KNX-Standard an important step forward. Thereby we popularise the KNX-Standard in the Middle East massively.
Main technical highlights • Control concept can be used to create comfortable lighting scenes • Integration with the BMS for controlling A/C with electrical heater • Illumination level controlling by curtain control
Benefits of KNX Including the controlling of lights, dimmers, curtains, air conditioning, landscape, façade and integration with third parties such as BMS with BACnet and Honeywell, A/V with AMX & Crestron and a standalone A/C system like LG, we managed to build proper building management automation. Apart from that energy saving is another important point which we take into consideration. We furnished the back of the house with motion detectors. The landscape mode we activated with brightness sensors. Furthermore we are controlling energy through intelligent thermostat and actuator.
Which functions were realised with KNX The theatre and AMU is being controlled by BMS and thermostat belonging to that KNX system and integration between BACnet and KNX and the related collaboration done by Armiti. As KNX is able to use special retrofit LED light dimmers, we offered customers to change all incontinent lights with minimum 40 Watt to LED retrofit with only 7 Watt. We are controlling all home automation system functions through Crestron and AMX touchscreens as well as Audio system through KNX control sensors.
Lighting As KNX is able to use special retrofit LED light dimmers, we offered customers to change all incontinent lights with minimum 40 Watt to LED retrofit with only 7 Watt. The number of branches in chandeliers varied between 20 and 250 branches. With thank of KNX and its dimmers we saved the electrical power consumption as well as much less ceiling system volume.
Heating, ventilation, air conditioning With the help of the absolutely brilliant KNX controlling we are able to accomplish a constantly suitable temperature for the residents of the palace. When the temperature is starting to fall under a pleasant level, the electrical heater will immediately start raising the temperature again. Another important aspect is that the theatre and AMU is being controlled by BMS and thermostat belonging to that KNX system and integration between BACnet and KNX and the related collaboration done by Armiti.
Audio / Video We are controlling all home automation system functions through Crestron and AMX touchscreens as well as Audio system through KNX control sensors.
