URC Total Control now KNX-compatible
URC has released a two-way Total Control module for KNX, which it calls "the world standard network communication protocol for intelligent buildings." Total Control products can now be installed in a KNX environment, said the company.
"KNX is the de facto standard control platform in Europe and is rapidly spreading throughout Asia and other parts of the world," said URC Director of Marketing Cat Toomey.

The KNX module works with most URC Interfaces when using Two-way Commands, Two-way Queries, Device Events and Macro Control. Additionally, it's fully compatible with URC Mobile for iOS and URC Mobile for Android (current versions).
KNX is a standardized (EN 50090, ISO/IEC 14543), OSI-based network communications protocol for intelligent buildings. The KNX standard is administered by the KNX Association. KNX is approved as a European (CENELEC EN 50090 and CEN EN 13321-1) and an International standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3).
The KNX Association describes KNX as "...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."
