The Gira G1 central operating unit is the all-rounder for state-of-the-art building technology. It not only makes central control of a Smart Home possible, but also, as one of the first KNX operating devices, guarantees strict data security. The KNX Secure software update enables encrypted communication between the Gira G1 and other KNX secure-capable devices, such as the Gira KNX switch and blind actuators, and keeps it safe from manipulation.
The software update allows the Gira X1 to be upgraded by 125/250 functions and 500/1000 data points. This now also makes it suitable for use in large buildings. The software packages are available from the Gira AppShop. In addition, the Gira X1 also has a number of new operating features. The end user can therefore add an astro or random function to functional clocks, sort and rename functions or rooms in the Gira Smart Home App, or change the icons in the app. Furthermore, seamless integration into the Sonos Smart Home System is possible, and it features the “Works with Sonos Label” certification. An upgrade of the Gira IoT services to allow voice control using Google Assistant and the cloud-based web service IFTTT is also included with the software update.
The central control unit for the enhanced Smart Home is being given a comprehensive software update. Start-up of the Gira HomeServer, for example, will become easier and more efficient, and operation more intuitive for the user. Data transmission is encrypted thanks to KNX Secure. The floor plan can be visualised in QuadClient for intuitive and quick operation. A new editor also ensures that the floor plan visualisation is easy to create. The straightforward integration of the Gira Alarm Connect security system into the Gira HomeServer by means of a logic node is another example of the numerous new features. In order to ensure better readability during the day, there is now a white version of the user interface along with the black one. Switching between day and night mode can be done automatically or manually.
A high-quality frame version is the latest addition to the Gira Esprit design line – Gira Esprit bronze (PVD). The sophisticated appearance of Gira Esprit bronze (PVD) makes a timeless and elegant impression, and effectively complements accessories available in a similar colour, such as door handles or fittings. More than 300 functions from the Gira System 55 are available. The frame is available in 1-gang to 4-gang versions.
The Gira E2 design line in grey matt is a logical addition to the existing range of colours. The new colour allows new design ideas to be turned into reality. A new colour is now also available for the Gira System 55, making a large number of functional inserts in grey matt available – from the SCHUKO socket outlet to the blind controller. The Gira E2 grey matt design line is available in 1-gang to 5-gang versions and for normal and flat installation.
The modular Gira System 106 door intercom, which is designed for flexible integration with other systems, will be available in two new colours from autumn 2020 on. With stainless steel as their basis, the trend colours bronze (PVD) and black matt will supplement the existing range. The design fronts used for the audio and info modules are easy to replace without any need to replace the technology they use for operation.
Gira is adding a room temperature control to its popular Gira System 3000. This now makes heating control possible within the integrated Gira System 3000 as well. The time-controlled temperature setting for individual rooms saves energy and ensures individual comfort at home. The room temperature control can be regulated both on site using the operating element and by using Bluetooth (in the Komfort version). Both operating modes – by direct device input or using the Gira System 3000 App – makes it easy and intuitive to enter all settings for the room temperature.
The highly responsive and simultaneously very discreet Gira KNX Mini Komfort presence detector offers a wide range of functions. Gira has added an integrated temperature sensor to it for even more usage options. This not only allows it to control the light according to the persons in the room, but also measure the current room temperature itself and trigger switching commands. The compact design and a flexible installation concept ensure simple flush-mounted and surface-mounted installation. Thanks to the IP44 protection type, installation is also possible
outdoors or in damp rooms.
For the first time, Gira is now offering a Standard and a Komfort version for KNX actuators. The Standard version is particularly suitable for residential buildings in combination with the Gira X1 – along with commercial facilities requiring a large number of actuators with basic functions only. The Komfort version makes the use of many functions possible in the actuator itself thanks to the large range of functions. That saves time and reduces the bus load. Both versions score points with a new DIN rail adapter wiring concept: the connection terminals are now located on both sides of the housing, instead of on top of each other as previously the case.
The new Gira KNX button is particularly well suited to residential properties and real estate in which a KNX system is installed and classic operating elements are used. There is also a large number of options when it comes to design: the Gira KNX button can be combined with the design lines from the Gira System 55 and with the Gira F100.
A surface-mounted housing in a pure white glossy finish is now also available for the high-quality Gira E2 design line. It enables new design solutions to be retrofitted wherever there are no cables and flush-mounted boxes installed in the wall. The new surface-mounted solution can be combined with over 300 function inserts from the Gira System 55.
