Gira FacilityServer

The Gira FacilityServer offers sophisticated solutions for centrally controlling the entire building technology and is specially designed for the exacting standards of the commercial sector. It can be used to monitor, operate and program the entire KNX installation and to network all the parts of a building to one another. In addition, it serves as a gateway for other facility systems, to which it provides consumption and operating data.

As the Gira FacilityServer connects to the internet via TCP/IP, the building management system can also be accessed externally, not just via a PC, but also using any internet-enabled device, such as a smartphone or Web TV. The Gira FacilityServer is supplied as a 19" insert with an aluminium trim plate for installation into a 19" rack.

Areas of application

The Gira FacilityServer offers the complete functional range of the Gira HomeServer and is equipped with considerably more memory for its use in the commercial sector. This ensures that considerably larger amounts of data can be saved and more complex, extensive visualisations created. In addition, several Gira FacilityServer units can be networked, so that buildings that are spatially separated from each other can be interconnected without problems. This means that local and higher-level applications can be coordinated in a complex manner.


The Gira FacilityServer takes over the monitoring and control of the entire KNX installation in commercial facilities. It interconnects the various functions and facilities, combines their functions and stores all the consumption and operating data. Recurring sequences can be automated and processes optimised. Intelligent control by the Gira FacilityServer guarantees optimum working conditions at all times and helps take the burden off staff. However, the building technology status can also be conveniently viewed and changed directly from a PC workstation, either as a whole or for a specific floor or an open-plan office.


Intelligent energy management is of particular importance in the commercial sector, since it allows capacity to be saved and operating costs to be reduced. The Gira FacilityServer enables heating, cooling and lighting to be controlled on the basis of need, and to define this individually for each room using time and usage profiles. This ensures that power is only used when it is actually needed. This not only lowers consumption, but also ensures optimum working conditions and time savings through automated processes. The Gira FacilityServer can also monitor complex technical facilities and significantly increase efficiency through process optimisation. In the process it documents all the consumption and operating data, thus providing extensive material for further optimisation of energy management.


Security is extraordinarily important in the commercial sector, because high-quality equipment and large facilities have to be protected and business secrets safeguarded. In this connection, the Gira FacilityServer ensures security at the highest level. Alarm devices and sensors as well as IP cameras can be networked through it. These devices, sensors and cameras monitor both the inside and outside of the entire building, as well as the technical facilities – and if they register an irregularity or danger, the Gira FacilityServer triggers an alarm and takes initial countermeasures. In the event of leakage or overheating, or if limits are exceeded, a detailed fault message is displayed immediately, for example on the PC monitor. The system thus makes it possible to respond to problems quickly before any more damage occurs.
