Gira X1

Mobile smart home: Your intelligent home with the Gira X1

The cornerstone of the intelligent home

Switch lights on and off, raise and lower blinds, optimise your home temperature settings – all over the building and on the go: The new Gira X1 makes automating and visualising a single-family home with a KNX system more easy, convenient, and economic than it's ever been. This means more ease and security for users and occupants. Many functions can be monitored and controlled remotely when away from home. The space-saving, quick installation of the Gira X1 and the little effort involved in start-up and configuration, make deciding to opt for intelligent building technology easier.

Controlling the intelligent home via app

The app for the Gira X1 server turns existing mobile devices into convenient operating elements for intelligent building technology. The user-friendly interface of the Gira X1 app visualises the KNX installation of a single-family home and makes its functions available: dimming, switching, shutters, blinds, heating control, value transmitter, scenes, timer and much more. Camera images can also be accessed 'live'. Added to this are customisation options, such as personalising the home screen. Project and the user settings, such as timers and favourites, are saved on the Gira X1. The app is available from the iOS and Android app stores and can be used on smartphones and tablets. The Gira device portal offers a free service for reaching building technology from off site (DDNS).

Lighting control

Switching lights on and off, or dimming them to exactly the desired setting: with the Gira X1 app, lighting can be controlled with maximum flexibility. Several switch and dimmer templates are available for the various requirements.

Blind control

Raising or lowering blinds or roller shutters, positioning them at a precisely predefined height, and moving slats into the desired position: the user has everything under control with a mobile device – even when on the go.

Functional overview

All of a building's functions are visualised as tiles in the Gira X1 app. Central functions such as switching on and off, adjusting the temperature, or dimming in fixed steps can be operated directly within this view.

Setting the desired room temperature

The app can be used to control room temperature when combined with an appropriate KNX sensor. Desired temperatures can be called up using various operating modes such as Comfort or Night.

Calling up scenes

The perfect room ambiance includes the right light, the ideal temperature, appropriate privacy protection, and perhaps music in the background: the desired mood can be called up directly on a mobile device at the touch of a finger using the app.


A timer can be used to control many functions. Certain functions can thus be automatically triggered at a specified time every day or only on certain days of the week. For example, the blinds are then automatically raised every morning and lowered again in the evening, or the heating automatically switches to night mode.


Predefined settings control the blinds and heating: The value transmitter sends the values to the KNX system; the external devices can evaluate them and execute the corresponding functions.

Camera monitoring

Know what's happening in the house – even when you are away: With the Gira X1 app, video images, for example from IP cameras, can also be transmitted and displayed. Perfect for that extra peace of mind.

Selecting coloured light

You can choose the perfect light colour for every event and save your favourite colours. The colour selection function of the X1 supports RGB and RGBW values. There is also an additional function that allows you to set the colour temperature.

Playing and enjoying music

Using the X1 app you can control HiFi systems via KNX. The main audio functions are available in the X1 app itself. These include: Play/pause track, change volume, mute, switch between tracks, display track, artist, album and playlist and switch between playlists.

The perfect indoor climate

The "Air conditioning" function allows you to control an air conditioning system using the Gira X1. You can switch between the different operating modes and set the temperature, the level of ventilation and the direction of the air flow.

Starting up the Gira X1 – made simple with the Gira Project Assistant

Thanks to the visual parametrisation of the Gira X1 with the Gira Project Assistant, your electrician will be able to start up the X1 very easily – even remotely via the internet or VPN. Configuring the KNX system with the Gira X1 is simple and intuitive using drag & drop. Convenience, security, energy saving: all of this adds up to an intelligent home – implemented quickly and easily using the Gira X1.

Networking and data security

Networking your building technology

The intelligent networking and integration of the Gira X1 via KNX requires a cable, which is generally laid together with the power supply in new constructions. Functions such as lighting, blinds, heating, ventilation, and security technology can be centrally controlled or automated via this cable.

Protecting your data in the Smart Home

Security is essential if building technology is to be remotely controlled via mobile devices. The Gira X1 features an integrated VPN server to fulfil the highest security requirements. In addition, communication between the Gira X1 and themobile app as well as thecommunication software GPA is always encrypted.
