Networking and data security

Networking your building technology

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

Gira Smart Home App

Control your Smart Home with your mobile device

The Gira X1 server App converts existing mobile devices into convenient operating elements for intelligent building technology. The user-friendly interface of the Gira Smart Home App displays the KNX installation of a single-family home and makes its functions available: Dimming, switching, roller shutters, blinds, heating control, value transmitter, scenes, timer and much more. Or you can simply control your Gira Smart Home using voice commands via Alexa. You can also directly control your Sonos speakers. Camera images can also be accessed “live”. Added to this are customisation options, such as personalising the home screen. The configuration and 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 remotely connecting to building technology (DDNS).

Mobile control with the Gira Smart Home App

Lighting control

Whether you want to switch lights on and off or precisely dim them to your desired setting: With the Gira Smart Home 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, precisely positioning them at a predefined height, and moving slats into the desired position: the user has everything under control with a mobile device – even when on the go.

Heating and air conditioning

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 Komfort or Night.

Function overview

All of a building’s functions are displayed as tiles in the Gira Smart Home App. Central functions such as switching devices on and off, adjusting the temperature or dimming in fixed intervals can be performed directly within this view.

Calling up scenes

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


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

Value transmitter

Predefined settings are used to control the blinds and heating: the value transmitter sends the values to the KNX system; the external devices are then able to evaluate these and perform the appropriate functions.

Camera monitoring

Know what’s happening in the house – even when you are away: the Gira Smart Home App can also transmit and display video images from IP cameras, for example. 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. An additional function also allows you to set the colour temperature.

Control music

The Smart Home App allows you to control Hi-Fi systems via KNX. The main audio functions can be accessed directly from the app. 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.
