Schneider Electric presents the new KNX Pro T push button – KNXtoday

It’s no surprise that the KNX Push Button Pro, introduced in 2019, has become a favorite of contractors, building managers and owners. Easy to select, install and program, the KNX Push Button Pro has what it takes to move projects forward quickly. Once installed, its many convenient features allow occupants to easily control lighting, shades and scenes intuitively from a single sensor cover. The smartphone-style backlit touchscreen automatically greets the user and lights up as they approach. Add to that flexible sensor zone allocation and express commissioning, and you have all the ingredients for a winning smart building system.

Enter the new KNX Push Button Pro T for more energy efficiency and hygiene

The KNX Push Button Pro was awesome in 2019. Not long has passed, but times have certainly changed. Schneider Electric has kept up with the ever-changing smart building market, not to mention the frenetic pace of today’s unpredictable public health environment, with its advanced all-in-one smart switch featuring a range of customizable functions and, new, an in temperature sensor and a contactless mode. Stakes? Save energy and protect occupants from infectious diseases. As part of the SpaceLogic KNX product line, Push Button Pro T is designed to easily integrate into residential and commercial smart building networks.

Remove the thermostat, not the temperature control, from the room

Room temperature control requires a temperature sensor in the room, usually next to a door. In KNX, this is often a combined push button/thermostat device. Push-button shutters and additional light switches, but without thermostats, are usually installed in a room for added comfort and convenience. In common areas that are accessible to the public, you may not want people to be able to adjust the thermostat. Now, with KNX Push Button Pro T, you can control the temperature from a Multitouch Pro (in the Facility Manager office, for example) or from a telephone, but not from the room itself. And better temperature control leads to greater energy savings.

Touchless control reduces contact with potentially contaminated surfaces

Door openers, soap dispensers and touchless faucets are not new and have proven themselves in the commercial sector. With the pandemic driving demand for even more contactless technology, Schneider Electric is once again ensuring Life is On by bringing contactless technology to the KNX Push Button Pro. The new contactless mode of the KNX Push Button Pro T reacts to the predefined gesture like a horizontal or vertical swipe to trigger a previously defined function.

The same sophisticated design to accent any room

KNX Push Button Pro T still looks great. The design is flat and the interface is elegant. Individual touch function areas (users can choose up to four and customize their own) are indicated by modern light-up icons that shine through the translucent surface. In night mode, the intensity of illuminated icons is reduced. In silent mode, the panel goes to sleep and only turns on when a user approaches.
