There are various KNX products and manufacturers that are used by SmartBT for proposing the KNX solution and you can find them here.

DALI is the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface. It enables easy and intelligent management of lighting equipment. The DALI protocol is managed under the internationally recognised IEC standard 62386 and is promoted by the DALI working party and part of the ZVEI - German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers´ Association.

DALI is not a bus system and was developed for local or room solutions based on digital lighting control features. DALI stands for the interface protocol and not for a system itself.

DALI was developed to provide easy to install digital lighting control solutions for rooms and smaller applications, whereas Building Management Systems and Lighting Systems like EIB/KNX, LON, LUXMATE or BATIBUS provide complex solutions with a high degree of integration of other building functionalities like heating, security, etc.

DALI is a worldwide standard, specified by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The DALI protocol is set out in the technical standard IEC 62386. To learn more about DALI, please link to:

A number of well-known manufacturers’ equipment are used for either single DALI line jobs or for multiline DALI jobs. DALI is used not only for dimming (Lux Level control) but also for Colour Control (device type 8) either as tuneable white or selecting a colour from the sRGB spectrum.

Zublin is a well established Company from central Europe (Switzerland) founded in 1986 and specialised in design and production of systems (e.g. KNX, DALI) or standalone presence & motion detectors as well as sensor and LED lights. The devices are divided in the following groups:

  • KNX Detector
  • Presence Detector
  • Motion Detectors
  • Microwave Detectors
  • DALI Detectors
  • Dimm Detectors
  • Outdoor Detectors

Most of previously mentioned devices, apart from KNX detectors, are Line Voltage Standalone Occupancy Sensors
