The Gira G1 is already recognised by tradesmen as a compact, powerful and versatile control centre for the KNX system. All functions can be conveniently controlled by touching or gesturing on the brilliant multi-touch display with a resolution of 480 × 800 pixels. With Release 2, the Gira G1 now also offers wireless connection via IP to building technology through WLAN to suit any situation in the building.
Until now, the Gira G1 could only be connected to the building technology via LAN cable. This connection via LAN is still recommended in new buildings or in buildings with existing cabling. But it's a different story for renovations and modernisations where no new cabling is to be installed. Here, a connection via Wi-Fi and an appropriate interface--which can be a KNX IP router or the Gira DCS-IP-gateway--is the right choice. It's simple, quick and clean, and does not require any structural work. The WLAN model is available in WLAN 230V and WLAN 24V versions.
However, due to the transmission properties in wireless networks, KNX telegrams may get lost. To ensure faultless KNX communication in a wireless network at all times, a Gira KNX IP router (version v3 and above) is therefore required, specially equipped with an additional “reliable KNX communication” function. This will guarantee flawless communication even in heavy wireless network traffic.
Even when connected via WLAN, the G1 remains a true all-rounder with regard to building technology and can be used for a variety of purposes: switching or dimming lights, adjusting entire lighting scenarios, moving blinds and controlling numerous functions via timers. In combination with the Gira push-button sensor 3 or a KNX CO2 sensor the Gira G1 can also be used as a room temperature auxiliary unit. With the integration of the free Gira online weather service, weather forecasts can even be called up with the G1. In combination with the Gira DCS IP gateway and a door station video, the Gira G1 can also be used as a home station. When the doorbell rings, the device automatically switches to door intercom mode. Another new feature that will be shown at Light + Building is the user interface, now offered in 22 languages.
