The Gira X1 app switches lights on and off, raises and lowers blinds and optimizes home temperature settings all over the building and from afar. The app for automating and visualizing a single-family home with a KNX system has a user-friendly interface and customization options.
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 moving to intelligent building technology simple.
- Personalization of home screen
- Project settings
- Individual user settings
- Lighting control
Switching lights on and off, or dimming them to exactly the desired setting: 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 the mobile device – even when on the go.
- Functional overview
All of a building's functions are visualized 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.
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 send the values to the KNX system; the external devices can analyze these values and execute the corresponding functions.
- Camera monitoring
Know what's happening in the house – even when you are away: Video images, for example from IP cameras, can be transmitted and displayed.
- Selecting coloured light
You can choose the perfect light color for every event and save favorite colors. The color selection function of the X1 supports RGB and RGBW values. There is also an additional function that allows you to set the color temperature.
- Playing music
Using the X1 app HiFi systems via KNX can be controlled. 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.
The Gira X1 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).
