Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your own home automation setup or just a dreamer we all love looking at cool smart home installations. This one features a London home with a custom KNX and Comfort system installed by Control Freax of Woking…
“The alarm system has to be stand-alone, but by using the Cytech KNX UCM we can bring the alarm into our installation and holistic design which then gives the home-owner a much higher level of control and convenience” says CONTROL FREAX MD Carlton Reed.
The refurbished house in a smart London area is on four floors including a basement planned as a leisure room or practical gym. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms with a ground floor living and kitchen area.
Carlton Reed adds “We can take feedback from the alarm sensor, for example a window contact so that we can then tell the home-owner which windows have been left open when they left the house.” The Comfort alarm can be contacted simply by touching one button by the front door. The householder can not only switch off every light, turn the heating down to standby but also set the alarm.

In the hall the newly-introduced Comfort KPO6 designer flush-mounted keypad can be mounted together with other KNX switches in the same multigang frame (see image below).
KNX specialist CONTROL FREAX operates in London and Surrey. As well as KNX, Cytech’s Comfort Intelligent Home System has interfaces with Smart-House (Dupline) by Carlo Gavazzi, Cbus by Schneider, Philips Dynalite, Zwave, Lutron, Velbus and Rako.
