A new partnership for an intelligent home.

Hamburg, August 2019 – TV is becoming an important element in the intelligent home. This is made possible by the IoT-KNX gateway «APP MODULE» and the new smart home app «KNX Connect for Panasonic TV» – the result of a new partnership between Panasonic and BAB TECHNOLOGIE. Together, the gateway and app enable the integration of TV sets into building automation via the established KNX standard.

KNX is the leading European standard for building automation and is represented in over 40 countries. With the IoT-KNX Gateway «APP MODULE» and the Smart Home App «KNX Connect for Panasonic TV», Panasonic and BAB TECHNOLOGIE now offer an uncomplicated and cost-effective integration for KNX installations. The seamless KNX connection with «Panasonic Connect» enables the control of TV sets with all Smart Home components such as wall buttons or building visualisations. In addition to the basic functions such as switching on and off, volume control or channel selection, it is also possible to switch TV inputs via KNX commands. If desired, the TV can be integrated into entire Smart Home scenarios: At the push of a button, the blinds are lowered, the ambient lighting is activated and the TV is switched on with the desired source selection and volume.
