    Smart Home & KNX training cases.

Theben has launched its Smart Home & KNX training cases providing in-depth technical education in building automation.

The devices are focused on the standard functions of a building from switching & dimming light, shading and heating to sensor technology as well as a wide range of other applications.

The practise-oriented KNX and Smart Home education can sometimes come up short due to incomplete or missing materials and trainees lose valuable time for programming and simulating necessary work steps.

The Theben training cases are ideal because there are so many different devices and application possibilities. Every day actions can be tested, learned and repeated and best of all, it all comes in a handy case.

The device selection has been well thought out and specifically adapted to KNX and Smart Home training. The two different cases are equipped with a total of 12 devices.

They cover the standard functions of a building and include four actuators, four classic sensors as well as a modern weather station and three system devices. Thus, all the necessary equipment is combined in one case, and nothing stands in the way of programming.

In addition, all systems are already wired, avoiding cable clutter.

This is a crucial value-add that Youtuber Torben Ledermann explained in his cooperation video with Theben AG.

"The precious time wasted in vocational school sorting cables and materials is bypassed here through goal-oriented preparatory work,” he said.

“In addition, the case can be reset in less than a minute using the integrated bus reset button. Consequently, the case is quickly and easily prepared for the next lesson.”

In addition to the devices in the lower case segment, both cases feature helpful simulations relevant to everyday life in the upper half.

A built-in floor plan of a single-family home allows trainees to test out the function of LED light strips for blinds, switchable and dimmable lighting, and heating and central control, among other things.

To make it easier to get started with KNX and smart home training, various interface options are available in the case. In addition to a USB port, the KNX training case also contains a KNX IPsecure router. This allows several cases to be connected to each other during exercise phases, for example to simulate different floors.

 At the same time, internal Theben devices as well as external KNX devices from other suppliers can be connected to the case via the KNX bus adapter.

The Smart Home training case also has an integrated WLAN router.

Operation is simple via the LUXORplay app - a plus point not only for young trainees. In this way, visualisations can be made more vivid and intuitive.
