The SAUTER ecos504/505 room controllers already had a KNX/TP1 interface. They have now been supplemented with an IoT driver. The ecos-IoT is a programmable BACnet server which allows direct integration of KNX devices. It also has optional IoT functions (MQTT client / broker). KNX devices in the TP1 network of the plant can publish data to the cloud via the ecos-IoT. At the same time, MQTT data from the cloud can be subscribed to and integrated into building and room automation. The KNX/TP1 interface and the IP interface for BACnet and MQTT thus enable cloud integration of data coming from touch panels, mobile apps, KNX actuators, and sensors as well as speech recognition services.
