knx technology all buildings are made intelligent with knx merten ­ there from the start the central idea of a standard for home automation and building control across different manufacturers was fundamentally moulded by merten merten is one of the driving forces behind innovation and technology in building system technology an initial complete product palette was already available in 1991 nowadays the merten product range covers a full range of switch cabinet components in addition to design and function-oriented control interfaces and sensors universal dimming actuators blind actuators switch actuators power supplies binary inputs gateways etc further information about the worldwide standard for knx building system technology can be obtained from the home page of the knx association and the german eiba the use of intelligent knx technology in the various types of buildings can be experienced online at knx ­ the only worldwide open
