A panel for controlling KNX systems and door communication.

Intuitive and modern - the way building control should function. Ideally, the permanently installed panel is handled similar to a mobile terminal device. This means that the entire house, the apartment, the office or business premises can be controlled with a swiping gesture or the tip of the finger. For this reason Busch-Jaeger is extending its product range with the new Busch-SmartTouch® KNX. It is the successor of the successful SMARTtouch.

The new panel offers a central operating location for the ABB i-bus® KNX, which can at the same time also be used as indoor video station for the ABB-Welcome door communication system - an outstanding combination. The Busch-SmartTouch® is ideally suited for new buildings and for objects being renovated. It is ideal for use in single residential units as well as in hotels or conference rooms in representative functional buildings.


Intuitive operation for greater comfort and convenience.

With its high-quality capacitive surface the Busch-SmartTouch® adapts itself to the mobile trend and is as easy to operate as a smartphone or tablet. The display, which is intuitively operated, can be used to switch and dim the lights in the entire building, as well as control the blinds and the heating. The integrated room temperature controller cares for this. Also complete scenes can be created from all these functions. A total of 480 KNX control elements are displayed on a maximum of 30 pages. The user himself can define his favourite pages and set time programs. Also logic functions and presence simulation are easy to specify. All of this makes the life of the user more pleasant, safer and it saves energy.

The colour display has a diagonal of 17.78 cm (7") in 16:9 format. The special feature of the Busch-SmartTouch®: It has a minimal mounting height of only 13 mm. The panel is available in two colour versions – in genuine black or white glass. This allows it to be perfectly combined with the c a r a t® and Busch-axcent® switch ranges. The bottom design bar made of brushed stainless steel lends the panel that visual refinement. In combination with the mounting frame the Busch-SmartTouch® can be mounted on the old Busch-Jaeger control panel box, normal flush-mounted boxes or also on the new ABB-Welcome table stand.

One device for two systems.

The operating system of the Busch-SmartTouch® is located on a supplied micro SD card (SDHC). This must be inserted in the suitable fixture on the device prior to initial commissioning. Subsequent updates of the operating system are then made via the SD card. The home automation of the KNX system and the fully integrated functions of ABB-Welcome in the one device - a real plus for the Busch-SmartTouch®. Aside from the direct KNX connection, the panel also has a direct two-wire connection for the ABB-Welcome. The door communication system, which has won several awards, impresses with its holistic concept for numerous areas of application and sets new standards both technically as well as creatively. Instead of requiring an additional indoor station for ABB-Welcome, now door calls can be simply accepted via the Busch-SmartTouch®. This opens totally new dimensions for home automation - with a high degree of comfort, safety and energy efficiency.
