Gira has expanded it’s KNX Mini Komfort presence detector to include a new integrated temperature sensor. New and available now, the new integrated temperature sensor means the Gira KNX Mini Komfort presence detector can now respond to thermal motion in addition to light so your home wastes less energy.

Intuitive by design, the Gira KNX Mini Komfort presence detector not only adjusts light according to how many people are in a room, but thanks to the new 2020 update it can now measure the room temperature and automatically calibrate system settings to the most comfortable climate available.

Mark Booth, Managing Director at Gira UK said: “The digital economy has become a quick-change market, constantly developing to meet the needs of the end user. By expandingthe Gira KNX Mini Komfort to include a new temperature sensor, we can reduce the number of devices you need in the home to provide one, subtle design solution for controlling light and heat that is unobtrusive and retrofit suitable.”

Designed to detect even the smallest of movements, the user can automatically control various functions in the KNX system. Highlights include:

Room temperature control: The new sensor measures the temperature and responds to thermal motion so it can adjust the heating, ventilation or air-conditioning according to how many people are in the room: saving energy and money.

Lighting and blind control: There’s no need to turn up or dim the lights as the Mini Komfort can sense ambient brightness in addition to occupants in the room, altering ambient light to suit the host-environment. The device will automatically switch off when no movement is detected, so lights won’t be left on accidentally. It can also be configured to run specific lighting scenes to fit into the user’s daily routine, as well as open/close blinds when people step in or out of the room.

Subtle and unobtrusive design: With a height of just 1.25mm, the design ring which can be flush-mounted offers a low-protrusion, minimal profile which can be styled to suit different styles and tastes. Also available surface-mounted, each ring can be colour coated to match an existing wall or ceiling, as desired.

Indoor and outdoor use: This mini presence detector with integrated temperature sensor is small, but mighty, able to etect the smallest movements. Designed with a large detection range (diamater appoximately 12m with 3m installation height) this system solution is ideal for entrance areas. Plus, it meets the IP44 standard so is 100% waterproof and able to be installed outside.
