STANDARDS Australia, the Australian standards and standardization organisation, has officially declared the intelligent building networking standard KNX as the national technical specification. The Australian smart home market is expected to exceed USD 1 billion revenue mark in the coming year.
In doing so, STANDARDS Australia, whose standards are also of significance in New Zealand, acquired key parts of the ISO/IEC 14543-3 standard, under which KNX is already standardized on an international level. KNX is therefore also expanding its position in the market for smart home and smart building solutions in Australasia.
“The standardization in Australia and New Zealand is another important milestone for us. It’s proof of KNX’s future security as a non-proprietary standard and also of the quality of all KNX-certified products,” commented Franz Kammerl, President of the KNX Association.

KNX meets numerous standards in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, China, and US. With respect to international standards, the growth of KNX allows for unprecedented interoperability and communication ability between KNX products, independence from any hardware and software technology, and the possibility of integration into existing system landscapes.
