The topic of group addresses is particularly important. If you want to successfully plan and implement a KNX project, the structured creation of group addresses is the most important basic requirement. In addition to a professional structure, we will explain everything you need to know about listening and transmitting group addresses and feedback addresses. Furthermore, we show you why the KNX system simply does not want to listen to some group addresses and much more. This course is designed for beginners and we explain it in a way that you will be able to implement your first KNX project.

Absolutely! The course is designed to teach absolute beginners about KNX and ETS. Chapter 1 covers the necessary knowledge on KNX side. In addition, we offer a step-by-step guide (Chapter 3) which covers everything from project planning to commissioning and handover. According to one of our reviewers, our course is a "required reading for every (!) prospective builder who wants to help design the electrical planning and later on maintain the KNX installation. The course is also a successful reference book for electricians who do not deal with KNX projects every day, who want to change to ETS5 or who want to familiarise themselves with the subject again."

Furthermore, you will be listed as an official partner of KNX Association ( These two advantages are reason for many of our customers to get certified.

What our customers say about us

Guido, alias PhilW

After four years of KNX in the house, I have now taken the course with the Christmas special. If I had read/bought the course before my renovation, I would have saved myself many a headache, bad planning and incomprehensible nodding of my wife's head. And of course I would have built up my ETS project more sensibly. Sometimes I really think about doing everything from scratch! When I retire...

In the case of a new building and its preliminary planning, the basic/preliminary knowledge (if not more) that the course teaches you is worth a lot of money and YouTube can never explain the complexity to you. Especially if you also want to integrate the IoT and configure everything yourself.

Frank, alias evolution

This ebook offers beginners as well as experienced ETS users a good overview of the functioning of KNX and the correct use of the software. Due to the good structure, a beginner is introduced step by step deeper and deeper into the subject matter, the necessary working steps are described in an understandable way and illustrated clearly. I can well imagine that even inexperienced users can quickly find the content they need with the help of the clearly arranged table of contents and get a pragmatic solution that is both comprehensible and easy to understand for everyday tasks. The attached planning documents complete the view on the requirements for a KNX installation for the client and give an electrician, who realizes KNX projects only occasionally, a suggestion for his documentation.

This tutorial is, in my opinion, a must-read for every contractor who wants to participate in the electrical planning and maintain KNX installations at a later date. The quick course is also a successful reference work for electricians who do not deal with KNX projects every day, want to switch to ETS5 or want to familiarize themselves with the subject matter again. A big praise to you, Manfred and the publisher, that with this standard work you contribute greatly to let the KNX autodidact die out soon.
