KNX is an open system, ie. any manufacturer (which is KNX member) can
develop products as long as they meet set requirements. This means that
there is no single supplier who "owns" the system.
The advantages of vendor independence is great. Since there are a large
number of suppliers / manufacturers competition between the products is
established. In addition, KNX future safe when the development does not
depend on a single company.
Different products from different manufacturers must be able to communicate
with each other. This is ensured through the certification of each individual
suppliers / manufacturers
As an example these suppliers / producers compete on the market. Of course,
their products work together with KNX products from other companies with
KNX certified products.
