Connectivity - device integrations
We present a constantly updated list of integrations, automation solutions and communication protocols supported by ConnectorIO.
By design, ConnectorIO is a multi-protocol system, independent of a specific hardware manufacturer, which is why the integration list will be successively increased.
One Platform - Many integration standards
We can connect devices already installed and described within the building network, as well as non-standard devices that are added to upgrade the system.
After enabling the device in ConnectorIO, you can control it, visualize its status and automate it based on interactions with all other elements of the ConnectorIO system.
Physical communication - individual system devices must be connected to the ConnectorIO hardware gateway, but they do not need to be physically connected to each other in order to use automation.
Available connection types:
- network interfaces,
- serial communication,
- wireless connectivity.
List of integrations, supported devices and communication protocols
KNX - open standard for commercial building automation.
Most popular standard for wired installations used in commercial real-estate and households. Based on a two-wire system.
ConnectorIO can integrate via IP gateways as well as with serial interfaces.
- "Intelligent" electrical installations.
- Actuators, relays.
- Integration with heating systems.
