Due to the digital networking of buildings, the dangers emanating from attackers have changed and security in home and building automation has become one of the key buzzwords of our time. To deal with massive, economic threats such as avoiding security systems or a complete shutdown of a building automation system, our solutions offer you two options.
New KNX IP Security driver for the NETx BMS Platform
As one of the first manufacturers, we are now offering you new KNX IP Security drivers for the NETx BMS Platform to additionally protect your projects against external attacks. The NETx BMS Platform implements secure KNXnet/IP tunneling, which protects the connection between the NETx BMS Platform and secure KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces against malicious users with high-security standards.
Security in existing KNX projects
In order to avoid dangerous security gaps in existing KNX projects, software tools can be used on the building management level, which increase the security:
- Intrusion detection and alarm systems
- Device monitoring and logging
- Visualization that supports TLS/SSL connections
In addition, various organizational measures such as the isolation of building automation networks and training of electrical installers and integrators for the correct and safe use of technologies can be implemented.
Secure, centralized management through the use of a building management (BMS) solution
The building management solution, in this case the NETx BMS Platform, is part of the IP network and communicates with the KNXnet IP interfaces and/or routers via KNXnet/IP tunnelling. The server has access to all KNX lines via these connections. Thus, central commands can be implemented directly in the server and then triggered from the customer via the visualization.
