Every day, ambitious, creative and innovative smart home and building projects are realised with KNX. After the application period for the KNX Awards 2022, 55 top quality KNX projects were selected and nominated from the large number of applications by a top-class jury. 12 of them and 1 KNX Member ended up receiving the globally coveted trophy after being introduced by renowned laudators and then announced as the winners during the online celebration. The event was watched by thousands from the worldwide KNX Community, and for the first time, the audience could cast the deciding vote for the People’s Choice Award live.

New categories, more nominees and more winners
With the KNX Awards, we put the hardworking KNX installers in the picture that portrayed their excellent knowhow in smart home and building automation with KNX. By dividing our international categories in Smart Home and Smart Building subcategories, even more diverse achievements could be awarded. In a fast-moving and ever-more digital world, we are proud we could nominate very strong projects for another new category, innovation. It clearly shows that our KNX community sees the importance of IoT and secure solutions. For the first time, we could also hand out a trophy to a KNX Member, without their efforts in development, the KNX technology could not exist. The winner was entirely chosen by the KNX Community and we hope that this encourages our KNX Manufacturers to keep introducing their latest KNX solutions to the market.
