Gira Control 19 Client 2

The convenient, representative interface to building technology with new hardware

The Gira Control 19 Client 2, a touch screen PC for control of the KNX installation via the Gira HomeServer or FacilityServer, is provided with completely revised hardware. Thanks to technical progress in the computer field, components are available, from the display through the mainboard to the power supply unit, which perform their tasks in a reliable and energy-efficient manner. The maximum energy requirement was reduced from 39W to 24W, in standby mode even from 5W to just 1.1W. Less power loss also means less waste heat and therefore a higher and longer service life. The Gira Control 19 Client 2 is operated using a large and brilliant display with a screen diagonal of 47 cm (18.5"), which clearly displays all building technology functions via the Gira interface.

Convenient operation of the entire building technology

The Gira Control 19 Client 2 enables the visualisation and operation of all functions in the building system technology. Its brilliant display with a screen diagonal of 47 cm [18.5"] is clearly legible from all directions so that both adults and children can see the display equally well and operate the functions accordingly. The capacitive touch screen ensures simple operation with a pleasant feel. Various information such as receipt of new e-mails, adverse weather warnings and many others can be displayed by a multicoloured parametrisable RGB LED behind the glass cover. The multi-award-winning Gira Interface in a uniform design has an intuitive structure that makes all the functions easily accessible. It clearly displays all building technology. This enables the central control of a wide range of areas such as lights, blinds, ventilation, heating and household appliances. In addition, it is possible to save and call up light scenes, listen to music, use Internet applications, show e-mails, display the energy consumption in the household in the form of clear graphs, and read alarm messages.

Connection to the Gira HomeServer/FacilityServer

The numerous functions of the Gira Control 19 Client 2 can be operated in connection with the Gira servers. The Gira HomeServer is the on-board computer for the house. As the interface between the modern electrical installation and the computer network, it controls all the components of home technology which are networked via the KNX system and enables the integration of a wide range of additional technologies. In this way, it enables operation of the KNX functions using state-of-the-art communication media. The Gira FacilityServer offers the complete functional range of the Gira HomeServer and is equipped with considerably more memory for its use in the commercial sector. This ensures that considerably larger amounts of data can be saved and more complex extensive visualisations created. In addition, it is possible to network several Gira FacilityServer units, so that buildings that are separated from each other can be linked to each other without problems. This allows local and higher-level applications to be coordinated with ease via the Gira Control 19 Client 2.

Remote control via the Gira HomeServer/FacilityServer

Together with the Gira servers, the Gira Control 19 Client 2 can also be controlled remotely. In this way, it can be set to energy-saving Standby mode when absent and "reawakened" upon return. The screen saver can also be controlled, and external programs such as web browsers can also be started and exited.

Integration in the Gira door communication

The Gira Control 19 Client 2 is equipped with a loudspeaker, microphone and colour camera. Thanks to these features, in combination with the Gira DCS-IP-gateway it can also be integrated in the door communication. The door communication is simply integrated into the Gira interface via a plug-in for the Gira HomeServer or Gira FacilityServer. See who's at the door, accept the conversation, and open the door – the Gira Control 19 Client enables extremely convenient door communication with broad functionality. Thus the Gira Keyless In components Fingerprint, Transponder, and Keypad can be integrated and all kinds of intelligent links can be created. For example, opening the front door can be coupled with switching on the lights or heating. Functions such as creating user groups, distributing rights, or personalising ringing tones open up numerous possibilities for individualisation. In addition it is also possible to use the Gira Control 19 Client as a pure home station without the HomeServer/FacilityServer with the aid of special software, the DCS Communicator.
