  • Supports KNX Secure.
  • Central operating device for KNX,
  • Gira X1, Gira HomeServer, eNet, door communication, Alarm Connect security system.

New actuator range for switching and blinds – Standard & Comfort

For the new KNX actuators, Gira is now offering a Standard and a Comfort version for the first time. The Standard version is particularly suitable for residential buildings when used with the Gira X1 and for commercial installations that require a large number of actuators with only basic functions. The focus here is on quick start-up and an economic channel price.

The Comfort version, on the other hand, is characterised by a maximum of functionality and flexibility. Thanks to the large scope of functions, many functions can be used directly in the actuator itself. This not only saves time and nerves, but also reduces the bus load. In addition, a few simple clicks in the ETS now suffice for the actuator itself to take over even complex functions securely and reliably. In addition, both versions have a new DRA wiring concept. The connection terminals are now located on both sides of the housing instead of on top of each other, as previously.


  • Available in three designs: 6(1/3(2)-gang, 16(1/8(2)-gang and 24(1/12(2)-gang, in a Standard and Comfort version in each case. (** Switching (1) or Blinds(2))
  • Easy connection by means of optimised terminal strip on both sides of the housing.
  • Can be updated via Gira ETS Service App.
  • Clear context assistance in the application program.
  • Quick and easy start-up by means of an improved, redesigned ETS application program.
  • Manual operation with intelligent status display.
  • Possible extension of the scene auxiliary unit to include 64 scenes in the Comfort version.

Scheduled release date: August 2020

Gira – KNX Secure

The more connected and digital our everyday life becomes, the greater is the need for protection against tampering and attacks on smart installations. That’s why Gira uses KNX Secure. On the one hand, this extends the KNX IP protocol to ensure reliable protection of transmitted data (KNX IP Secure). On the other hand, KNX Secure protects the classic KNX log by means of encryption and authentication.

The security mechanisms are already activated when the KNX system is started up in a protected manner via the ETS. Subsequently, during ongoing operation, data communication, e.g. between actuators and sensors, is effectively protected against unauthorised access, tampering and tapping. With this cross-brand standard, KNX Secure sets a new benchmark for data integrity, authentication, encryption and how up-to-date data is.
All Gira KNX Secure devices can be updated via the new Gira ETS Service App to include extended functions and security updates. Now available for selected Gira KNX devices.


  • Optimum security for the KNX installation.
  • Cross-brand standard offers interoperability with the KNX products offered by other manufacturers.
  • Optimum amount of security individually tailored for each system: the electrician decides which level of security to set.
  • Seamless combination of secure and non-secure communication can be set (even on one device).
