Tech Blog: Gira Presence Detection
Featuring a subtle design and a flat profile, the Gira KNX presence detector mini range is the ideal choice for properties with varied architectural demands. The range includes a Standard and Comfort models allowing a cost-effective solution depending on the system’s requirements (the Comfort variant providing a greater functional capacity).

Both the Standard and Comfort models detect even the smallest movements in the room and enable automatic control of various functions in the KNX system depending on presence. For example, control of lighting, heating, or ventilation can be tailored to the lifestyle of the end-user and to maximise the energy efficiency of the system. Thanks to various design options each model can fulfil ceiling, flush-mounted or surface-mounted installation and are suitable for both internal and external use.

KNX presence detector Mini Standard

The Gira KNX presence detector Mini Standard features an integrated bus coupling, three PIR sensors and is equipped with a brightness sensor. It can either be used as an individual device, a main unit or an auxiliary unit and enables fully automatic or semi-automatic lighting control. It can also be combined with other Gira KNX presence detectors. The overrun time can be set flexibly and adapts to user behaviour if desired. Only a minimum and a maximum value must be specified for this purpose. Depending on the duration of the movement it detects in the room, the Gira KNX presence detector Mini Standard then selects a correspondingly short or long overrun time.
