Some 400 cassette roller blinds in apartments in the Central St Giles development in central London are controlled by KNX systems.

Better Blind Company, a member of the KNX UK Association, has made and installed some 400 automated cassette roller blinds in 69 luxury apartments at the Central St Giles mixed-use development in central London. These blinds have Sonesse 50 ILT motors and KNX gateways from Somfy, another member of KNX UK.

An important part of the installation was the motor control provided by the Somfy KNX range of products. Reality Logic commissioned the system consisting of several hundred KNX-ILT motor controllers discreetly installed throughout the apartments. All the blinds are integrated with a KNS smart home automation system.

The blinds are mostly installed in bedrooms. There are two per window, one behind the other. One uses a white screen fabric and the other a beige black-out fabric. Some blinds are up to 3.4 m wide, and Better Blind Company sourced extra-wide fabrics to enable them to be made without joins, improving the aesthetic appearance.
