The importance of documentation - A guest article by E-Necker



The focus of this post is the certification of a KNX installation. After finishing the installation of a Smart Home, it is very important to write a documentation about the Smart Home.



But what is this documentation?


This documentation is a complete collection of all device addresses to know what is installed under what address. Its also important to get the complete configuration of the project file.

Do I really need a documentation?


Yes, if you do not include a documentation and you want to adapt the installation it would only be possible through a costly reconstruction or by reprogramming the whole installation. In extreme cases some parts would need to be removed to get them reset by the manufacturer.

So, it can only be advised to insist on getting a final documentation including a 7-point check
