KNX Telegraf Input PluginUse This InfluxDB Integration for Free
Konnex (or KNX) is a standard protocol for building automation. It’s used to control energy, security systems, lighting, audio, and more. It links sensors, controllers, and other IoT devices so you can remotely control and automate systems within your home.
