Nuvo announces KNX integration for Player Portfolio whole home audio system
The integration of this worldwide communications protocol for smart home devices is via a free and automatic v4.2.0 software update. The corresponding app update for iOS and Android devices will also be available for download from iTunes and the Google Play Store.
KNX will allow owners of Nuvo Player Portfolio systems to control them using the technology platform that more than 400 manufacturers build upon. ETS programming in conjunction with the Nuvo KNX Interface will serve as a versatile bridge between system components and all KNX based systems, products and functions.
“Our integration of the KNX protocol is very important to our dealers across Europe. It greatly multiplies the opportunities for them to recommend the Player Portfolio as a part of larger home systems,” said Legrand North America senior marketing communications manager Desirée Webster.
The firmware update will add to Player Portfolio control capabilities including the addition of maximum volume, line-in boost settings and the option to set the mute button to the play/pause function. It also adds support for WiFi channels in Russia, the Deezer music streaming service in the U.S. and the Napster streaming service in additional regions worldwide.
