What do the readers think about the Guide?
This guide is a stunning idea! This is the item that was missing for the market - a book valuable both for installation specialists as well as for interested investors. Such a "nutshell market overview" means great savings of valuable time. If I were to choose one guide, then this would be the name most interesting to me. Despite it being partly a collection of information freely available on manufacturer websites, then I'd probably lose around 50 hours just gathering them - a week's work. Or I wouldn't have the time for it at all, or the 'off time' would cost me much more than this guide... Even though I personally feel, that it would take me much more time, but let's get back on topic... Such knowledge is needed even if it's sometimes underestimated - I like to be up to date with news from the industry. Even comparing, on the other hand, the cost of a "visit" to an industry fair to get to know the market offer and news? Only in my country the cost would be comparable or higher, not mentioning a trade fair in a foreign country, where I would be only able to see and get to know a part of the equipment included in the guide anyway.
My sincere recommendation! Lukas
An interesting and well-written guide, allowing one to quickly get acquainted with news and devices used in building automation. I personally found the current prices indicated for each product particularly useful, very important during offer preparation. Rules of selection of KNX devices were described clearly and simply, allowing one to quickly gather the required numbers for every system. Very useful - especially for industry practitioners - were the connection diagrams, provided for almost every product, which dispel all doubts concerning connections with junction cabinets. If you plan to work with intelligent systems, you should definitely get this notebook.

It took me a day to read this guide, and I must say that it is written better than many dissertations, because it doesn't use a plethora of unintellible terms, and yet perfectly shows and presents topics, which many people in this country would like to sound quite complicated. What I enjoyed most at first glance was equal treatment of all manufacturers through display of their logos right at the beginning of the guide. This allows one to get to know them better, and to indicate to readers that there are still other companies apart from the big market players. Personally, the final chapters of the guide was what I found most useful, particularly the pages concerning integration of KNX with other systems. I hope that the author, Mr Szepietowski, delivers soon a guide describing in greater detail integration with other systems. I give the guide an overall very high note, recommending it both to beginner as well as advanced installation specialists.
