Controlpro QC-8-250 (18.5'' KNX Touch Panel incl. Visualisation)
The 18.5'' Full-HD operating panel including YOUVI Basic is optimized for use as a multimedia device. It can be used for music and video streaming as well as for displaying the house control from a central point in the KNX building. This KNX touch panel is designed for long-term and durable operation and can be used as a client (e.g. with Gira Homeserver) or as an independent server. An integrated KNX connection and the included software make it possible. With the individually adaptable glass front, every design wish is fulfilled.

KNX home control with YOUVI
Via the Controlpro control panel, YOUVI Basic can be used to perform all home control functions from a central location in the house. For example, you can switch sockets, dim lights, operate blinds or adjust the heating to suit your needs. A timer control facilitates the individual adaptation of the KNX Smart Home to the wishes and requirements of the customer. YOUVI is not only easy to use, but can also be arranged individually - simply by drag & drop. Web widgets offer an additional flexible possibility to integrate web pages directly into the visualisation.
Extend Smart Home functions flexibly
Those who want to integrate IP cameras, use Alexa voice control, or create their own routines and logics or presence simulations, can flexibly expand the functional range of YOUVI Basic with modules. Control via smartphone with the free YOUVI Smart Home App is also possible in your own home network. If you want to use the Smart Home app on the go, simply add the YOUVI Connect module.
Multimedia and Smart Home center with other KNX visualisations
The Controlpro is a full-fledged computer equipped with Windows 10 LTSC, which not only allows the use of all Windows- and web-based visualisations (e.g. Gira QuadClient, EisBär SCADA or CubeVision from BAB-Tec), but is also suitable for playing music or browser applications, for example. Depending on the visualisation used, the KNX touch panel can also be used to display SIP door intercom systems with video transmission, alarm systems and energy management. Even the upgrade to a full-fledged TV set is possible together with the network TV tuner Octopus NET, making the touch panel a real multimedia control center.
Use KNX control panel as client or server
The integrated KNX connection and the included software package YOUVI turn the Controlpro into a full-fledged smart home central. This means there is no need for external IP router hardware or an additional server. Alternatively, the KNX control panel can be used as a client with an external server, such as the Gira Homeserver with the QuadClient visualisation.
Powerful Smart Home solution for permanent operation
The use of high quality industrial components ensures a long lasting operation, even during continuous use. The construction does not have any moving parts and is therefore not only maintenance-free but also silent. Protection against breakdowns is provided by the sophisticated heat management system. This helps to ensure even heat dissipation over the entire panel front – without any streaking on the wall. The powerful hardware ensures a smooth display and effortless handling of all tasks of building control.
Individualize control panel with exchangeable glass covers
The use of high-quality materials, such as aluminum and glass, not only supports heat dissipation, but also gives the Controlpro a precious appearance. With the magnetically adhesive glass covers, the appearance of the KNX display can easily be adapted to the interior design. Depending on the design requirements, the glass can also be supplied without PEAKnx imprint or printed with your own logo.
For an individual front glass design please contact in advance email@example.com.
Mounting also possible completely flush with the wall
The Controlpro can be flush-mounted in the classic manner with the metal frame against the wall as well as mounted completely flush with the wall. For mounting flush with the wall, a separate frame, is used so that only a 5 mm shadow gap is visible around the panel glass after plastering the wall. The glass is then in one plane with the wall. The installation flush with the wall elegantly sets the scene for the KNX control center and conveys a particularly refined impression. For a visual accent, the surrounding aluminum edge can be visibly incorporated. Alternatively, it is also possible to cover the edge for a more discreet look. The Controlpro is flush-mounted as standard. It is compatible with the flush-mounted boxes of the Gira Control 19 and Gira ServerClient 15.

Windows LTSC as basis
The Controlpro is equipped with Windows LTSC. This reduces maintenance and software problems, because no Windows updates are allowed except security updates. Features provided by Windows also enable quick navigation through wiping gestures or eye-friendly operation in the darkened night mode.
Open for common visualisations
In addition to the included software YOUVI Visu, other common visualisation programs (e.g. Gira QuadClient, EisBär SCADA or CubeVision from BAB-Tec) can easily be executed on the Controlpro.
KNX software YOUVI Basic included
The software package YOUVI Basic, consisting of visualisation, bus monitor and KNX IP router, is included in the purchase of the Controlpro. For basic control tasks in the house, an external IP router or server can therefore be dispensed with. The visualisation is created automatically from the ETS project structure and is available in German, English and French. YOUVI is not only easy to use, but can also be customized – simply by drag & drop. If you want to integrate IP cameras into the visualisation, use voice control or create your own routines and logic, you can flexibly extend the functionality of YOUVI Basic with more Add-Ons.
