The world's first KNX connection (plug-in) for networking products from the Axis Communications company.

Combine the world of building automation (KNX) with the security technology of the Axis Communications company. Utilise the strengths of both worlds and integrate network cameras, door stations and network loudspeakers into the KNX – with no additional hardware! Simply plug our plug-in into the Axis IP product, configure it and Bob's your uncle!

Reliable motion detection via KNX

Who needs umpteen camera recordings of trees moving in the wind or moths flitting around the light?
In future, use your KNX motion detector to start recordings and record only those things which are important.

Reliable motion detection via KNX

Enjoy your private sphere

If you'd like to enjoy the garden, deactivate motion detection and/or activate the private zone masks of your surveillance camera, e.g. with a KNX door contact on your terrace door. Bothersome switching off of the PoE power supply is no longer necessary.

Enjoy your private sphere

The camera produces the deterrent

If unauthorised persons tamper with your house, the camera registers this movement and not only starts recording, but also switches on the lighting and television via KNX and begins playing announcements (dog barking, voices etc.), e.g. using the Sonos sound system. There are no limits to your imagination. Discover deterrents on a whole new level.

Outwitting made difficult

Someone sabotages your camera by covering it or spraying it with paint. As soon as this happens, an alarm is triggered and you are notified. This enables you to actively intervene in the event as it unfolds, not after the saboteur has finished the job.

Outwitting made difficult

Door station with KNX

Don't just integrate network-only cameras into the KNX – include your door stations from Axis Communications as well. Use the call button to play a ring tone using the KNX and Sonos sound system, for example.

Loudspeaker with KNX

Your loudspeakers from Axis Communications can be integrated into your KNX system as well, thus enabling the control of loudspeaker playback in your shop over KNX, for example.

Loudspeaker with KNX


  • Perfect integration of Axis network devices into application scenarios

  • Stronger combination of both systems. Motion detector (KNX) starts the action or Cross Line Detection (camera) switches on the light

  • Private sphere (masking) can be controlled via KNX, for instance, through presence and absence

  • Camera responds directly to KNX/IP after successful installation

  • Third-party applications on the camera can also communicate with KNX

  • In addition to network cameras, all Axis network devices with ACAP are also supported

Communication + Installation

The "ISE SMART APP KNX AXIS" plug-in is installed directly on a network device (e.g. network camera) based on an Axis ACAP (AXIS Camera Application Platform). After successful installation, the Axis network device is a KNX/IP device and communicates with the world of KNX via KNX/IP routing. The plug-in is configured on the network device (event system) and in the ETS. KNX installations are usually implemented with two wires (TP), meaning that a  KNX/IP router has to be present in this installation (often already present in KNX visualisation systems) to enable communication between KNX/IP and KNX/TP.



  • Support of Axis network cameras

  • Support of Axis WLAN cameras*

  • Support of Axis D2050 -VE Network Radar Detector

  • Support of Axis door stations

  • Support of Axis network loudspeakers

  • 30 communication objects for sending from KNX to the Axis camera (1 bit)

  • 30 communication objects for sending from
    the Axis camera to KNX (variable bit length)

  • Control of actions on the camera
  • Triggering of image, video and/or camera message sending

  • With PTZ cameras, predefined positions can be focused on

  • Camera settings (properties) can be read out and sent to the KNX

  • Sending of a message to the KNX with access to the camera's live stream

  • Monitoring of the camera itself, e.g. for overheating or breaking of the connection to the saving location for videos

  • Third-party applications can send values to the KNX

  • Simple integration into KNX (can be completely configured via ETS and the camera’s event system)


*Only in combination with other system components that support reliable communication, e.g. Gira KNX/IP Router.
