What can Basalte Lisa do as a mini touch screen?
At your request – a survey in the community – we showed the Basalte Lisa even before it was available on the market (approx. end of January 2022). We briefly tested one of the first final examples of the Belgian manufacturer’s mini touchscreen. Since the woman very often makes the final purchase decision when furnishing a house, which KNX button is used and which is not, Basalte could have chosen the name “Lisa” on purpose.
To get straight to the point: the use of the Basalte Lisa as a mini touchscreen requires the presence of Basalte Home in conjunction with a KNX system. This means that a Basalte server in the form of the Basalte Core Plus or the Core Mini Server should be purchased or already be available.
And what Basalte Lisa does not need for setup: No changes need to be made to the KNX ETS5/6 data set. The touch screen is only connected via POE network cable and installed in a standard EU socket (60 mm or 68 mm cavity wall socket). Complete! All setup is done via software through Basalte Studio, which is not freely available.
What features does Basalte Lisa offer?
- Room control for switching all trades/devices in a room
- Music and multi-room audio control, calling up music tracks and streaming services (Deezer, Spotify, Vidal), multi-client capability and parental controls
- Calling various outdoor cameras for security and surveillance
- Door communication (video and sound) – compatible with well-known systems such as Doorbird, 2N, Gira, Siedle etc.
- internal communication for example “call for dinner” or “guests are there” between several Basalte Lisa or Basalte Ellie in the house
- Door opening via touchscreen and operation of motorized locks
if desired, only fades in when approaching, integrated proximity sensor
How is Basalte Lisa installed on the wall?
Die Basalte Lisa lässt sich sowohl in einer Beton- als auch in einer Trockenbau-Wand installieren. Die von uns empfohlene Montagehöhe beträgt 1,40 m bis 1,55 m. Der Einbau erfolgt in einer herkömmlichen Betoneinbaudose (Kaiser, Durchmesser 60 mm) oder Hohlwanddose (Durchmesser 68 mm). Mittlerweile kommt die Basalte Lisa in einer ganzen Reihe von Einfamilienhäusern zum Einsatz und überzeugt mit ihrer sehr guten KNX Visualisierung.
How much does Basalte Lisa - the 12 different versions cost?
Since February 2022, Basalte Lisa has been available in the 12 metal-material combinations and colors/surfaces customary at Basalte. The prices start at just under 1400 euros and in the noblest variants (Fer Forge Gunmetal) it costs almost 1800 euros. The Lisa has so far been spared the regular “price updates” carried out by Basalte.
What all Basalte Lisa have in common is the absolutely perfect workmanship with very low fitting tolerances and real metal equipment. For a “normal” house, the equipment with two to three Basalte Lisa should be absolutely sufficient. Door communication, music player and chic visualization included.
Enhancements through updates to Basalte Home
The small touchscreen will receive additional functionality in the coming weeks and months simply through software updates from Basalte Home (as of May 2023). This post will be updated regularly.
