Lithe Audio announces KNX integration for Pro Series Active ceiling speakers

Lithe Audio’s easy-to-install Pro Series speakers can now be fully integrated as part of a KNX smart home system, enabling KNX installers to retrofit high-quality, feature-rich architectural speakers into homes.

Delivering high-quality audio coupled with a rich feature set, the Lithe Audio Pro Series speaker is a high-spec wireless installation model. It’s rich feature set includes a fully integrated built-in 60W RMS class D amplifier, advanced WiSA technology for Dolby Atmos systems and PoE power delivery for convenience of installation and control.

Thank to its upgraded firmware for KNX, it also includes on-board memory alarms, chimes and tones as well as doorbell and intruder alert sounds. Once integrated with the KNX system, users can also control the speaker functions such as play/pause as well as stream from multiple sources including radio, podcasts, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon Music and more. Connecting KNX with Lithe Audio’s speaker allows multiroom playback in up to five different zones.

The Pro Series speakers use a BAB TECHNOLOGIE APP MODULE and the corresponding smart home app ‘Lithe KNX Connect’ to wirelessly, or through ethernet connectivity via a router, allow for full programmability and integration to KNX.

“We’re delighted to be bringing our highly rated multiroom Pro ceiling speaker solution to the innovative KNX open ecosystem,” said Amit Ravat, managing director at Lithe Audio. “With our Pro Speakers we wanted to add that versatility that other speaker products were unable to deliver on, namely simple install and great features in a single all-in-one unit, to easily deliver awesome sound in bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms.

“We believe that our speaker solution will bring a new dimension to the KNX community,” he continued. “And without the need for racks or running additional cabling, just simply connecting from the lighting circuit with the BAB Tech hub, it couldn’t be easier for installers to deliver this exciting new smart home audio experience.”

To give an aesthetically-pleasing appearance, Lithe Audio’s frameless speakers are designed to ‘disappear’ into the ceiling, only protruding 3mm, to fit into any interior. The magnetic grille covers can be removed easily for cleaning or for replacement with a different coloured finish, and can be painted to match the ceiling to make it almost invisible.
