This App will automatically create a snapshot of your ETS project (as knxproj) in a specified, project-specific location.
This is useful if you are working with several projects and want to
- include versions of the projects in a backup solution
- synchronize the versions with a cloud service (e.g. Dropbox®)
- deploy the project to a location accessible by other persons or tools
ETS5 has a similar facility named "recovery points". In contrast to the AutoBackup App, recovery points are not stored in project-specific folders and thus do not provide client isolation.
This ETS App is intended to exchange Group Address information of Busch-ComfortTouch® panels from Busch-Jaeger or ABB between ETS and IPP. The ETS App provides IPP data with recent changes in ETS and vice versa ETS data in IPP. By pressing the import button you can import XML files that were created by IPP into ETS. Using the export button you can generate an XML file for import into IPP.
For full system visualisation, telegrams shall be allowed to pass the line coupler. To this end, a dummy device is inserted in the ETS project. It contains all the Group Addresses required by the visualisation system. The ETS takes the Group Addresses from the dummy device into account when creating the filter tables.
Fill VisualizationDummy helps you to link a dummy device in the ETS with a list of Group Addresses for a visualization.
Product data for dummy devices can be obtained from several manufacturers.
The information about the group addresses can be read either from a file (different formats are supported), or the group addresses can be selected from the current ETS4 project by drag and drop.
GAMMA Converter App is used to exchange applications of Siemens products automatically.
It expands the basic functionality of the GAMMA Converter Tools with the feature, to exchange the application within the ETS automatically.
Therefore the App uses for converting the data the KNX Converter Libary of Siemens, which can be downloaded for free.
The exchange of applications is possible in case of a single product or from more products to one product.

To import the configuration of a KNX project into a management application like an OPC server, the ETS offers an export function called "Export OPC". This export functionality provides only basic information about the KNX installation. The NETx BMS App is a user-friendly way to import the whole KNX project and its meta-information into the NETx BMS Server or the NETx KNX OPC Server. The output of this ETS App is an enhanced export file that contains the used KNX Group Addresses, the deployed KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces, and the full ETS project structure including the network topology (areas, lines, devices, and Group Objects) as well as the building and trade view. In addition, the App detects the configured IP addresses of the KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces. Based on the topology of the KNX project, the App automatically assigns the KNX Group Addresses to the routers and interfaces that are later on used for accessing them. Thus, a manual, time-consuming and error-prone assignment of the KNX Group Addresses to the KNXnet/IP routers and interfaces is not necessary anymore. Using the NETx BMS App, the whole KNX project including the well-known ETS view can be imported into the NETx BMS Server or NETx KNX OPC Server in a fast and intuitive way.
