Mix & Match: the full range of Gira switches explained

Surface- or flush-mounted? Single or two-circuit switch? Pushbutton sensor or dimmer? Gira switches are designed to meet your individual requirements. Thanks to the modular structure of Gira System 55, you can combine different frames and inserts just how you see fit.

It’s all about finding a solution that matches your style – not the other way round.

What are Gira switch inserts?

Central inserts form the functional core of Gira’s switch system, which is based on a consistent square measurement of 55 x 55 millimetres. This way, you can choose a frame design and then integrate the specific functions you need.

The entire product range comprises more than 300 options, from classic lighting control to smart door communication. We’ll take a closer look at some of the most popular inserts from the Gira design lines.

Flexible top units for Gira System 3000

With intuitive operating units for lighting, heating, and blinds, Gira System 3000 makes it easy to enter the world of Smart Home technology. All functions can be controlled via Bluetooth app, switches, motion sensors, or timers. There are several top units that perform different tasks in different ways. The system also helps to minimise your energy expenditure (and thereby save costs) in the long run.

Gira System 3000 touch top unit: control your lights and blinds via tap or swipe, just like you do with your smartphone. Apart from “on” and “off”, the Gira System 3000 touch top unit allows for precise adjustments: a single swipe up or down is enough to dim the lights or reposition the blinds.

The KNX experience: smart systems for your entire home

For those who want to explore the full range of possibilities, we recommend installing a KNX system. Apart from blinds, lights, and heating, you can integrate numerous other components: door stations, smoke detectors, or kitchen appliances, for example. These networks can be expanded anytime to meet your personal needs. Gira System 55 offers a variety of switch inserts for KNX Smart Homes. Here are some examples:

Gira KNX pushbutton sensor 3: one smart switch that includes up to eight different functions for different devices. Apart from adjusting lights, blinds, and room temperatures separately, you may also create entire scenes that activate several processes at once. The Gira KNX pushbutton sensor 3 has an integrated sensor which monitors your indoor climate. It can regulate the heating in accordance with your preferred settings.

Beyond that, you can change the brightness, light colour, or even colour temperature. As part of System 55, the Gira KNX button is suitable for all installations that include classic switch elements.

Extra comfort: Gira inserts with special features

From practical night lights to USB socket outlets – making your home “smart“ doesn’t always require a fully-fledged system. Gira offers many clever solutions that can be retrofitted without much effort.

Plug & Light featured by Gira: Is it a lamp? Is it a socket outlet? In fact, it’s both.

Plug & Light featured by Gira consists of three parts: a socket, a switch frame, and a top unit. The latter is attached through an integrated magnet, which allows you to rotate the light source by 360 degrees. Depending on your interior style, you can choose between two colour variants: black matt or pure white glossy.

Gira Sensotec: you can even control your lighting without any physical touch. Contactless switches such as the Gira Sensotec are equipped with high-frequency sensors. They react to ambient movement and brightness, turning lights on or off accordingly.
