"EiPlan-outside" can be used independently of the ETS for planning KNX projects. It is simply installed under Windows 10 and is 100% compatible with the ETS app version EiPlan5.

Graphic printouts of floor plans, distribution plans and circuit diagrams significantly improve the overview and can be printed directly with EiPlan-outside.
