ALS patient Bernard Muller

Nomination for KNX People’s Choice Award

Thinka is proud to be nominated for the KNX People's Choice Award  

Voice Control for people with disabilities

Top entrepreneur and ALS patient Bernard Muller uses Thinka to control his home. Thinka connects Apple's voice assistant Siri to KNX. Bernard is now able to move around his house again without the need for help from other people. His whole home can be controlled via voice, from curtains up to his in-house elevator! This gives him mental and physical freedom.

This case is nominated for the prestigious KNX People’s Choice Award.

Please help us promote this case by voting for Bernard and Siri for KNX.

Three good reasons to do so:

  • Voice control is a great innovation for all physically challenged people
  • When winning we will donate the price money to the ALS project MinE
  • Win one of the two Thinka's for Siri (share your vote on Facebook or Twitter to qualify)


  • Go to: and 'register' at the top left section. This is to make sure you can vote only once.
  • Click 'KNX helps ALS patient live at home less dependant' directly or click on 'CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT' and scroll down to find our case and press the vote button.
  • Share your vote on Facebook or Twitter.

Thank you for your help!
