To add a Motion Sensor Air to your configuration, you first need to put it into Learn mode.
Learn mode is activated by pressing and holding the button on the rear for 5 seconds.
Once in learn mode, the status LED will flash Red - Green - Amber repeatedly. 
In order to learn in the Smoke Detector Air with your Loxone Smart Home you need to activate the Air Monitor. Click on the Air Base extension in the periphery window and then in the context bar at the top check the tick box 'Air Monitor'.
Next, press the "Start Search" button in the Air monitor. All Air devices that are in Learn mode will be displayed. 
Now select the device, enter a description and press the "Create Device" button.


The device will now appear in the periphery tree.

The following Inputs are available for use:

  • Analogue Input Battery Level: Displays the battery level on a scale of 0-100%
  • Analogue Input Brightness: Current brightness in Lux
  • Digital Input Battery Low: This Input is ON when battery level is below 15%
  • Digital Input Motion Detected: Input is ON whilst there is motion detected


You can change some of the properties of the motion sensor, such as sensitivity and the update period of motion and Lux.
If the lux reading changes suddenly by more than 10%, then this value is updated immediately.
