Setup in Loxone Config
To put the Remote Air in learn mode there are 2 different processes depending on whether this is the first pairing or not. Once in the learn mode the status LED will flash red-green-yellow.
The Remote Air will be in the learn mode after the battery has been inserted. The Remote Air will remain in the learn mode until either the Remote Air has been successfully paired, or if 10 minutes have passed without connecting to the Miniserver.
If you need to learn the Remote Air again, for example with another Air Base. The learning mode can be started manually easily. To do this remove the battery and press a few buttons to discharge the unit. Now put the battery back in and within 10 seconds press any button for at least 5 seconds, this will put the Remote Air back in the learn mode.
In order to learn in the Remote 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 'Monitor'.
Next, in the monitor below click on the Learn tab and then click the "Start search" button. Now you will see all the Air devices that are in the learning mode below.
Now click on the Remote Air signal and enter a name for it and then click 'Create device'. The Remote Air can now be seen in the periphery tree underneath the Air Base Extension.
The following inputs are available:
- 5 digital inputs: One for each button.
- 1 analog input: Battery life from 0% to 100%.
- Low battery alarm: If the battery level is below 15% this input will be on.
If a device has been replaced you need to update the serial number. You can easily do that in the Air Monitor in Loxone Config.
- mount the new device and activate the power supply or insert the battery
- search for air devices in learn-mode (as shown in the "getting started" section)
- highlight the new device and choose the device you would like to replace in the drop-down menu
Finally press "Replace Device" and save your program in the Miniserver. The device has now been replaced.
The buttons can be used in Loxone Config as digital inputs to trigger various things in the Loxone Smart Home. Every button is a separate digital input.
A LED is located on the top left of the remote and shines through the plastic case. When in learn mode this LED will flash red-green-yellow alternately.
The LED only flashes during the learning sequence, afterwards it's always off.
The Air devices will run their update automatically in the background, and they will function throughout the update.
If the Air devices are updating when the Miniserver and the Air Base Extension are rebooted then the Air devices will restart the update from the beginning after the reboot.
The update can take up to an hour so do be aware of this! You can check the version of the devices by looking in Device status. Click on the Miniserver tab and then click the Device status button once.
