Setup in Loxone Config

To put the Smoke Detector Air in learn mode there are 2 different processes depending on whether this is the first pairing or not.

First pairing:

The Smoke Detector Air will be in the learn mode after the battery has been inserted. It will remain in the learn mode until either the Smoke Detector Air has been successfully paired, or if 10 minutes have passed.


If you need to learn the Smoke Detector Air again, for example with another Air Base, the learning mode can be started manually easily. To do this press the  learn button for 5 seconds, this will put the detector back in the learn mode.

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 '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 Smoke Detector Air signal and enter a name for it and then click 'Create device'. The Smoke Detector Air can now be seen in the periphery tree underneath the Air Base Extension.

The following inputs are available:

  • 1 digital inputs: Alarm (is on if alarm active).
  • 1 analog input: Battery life from 0% to 100%.
  • Low battery alarm: If the battery level is below 15% this input will be on.

For reasons of energy efficiency, there is no permanent connection between Miniserver and Smoke Detector Air. Therefore the alarm signal is triggered only by the Smoke Detector Air itself.

replace device

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.

Functionality test

Visual inspection:

  • Check the flue inlet openings for coarse dirt, and the detector for signs of mechanical damage.

Functionality test by pressing the test button:

  • (Successful functionality test) if you hear a beep - the detector works correctly!
  • No beep - the detector is not functional.

Silence alarm

In case of accidental triggering, the alarm can be silenced by pressing the test button. After 10 minutes the detector will return to normal operation.


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.
