The new Loxone Config & App 15 further improves the most powerful software for home and building automation. Find out all about the new features in the areas of energy, audio, lighting, access and more in this blog.

Learn all about the new Config & App 15 in this video:

Wallbox Config

01 Improved Wallbox Function Block

Using the energy surplus from a photovoltaic system intelligently, realising individual charging modes, avoiding load peaks and much more is all made possible by the Wallbox function block – and it has now been given new price inputs.

Up to 5 different charging modes can be created with different prices per kW as well as a separate kilowatt price for a manual charging mode with individual charging power, which can be set via the Loxone App.

Wallbox Manager Config

02 Improved Wallbox Manager

If several Wallboxes are used in a network, buildings and cables require special protection against overloading. The Wallbox Manager module was developed for this purpose, it limits the loads, intelligently distributes the energy (and surplus) to several wallboxes and can be used to realise different charging modes.

With Config 15, the Wallbox Manager function block has been further improved by distributing the energy from Wallboxes that are connected but not actively charging to those Wallboxes that are actively charging.

Energieflussmonitor Loxone App

03 Improved Energy Flow Monitor

The Energy Flow Monitor combines consumers, generators, storage and the grid, in a clearly organised way – making energy flows more easily visible. With the new update, the Energy Flow Monitor also becomes part of the Automatic Designer in the App. With conditions for grid electricity, self-generated electricity and much more now supported. This means that customised logic can be programmed via the App and the Automatic Designer using the Energy Flow Monitor.

The Energy Flow Monitor has also become part of Auto Config, making it even easier for trained Loxone Partners to implement and use in Loxone home and building automation installations. An Energy Flow Monitor is now created via the Auto Config, meters and Power Supply & Backup are added to it and set accordingly.

Audio History Loxone App

04 Audio

The history in the Loxone App is an important tool for an even better understanding of processes in a building. For example, why is the shade moving or why is the light on? Were the processes triggered by logic or manually by a user?

This history is now also available for the audio player with Config & App 15.

05 New: Soundsuit Integration

With Config & App 15, the Soundsuit streaming service was implemented, which enables music to be streamed legally in commercial areas such as cafés, restaurants, hotels, shops and much more. Soundsuit also offers the great advantage that the music can be customised precisely to the target group. Soundsuit can also be used to easily manage multiple locations or branches from a single point. 

06 New: Exosphere

Exosphere is an innovative cloud application specifically designed for Loxone Partners and Facility Managers with multiple installations, of any scale, and with any number of locations. It is the central point for visualising and controlling all of your Miniservers, enabling unprecedented efficiency in terms of management, monitoring and maintenance. All information about Exosphere can be found in the respective blog. 


07 New: DALI2 for the DALI Extension

Our DALI extensions are now also certified for DALI 2, which has been implemented on the software side with Config 15. This means that DALI2 sensors such as presence detectors or similar can now also be integrated. Delivery of the DALI2-certified DALI Extensions will start shortly.

08 New: Deactivation of the password reset

The deactivation of the password reset, which prevents the admin password from being reset, ensures even more security in your projects. The password can then no longer be reset if the SD card of the Miniserver is removed, connected to the PC and reset via the Loxone Config.

NFC Block Config

09 New: Authorisation parameters for NFC

With Loxone, you can realise secure and straightforward access, and its management, to your building – which is now even more flexible with Config 15. With the NFC Code Touch, access can be granted either via NFC or a code – or both via two-factor authentication. In the future, you will also be able to activate this as a parameter via a separate input on the NFC module, for example for different operating times.

Practical example: In an office, simple authentication is sufficient during operating hours; outside these hours, two-factor authentication is required. This can be easily realised by combining the NFC function block with the Timer Switch function block.

As always, you can find an overview of all changes in the changelog.
