Home Connect & Loxone: Truly smart appliance integration

Smart household appliances with Home Connect from Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau and NEFF can now be seamlessly integrated into your Loxone building automation system. This ensures even better energy use, more convenience and more security.

With the new Home Connect integration, modern energy management and intelligent automation can be commissioned easily and quickly with the know-how of a Loxone installer. Here are three practical use-case examples:

Three smart examples of Home Connect integration with Loxone

Energy management: Delayed start of Home Connect devices

Start your dishwasher or tumble dryer as soon as the PV system is producing enough electricity. This increases solar self-consumption, reduces energy costs and protects the environment.

Safety: Leave the house without a worry

When leaving home, a triple tap on a Loxone Touch switch by the front door will activate the ‘Leaving Home’ mode. This automatically arms the burglar alarm, resets any heating overrides, checks to see if any windows or doors are open and more. It can also specifically switch off Home Connect household appliances such as the oven to ensure it’s not accidentally left on when no one is in – allowing people to leave with the reassurance that everything has been turned off.

Maximum comfort: a cleaner way of doing things

The “Leave home” function not only deactivates the Home Connect-enabled cooker, but it can also give the go-ahead for the Home Connect-enabled Robot Vacuum Cleaner to set off on dust patrol so that the floor is spick and span for when you come home again.
