Version 9 – Highlights At A Glance

Your home in your hands – Loxone Smart Home App V9

Even though your Loxone Smart Home takes care of thousands of tasks, you can always take control with a switch or the app. And with the release of version 9, we’ve been sure to make it the most powerful home automation app yet.

Loxone Smart Home App

The Perfect User Experience: Brand New App Design

Our new app gives you unprecedented aesthetics in the palm of your hand – The refreshed design is more intuitive and streamlined with a more sophisticated look. Whilst you don’t need to reach for an app to benefit from living in a Loxone Smart Home, control is at your fingertips in the form of this elegant, user-friendly app. In short: no gimmicks, real smart homes.

My app, just as I like it

Now, you can quickly and easily personalise your app to further alter basic preferences without having to consult your Loxone Partner. Favourites, names and even icons for both rooms and categories can all be adjusted in the app so you can customise your smart home to suit you.

Personalisation – Overview of central functions

Our homes are a reflection of who we are, and we believe a smart home shouldn’t be any different. With V9, you can easily view the functions, rooms and categories that are most important to you. These personalised tiles have all your rooms in one place – so you can see, at a glance, whether functions such as music, shading, or lighting, for example, are active, with the option to make quick changes to them with the press of a finger.

Set The ‘Mood’ – 2nd Generation Lighting Control

We have redesigned the concept of lighting your smart home – in some respects reinvented. In addition to the renaming lighting “scenes” “moods”, we have made it even simpler for you to create the perfect atmosphere at the touch of a button. What’s more, you can now experience a gentle awakening through the gradual introduction of light, as opposed to waking up to the ‘everyday’ mood as soon as the alarm goes off.

Show Your True Colours

Changing the colours of your own four walls has never been simpler, no paint or rollers required. With version 9 of our software, you can quickly and easily set your lights to change colour automatically. Simply choose your colours and the order you’d like them to appear, and watch your home transform! You can also define and adapt your lighting moods at any time by searching for “mood” within the app.

After a busy day, you’ve settled into the sofa with your book, cup of tea in hand. All that’s missing is a dog at your feet. Well, that and just the right lighting mood. You press and hold your ‘reading switch’ by the sofa which brings the reading lamp to life and activates your LED strip to gently glow in hues of orange and red, creating a relaxed and cosy feel that’s ideal for a little literary indulgence.

One switch – more options

Take advantage of additional functionality without having to add more switches to your wall, including the possibility to mix lighting moods.

NEW:

  • Define the default mood per switch (the first mood to scroll from)
  • Long-press on a switch to mix in the default mood

Mixing: Combine Lighting Moods

The second generation of our lighting controller makes it possible to mix in lighting moods without having to completely change the atmosphere of a room.

For example, where you may have a kitchen-diner, these may make up two different areas of light, but in the same room. Therefore, if you wanted to quickly turn your kitchen LED strips on whilst the rest of the family are at the dining table, it’s now possible to mix in the ‘cooking’ mood so that both are active; just by pressing and holding your Loxone switch.

Of course, these lighting moods can also be used with motion sensors – for even more individual automation of your Loxone Smart Home.

Loxone OS, Config & App 9 – A ‘Real’ Smart Home:

Our core idea: Save 50,000 tasks. Enjoy more time for life.

Your Loxone Smart Home welcomes you with feel-good lighting and temperature, protects you around the clock from fire, water and burglary, as well as adjusting your shading automatically according to the direction of the sun; it completely looks after itself so you don’t have to.

With every new product or software release, we remind ourselves of this core idea. The release of the ninth version of Loxone OS is no exception. This concept of intelligent living once again lends itself to improving the way that Loxone looks after you and your family.

The result: Even faster and simpler setup of your Loxone Smart Home, cutting costs as well as complexity. Experience the feeling of a truly ‘smart’ home, where our standards, recommendations, and bespoke product range provide a totally seamless solution.
