To use the Loxone Mailer service you must register your Minisever through your online account.

SETUP THE LOXONE MAILER SERVICE

The Miniserver does not support SSL-Encrypted mail servers, so if you do not have access to a mail server with PLAIN authentication use the Loxone Mailer Service to send emails.

STEP 1: ADD THE LOXONE MAILER SERVICE

In Loxone Configuration click on Messages in the periphery tree window. You will now see the mailer options listed in the Context tab bar at the top. Click on Loxone Mailer Service. This will now add the mailer into the periphery tree underneath Messages.

STEP 2: ENTER DETAILS

Click on the Loxone Mailer Service in the periphery tree window and in the properties edit the name of the mailer, fill in the recipient email address and type in a subject for the email that is sent. You can also use the mailer to send you emails for system changes with the Miniserver.

STEP 3: ENTER A BODY TO THE EMAIL

Now drag the Loxone Mailer Service on to a page in the program. In the properties you will now see boxes under the section Logger/Mail/Call/Track to enter text for the body of the email. Message when ON/analogue changes will be the message that is sent when the mailer is activated. Message when OFF is the message that is sent when the mailer state then goes to off. You can also set the minimum time interval for emails to be sent.

STEP 4: TRIGGER THE EMAIL

Now you need to link the output of the mailer to something that will trigger the email being sent.

For example you could use the mailer to alert you about leaving a window open:

SYSTEM NOTIFICATIONS

You can setup a mailer to send a certain email address system notifications for when maintenance related issues have occurred. A common example of one is; a message sent to the installer when batteries are running low on Air devices. In order to setup a system notification, it is a similar process to a mailer but with 1 extra step. This is on top of the push notification that is a pre-defined item.

 

STEP 1: SETUP THE MAILER

Following the steps above, ensure that you have setup a mailer for the email address you want system notifications to go to.

STEP 2: ENABLING IT FOR SYSTEM NOTIFICATIONS

Once the mailer has been setup, simply ensure that the “Use for system notifications” box has been ticked.
