The Presence block combines devices and logic that indicate presence in a room. Loxone sensors such as Touch devices, Door and Window Contacts, and Motion and Presence Sensors are supported.
The desired devices for presence detection can be assigned in the block settings. Additional sensors or logic can be connected via the block inputs.
Every button click on a Loxone Touch activates or extends the presence, as well as detected motion and every change of state of window contacts.
The block also supports the presence detection via the Loxone App.
Presence overrun times are synchronized for supported devices. After the last presence, the presence output for Presence Sensors remains ON for the duration TH.
Bei Geräten mit Präsenz- und Bewegungssensoren werden beide Sensortypen vom Baustein verwendet. Ein hoher Wert bei "Nachlaufzeit Bewegung" verlängert die Präsenz-Dauer des Bausteins entsprechend

|Tr||Trigger||Each change at the input activates or extends the presence. Continuous ON is not interpreted.|

Combined presence output↑
The combined presence output is similar to the T5 and contains a range of information in the form of a bitmask:
Bit 0: Presence active
Bit 1: Motion active
Bit 2: Switch-off warning
Example for analog values:
0: no presence
1: Presence active
2: Motion active
3: Presence + Motion
5: Presence + switch-off warning
This output can be used on all presence and motion sensor inputs of other blocks
Presence Detection via the Desktop App↑
On a computer running Windows, macOS, or Linux, the Loxone App enables presence detection.
When you work on your computer, the app detects your presence and transmits it to the block.
To activate the presence detection, first create a Presence block for a room in Loxone Config and save the program in the Miniserver.
Then enable Presence Detection in the App's settings menu.
Here you can select which room is to be used for presence detection:
Selects the room in which the computer is located.
Each room that is to be used with this function requires a Presence block.$BR$$This allows you to change the room being used, e.g. if a notebook is used in different rooms.
You can find and change the room being used by clicking on the App icon in the taskbar or menu bar of your computer:
