Brief: I want a way to protect my NFC Code Touch.
Unfortunately, there are people in the world who just have bad intentions. If you’ve ever been a victim of vandalism you’ll know that it means broken windows, painted garage doors, etc.
Regrettably, external Loxone hardware could be a target for opportunistic vandals. While products such as the Weather Station and Alarm Siren are usually out of reach, the NFC Code Touch is the perfect target – due to its elegant design.
In this Use Case, we’ll show you how to minimise the risk and effectively protect your NFC Code Touch.
Solution: Using Loxone to protect your NFC Code Touch.
To effectively be able to use the NFC Code Touch at night, the keypad has a backlight that is automatically activated once it gets dark. However, these lights could make the NFC Code Touch a very easy target for any lurking vandals or even burglars.
To reduce this risk, we can configure the backlight to only come on when a visitor approaches the entrance door – to achieve this we’ll use a Presence Sensor. This way people walking past the front of the house will never even know that the NFC Code Touch is there.

Why you and your customer should consider protecting your NFC Code Touch?
Vandalism affects all kinds of buildings – commercial and residential alike. Implementing presence-based backlighting on an NFC Code Touch can prevent it from being seen. Passer-by won’t even see it and, in the unfortunate even on an attack, this little tip might stop the NFC Code Touch being noticed.
Plus, if a building already has an external Presence Sensor (to control any exterior lighting, for example) then no additional hardware is required.
