Notifications can be used in Loxone Config for a wide range of applications. When sent, they will be displayed in the user interface or in the Loxone App.
You can specify when a notification is to be sent and what text is to be displayed.
On Android and iOS mobile devices, push notifications are also displayed outside of the Loxone app.
The Miniserver must be registered and connected to the Internet for this feature. Up to 200 push notifications can be sent per day.
|Push notifications are not available on new Huawei smartphones/tablets, as these depend on Google services, which are no longer included in Huawei devices due to the US embargo.|
