smart home installation. Our Tree technology makes integration
fast and easy.
The update of Tree devices is performed automatically in the background. The device will still function while this update takes place. If miniserver is restarted during the update process the update will need to start again when power is restored.
This may take up to an hour.
The device version can be checked in the ‘device status’ window. If the version number is highlighted green then the device is up to date.
With Loxone Tree there are many wiring topologies that can be used.
The cable required is Cat7 Cable.
A Maximum of 50 devices can be connected on each tree branch.
The maximum length of cable is 500m per branch.
ADDING TREE DEVICES
To add Tree devices, you first need to wire them up and have the devices connected back to one of the Loxone Tree Extension Branches.
The LED on the Tree device will flash orange when the wiring is all correct. If the device does not flash orange check the wiring of the devices.
Click the branch you wish to add the device to in the periphery tree within Config, you will see the top ribbon bar change to show Tree related setups.
The search will begin in the bottom monitor bar, which will appear automatically when you click ‘Tree Device Search’.
Now select the specific device, enter a name and click “Create device”.
In the periphery tree the device will now be listed.The analogue output for the position of valve is now available under the device in the periphery tree.
If a device needs to be replaced, this can be done via the Tree search window in Loxone Config.
- Install new device and activate power supply
- Search for new device and select the drop-down menu, select the device to be replaced
- Click ‘Replace device’ button
To commit, chances must be saved into the Miniserver.
The LED states of each Tree device can be used for diagnostics:
- Orange blinking: device is connected to Tree extension but has not yet been taught in to extension.
- Red flashing: no connection to the Miniserver (check wiring of this Tree branch)
Using the ‘Diagnose’ button we can check both branches of the Tree extension. This can give us help identify wiring problems and help us quickly solve problems.
The diagnostics window will list all connected devices.
The state of each device is signified by the colour the devices is highlighted in the list.
