New Function Blocks

In Loxone Config 10.3 we’re introducing these new and enhanced Function Blocks:

AAL Smart Alarm

Automatic Blinds

Skylight

Skylight Shades

Alarm Sequence

Neues Feature Config 10.2 - Projekt Planung

AAL Smart Alarm

The Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Smart Alarm function block enables intelligent detection of emergency situations. If an individual is in need of help (e.g. after falling), help can be contacted quickly. In addition, a manual alarm is available, e.g. via an emergency button or other alarm logic.

Automatic Blinds

The Automatic Blinds Function Block has been enhanced to include the Id input for door contacts! So, when an external door is opened, then blinds will completely raise and the block will be locked to avoid automatic shading for that specific blind. Operation via the app remains unlocked.

Skylight

The all-new Skylight Function Block allows for intuitive automation and control of electrically controlled roof windows. With the help of this new Function Block, your customers will be able to operate their skylight / roof windows conveniently within the Loxone App.

Skylight Shades 

In addition to being able to control motorised skylights, your customers will now also be able to benefit from the automation and control of associated motorised skylight shades or blinds. The new Skylight Shades Function Block works as part of Automatic Shading logic, while taking into account the inclination (I).

Alarm Sequence

The new Alarm Sequence Function Block allows for a chain of notifications to be implemented with ease for our Partners. When an alarm is triggered, this Function Block can initiate the systematic notifying of up to 10 people via phone call, email, or push-notification. Plus, this new feature also allows for text elements to be transferred, so the person on the other end of the phone will be informed of exactly which sensor has been triggered.

Note: the Caller Service is required for the Loxone Miniserver to place phone calls.

A Bold New Look

The Loxone app boasts a new, dark appearance. The dark design not only looks particularly classy, ​​it makes the operation, especially in dark environments, much easier on the eyes.

New User Management

• Activate & Deactivate Users
• Add & Change Passwords
• Assign User Groups

This saves a lot of time when commissioning Air devices. The Loxone Touch Nightlight Airl, for example, can be put into operation in just a few moments.
