It’s a phrase we’ve heard time and time again – “Which button do I press for…?” From boardrooms to bedrooms across the UK, walls are being cluttered up with endless switches – one for the lights, one for the blinds, one for the music… the list goes on.

It’s a phrase we’ve heard time and time again – “Which button do I press for…?” From boardrooms to bedrooms across the US, walls are being cluttered up with endless switches – one for the lights, one for the blinds, one for the music… the list goes on.

Here at Loxone, we’re on a bit of a mission to rid the world of ugly, unnecessary wall clutter. (We’re talking about switches here, rather than questionable posters of boy bands and the like). If you follow us on Twitter, you may have seen our cheeky stickers adorning the cramped, poorly marked and just downright confusing control set ups of conference venues and ‘dumb’ homes across the UK. (If you’d like a few stickers of your own, please get in touch or swing by our offices to pick up a few).

We think that a Smart Home should make life easier – why not just have one switch that you can tailor to suit your individual needs? One that’s so simple and intuitive to use, anyone can get the hang of it – even elderly relatives and guests staying in your home.

With that in mind, we set about developing a capacitive switch that not only looks good, but is family friendly too, and we’re very proud to announce that our new Loxone Touch Air is now available!

The Highlights

Five Touch Points

The design for the Loxone Touch Air is based on our ‘one switch’ concept: Instead of overwhelming your wall (and your guests) with dedicated switches for lighting, music and blinds, you can instead combine everything into one switch that’s simple to use.

Integrated Temperature & Humidity Sensor

With the Loxone Touch Air you can ensure that your home is always at the right temperature. The in-built temperature and humidity sensor will monitor conditions within your home, and if it gets too hot and stuffy for example, your home will respond automatically.

Click Feedback

A common issue with touch switches is that often you can’t be sure if you’ve really pressed them as there’s no feedback. The Loxone Touch Air has an optional audible click feedback function, reassuring you that your touch was registered.

Convenient

Thanks to Loxone Air wireless technology, you can install your Loxone Touch Air switch wherever you like around your home – if you’re constantly climbing out of bed to turn off the light or leaning perilously over the edge of the sofa when the film starts, you’ll know what we mean here. The light switches in my own 1930’s semi are located behind the doors (seriously!), meaning I have to reach around the door to turn the lights on and off every time I go into a room. Thanks to these new Loxone Touch switches, their days are numbered…

Thanks to Loxone Air wireless technology, you can install your Loxone Touch Air wherever you’d like around your home. Imagine not having to constantly climb out of bed to turn off the light or walk across the room to turn on the alarm for your house. Simply place the Loxone Touch Air conveniently near you for easy accessibility and have control at your fingertips, where you want it most.

The Loxone Touch Air goes a step further in terms of convenience, though. Consider the following scenario: You’re listening to music in the kitchen when the phone rings. A single tap on the lower right hand touch point of the switch will lower the volume, whilst a double tap will switch the music off completely, leaving you (or your other half) to chat in peace.

The Loxone Touch Air allows your Smart Home to take convenience a step further by making outdated switches and push buttons a thing of the past.

The Loxone Touch Air is now available in our webshop for just £87.00 (including 20% VAT).
