Our hardware chaps have been busy squirrelling away and have come up with yet another new product, this time an extension – the all-new Modbus Extension

If you use counters or meters in your Smart Home then you may be familiar with the serial communications protocol technology of Modbus. Be it in a domestic or commercial environment, the Modbus interface can often be found wherever there are meters, controllers, i/o modules, converters or networks devices.

And now, with this new extension, they can be incorporated into your Loxone Home Automation system!

The new Modbus Extension is currently only compatible with the beta version of our free Loxone Config software. But it won’t be long until we roll it out properly, making it available for all users of the regular Loxone Config.

If you’re itching to start seeing how Modbus tech can work alongside your Miniserver though, you can sign up to become a beta tester and put this new extension through its paces at a specially-discounted rate. Just head to our login section, sign up and claim your 20% discount now!

KEY FEATURES

READING – RECORDING – REACTING

With the Modbus Extension connected to the Modbus devices in your Smart Home, you can not only check meter readings, you can also record and analyse the data and root out any money-wasting energy guzzlers! From there you can make changes to your setup in an entirely informed way.

STAY INFORMED

Check your energy consumption data in the Loxone app. No matter where you are, you’ll always be able to monitor and respond to your meter readings immediately.

VISUALISE

It’s not all just dry numbers, y’know – you can check out your statistics in a handy, easy-to-understand graphic form in the app as well.

CONTROLLING MODBUS DEVICES

With the Loxone Modbus extension hooked up, other devices such as heating systems, air conditioning systems, etc. (anything with a Modbus interface), can be controlled.
