Family-friendly isn’t typically a phrase that comes up often when talking about smart homes. Often the perception of home automation is that it’s complicated, expensive and something only ‘grown-ups’ know how to operate. We say that’s rubbish!

A home should be somewhere you can relax and spend time with your loved ones. Being a parent is hard work, so if you’re looking for ways to save time, or just to make those long nights a little less arduous, read on.

6 Highlights Of A Loxone Smart Home For Family Life

Child Safe

Children love pressing buttons and switches – it’s in their nature to be curious. So whether you want to ensure that lights stay off or that the pond cover remains safely across the pond, with just a tap of your phone, you can activate a ‘child lock’ and disable any button or switch throughout your home. You can also disable sockets and appliances via the App, so no need to worry about little fingers getting up to mischief.

Future-Proof

As your children get older, your lifestyle changes and if you’re not in a position to move house, you want to ensure the house works for you long-term. Right now, the box room upstairs is a nursery, but in 10 or 20 year’s time, you may want it for a home office. The modular architecture of the Loxone system gives you the flexibility to change the functionality of your home as your needs change.

Individual Room Control

Set your comfort temperature for each room of the house and never worry about a bedroom that’s too hot, or a bathroom that’s freezing cold in the morning. Heat only the rooms you use, when you use them.

Intelligent Monitoring

In your Smart Home, motion sensors and door contacts act as the eyes and ears of your smart alarm. Should an uninvited guest make their way into your home, they’ll be greeted with flashing lights, sirens and music at full volume, whilst you receive a call to your mobile to let you know what’s going on.

Automatic Night Lights

Once it is dark, lighting scenes will come on automatically when you enter a room. No more fumbling for the switch, and no more being dazzled by bright lights in the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Goodnight Button

The ‘Goodnight’ function helps to make the bedtime routine a whole lot easier. There’s no longer any need to run around the house ensuring that everything is off. All power guzzlers are disconnected from the mains and all the lights go out. If you’re staying up to watch a film and order a takeaway, the sound of the doorbell is replaced by a flashing light, ensuring you’re alerted when your takeaway arrives, but your children are not woken up.
