The Principle of Automation:
Autopilot Living

The Loxone Smart Home perfectly meets the needs of its occupants, performing tasks according to schedules and taking into account such things as the season, weather and if anyone is at home. The Loxone Smart Home adapts to suit your lifestyle. It thinks the way you do and will know to do something before you’ve even thought about doing it.

It takes care of thousands of actions for you. Automatically regulating the heating, music, lighting and everything in between.

The Principle of Control
in a Smart Home

Life in a Loxone Smart Home is like flying on autopilot. Your home thinks the way you do. If you ever want to change something, a single click on a switch or a tap on a smartphone or tablet is enough to do so.

We believe in keeping essential functions in the home, like still being able to turn the lights on and off from a switch on the wall.

A Revolutionary Concept:
The Loxone Switch Standard

For Everyday Functions In Your Home

Think of it as Smart Home 101. A clear recommendation that ensures simplicity and ease of interaction by reducing the complexity and the need for endless switches. For us, this means a uniform layout for switches throughout the house. Whether in a child’s room, living room or bathroom, it’s about ensuring that every room can be controlled in the same way. This not only makes the residents happy but keeps visitors happy too (like the mother-in-law)!   

Using Apps & Touch Screens

There if you want them, but you don’t need them.

We’ve designed a beautiful app for the Loxone Smart Home. It puts the entire functionality of your home in the palm of your hand. For example, if you want to unlock your front door from afar to let your guests in if you are running late.

 

For when you want a little more control, there’s the Loxone Smart Home App. Use it for setting the desired temperature in the bathroom, selecting your favourite playlist to accompany your inner-chef efforts in the kitchen, or simply seeing an overview of your home’s energy consumption, for example.

The nice thing about this functionality is that your home doesn’t actually need your interaction. It runs perfectly without the app, so it’s simple and fuss-free for all the family.

Our Recommendation:
For those rare occasions where you feel you need to take control using the Loxone Smart Home App, we suggest installing a dedicated wall-mounted tablet in a room that acts as the heart of the home, like the living room for example.

Essentials: The Must-Haves In Every Room

A nervous system needs information from sensory organs to work. Think of this concept being true for a Loxone Smart Home. In order for your home to operate intelligently, it needs information to make the best decisions. The following three points outline the most crucial sensors as sources of information, without which you wouldn’t be able to create a truly smart home.

Temperature Sensor

The temperature in a room is one of the biggest factors that influences whether or not you feel comfortable and relaxed in your own home.

Motion Sensor

The presence of people in a room plays a major role in how that room behaves (in terms of lighting, heating, security, etc)

Door & Window Contact

Should a door leading into the home or a window be opened, this information is crucial for many functions in a smart home.

… and more

With additional sensors, you can provide an even more comfortable and safe smart home. These would compliment the above mentioned must-have sensors.
