Autopilot Living at the Loxone Showhome
Welcome to the original
Discover autopilot living at a first of its kind show home in Europe
“Our best idea – Autopilot Living – is hard to put into words. You really have to experience what it’s like when the Loxone Smart Home is taking care of thousands of processes for you, completely inconspicuously. In our Smart Show Home, intelligence and convenience come together seamlessly to enhance living.
At last we have somewhere where we can really show off Autopilot Living as we open the doors to our very first Smart Show Home. We invite you to immerse yourself in the world of Loxone Smart Homes. “

Complete package for happiness
In a Loxone Smart Home, the home takes care of many daily tasks for you, so there is more time for the important things in life. Together with our Loxone Partners we have created the perfect space to showcase true automation in all its glory. Let the Loxone Showhome fill you with inspiration for your next project to expand your business.
A home that cares for you like no other
Upon walking in, the room fills with music and ambient lighting that flows through to the spacious kitchen, dining and lounge area. The hub of the Loxone Showhome is the stylish lounge. On dark and chilly days, the home knows to automatically turn on the fireplace to cast a cozy glow over the lounge. The plush seating and natural materials make it a relaxing and inviting place to relax after a busy day.
With just a tap of the Touch switch, the room can bring on the perfect lighting scene for a leisurely read, a lively party
or simply an evening watching TV.
Set the scene for every room
The Showhome features different lighting scenes throughout. When you walk into the Showhome, an ‘everyday’ lighting scene turns on and you are welcomed with predefined music. When you are cooking, the lighting above the kitchen island will shine brighter than typical. At the tap of a Touch switch or the app on your smartphone, you can change between lighting scenes. To avoid a room becoming too hot in the summer, the blinds can automatically close or tilt (seamlessly integrated with (with Geiger Antriebstechnik and Schlotterer blinds). At night, the blinds will know to close to give you some privacy.
Simply set in stone
A unique feature is the switch built into the stone worktop in the kitchen: the Touch Surface. Stop fumbling around with messy hands trying to adjust the lights or music. Located next to the sink is the switch made up of subtle grooves, carved into the Strasser countertops – the switch perfectly matches the layout and control of our Loxone Touch switches. The switch is only activated when you tap to use it and goes into standby after five seconds. From this switch, you can control the lighting, blinds and music.
With music, subtle lighting and a comfortable temperate, the bedrooms in the Showhome welcoming for all our guests. Whether you are there to work or relax, you can set the scene with lighting and music at the touch of a switch. When you turn on the TV, the autopilot will deactivate the music in the room for you.
A triple-click on the switch beside the bed then activates night mode. If you then get out of bed in the middle of the night, just the right amount of lighting comes on to highlight your path to the bathroom, so that you aren’t left dazzled by bright lights. The lights will then fade off when you are back in bed. It works just as you would want it to. Coupled with the custom-made Nösslböck beds, Autopilot Living ensures guests in the Showhome have a very pleasant stay.
Rise and shine
You can easily set your own alarm using the Loxone Smart Home App. Choose to be gently woken up with your music of choice and favourite colour lighting.
When you step into the bathroom, the music, lighting and ventilation are automatically activated. However, if it is the middle of the night, the music doesn’t come on and a dimmer lighting mode is activated. Soft lighting then guides your path back to bed.
As the sun sets, the lights turn on automatically – bringing the outdoors to life. Perfect for a refreshing summer evening around the barbeque. The home knows that if the patio doors are open, then the blinds should not be closed, which it would usually do to give you privacy if you were inside. There are so many smart features to discover to create the perfect occasion for any time of day.
your own walls
Your own sauna has never been this easy. Simply place your iButton on the reader and as long as it’s there, the sauna will activate. Or you can also start the sauna straight from the Loxone Smart Home App. When the sauna is ready, the Showhome will announce ‘The sauna is ready for you’ through the speakers or send you a notification or email on your mobile. Enjoy the automatic settings or select your preferred steam intensity, lighting and music.
MORE TIME FOR THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE
Thousands of tasks around the house being taken care of for you.
That is Autopilot Living!
Lighting scenes that come to life
Lighting in the Loxone Showhome works together to create the perfect atmosphere for whatever the room is being used for. Completely change the way a room looks using the various lighting scenes. The lighting scenes suit the mood, whether it’s for a romantic dinner for two, subtle indirect lighting while watching TV, or colourful lighting to get the party going… Give it a try for yourself!
Did you know? Violet light supposedly increases concentration! Why not set up your own learning atmosphere?
Always a comfortable temperature
The Loxone Smart Home sets your desired temperature throughout the house, room by room. At night, the temperate changes in the bedrooms to offer a perfect night’s sleep. During the day, the comfort temperature is set in the lounge. Individual control means anyone is comfortable in any room.
No more stuffy air
A Loxone Smart Home makes sure that there is always fresh air. In our Showhome, the central ventilation system is activated whenever someone is in the dining or living room. Air quality is never a worry when it’s taken care of by the home.
Security: looking out for all the residents
The autopilot also includes an intelligent alarm system, alerting the residents to any dangers:
The fire alarm isn’t only active when you are asleep. It alerts all residents to a possible fire. The lights begin to flash, the escape route is illuminated and notifications are sent to all the residents’ smartphones. A warning announcement is made over the speakers and the blinds are opened to make the house transparent.
Burglars have no chance up against the Showhome. After a certain period of no one being in the home, the Showhome automatically arms itself. If the alarm is triggered, a call is made to the emergency contact, the lights begin to flash, and music is played throughout the house at maximum volume.
Special feature: The showhome can sometimes be left unattended for longer periods of time, so the refrigerator needs to be specifically monitored. If there is a power failure, the autopilot will send a message informing you so that you can take action.
To protect the home, electrical goods and appliances against water damage, water sensors have been placed in the kitchen and plant room. If water is detected, you will immediately be notified via email on your smartphone and call will be made to the emergency contact so that they can respond as soon as possible.
Guests can gain access into the Showhome using their unique iButton. This can be placed on the iButton reader at the front door, which then deactivates the alarm and unlocks the door.
If the intercom outside the front door is rung, then a chime will play in each of the rooms, except in bedrooms where ‘night mode’ is active. From your smartphone, you can then see who is at the door, speak to them, and even unlock the door for them.
Intelligent energy control
The autopilot intelligently ensures the Showhome is energy efficient. It ensures, for example, that there is no overloading, and that the sauna, appliances and the charging of the electric car are done at the most opportune and energy-efficient times. When no one is at home, the lights turn off, the heating is lowered and appliances are turned off. When the PV panels are receiving enough sunlight, the power will be sent to the Fronius inverter which will in turn charge your electric car – so it doesn’t cost you anything! The fronius battery will then store any excess power.
The charging station at the Loxone Showhome is open to the public to use.
