Childproofing your house with Loxone technology

Parent’s have long gone through the process of childproofing their homes once their little monsters start exploring. From cupboards to anything with a wire – their inquisitiveness knows no bounds. Like many things in life, the way we ensure a safe environment for our little explorers is changing with time.

The Loxone Smart Home is a great place to grow up. It not only provides around-the-clock protection but it also gives children an effortless and fun way to experience their surroundings. 

Childproofing your house

Thanks to specially designed features

When caring so much about our little ones, it is essential to know that they are out of harm’s way. This is when the Loxone Smart Home shines through by helping to ensure a safe environment. Your home, equipped with protection against burglary, water and smoke already gives you peace of mind but it doesn’t stop there.

Deactivated outlets

Children are always on a journey of discovery, and that can sometimes get them into somewhat uncomfortable or even hazardous situations. Eliminate sources of possible danger by deactivating outlets that are easily accessible for your children.

Panic button

From a certain age it’s no problem to leave your children at home alone – but for a better feeling of safety, a Touch witch can be configured to include a panic button. In case of potential trouble, the home will go into defense with lighting, shading and alarms to help scare off potential intruders and draw the attention of neighbors. Additionally, a family member can get a call alert at any location.

Child lock for switches

Children love to play with interesting objects. Especially when they know they shouldn’t. One example of that would be the Touch switch. To prevent music from turning on and off nonstop or lights flashing for no reason, you can temporarily deactivate specific switches – either in the whole house or individual rooms.

PS: The panic switch, of course, remains active in all situations.

Tip: TV lock from 10pm

Is the TV still on after bedtime? The TV in your child’s bedroom can automatically be turned off and locked at 10 pm. A great way to block any late night TV. Plus, you can also disable any games consoles after bedtime. A nice bit of automated parenting.

Thanks to around-the-clock thoughtfulness

A smart home becomes a Real Smart Home, by not only performing the automated processes but by also considering the youngest residents. The Loxone Smart Home has many features that help take care of the youngest family members.

A silent doorbell

When it’s time for bed, your home can ensure the doorbell sound is deactivated so sleep is not disturbed. You’ll instead be notified if someone is at the front door with the gently flashing of the lights, for example, in the living room and kitchen.

Nightlight

Should you need to get up in the middle of the night – for a midnight snack or for a closet-monster check – your home will guide the way with soft, dimmed light. At the same time, this minimizes the disturbance to anyone else in the family that is still fast asleep.

Rise and shine

“Get up; it’s time for school!” That one sentence can immediately take you back to mornings full of weariness and reluctance. But waking up your little morning grouches is easier in a Loxone Smart Home. Your home can gently start to wake them up at a certain time by playing their favorite music – a great way to start the day.

Lullabies

Every parent knows the struggle when your delightful dears won’t fall asleep. You try bedtime stories, but as soon as you close that book, you’re back at square one. Here is where your smart home can help via the Loxone Speakers. Activate a playlist with your kids’ favorite audio books or lullabies, cradling your child further into dream world once you’ve muttered the words ‘The End.’. You’ll have full playback control of the audio from your phone whichever room you’re in, and the audio can automatically turn off after a set time.

No more growing pains

Time flies by and before you know it, your toddler has turned into a tough teen. That might cause some troubles for your family, but not for the Loxone Smart Home. The functionality in every room will adapt to any lifestyle and ensure that the room lives up to new expectations.

Tip: perfect ambiance for homework

As a child doing homework, pretty much everything else seems more interesting at the moment. Keep your child focused by creating an atmosphere that is conducive to studying. With one tap, you can activate a ‘Homework Mode’ turning on the desk lamp, setting the ambient lighting to a concentration-friendly color and cutting the power to the TV and gaming consoles.

Child’s play

thanks to intuitive control

A Real Smart Home knows its’ job – what, when and how to do it. But if you need to take control at any moment, you can with just a tap on a Touch switch or in the app

Simple Control in Every Room

Our revolutionary key concept guarantees a very easy operation throughout the entire house. No matter if you have a children’s room, living room or bathroom – you and your children will be able to handle every room with the same simplicity.

Our recommendation: The large button for light, the small buttons for shading and music.

One app – with tailored control

The free Loxone Smart Home App offers a detailed level of control that remains intuitive to use. You can personalize the features that your children have access to, allowing them only to control specific areas of your home – such as the TV room or their bedroom. (Of course, you probably wouldn’t want them to be able to control anything in the master bedroom.)
I like the app the best. It’s so easy that I can turn off the lights without having to go to the switch. I show the app to my friends in school because it’s cool to use. Julia, 10 yeas old and a smart home resident
