Custom Home Automation + Energy Management = Serious Energy Savings

Loxone Platinum Partner, Intelligent Living Solutions, pride themselves on delivering top-tier custom home automation that meets and exceeds client needs. A recent project by Intelligent Living Solutions in a luxurious high-end home serves as a testament to how effectively Loxone’s innovative technology provides sophisticated luxury home automation, energy management, and savings. In this blog post, we’ll delve into how Loxone allows for the creation of seamless, energy-efficient home environments through intelligent presence sensing and control. 

Luxury Home Automation

Intelligent Living Solution’s client, the owner of a sprawling luxury estate, was keen on integrating an automation system that not only provided convenience and security but also promoted energy efficiency. They were particularly interested in a system that could intelligently manage energy consumption, ensuring that unused areas of the home did not drain resources unnecessarily. This presented a perfect opportunity to deploy Loxone’s advanced custom automation systems.

The Power of Loxone in Custom Home Automation Systems

Loxone is renowned for its comprehensive home automation capabilities, particularly in high-end home automation systems. The Miniserver acts as the brain of the integration, coordinating various subsystems to create a cohesive, intelligent environment. For this project, Intelligent Living Solutions leveraged Loxone’s capabilities to deliver a bespoke automation system tailored to the client’s specific needs. 

Intelligent Presence Sensing

One of the standout features of Loxone is its advanced presence sensing technology. By installing Loxone Presence Sensors throughout the house, Intelligent Living Solutions enabled the system to detect movement and occupancy. This allowed for the automation of various functions such as lighting, heating, and cooling based on whether a room is in use. 

For instance, when a person enters a room, the presence sensor detects movement and signals the Miniserver to activate the automatic lights and adjust the temperature to a comfortable level. Conversely, when the room is vacated, the system can automatically turn off lights and reduce heating or cooling to save energy. This intelligent presence sensing ensures that energy-consuming functions are only active when needed, significantly reducing energy cost and waste. 

Automated Energy Management

Energy management in high-end home automation systems is not just about controlling lights and temperature; it’s about integrating various systems to work in harmony. With Loxone, the shutdown of energy-consuming functions is automated in parts of the house that are not in use. This included: 

  • Lighting Control: Using Loxone’s intelligent lighting control, lights are programmed to switch off automatically in unoccupied areas. This not only saved electricity but also extends the lifespan of the lighting fixtures. 
  • HVAC Control: By integrating the HVAC system with Loxone, the system adjusts the temperature based on occupancy, maintaining comfort while minimizing energy consumption. 
  • Appliance Management: Certain high-energy appliances were also linked to the Loxone system. For example, power-hungry devices like pool pumps and entertainment systems were programmed to shut down when not in use, providing substantial energy savings.

Custom Home Automation for Unique Needs 

Every luxury home has unique requirements. The customization capabilities of Loxone allowed Loxone Partners to tailor automation system to fit these specific needs perfectly. Here are some custom home solutions Intelligent Living Solutions implemented: 

  • Zone-Based Energy Management: The home was divided into several zones, each with its own automation profile. This zoned approach allowed for precise control over different areas of the house, ensuring that energy usage was optimized without compromising comfort. 
  • Time-Based Automation: The system was programmed to follow a time-based schedule for certain functions. For example, outdoor lighting and pool heating were set to operate during specific hours, aligning with the client’s lifestyle and further enhancing energy efficiency. 
  • Remote Monitoring and Control: The client wanted the ability to monitor and control their home remotely. Using the Loxone app, they can check the status of various systems, receive alerts, and make adjustments on the go. This remote functionality adds a layer of convenience and ensures that energy management is always at their fingertips.
