This skinny home packs a lot of stunning smart home features into its scant space. Nestled on a quiet street near downtown Edmonton in Canada, this Loxone Smart Home combines stylish design and high-end technology with innovative features.

The newly built modern house with traditional features is the home of our Loxone Silver Partner Jeremiah Burak and his wife Shillon. Jeremiah was excited by the opportunity to create a unique smart home for him and his family.

I don’t want to miss it again…

“Each time I’m staying at a friend’s place or hotel, I have to get used to doing everything manually again. Switching lights, adjusting temperatures and ventilation turning on music and so on. I’m not that good with technology, but I really love how our new home takes care of so many things. You don’t want to miss that level of comfort again.”

A smart home for living more comfortable …

When Jeremiah and his wife have planned their new home, they wanted their space as comfortable as possible to relax after a hard day’s work. Edmonton is a beautiful city with a modern touch, but is also known for its cold and dark winter. That’s something Jeremiah and Shillon don’t have to mind anymore – as long as they are at home. Using the Loxone Smart Home Technology made it possible to realize intelligent heating control, stunning lighting, security features, and much more.

The heat boost

Year round the heating and cooling is all done automatically. Jeremiah has predefined their comfort temperature and utilized the intelligent scheduling to maintain the perfect environment. Their home knows to have warm rooms ready when they are at home. If Shillon needs additional warmth on cold days, she can activate the heat boost via the Loxone App. This means temperature in the room will warm up even more for the next 10 minutes for more of a cozy feel. Afterwards the temperature control is set back to the defined temperature and the home resumes its schedule. This has been able to solve the constant fight over the thermostat and increases efficiency.

Softly awake

In Edmonton it will stay dark until 9 am in the winter. Therefore Jeremiah has realized his own smart alarm clock which wakes him and his wife up in a very soft way. Via the Loxone App Jeremiah sets his alarm time. The next morning, as soon as it’s time, music starts playing quietly. In addition, the LED Spots turn on – dimmed. Every 5 minutes the sound volume and the light will get louder and brighter until it reaches a comfortable volume and brightness. Never wake up to a blaring alarm clock again, a smooth waking period reduces tiredness and listening to their favorite songs doesn’t hurt either.

Prepare for bedtime

For Jeremiah it’s important that his home helps him wake up and also be ready for bedtime. As soon as the sun goes down the human body knows that he should prepare for bed. If lights are on in the kitchen, dining room, or living room, they will be dimmed to 50% after the sunset.

Another great lighting feature he has put into action with his Loxone Smart Home is the Night Lighting. Should he or his wife have to get up during the night, the lights in all bedrooms, bathrooms and hall only go on to 15%. This way there is no shock to the senses when tending to kids or using the bathroom.

And More Features

Loxone Intercom

Using the Loxone Intercom and Loxone App Jeremiah can always see who’s standing at the front door. As soon as somebody presses the intercom, a chime is played via the Loxone Music Server and the Loxone Speakers through the house and also alerting them via the App. From there they can communicate with two-way audio if needed. If Jeremiah misses a guest, he can check who was there anyway since the Loxone Intercom hold a picture with time stamp of all visitors.

Two of the favorite features of Jeremiah is their ‘Welcome Home‘ & ‘Go to sleep‘ features. When leaving or going to bed a simple ‘double tap’ at the front door switch or master bedroom lowers the temperature and turns off all lights.

As soon as they come back from work, shopping, or the movies,… the house welcomes them back. The lights go on automatically once they walk in, the room is set to comfort temperature and the music starts playing in the kitchen and living room softly.

For the peace of mind

As long as Jeremiah and Shillon aren’t around, the Loxone Smart Home will take care of it. If somebody would try to break in, they would be informed immediately via their smartphone, the lights begin to flash and an alarm with loud music will sound through the whole house.
