Trust
User management across Miniservers

With the new Trust function, user data such as passwords and access authorizations can be transferred to several Miniservers. This feature has been specifically developed to enable the simple exchange of user data across several buildings. For example, in a company with several office locations or a building complex with several independent Miniservers.

*The Trust feature is only available for the second generation of the Miniserver and Miniserver Go.

CSV User Import

To make user management even easier and more flexible, you can now use CSV to import and update user data. An import template is available for download directly within Loxone Config.

New Function Blocks for energy management

Energy Manager
Function Block Energy Manager

This Function Block is used to optimize energy consumption. If there is surplus, the system can switch on up to 12 power consumers instead of feeding the energy into the grid. In version 12.1 of the Loxone Config & App, the Energy Manager is visualized for the first time and gains the ability to store a user-defined time for completion. For example, the charge of an electric car.

Load Manager
Function Block Load Manager

The Load Manager monitors the current load in the building and protects against overload. When the pre-defined maximum power limit is exceeded, the loads assigned to the Function Block are disconnected and disabled according to a set priority.

New Function Block –
Temperature Management

HVAC Controller

With the HVAC Controller, you can control any type of HVAC system. This Function Block is optimized to coordinate with the Intelligent Room Controller to manage the heating or cooling source and switch between heating and cooling modes. The current status and setting options of the HVAC Controller can be viewed in the Loxone App.

Automatic shading – setting end position

With the new functionality of the “Automatic Shading” Function Block, blinds can be put into Setting Mode in order to define the end positions. Maintenance of any automated blinds is now possible directly from the Loxone App.

Installation becomes easier in areas where the blinds are difficult to reach, such as multi-story buildings.

Automatic Designer scenes

In the new version of Config, you can link a sequence of actions to a scene. 

A scene created using this method can be visualized and controlled directly through the app. So customers can intuitively create their own automation sequences.
