As you may know, we have a small army at Loxone HQ who dedicate their time to building the best smart home software possible. We regularly release updates for both our configuration software, Loxone Config, and our App to ensure our software stays up to date and enjoyable to use.

Our latest offering, the Loxone Smart Home App version 6 has been optimised for tablets and boasts one of our most advanced features yet: Room Mode.

Room Mode: Everything at a glance

Room Mode will change the way you use your home! In Room Mode, you can view and adjust all the primary functions within a room and view important information and updates all from one screen.

For those who like to use their tablet as a wall mounted control panel, the new Room Mode boasts a simple, sleek design with customisable background and function tiles that are intuitive to use.
