Loxone Smart Home App 6 With New Room Mode Is Released!
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.
Start screen: All the essential room functions at a glance. Control music directly from the Start screen.
Audio: Simply scroll through a range of audio options with the Loxone Smart Audio.
Weather: View accurate weather information and forecasts (requires the Loxone Weather Service).
Eco mode: automatically activated after a set period of time. The screen will darken to save power (and to prevent disturbing you at night). Just one tap will expand the view for the function tiles like temperature and lighting.
How to enable Room Mode in the App
Room Mode is a completely free feature of Loxone Smart Home App 6 and there’s no need to download anything extra to enjoy it. Simply download version 6 and enable Room Mode in the app settings.
New: Optimised for tablets
We have taken our previous user interface for tablets and completely reworked it, to ensure it’s perfectly optimised for tablets.
Other new features
Moreover, there are adjustments to the appearance and usability of the app. We have, amongst other things, enhanced the options for lighting control and improved the music zone functionality.
