When it comes to a Real Smart Home, the list of functionality can be endless. To sum up the main smart multimedia features, we’ve put together this top 5 list.

1. Multiroom Audio

It is possible to have different music playing in each room of a Loxone Smart Home, thanks to multiroom audio. For example, you could unwind with relaxing, soft sounds in the living room while your children enjoy the mysteries of their favorite audiobooks in their bedroom or the playroom.

2. Intuitive control at your fingertips

The revolutionary switch standard from Loxone not only makes the control of lighting and shading a breeze, but it also gives you playback control of your music at your fingertips. With each switch in the home having the same layout and following the switch standard, you can be sure that the control of lighting, shading and music will be intuitive for children, parents and grandparents. Here is how it works:

3. Alarm clock, doorbell and burglar alarm included

Smart Alarm Clock

Throw out that old classic, annoying alarm clock – there is no need for one in a smart home. Instead, let your home wake you from your slumber via the multiroom speakers in your bedroom. Whether it’s with calm, soothing tunes or some get-up-and-go rock ‘n roll.

Smart Doorbell

If someone rings the doorbell, you’ll be able to hear a custom audio track via the multiroom audio speakers throughout your home, instead of that multitone ‘ding dong’ that you can’t always hear. If you’re rocking out to your favorite tunes as someone rings; the music will pause, the desired doorbell track will play and the music will resume.

Smart Burglar Alarm

If a Loxone Smart Home detects a burglar, it can start playing a bit of heavy metal – some Rammstein perhaps – on all the multiroom speakers throughout the house. It’s unlikely your unwanted guests would want to stick around for that…

4. One app for everything

With the Loxone Smart Home App, you can turn your smartphone into a multimedia remote control. Turn on the music at any time, manage your playlists, control your TV and Apple TV and much more. The beauty of it all? Instead of having countless remote controls, in a Loxone Smart Home, you can control your entire smart multimedia setup with just one, easy-to-use app.

5. Text-to-Speech

Get verbal reminders in your smart home, for example if the garage door is still open after sunset. With the text-to-speech function of the Loxone Music Server, a predefined voice output is created online and played back in the respective audio zone as part of your multiroom audio setup.

Attention! A door or window is still open in the living room.
