All-new Automatic Designer
with improved UI & new functions

The Automatic Designer gives you and your customers the ability to easily create powerful automatic rules without Loxone Config or programming knowledge. For example, use the Automatic Designer to create the logic for an automatic push notification when windows or doors are open at dusk. Or in an office environment, trigger a TTS announcement an hour after closing time when staff are still present in the building to inform them that the burglar alarm is about to be automatically armed.

Support for EEBUS interface

EEBUS is a manufacturer-independent communication protocol for data exchange between energy suppliers, households and energy-related devices in order to increase energy efficiency across the board. Leading manufacturers and energy providers such as Bosch Siemens, Daikin, Vaillant, Miele, Kostal, EnBW and more rely on EEBUS as the technology of the future.

With version 12, we now support the EEBUS interface for ‘HVAC’. This means that devices that offer this protocol in the categories of heating, ventilation and air conditioning can be connected to and controlled via Loxone.

This new Function Block allows you to implement constant light control quickly and easily. All you need is a brightness sensor that is well positioned in the room. Simply specify the desired minimum lux value and the desired adjustment speed – that’s it.

Loxone Config example

Reset Function Blocks to default settings

This new feature is perfect for guest houses, hotels, showrooms and commercial properties: From now on, you can create a default template for certain Function Blocks and “reset to default” via the Loxone App or Loxone Config.

The following Function Blocks support this feature:

  • Lighting Controller
  • Audio Player
  • Room Ventilation Controller
  • Intelligent Room Controller
  • Alarm Clock
  • Schedule Block

These compatible Function Blocks now have a new input (RtD) via which the “default template” can be restored. You can then create your own separate logic to trigger the input. This feature is particularly useful, for example, if you want to reset certain lighting moods, music favourites*, ventilation settings, alarm clocks and schedules to default values.

*in order to use this feature with the Audioerver and the Audio Player Function Module, an update to Audioserver Version 2.5.02.23 is necessary.

Lighting Controller:
Presence input for mixing-in lighting scenes

The Lighting Controller now makes it possible to mix in lighting moods when there is presence. This feature is particularly practical in large, open plan living spaces and commercial properties. For example, in a kitchen/diner with active basic lighting, you can mix in the Bright Mood in the kitchen area as soon as someone moves towards the kitchen while keeping the lighting moods as they are in the other areas of that space.

This function also offers numerous new possibilities in commercial areas, for example, the brightness levels can be briefly increased in the evening when movement is active.

Network Intercommunication

Intercommunication is used to connect several Miniservers, encrypted via the network interface, to exchange data. Digital, analogue and text values can be sent and received.
An Example:
A residential building with three units has one Miniserver per unit and one Miniserver for the entire building. The electricity meter is connected to the building Miniserver but also sends the data to the Miniservers in each respective unit. This way, the tenant also has an overview of their energy consumption. With Network Intercommunication, the data is sent in an encrypted form

Object Linking

With version 12, we have added another powerful user interface customization feature to the Loxone App. From now on, you can link Function Blocks with each other and your customers can see information use functions that are related – all at a glance. To do this, the necessary settings must be set in the properties of the respective Function Block.
