What makes true automation?

The Loxone Smart Home perfectly meets the needs of its occupants, performing tasks according to schedules and taking into account factors such as season, weather and presence in the home. The system and each component adapts on its own to suit your lifestyle. It thinks the way you do and will know to do certain tasks so you don’t have to.

It takes care of thousands of actions for you: automatically regulating the climate, music, lighting and everything in between.

The answer to your questions: The Real Smart Home Compendium

You may have heard us talking about Loxone homes as ‘Real Smart Homes’. What does that really mean, though? What makes a Loxone Smart Home different to other solutions and what does it take to be classed as a ‘real’ smart home?

With our free compendium, you have all the answers in your hands, and more.

Read about the features and benefits that you can expect from a real smart home, in a nutshell.

We can tell you one thing in advance: It’s more than just controlling your lights with an app! It’s the indescribable feeling that comes with having over 50,000 everyday tasks taken off your hands every single year. It’s the pure pleasure of having time to focus on the important things in life.

How to control
a Loxone Smart Home

Life in a Loxone Smart Home is like flying on autopilot. Your home thinks the way you do. If you ever want to change something, a single click on a switch or a tap on a smartphone or tablet is enough to do so.

We believe in keeping essential functions in the home, like still being able to turn the lights on and off from a switch on the wall.

The Loxone Switch Standard

For everyday functions in your home

Think of it as Smart Home 101. A clear smart home standard that ensures simplicity and ease of interaction by reducing the complexity and the need for endless switches. For us, this means a uniform layout for switches throughout the house. Whether in a child’s room, living room or bathroom, it’s about ensuring that every room can be controlled in the same way. This not only makes the residents happy but keeps visitors happy too (like the in-laws)!

All in the app

There if you want them, but you don’t need them.
We’ve designed a beautiful app for the Loxone Smart Home. It puts the entire functionality of your home in the palm of your hand. For example, if you want to unlock your front door from afar to let your guests in if you are running late.

For when you want a little more control, there’s the Loxone App. Use it for setting the desired temperature in the bathroom, selecting your favorite playlist to accompany your inner-chef efforts in the kitchen, or simply seeing an overview of your home’s energy consumption, for example.

The nice thing about this functionality is that your home doesn’t actually need your interaction. It runs perfectly without the app, so it’s simple and fuss-free for all the family.

Our Recommendation:

For those rare occasions where you feel you need to take control using the Loxone App, we suggest installing a dedicated iPad Wallmount in a room that acts as the heart of the home, like the living room or kitchen.

Essentials: must-haves in every room

Think of a Loxone Smart Home similarly to the operation of your nervous system: it needs information from sensory “organs” to work. In this case, your home relies on devices like sensors and more to relay important information and react accordingly. Let us introduce you to the smart home’s key players:

Temperature icon

Temperature Sensor

The temperature in a room is one of the biggest factors that influences whether or not you feel comfortable and relaxed in your own home.
Motion sensor icon.

Motion Sensor

The presence of people in a room plays a major role in how that room behaves (in terms of lighting, temperature, security, etc)
Door icon.

Door & Window Contact

Should a door leading into the home or a window be opened, this information is crucial for many functions in a smart home.
Plus sign icon.

… and more

With additional sensors, you can provide an even more comfortable and safe smart home. These would complement the above mentioned must-have sensors.
