Lighting


With a Loxone system it’s so simple too create the exact ambience for your exacting moods. Not only can the brightness be changed but also a range of different colours to create your perfect scene. You can program in different scenes for all occasions, cinema mode for movie night, party mode for entertaining all activated by a tap of the smart light switch or via the smart app.

The lighting works on motion sensors the lights go on when someone enters a room and off when the system detects no movement to assist in energy saving so no lights are ever left on when lights are not required. The advanced motions sensors have a built in lux (light) sensor meaning they only activate the lighting scenes during low light hours.

Loxone lighting works with traditional mains powered lights, more modern 24v lighting and LED strips, you can even power side lamps meaning you have no limitations to lighting designs.

You have loads of options with Loxone and some great features:

  • When you are away the lights can be set to come on randomly creating presence simulation and ward off burglars.
  • The smart app allows you to turn off all lights at the same time and even activate them remotely.
  • You can have a light switch next to your bed which can be programmed to switch off all lights or even turn on the burglar alarm if you have that feature.
  • Use the app to disable a switch if your children keep pressing buttons they shouldn’t.
Heating


Most homes will have a single temperature sensor which will determine how warm your entire house is. This is not an efficient way to heat your home. Don’t worry, there is a better way…

LOXONE controls the temperature in each room, so if you have rooms unused you don’t need to heat them. You can also override the system using the smart app to either raise the temperature if you want to cosy up or lower it should you be having a party!

A SMART HOME will bring your room up to the desired temperature at the time specified, rather than traditional systems which start heating the room at the selected ‘on’ time.  This is much more efficient and energy saving as the heating isn’t just running at full blast during the scheduled period its only runs to maintain the desired room temperature.  When you are away the system uses holiday mode to set each room onto frost protection, meaning your pipes are safe as well as your bank balance.

Combining with a motion sensor the heating system will automatically keep the heating on passed the nominated schedule if it detects movement in the room.  This saves you forcing the heating on and forgetting to turn it off again! To round it up you can control the system remotely using your smart phone and even store handy stats to uncover potential savings.

Security


There’s no better peace of mind than knowing that you have secured your home with a state of the art security measure and the Loxone system does just that. A Loxone burglar alarm can work with a traditional outside bell or with the Loxone Music Server, it can be set to flash all the lights, open the blinds or curtains and send out a siren or even heavy rock music when triggered.

The system logs activity so you know who has activated and de-activated the system. It can even warn you if a window is open when you attempt to arm the alarm.

Why not integrate into the Loxone intercom, see who is calling at the door even if you are away from the house.

Audio Visual


Fill your home or office with the sweet sound of music whatever your personal preference of relaxing classical or Rock ‘n’ roll or soothing Jazz or different in each room according to the occupier!

The audio feature can be a fantastic addition to your other features and is easily installed with speakers discreetly placed in either ceilings or wall mounted. You can stream music from either your phone or use apps like Spotify, you can even upload your favourite CDs to the music server. Playlists can be created to suit your daily activities or moods or even party time. You’ll wonder in a very short space of time how you ever managed without it.

The Loxone music server can also be used as your alarm clock, waking you up with radio or your favourite playlist. It can also be used to sound the burglar alarm in the event of a break in.

Loxone can also control iR devices such as your TV, Apple TV and more which is great to be able to centrally control all devices.

Shading


Controlling your motorised blinds or curtain is easy with Loxone and can work seamlessly controlled by your smart app or programmed wall switches.

The blinds can go up and down at a scheduled time or left to open at sunrise and close at sunset. They can work with the Loxone burglar alarm opening when an intruder has been detected so they have nowhere to hide!
