Building Automation System for custom processes
Regardless of how unique your project is, Loxone can offer you high-levels of automation as a customised building management system. The Loxone Miniserver – the brain of the system – is intelligent enough to process detailed logic, so individual requirements are no issue whatsoever.
Individual solutions for individual problems
Thanks to our powerful solution you can solve numerous individual problems on your project. The graphical interface of our software along with the large selection of function blocks allows simple and quick implementation when coupled with the know-how of a Loxone Partner.
Our Patners have already implemented countless unique solutions on projects. Here are a few interesting examples:
irrigation of a football pitch
Automatic locking of the pumps at a petrol station if the CCTV cameras are disabled or malfunction.
Level monitoring and alarm in automatic car wash
Automated parking system with pneumatic bollard control
Temperature monitoring and control to maintain the cold chain in a large butcher’s shop
Server monitoring via periodic ping request and a subsequent phonecall if downtime is detected
Intelligent building automation
Loxone has a multitude of open and configurable interfaces; this paired with the freely programmable nature of the system gives you the individuality you need. The goal of intelligent automation is to comprehensively integrate the entire building together to create a holistic system which works together. Here are some examples of intelligent automation:
Temperature & humidity recording
Automated hall or warehouse lighting
If you have a particularly large project, several Miniservers can be merged in a gateway/client grouping. This increases capacity and enables automation on a large-scale.
The gateway Miniserver combines all of the respective sub-areas together and forms a comprehensive system with an accompanying app. Should the maintenance or expansion of an individual sub-area be needed, all other sub-areas will continue to run autonomously. Due to the gateway/client relationship of the Miniservers, any updates can be handled locally.
Focusing on your specific requirements
Loxone has a wide range of open, freely configurable interfaces meaning integration into every single element of the building is possible. The following interfaces are available:
Extensive product range
Our extensive product range means you can get all of your components for your commercial project from just one source. Our products enable the intelligent automation of lighting, heating, audio, security, shading and so much more, all from within one eco-system.
Individual user rights
Manage all of the users in your commercial property. Individualise the access rights of respective user groups and assign different permissions accordingly. Decide who can make signifcant changes to your system and who can simply benefit from using it.
Powerful Software & Free Updates
Whether it’s a hotel, office or apartment building – our powerful suite of software complements your installation and the required functionality. One aspect that is pretty special is that our software is completely free and always up-to-date thanks to free updates.
We offer our intelligent technology as a platform. Control the Miniserver using your proprietary app or create your own visualisation, for example. Using our open API, you can meet custom requirements with the Loxone Miniserver at the core.
Home automation for MDU developments
With over 200,000 Loxone installations worldwide (most of them smart homes), it’s safe to say automation is in greater demand than ever. However, Loxone can be found in more than just traditional family homes, with developers around the world turning to Loxone to automate their large-scale projects. By implementing Loxone technology, you can increase the value and attractiveness of your development whilst simultaneously simplifying the installation process.
Including home automation as standard in your development
Loxone is one of Europe’s leading home automation brands, with the number of Loxone projects growing in their thousands each year.
As a result, our established, reliable solution has become the first choice for several small and large scale developers to include in their builds. From single occupant to large family homes, Loxone is ideally situated as a smart solution for multi-dwelling units and apartments.
Unlike off-the-shelf devices that often stand-alone systems, Loxone truly holistic solution for lighting, heating, audio, security, shading and much more. All of which can be perfectly automated to suit the needs of a home’s occupants. The system can be tailored for a specific function, such as lighting, or it can be expanded to control all elements of the building including zoned heating, smart security, access control, automatic blinds, and more.
In addition, Loxone offers the following functionality for large scale developments of all kinds:
Intelligent building protection and supervision
Loxone offers comprehensive functionality for the protection and monitoring of the building:
Fire and water alarms
Smoke detectors, water sensors and temperature sensors ensure that your properties are continuously monitored. Upon detection, an alarm chain will immediately be triggered.
Storm and Frost protection
Using a weather station for live data, the building can automatically react when the weather turns and the wind picks up, closing roof windows, and retracting external shading.
Excessive humidity can cause considerable damage to the interior and fabric of a building. Monitoring humidity and controlling airflow can prevent mould growth.
Data such as temperature, humidity and air quality are continuously recorded. This data can then be sent to the building management staff collated for monitoring.
Simplified building maintenance
Loxone offers a range of functionality that simplifies the management and maintenance of multi-dwelling units and apartment buildings.
Electronic access control and monitoring
Central monitoring of maintenance schedules, with notification functionality
An open interface for the connection of your own administration software
Central management of user accounts
Measurement of electricity and water consumption
Simpler than other automation systems
Award-winning Tree technology is a completely free-form cabling topology, allowing you to wire for home automation in a way that suits the installation. Just one cable is needed to handle both communications and the carrying of power for all peripheral Tree devices. This minimises the wiring effort and can reduce the cable needed by up to 80% when compared to other similar automation systems.
