A Loxone Smart Home takes care of tasks around your home automatically, freeing up your time for the more important things in life. It’s living as you’ve always known it, but better.
Loxone is a 360° smart home solution: from lighting and heating control to security, blinds, music and energy management, your whole home can be intelligently automated. Whether you‘re building, renovating, extending, or just looking to improve your home, we have both wired and wireless solutions to choose from. All this whilst keeping your data private to only you.
Step 1 - Allow enough space: The distribution board is at the heart of your Loxone Smart Home, with the Loxone Miniserver as the brain. To ensure that you and your home are well-prepared for the future, we recommend that you allocate 20% of the space in your distribution board as a reserve for future expansion when planning your electrical installation.
Step 2 - Plan for renewable energy sources: Whether you are considering solar panels, a heat pump or just a simple boiler, we recommend that you install cable conduit to locations such as your loft and the rear of your house to accommodate future technologies. Consider adding energy meters at this stage to monitor consumption.
Step 3 - Think switches: Switches should be in easily accessible locations. This doesn’t always have to be next to doors – how about a switch above the work surface in the kitchen? You should also consider how many switches you use. One switch can have many functions and less is often more.
Step 5 - Control sockets: By controlling sockets in key locations, you can stop devices using power on standby when you’re not using them. Not every socket in your Smart Home needs to be controlled though, we recommend that you use a ring main for the majority. After all, you can upgrade any socket to be switchable with a Smart Socket Air at any time.
Step 7 - Charge your electric car: Fossil fuels are a finite resource. To be prepared for the years to come, we recommend planning ahead by installing cable conduit to your garage or drive so that you can have a charging station for your future electric car.
Step 10 - Get in Touch: The installation of your Loxone Smart Home should be planned and carried out by experts. With us you’re in safe hands, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Step 9: Sensors are the eyes and ears of your Loxone Smart Home. To enjoy the smartest features, we recommend a minimum set of sensors that are essential in and around your home. The includes switches, motion and temperature sensors in every room, as well as window and door contacts. For outside we suggest wind and rain sensors, as well as door contacts on the garage door.
Step 8 - Don't forget the garden: It is all too easy to forget about the garden when you are busy building your house. To ensure you won’t have to sit in the dark, we recommend that you either install a cable conduit or even make an allowance for a separate sub distribution board. This will allow you to think about garden lights, irrigation and more when your house is finished.
Step 6: Use future-proof cableUse future-proof cableUse future-proof cableUse future-proof cableWe strongly recommend using a data rated cable such as r all sensors and your network. This will ensure that you are not limited by what you install now in ten years’ time, but have peace of mind that no matter how technology progresses, your house is ready for it.
Step 4 - Consider AV & networking: To deal with rising data demands from music and video streaming, we recommend that you install a wired network throughout your house, especially in locations where you may have a TV. For maximum flexibility and future-proofing, we suggest that you also run your speaker cables back to a central point for the audio distribution.
The great thing about a Loxone Smart Home is that you can choose exactly what you’d like to automate. The system can control just your lighting or heating, for example, or alternatively, it can manage your whole home – from multiroom audio to intelligent electric car charging.
How does it do this? With the Loxone Miniserver. The Miniserver is the heart of your home, enabling intelligent communication between different systems and devices in the home including the heating, lighting, blinds, windows and doors, locks, cameras, music, appliances and switches.
The Loxone Miniserver offers the ultimate Smart Home experience. This miniserver is wired into the distribution board making it ideal for New Builds. In a Loxone Smart Home, everything is managed from central nerve centre: the Miniserver. From switches and simple sensors, to lighting, heating, and even complex systems such as solar, everything is brought together centrally. This allows for simpler control and more intelligent automation of your home.
The Miniserver Go, based on Loxone Air technology, is the intelligent heart of your wireless smart home perfect for retrofitting into homes. The Miniserver Go can communicate via Loxone Air technology, as well as via Ethernet connection and Loxone Link. It’s easily expandable and can grow with your home.

Last year, the UK witnessed more than 70 domestic burglaries every hour. Is your security system due an upgrade? Consider smart security from Loxone for peace of mind.
If smoke or fire is detected or a burglar alarm is activated, your home will immediately alert you with flashing lights and a phone call. Emergency lighting can guide residents to safety and blinds open to alert passersby and give easier access for emergency services. Should a water leak be detected, your home will bring this to your attention so that you can act quickly to minimise any damage.
