IDES Limited Edinburgh and Scotland’s leading and longest established KNX, Dali and Loxone lighting specialists have recently upgraded a large residential property built last year in Perth with the LOXONE mini-server.
Having carried out the home automation and audio visual works for the new build using KNX to control the lighting, motorised blinds and curtains, the client wanted to easily be able to set, adjust and create lighting scene’s.
With over 100 lighting circuits Loxone’s mini-server easily met the requirements. Not only can we set scene’s on a room by room basis but we can also create global scene’s throughout the house, such as ‘entertainment’ ‘ welcome home’ scene’s etc.
This level of control is achieved using Loxone’s ‘app’ for the Apple i-Pad, this provides the user interface and also allows switching of the lighting control system and motorised curtains and blinds all from one area.
With this level of control being available from one unit the client was delighted to know that he can also remotely access the control of his house from anywhere in the world. Our client now wants to further upgrade the Loxone lighting control system to give him control over his heating system.
