For a wireless/retrofit project, little to no damage would be required! We use a combination of your existing electrical infrastructure and battery powered devices to control your home. No need to worry about having to redecorate after installation. For a wired system it’s the same process as a full electrical rewire.
This depends entirely of the size of your setup but in our experience its normally within a week. The average 2 bedroom flat set up can be installed in a day for a wireless system. For a wired system the longest part is the first fix which is typically a 2 to 4 weeks work for a typical 3 bed terraced house. The Loxone panel will take approximately 5 to 10 days to complete.
In the event of a power cut, you wouldn’t be able to turn your lights or heating on or off anyway so there’s no change there. We do however offer services for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), although this is typically needed in special scenerios where you can’t afford to be offline.
A Miniserver is the brain of your smart home and hosts your app. It plugs directly into your router and communicates with all of your devices over your local WIFI network.
As some wireless systems’ communication takes place over the air, often unencrypted, this bears the risk that unauthorized persons may “overhear” the communication and, in the worst case, repeat commands. As a non-network-based solution, Loxone provides secure encryption that meets the highest standards within any wireless building automation project. In fact, by creating a Cloud-free system, we firmly believe: “Your building, your data“, which means data stays within the walls of your home our building and never gets analyzed externally.
On a wireless hybrid approach, data is still local and ideally we fully manage your network and hence network security. Loxone smart homes are not cloud based, we offer a professionally installed network system that combats network threats as we essentially create a commercial grade setup for your property. We also offer to setup further secuirty such as firewalls/VLAN’s & ultra secure passwords.
