Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, my
name is Jean Pierre Krämer, most of you know me on the subject of cars, but today it will be about something completely
different, namely the subject of smart homes and I have to say in advance that I am not a professional, I
have a relative little idea and was n't that convinced at the beginning. Now I'm a bit
convinced, that's why I'm at Loxone today and a cameraman will
probably interfere more often that is Mowo , because he is on the pro side. I
'm just in between and now want to be convinced what all this brings
and where it can be used at all , so let's take a
closer look. I'm really excited, it can be very fun because
I'm not the professional. So I have to correct myself with one thing
and that is Loxone, the whole thing is called, I think I said Loxone, that is Loxone. So, you can
see what a professional I am.
I think I have to go this way. Hello, I'll do it like that.
Exactly! Jean Pierre. Howdy, hello. Manuel Nader. Hi, so now I'll get a
tour here explaining what is possible. I will explain to you what "Create Automation"
means, that is our slogan that means here: What have we automated, what can
you do so that you have added value at the end of the day . I have to warn me very
briefly, because I am really still Mister Light Switch. Is that a light switch, for
example? This is exactly what our "Touch Pure" is. There would be game-over for me because there is
no seesaw at all. Does that mean I just press it now ? Can press on it,
exactly. We will explain again later in more detail . Where am I pushing, in the middle?
Easier in the middle, just press it. That means a button has several functions? We are
talking about lighting moods here precisely. It is very important to use it intuitively, no large
labels, everyone knows the touch surface, which is why one goes to the touch operation
I guess based on the graphics, I can also use the outer fields. Exactly,
there we have left and right facets. You're already laughing like that. I will
explain that in more detail later in the tour, because it's a standard that is the same in every room,
that's the cool thing. So every room gets such a thing. Exactly, or at every door. And
I can operate everything with this one device. Can I fully use this room, yes.
That is our goal and we have implemented it perfectly. That means, with this one switch
, how many light switches can I virtually eliminate? In this room we have seven circles of light, then
two blinds, there we would certainly have seven switches. Do I use everything
here? We do that with the one who also measures temperature humidity.
We need that for temperature control and ventilation control. He also measures the temperature?
It measures the temperature and also the humidity, less is more is our approach. I
'll just do something again, press. This is always a new mood
that you switch. This is music that lasts a little with the internet radio
when you press the button. Just a moment, then wait. Streaming builds up. We have
our own music system, music server. An own? Yes. And how do I turn it off again? Double click
right and it's off.
That means you have to remember things, you can't get out in the sun.
Once noticed, every room is the same, the whole house functions identically. That means once you have
this system very immediately but afterwards again. I would say we start outside like when you walk
into a house or a company. OK. First of all, I have to give a compliment, the one
with the green is really very cool because green is such a color that not so many people have in
sight and that looks strong.
Green, sustainability also really save CO2 and
energy in the house. Do I really save energy with it? You save energy in a
building like the one we see here. This is a commercial property that belongs to Loxone, we have a
lot of employees here, a lot of PCs that don't turn them off in the evening, the employees who turn
the system off automatically. The ventilation goes back and now in the time of Corona
the ventilation has gone up so that we have more circulation.
system deals with such issues automatically. As a percentage, how much would you estimate do you save in a normal house?
In a house you save a third of the costs. What?! One third? It is only heated when
I need it and not only when the outside temperature is minus 20 degrees and then you just heat it that
way. Can you imagine that something like this will be mandatory in the future? There are grants for
all the topics, but many don't know. Even for heating controls, the whole topic is already being
promoted. Because the government already says it will be important to just take care of the energy and energy consumption in the future
, so there are subsidies in Germany but
many do not know that.
Yes, me neither. What do we have here? We simulate an entrance area where we
can show what it looks like in front of a house entrance door . Oh! We always say: like test
driving a car. You don't just buy a car without actually sitting inside and feeling
the horsepower. I'm the wrong person to talk to, because that can happen at one point
or another. So we already say: test drive in an automated building, that's what
we'll do here. That means end customers, companies who want to build a company come here and they all
look at it and say: cool thing , I want that. Then let's play. What
do we have here? Our camera is important when entering , it is also developed here in this
So you develop and do everything yourself? Everything by yourself! Software and hardware are
completely in-house. We do not outsource. Do I find that very good? It
's all in our hands. Here we have the Baudisch Intercom, very high quality made of aluminum and
glass, no plastic eye. Very easy to use. We have a button here and when
you press it you can see here in the showroom that there is an acoustic and an optical alarm.
The loudspeakers ring and the lights go on and off briefly. Can you adjust whether you
want it or not. And these speakers are also connected through the system? Exactly, you have to
have heard it beforehand. These are our loudspeakers , they not only make music, they also ring.
You can try again. We have a 60 second delay if someone is at the
door who wants to annoy you. That's why we have a 60-second delay so that not one of them
rings the storm bell all the time. Okay smart. But that too can be stopped again? You can set it back to one
second or up to ten minutes, this is individually adjustable.
is 60 seconds. What is fascinating for me is that suddenly this static
house, the original idea of a house, suddenly becomes something like a huge cell phone.
Or a huge, variably adjustable thing and I think that's very new because, for example,
someone rings the doorbell, the lamps flash. With that you are already thinking so far that nobody can annoy
you, you can simply turn it up to 60 seconds so that it does not flash, but you
can also turn it down again.
This means that this variability was
not present in a house before. Or you have children and then the loudspeaker
shouldn't turn on, just the light in certain rooms and show me: someone is there. Or
I have a friend who hears very poorly, he has to react to light flashing, based on
different patterns and signs. Yes, okay. So even in the "restricted" area, if
you are somewhat restricted, the building can support a lot. We have a cool
product for access, that would be important to me. How to get in Here you can find our NFC Code
Touch. NFC? Here we can enter different codes for different doors.
In the house too ?!
You can place it anywhere. For example, access to the server room, there is only allowed
in or in the company with you.If you say there is a special car there, only he
who is allowed in, then you do an NFC code touch in front of the door and then you have to yourself
authenticate. The things also look very valuable, I have to say. Yes, there is also a glass look,
nothing tears off. So that you can see where you pressed. Nobody changes the code,
you can change the code via the app.
You can assign "one-time codes",
weekly codes, …. Can "one-time codes " only be entered once? Exactly, for
example a friend of mine gets a spade in the garage, then I give him a
code e.g. 5689. Then he goes in and then he is deactivated. Or when I'm on vacation he
gets a code for two weeks and does the cats and plants. I'm
good at it now. You can also ring the doorbell here, we have the same system as before. But they are
now linked again and the 60 seconds apply not only here but to the house? Exactly,
you can set that individually, but actually you have a standard and always do it the
same way. We also have an NFC key fob. This is a green fob for
kids who don't tell the code in school or kindergarten. Or also for
employees. Oh, so something for the Ferrari too. We have people in Switzerland who have several
cars and a turntable in the garage. He then chooses Fob 3 and then comes the "Porsche".
Great! You can do a lot of cool things. So that means you offer these control
options and that can be built again in connection with normal things that are in the house with
electrical functions anyway? Exactly, a door lock or whatever.
Because we send a signal
or a turntable is controlled. So there you can do the craziest things with it.
In general, it was for the entry of a company, for entrepreneurs who are not always there and
the supplier something then, he gets access in a certain area and he does
not leave things in front of the door, these are often the issues. Yes, that's fine! Yes,
we entered a very light code here "1234" and it's open and I'm coming in,
please walk into our showroom. What I think is good is the visual representation, so
when you enter the code you have the four points above, which are first white and
then glow green.
Please, walk into our living room and bar area. Yeah okay the light
goes on when I come in. In the interior we have installed detectors everywhere that the light comes on
automatically. I say it as it is, I'm very new to the subject, now
when I come in the moment I thought for a millisecond: It's very dark. How
do I get the light on now and how the light came on evenly, that's fine.
Sure, there are motion detectors everywhere , nothing new is nothing new. Exactly, this is
nothing new, has been around for a long time. "Fading" is definitely a great thing. The light does not go
"zack!" but that is in a gentle "dimming behavior". Yes, that was really very good.
And we'll see that now. Now we have a room here, we have eight circles of light here. Eight
pieces? Exactly and LED stripes.
That means I have eight light switches. So exactly eight such a
game. The lamps come from us, so we developed the spots, the Pendelums, very
high resolution and the dimming behavior is very smooth and therefore a nice fading. You
go in, the light goes on and then I stay in the room and then I say I need a
different mood. You can set which color the RGBW, I can set everything
I want. Can it always shine? It also has an orientation light, yes.
I can turn it on as I want. And here I switch moods in this room.
time I press it do I get a different mood? So four moods are standard
. Here we have TV and read comfortably. That would be reading, for example. However
, as we will see later, the customer can set this on the app as he wants. Self? That
means nobody has to come, I can do that myself? Can you mess around with anything for years.
Humans are creatures of habit, you get up at the same time, so at some point you have your
moods where you don't change that much , unless you have a party then
maybe you have a color change. Yes, so please show it , eight circles? We have eight circles and
I make them romantic with moods, for example, someone has set up here. This is very important for Mowo
. That would be read and you could also do TV here, so that's the mood.
the middle you can just click on it, i.e. with the whole area. How do i make up?
I show off at the end. It would work out, a double click is always space out. But this
is always the same, so a double click is space out. Switch off standby consumption
Lights off, music off, everything gone and I don't need to press 5 buttons 10 times. Now we have the
left facets. Press the left once and up: raise the shading. Can I configure that myself
? No, left is up and down. But there is automatic shading, that is, when
I'm not at home and the sun is shining, so the room temperature is too high then the
shading is automatically lowered and the slats adjust. That means this thing also regulates
the room for me, in the bedroom for example: the sun shines full pipe on it he notices: the
room is getting too warm and the house then automatically puts the shading on it.
Exactly in the
direction of the compass where the sun is shining and that in the morning in the east and then of course not in the south
. It works automatically. But when I come home and I want to intervene,
you should be the master of the house and then I can intervene and adjust the slats
or raise the shading. Just press up and down and then stop. I understood that quickly. Can I
press on here? So above or below music is on, so please press it once. After
we have an internet radio, we need a little bit but it will come soon.
Then the stream is built up, staying on the bottom is quieter. OK. So the bottom of the button
on the right is quieter, staying on the top right is louder.
If I want to have another station,
I press the top right twice and then I have another source, can connect Spotify,
can do from four to 20 zones. I see in his face like this: yes man. You have to
imagine that everything is not just over the counter. It gets fun when you have your cell phone
or iPad in hand. You can still do a lot there. But our approach is …. That
's enough for me. … that you don't need your cell phone . You can change something so there is a
central control unit that we will show at the end but …. And then play on it again
that it got here. … basically you should be able to operate the house without being
on the cell phone all the time. I mean that. Some people tell me yes, please take
your cell phone. I don't want to pick up my cell phone to turn on the light in the
toilet, I don't want that. I still want to continue to live as Jean Pierre just
like before and want to integrate the advantages in my everyday life and that, so I have to say about the light switch
, I also think it's so good because it is visually more attractive, I can choose it
freely change my mind and in any case I would not be able to do this or that so quickly that
would certainly not be possible.
But if you're sitting on the couch and really just
want to change the music, then you can do that on your mobile phone and don't have to get up extra.
Let's sit down on the couch for a moment. Here we have a cool product, the Remote Air.
It also has five tactile points. Okay five? Yes, the same light again. Switching on the light
is our Air technology. So the top one is in the middle and this is right and left.
Up and down the blinds. Music on and off, louder and quieter. Per room, per house? Can be used
as often as you want. I used it as a garage door opener because I have secure
radio transmission. That is encrypted and at Normstahl Garagen what I have
learned beforehand. Seriously? So there are a lot of trucks driving with me. I have that as a garage door
opener and then the alarm system disarms when I open the garage door. Because
I know Manuel, my wife or a car comes home and there is one on the terrace.
Okay, that means I'm going to the bedroom now, then that is also possible? You can use this in the bedroom
as well, yes.
Another or the same? Another, who is
assigned to a specific room. Okay okay There is a cool thing. I want to watch TV then I can
set different moods. For example, I could, the blind is now
down, the blind move down, can change lighting moods, can
switch off the music, so now no music is playing but otherwise it would switch off automatically.
I see! Music is playing and the device recognizes: I turn on the television and the music goes off.
As I said, I can also switch to other lighting moods and so on.
We know the commands from the
remote control, no matter which ones, and then turn all the things on and off. But there comes someone
who programs it all. There is a professional is our partner who finally puts the whole thing into
operation and implements the customer's wishes. Can I understand it that way, as soon as it's electric,
is there actually no limit? The limits are very much in the head, you can really do a lot
nowadays. That sounds so complicated, so blatant. So I listen to music and the system
recognizes the owner turns on the television, he definitely doesn't want to hear any more music and the
music goes off, that's fine for me ….
Must then switch on the surround system and
come automatically. As I said, we have a product where you can recognize IR
commands, we could also use different buttons to change lighting moods from this remote control, from the
Samsung, we could change lighting moods if you wanted. That means he would also recognize that?
There is a little eye on the television down there, and it recognizes the commands from the remote control
and we process the system. That means a command that is via my standardized
remote control, which I always use, which is my television remote control, and I
just turn on ProSieben and at ProSieben the room is red and at RTL the room is yellow. If I
teach in the remote control like that, yes. And now on the subject of saving energy because I think a third
is really an announcement. That means the house also knows when I go? The house knows when I
leave because I have a "leave home button", we'll see that at the end. With a triple click
on the exit, the alarm system is armed and all standby consumers are switched
off and the heating is shut down.
Are all standby consumers gone? Exactly,
we have switchable sockets that look like that, I can retrofit them,
that's not really tragic. This is a radio-controlled socket that I give where
I need it. It measures energy output, temperature and has a relay inside that
switches everything off. Does she do everything herself? A relay simply switches off the
consumer. Do you develop it yourself? Yes, that is a product of ours. Pretty
cool, yeah. You can feel the Air technology like the remote control when you press it, the
remote that works without delays – that 's important.
This is namely a radio signal
that is sent. Yes, that's really awesome. Do you see that? I'm pressing on here now. For me a completely new feeling of thinking right now,
so completely new. So of course I heard about the smart home solution,
what you can do but never really dealt with it because
I always thought so stubbornly, yes, come on. But you already have some cool things in the
house, three. Since I saw the opening , you already have LED Stripes. Yes yes yes these
LED stripes do. But I still think like this: An LED strip, oh look cool, it
even comes with a remote control.
Then I just have a remote control and then at the end of the day I
have 3000 remote controls. Not so clever, of course. I also admit that, because
I also stand at building three with us every time and press different buttons
until the right light is on. Is stupid. One scenario would also be a demonstration of the new
car something. A button. First dark and then light fades upwards and a certain color
or whatever we could do, like moods in a building. I always say
like this: It is important that the system adapts to the user and not the user to the system. That
is the big goal we are pursuing. That all sounds very cool from what you say, I really have to
say. I saw earlier that there was a wind turbine at the entrance upstairs. Exactly, that is the
weather station that you need as security for the shading for external blinds.
certain wind speed is exceeded, if it is still increasing or if it is
raining, the roof window is closed or if the temperature is too high or the
brightness is too high, then we know: sunshine and the room temperature too high
then we lower the shading so I can do not need air conditioning and have to cool the building
because that is again a waste of energy. Can I see the pad, this control element.
We installed that up front. We do it, we go around … Yes, gladly, gladly. …
and we'll do that at the end. We still have bedrooms ….
We are not finished yet? No no. … and bathroom..
