Smart Home Security System from Loxone.

Smart Home Security – intelligent protection for you and your possessions. In a Loxone Smart Home the users security is of paramount importance – this includes everyone;- Mum, Dad and Children alike all users of a Loxone Smart Home have their own unique identity. This identifier can be used to operate all manor of tasks. However in terms of security it is generally used as a tool for access.

Your Smart Home will ensure that only those granted access to the property are actually allowed to enter. Those living in the property can either carry tags which are scanned in to gain access or they can have their own unique entrance codes. With the use of a Loxone Intercom system those without permission to enter your smart home can be in direct and instant contact with the homeowner through both voice and video – as the user you can remotely allow access into the property through the Loxone app or by creating a one-time code for that person to use.
