SETTING UP AIR DEVICES
LEARN IN DEVICES
Every Air device must be connected to an Airbase. The Airbase is the central access point for Air devices, all the information they need comes from it, all the information they provide goes to it. It is crucial that your Airbase is in a suitable location for wireless transmission. Furthermore, upon first powering up an Air device, it will go into learn mode (denoted by an LED on the device cycling through 3 colours).
Once an Air device is in learn mode, it can be found by conducting an Air device search. If an Air device is flashing orange, this means that it has been learned in before, but can now not find the Airbase it was linked with.
PUTTING A DEVICE INTO LEARN MODE AGAIN
Air devices can be put back into learn mode even after they have been learned in. The process for how to do this varies depending on how the item is powered and whether or not it has a learn switch on the device or not.
BATTERY OPERATED WITH LEARN IN BUTTON After reinserting the battery, press and hold a teach in button (usually on the back of the device, a small tab button is what it looks like) for at least 5 seconds until the LED starts cycling through the colours. Please note that you must press and hold this button with 10 seconds of restoring power via battery. Examples of devices that use this process are the Touch Air, Motion sensor Air and the Temperature and humidity sensor Air.
POWERED DEVICE WITH LEARN IN BUTTON Simply hold down the learn in button for at least 5 seconds until the LED starts cycling through the colours. Examples of these devices are the Multi-Extension Air and the Nano IO.
POWERED DEVICE WITHOUT LEARN BUTTON Power down the device for 10 seconds and then restore power to the device. If the device cannot find the previous Airbase it was connected to, then the LED for th device will flash orange. After 2 minutes of not being able to find its old Airbase, it will enter learn mode for 30 minutes. Examples of these devices are the Geiger SOLIDline Air, Shading actuator Air and the RGBW Dimmer Air.
Once devices have been put into learn mode, you need to conduct and Air device search in order to learn them into the Airbase. In order to do so you need to select the Airbase in the periphery and then click on “Air search” when it appears in the top ribbon.
Once the Air search monitor has appeared (look to the bottom of Config), all Air devices that are currently in learn mode and are in range of the Airbase will appear down here.
Below you can see what the search monitor looks like when something appears in it.
If a device is replaced, you can replace the device in loxone config without the need to redo any programming associated with it. To do so, start in the Air search monitor and find the replacement device.
Once you have found the replacement device, simple use the drop down box to the left of the “replace device” button and once you have selected the device to be replaced, you can hit “replace device” and it will simply swap it out not requiring any further change.
