What is the maximum number of devices I can incorporate into a building?

A maximum of 64 individual LUXORliving devices are intended.

Can I preconfigure a system without connecting it to the devices?

Yes, this is possible at any time. The system can be configured in detail – apart from scenarios, which have to be set later on via the clients (tablets/mobile phones).
Once programming is complete, I can then go into the building, import the hardware and use drag & drop to assign the devices to the program – done!

Am I limited in terms of which buttons I can link to the system?

No, you can integrate any button from the market into the system. With the TA2 I T4 I T8 integration modules, all floating contacts can be integrated; with the REG module B6, non-floating buttons or motion detectors can also be incorporated.

Can the system also dim LEDs?

Yes, the dimmers are based on the highly successful KNX series hardware and are specially designed for professional LED use. The various settings also allow certain adaptations to be made to the lamp.

In order to increase the dimming load of the max. 400 W LED, could I connect a dimming booster from the KNX series?

It is possible to connect a booster to the D2 dimmer, but unfortunately not to the D4.

Can the switching modules handle the now common high inrush currents?

Yes, the switching modules are based on the highly successful KNX series hardware and are specially designed for professional LED use. Inrush currents of up to 800 A/200 microseconds are no problem.

Can a third-party room thermostat also be integrated in the system?

No, unfortunately this is not possible.

With which operating systems can the LUXORplay operating software be used?

iOS and Android.

Is it also possible to control the building with a Windows system (laptop or mobile phone)?

Yes, this is possible with the LUXORplay version for Windows.

Do I have to have a router in the building to configure the building (download the program)?

No, you don't need one. There is also the option to connect a laptop directly to the IP1.

Why may I be having trouble connecting to the IP1?

Once the bus voltage has been applied, the IP1 needs to wait at least 30 seconds to 1 minute, then it should be ready for operation. If you still cannot connect, check the following:

  1. If No LAN appears on the display of the IP1:

    -> Check the cable connection to the WLAN router (FRITZ!Box/D-Link, etc.)
    -> Check the WLAN router (mains voltage applied)


  2. If No BUS is shown permanently on the display of the IP1:

    -> Check the cable connection to the LUXORliving power unit
    -> Check that the bus line isn't broken
What happens (fails) if the IP1, which is needed to communicate with the app, is no longer detected in the system?

In general, all basic functions remain available. Only control with the app (clients), scenario requests and their saved options, as well as the time and presence functions are then out of action until further notice.

Can I also operate the system without app control (cost reduction)?

Yes, this is generally possible. All controls related to lighting and shading remain available. Only control with the app (clients), scenario requests and their saved options, as well as the time and presence functions are then out of action until further notice.
