I’ve purposefully not put many photos on Facebook while doing this install, so was a little disappointed when i put this picture up: To have it compared to a dentists waiting room, thanks Stuart!
Its feels like its been a long time without ceilings, but they are now back up and Al has sealed them in. The room feels a little more like home now, and the new lighting is certainly making a real difference. Just not looking forward to painting!
This is what happens when you put 24 volts through the inputs rather than the outputs on a mini-server: Setting up the IR modules for the TV and sky box, we made the mistake of connecting the wrong 24 volt connections, resulting in the above and a very unpleasant burning smell emanating from the mini-server. To make things worse, we did this twice, once on the production mini-server and again on the testing unit i have… Doh!! A quick trip […]
Well the downstairs kit is now in place and running, we have the following kit on the ground floor: 1 x 24 Volt PSU 1 x 12 Volt PSU 1 x Mini-server 1 x Dimmer Extension 1 x IR Extension 1 x Air Extension 1 x 1-wire Extension 2 x Air DMX Modules
Its been a long couple of weeks, but the loxone kit is now fully up and running in the house. There’s a lot of tidying up to do in the cabinet but here’s how we’re looking at the moment. Nat is doing an amazing job.
There’s no going back now, the ceilings are almost all down, Al is doing a great job. One of the tidiest workers i’ve ever met.
The kit has been delivered: Final kit list: 1 x Mini server 2 x Dimmer Extension 1 x Extension 1 x Air Module 2 x AIR DMX Module 1 x Infra-red Extension 4 x Remote Eye for IR Extension 1 x 1-wire Extension 14 x 1 Wire Temperature Sensors 2 x 24 volt 2.4amp PSU For the amount of money I’ve just spent it was an incredibly small box!
The lounge and kitchen have been cleared in preparation for the ceilings to come down, apparently its easier for the electricians, i still remain to be convinced on that one.
Back in January 2014 we decided that the time was right to look at modernising our house electrics, and automating what parts of it that we could. Today is the first day of the install.
