Enter now for your chance to win a Loxone Smart Home system, worth over £5,000

Win a smart home system

Winter brings us shorter days, dark evenings and dropping temperatures. Our homes should feel warm and inviting, but this means changing hot water timings, thermostat settings and checking outside lights are working.

Imagine if your home effortlessly adapted to the winter season without you lifting a finger. You wake to dimmed lighting in a cosy bedroom, you walk into the en suite, the soft mirror light comes on, the underfloor heating feels warm beneath your feet and you step into a hot shower. Sounds perfect? Well, this smart home living experience could be yours.

Grand Designs has teamed up with Loxone to offer readers the chance to win a Loxone Smart Home system worth over £5,000. Designed and made in Austria, the system will cater to your every need this winter, with clever heating, lighting and security features that work intuitively in the background. Lights turn on as you enter a room – while the brightness and colour changes to match your preferences – whether it’s a warm yellow in the morning or a romantic red for evening. Zoned heating will warm and cool every room individually, while water and smoke detectors will detect any unexpected events, such as burst pipes. And for your complete peace of mind, you can arm and disarm the alarm from afar, plus you can also check in on your home remotely, via the app.

The Loxone Smart Home system can be fitted into any home without cabling or renovation. To find out more, visit loxone.com or call 0118 313 0140

This competition is now closed. 

Loxone terms and conditions:

The winner will need to agree to a specific time and date for a Loxone engineer to visit their home and can select up to eight rooms for smart lighting, heating and security.

(Rooms are assumed to have one radiator/one radiator valve per room).

All entries must be submitted online before 28 February 2017

Competition valid January 30th 2017 - midnight on February 28th 2017 only. Terms and conditions
