The Loxone application found in the Garmin Overlander navigation tablet is what completes the Bliss Mobil unit. A few weeks ago we talked about the Overlander and its ability to navigate the off-roads and now we delve deeper into the system. Loxone has been added to the tablet to allow you to control different aspects of your unit with the push of a button.
Loxone has control over the following but not limited to;
- The batteries
- Hot water boiler
- Audio and speakers
Your travel experience would not be the same without a smart home system that allows you to control and measure different parts of your unit. The easy mobility of the tablet means you can take the control with you whether you are relaxing in the unit or having lunch outside.
Next to the easy controls, you can also easily see important information. Under the batteries tab you can get information on the battery current, state of charge, and voltage. You can also see the amount of current generated by your solar panels. Easy access to such information is important for your safety and your peace of mind when in unpredictable conditions.
Some features, like the water maker, can also be controlled with the Loxone application. It can inform you on its status and inform you when filters need to be changed for example.
Heating and cooling
Besides keeping an eye on the essentials, the smart home system allows you to enjoy all the creature comforts in the most comfortable way possible. Thanks to smart timers, you can set the temperature for the electric floor heating and the airconditioning, making sure that you will always have a hot shower and an interior that is either cooled or heated.
Multiple ventilators are placed on strategic places throughout every Bliss Mobil unit. With smart sensors, the ventilators in hot areas like the battery- and inverter cabinet will be activated if the temperatures reach a certain threshold. The ventilator in the bathroom automatically switched when you engage the light in this area through the smart home system.
Another great feature of the Smart Home system is that you can monitor and operate all the tanks in your unit. The grey- and black water tanks can be emptied by the simple press of a button on your phone or tablet and filling the fresh water tank happens in the same fashion. Furthermore you can easily see how much water is in the tanks, making it very easy to plan the trip ahead.
To conclude, Bliss Mobil units are extraordinary in many respects. The Loxone application found on the Garmin tablet allows you to easily have an overview of different parts of your unit and allows you to easily supervise and make the necessary adjustments.
