Hi guys, I'm needing some help to figure out how to make the most of smart wiring for my new build. Network I think is all sorted. Where I'm getting stuck is how to make the most of power circuits. Favouring the Loxone system for lighting/heating/security/audio. But not found a neat solution for control of sockets - I need option to control selected outlets for lighting - table lights, xmas lights etc. where i need ability to schedule on/off etc. I don't like the idea of stand alone plug in smart outlets and trying to find an integral option for the sockets. I've looked at various Smart sockets that seem to have the required features but trying to avoid multiple systems/apps with multiple control points. Anybody found a way to connect all these together in a common interface?
