The Loxone user interface can be viewed in demonstration mode if you have an iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone or Android tablet. Simply go to the App store, search for Loxone and download the App, which is free. Start up the App and one of the options is to connect to the demo site at the Loxone home office. This gives an excellent idea of what the remote interface can do.
