DALI in Niko Home Control - What types of DALI devices are supported?
At present, you can use DALI types DT0 through DT7 with the Broadcast and Addressable modules.

Colour control is possible with NHC DALI-2 Addressable modules when for example DT6 LED drivers support an operating mode with dual DALI addresses.
LED drivers with a dual DALI addressing mode are detected as two DALI devices by NHC DALI-2 addressable modules.
One DALI address can then be configured to change the light intensity, and the other DALI address can be set to change the color or color temperature.
Example LED drivers with a dual DALI addressing are the products from Lunatone with operating mode Balance&Dim or Color&Dim.
