  • Zigbee® is a wireless technology developed as an open and robust standard for smart home systems across the globe.

  • The 230V powered Zigbee® controls are launched during the 1st quarter of 2022. Four new functional controls will replace their Easywave# counterparts: a connected single switch 10 A, a connected double switch 2x10 A, a connected dimmer 2-wire 200 W, a connected motor control 3 A. Each functional Zigbee® device is now available in four mechanical base plate variants to serve different European markets: 60x71 mm with screws, 60x71 mm with claws, 71x71 mm with screws and 71x71 mm with claws.

  • Yes. The wireless smart hub for Niko Home Control (552-00001) remains to supports connected Easywave# products. The wireless smart hub for Niko Home Control supports following radio protocols: Zigbee® 3.0, Easywave#, Easywave and WiFi.

  • When replacing an existing Easywave# device with a Zigbee® control, it is important to verify that the wireless distance to another Zigbee® device does not exceed 10 m. We recommend measuring and testing the maximum wireless range before final installation.

  • The Niko connected Zigbee® products are identified by an article number within the 552-series whereas Easywave# devices carry an article number that is found within the 551-series.

  • The maximum indoor wireless range of a Zigbee® device is 10 m. Note that this range can vary and depends mainly on three aspects of a building or room:

  • Mesh networking is a feature that is supported by 230V Zigbee® devices to receive signals and spreading them out to other connected Zigbee® devices. This way, the wireless distance can be extended beyond 10 m and a robust and reliable wireless communication system can be established.

  • Niko connected Zigbee® products are upgraded automatically in Niko Home Control systems only. The firmware updates are done Over-The-Air (OTA).

  • Consult the third-party manufacturer’s manual for more information on the possibility to use third party Zigbee® devices in their home automation system. The Niko connected Zigbee® devices behave in third party networks like home automation device types that support the mandatory Zigbee® clusters and commands.

  • Adding a Zigbee® device can be done via the Niko Home Control programming software. Connect the laptop to the Niko Home Control system, open a project and go to the Create overview window...
