- Check whether your application is in the same subnet as the connected controller or the wireless smart hub.

Your Hobby API token is valid for one year.
You can find the expiry date for your token on the web portal (for versions before 2.17) or on the Niko Home Control programming software (for versions starting from 2.17) .
