Niko Home Control API - I cannot connect to the Hobby API from the connected controller or the wireless smart hub.

You can access the documentation for the Hobby API on the web portal.
In Connected services, in the overview of the active services, click on the Hobby API icon.
Here, you can find the technical information you need to establish an API connection.

 You can find a number of suggestions for discovering the problem below:

  • Does your connected controller or wireless smart hub have the right software version?
    The Hobby API is available from software version 2.5.1 and only on the connected controller for Niko Home Control II and the wireless smart hub.
    You can find the software version in the Niko Home Control programming software in the Dashboard menu. You can download the most recent version of the programming software on our
    website.
  • Check whether your application is in the same subnet as the connected controller or the wireless smart hub.
    This is because the Hobby API is available locally on your connected controller for Niko Home Control II or your wireless smart hub.
  • Are the authentication details (API token and username) correct?
    On the
    web portal, in Connected services, click on the Hobby API icon to check the token and the username.

  • Could your Hobby API token have expired?
