The power supply, in combination with the connected controller, provides an extra input voltage of 26 V to the bus, modules and controls. An extra power supply is only necessary in installations for which the power of the built-in power supply of the connected controller is insufficient. Up to 2 extra power supplies can be connected to installations with a connected controller. The MASTER button is not used, as the built-in power supply of the connected controller is always the master. For more information on the required number of power supplies, you can consult the installation manual.
Power supply for Niko Home Control
This module is used to supply power to the modules and controls of the Niko Home Control installation. An LED indicates the status and the bus activity. The number of power supply modules needed for a specific installation can be found in the user manual.
Power supply for Niko Home Control.
- Function: The power supply module provides an input voltage of 26 V DC to the bus, the modules and the controls of the installation. Several power supply modules can be connected in parallel in one single installation.
Each power supply has a capacity of 10 W. Determine the exact number of power supplies required prior to commencing the installation process.
A power supply or a rail coupler must be used at the left beginning of every DIN rail.
The following rule of thumb can be applied to calculate the number of power supplies required: a maximum of 24 modules inside the electrical cabinet and a maximum of 70 controls (of which 20 with status LED) per power supply. Depending on the size and layout of your installation, you will need to install one, two or three power supplies.
When several power supply modules are used in a single electrical installation, you can manually select one of these modules to act as the master power supply. The remaining power supply modules will then act as secondary modules. One of the power supply modules will automatically be selected as the master if no manual selection is made. The power supply supplies voltage to the bus, the modules and the controls. The secondary power supplies supply voltage to the modules but not to the bus. The maximum permitted cable length between the master power supply and the control points must be observed. Should the master power supply module become defective, then one of the secondary power supplies will automatically be selected as the new master. This may cause certain functions to become inoperable.
When the module is functioning properly, the STATUS LED will light up in TEST mode only. If one or several errors occur, the LED will blink to indicate the error code of the error with the highest priority. This module has short circuit, over-voltage, faulty connection and overheating protection

Connected controller for Niko Home Control II
The connected controller is the central module of every Niko Home Control installation for bus wiring. This module contains firmware that can only be programmed with the Niko Home Control programming software 2.1.1 or higher. It covers all basic functions on which a Niko Home Control installation is built. The basic functions include: • The intelligence directing the logic to the installation. Through the configuration software, the logic is saved locally on the controller. • The power supply module providing an input voltage of 26 V to the bus, the cabinet modules and the controls. Depending on the size of the installation, separate power supply modules can be added. • The connection to Niko Home Control IP devices such as touchscreens and external video units. A built-in router allows the user to connect up to 3 devices directly to the controller. With an extra switch, this number can be increased. • The connection to the internet. This enables the user to control the installation both indoors and outdoors (via mobile networks such as 3G, 4G, GPRS or Wi-Fi hotspot) using mobile devices (smartphones and tablets with iOS or Android). The module has a TEST button to verify the proper functioning and status of all other modules. Each installation must consist of one connected controller. After registration on https://mynikohomecontrol.niko.eu, your installation is connected, enabling control through the app via your smartphone and tablet, and you can enjoy the Niko services for upgrade or diagnosis of the installation.
Digital black, connected customisable control screen for Niko Home Control, 24 V
Digital black is a completely customisable control screen for Niko Home Control with an extremely user-friendly interface featuring clear symbols. The screen is automatically activated when your hand comes near. That way, you can switch or dim your lights, set scenes, set ventilation modes, adjust blinds and sunblinds to the desired position, in one operation. In short, all possible Niko Home Control control types are available. As this Digital black 24V variant is equipped with a temperature sensor and algorithm, it can be programmed as a zone-thermostat when linked to a Niko Home Control heating cooling module (ref. 550-00150) or switching module (ref. 550-00103 or 550-00106) programmed for electrical heating. Do you have extra thermostats (550-1305x) or an active connection with one of our heating partners? Then you can easily set the temperature with the Digital black. When the Digital black is used as a thermostat, you define the set points and week programs in the Niko Home app. With the Niko Home app not only can you choose which controls are displayed or where they are displayed on the screen, but also the way you navigate through your control screens. You can download this app for free in the app store or play store. The screen can be easily mounted in any standard flush-mounting box using the familiar claw or screw fixing and is powered by a separate 24V DC supply (e.g. 340-00050). The screen communicates via your WiFi network with the rest of your Niko Home Control system. You need an active internet connection to activate the screen. This internet connection ensures that your screen and Niko Home Control installation are always up-to-date, and have the most recent functionalities.
Wireless bridge for Niko Home Control
This bus interface enables you to integrate and operate all Niko Home Control products for traditional wiring within a bus wiring installation. This way, the wireless bridge provides you with complete flexibility and allows you to benefit from the full set of Niko Home Control functionalities. You can now easily expand your bus wiring installation with the Niko Home Control devices from the Zigbee® range, which could initially only be used in an installation for traditional wiring with a smart hub. Consult the chapter "Controls for traditional wiring" to view all compatible wireless controls. Its clever design allows you to connect the wireless bridge with minimal effort. Simply plug it into the USB port of the connected controller, no need for additional wiring or an external power supply. The configuration can also be performed in the same familiar manner via the user-friendly Niko Home Control programming software. Easily manage and control your installation via the Niko Home app.
