The pulse counter allows you to monitor gas, water and electricity consumption or electricity production. The module has three pulse inputs and can be connected to up to three meters. You connect the module to the pulse output of a gas, water or electricity meter. Only one gas meter and one water meter can be connected to each installation. The scale factor of the pulses (e.g. 1 pulse = 10 litres) and the meter type (gas, water or electricity) can be selected via the programming software. The consumption and, if necessary, also the production will appear on the eco-display. Using the touchscreen or control app, residents can easily monitor their consumption or production and detect deviations. The module is provided with one indication LED and one status LED.
For a newly constructed dwelling, you can ask the building supervisor to request a gas or water meter with pulse output from the energy supplier.
Pulse counter for Niko Home Control
This module, in combination with the eco display, measures your gas, water or electricity consumption. The resulting measurements are shown on the display. Using the eco display or the energy software, you can monitor the consumption or production and detect deviations. In order to obtain a detailed analysis and history, the system must be equipped with an IP module that logs and saves all of the measured data. The module can be connected to three different meters and is equipped with one feedback LED per channel and one status LED.
Pulse counter for Niko Home Control.
- Function: The pulse counter allows you to monitor gas, water and electricity consumption as well as electricity production.
This module has three pulse inputs. It can therefore connected to up to three metres. The pulse counter counts the pulses and converts the sum into m³ or kWh. The scale factor of the pulses (e.g. 1 pulse = 10 litres) and the meter type (gas, water or electricity) can be selected via the programming software. The eco-display shows the total electricity consumption and the electricity production, if applicable. If you want to keep track of your home’s past electricity consumption, then the installation must be fitted with an IP module that logs the measuring data. A detailed overview of these data can be requested via the touchscreen, a smartphone or the Niko Home Control energy software.
If the Niko Home Control installation is fitted with an IP module, then this module can be used to store measuring data. How long the IP module will store this data for will depend on the number of channels in the installation. An overview is provided in the table below. If the resident wishes to store this data for an extended period of time, then he or she must back up this data using the Niko Home Control energy software before the existing data will be overwritten.
Use the programming software to select the currency of your choice: EUR or GBP. Gas and water consumption are expressed in m³, and electricity in kWh. The following settings can be selected per channel:
- channel name.
- channel type: gas, water, electricity.
- pulse conversion factor: 1 - 1000 pulses/m³ for gas and water, 1 - 10 000 pulses/kWh for electricity.
- for electricity: global, consumer, amount generated.
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.
- maximum pulse frequency per input: 10 Hz
- minimum pulse duration: 30 ms
- only for meters with a pulse output isolated from the mains in accordance with SELV requirements
- measuring units only for information purposes, not valid for invoicing
- Sliding contact to connect the module to the following module on the DIN rail

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.
