Products on bus wiring

Are you building a new house or extensively renovating your current home, and replacing the electrical wiring? Then let Niko Home Control install bus wiring. Bus wiring is not just simple wiring but also facilitates complete home automation, with endless possibilities and the flexibility to expand the system, if your family circumstances change for example.

During the electrical works, your installer can ensure you have all the wiring you need to live in a smart, comfortable and safe house and also save energy. With intuitive displays, such as mood controls and the eco-display, you can adapt your electrical installation to your precise requirements. And if you wish to change or expand your controls at a later date, the system flexibility means it's not a problem.

Bus wiring uses cables that carry electricity but also electronic signals. They enable all of the elements of your electrical installation to communicate with one another and make your installation smart. For example, you could use 1 switch in your living room to control the lights in your bedrooms too. The same switch could also be reprogrammed at a later date to turn on the lights in the garden as well.

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, 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, 24 V

Digital black is a customisable control screen for Niko Home Control with an extremely user-friendly interface with 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, and 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 24 V 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 (550-00150) or switching module (550-00103 or 550-00106) programmed for electrical heating. Do you have an active connection with one of our heating partners? Then you can easily set the temperature with Digital black. When 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 you can 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 the Google Play store. Digital black can be easily mounted in any standard flush-mounting box using the familiar claw or screw fixing and is powered by a separate 24 Vdc supply (e.g. 340-00050). The screen communicates via your Wi-Fi network with the rest of your Niko Home Control system. You need an active internet connection to activate Digital black. This internet connection ensures that your Digital black and Niko Home Control installation are always up-to-date and have the most recent functionalities.

HVAC thermostat

You install the HVAC thermostat in any room that has an indoor unit of the VRV, VRF or multi-split air conditioning system (HVAC system). The HVAC thermostat controls the heating or cooling of the room in which it is installed. You can modify the temperature and adjust the ventilation speed. As Niko Home Control controls the heating or cooling in different rooms, the resident can considerably save energy by linking the HVAC thermostat, for example, to the eco-function (all off) or calendar-based functions. The resident will use the PROTECT mode for long-term absences: the room temperature will be maintained between a minimum and maximum value. The communication with the HVAC system is established via the HVAC interface (CoolMaster).

Power supply

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.
