This touchscreen allows you to conveniently operate the entire Niko Home Control installation from one central point: switching and dimming the lighting, controlling the temperature, moving roller blinds and sun blinds to the position of your choice, monitoring the energy consumption and the status of the installation … Thanks to a built-in light sensor, the screen brightness adapts to the ambient light.
Thanks to the connection to the Niko Home Control external video unit, access control is also possible from now on (see External video unit). This way, you can answer incoming calls if you wish, and check missed calls. A feedback LED displays any missed calls, even when the device is in stand-by mode.
This new touchscreen (550-20102) entirely replaces the touchscreen 2 (550-20101). In an existing Niko Home Control installation, it can both replace and complement this touchscreen. Furthermore, its wired connection to the home network ensures a permanent connection. Please note: we recommend providing at least one touchscreen in each installation on top of the smartphones and/or tablets because a wired device is always more reliable than a mobile one. NB: the software for the touchscreen can be upgraded and downgraded. As a result, the touchscreen can be used faultlessly within both Niko Home Control I and Niko Home Control II installations.
The start screen shows an overview of selected controls on a dashboard.
The user decides which rooms and which controls are shown on the dashboard of each touchscreen. Only the functions or rooms that are relevant to that control point are shown. Touchscreen profiles are created in the dashboard of the programming software (consult the Niko Home Control software guide on our website for more information).
The menu structure on the left-hand side allows you to navigate between:
Refer to the Niko Home Control user manual for more information on each of these headings.
- Connect the touchscreen with the RJ45 port 1, 2 or 3 of the connected controller (or with a switch). Use a twisted pair cable (preferably a shielded FTP or STP). Both the touchscreen and the connected controller are equipped with a RJ45 port. Therefore the RJ45 connectors must be attached to the cable to connect the connected controller on the one side and the touchscreen on the other.
- The touchscreen can be supplied with power using Power over Ethernet (PoE) via the same twisted pair cable, for which you use the Niko PoE power supply (550-00502). Alternatively, you can provide a separate power supply cable, which you connect to a separate 24 Vdc power supply module in the electrical cabinet. In that case, you will need a 24 V power supply cable such as an SVV, JYSTY or TPVF cable in addition to the twisted pair cable.
- Connect the touchscreen with the Power-over-Ethernet power supply (550-00502). Use a twisted pair cable (preferably a shielded FTP or STP). Subsequently, connect the PoE power supply with a twisted pair cable to your network router.
Connect the smart hub to your router via a UTP cable or your Wi-Fi network (see Installing the smart hub).

Take into account the dimensions of the mounting bracket and the touchscreen in the images below to determine the exact location of the touchscreen on the wall.
- Mount the touchscreen:
- at eye level for optimum visibility (± 150 cm).
- Do NOT mount the touchscreen: in direct sunlight
- within the immediate vicinity of a fireplace, heater, or any other heat-generating source.
- in damp locations.
- Mount the touchscreen onto the wall using a standard flush-mounting box with a depth of at least 40 mm.
- Horizontally, the centre of the flush-mounting box must be at a distance of at least 130 mm from other walls, doors, etc.
- A total of ten touchscreens, smartphone or PC applications can be used per installation.
Use a drill (with a 6 mm diameter) to drill a hole of 40mm for each plug . If you are drilling in timber, you will not need to use the plugs, and only a drill hole of 20 mm with a 3 mm diameter will be required.
Follow the steps below to mount the touchscreen:
- Screw the mounting plate onto the wall using the four screws and plugs supplied.
- Mount the mounting plate in a central position on top of the flush-mounting box.
- Make sure the mounting plate is level.
- The unevenness of walls cannot exceed 2 mm
Connect the green screw connector supplied to the 24V power supply cable while observing the polarity as indicated on the back of the touchscreen.• If you are using a PoE power supply, you do not need a separate 24V power supply cable.
• Only use the Niko PoE power supply type IEEE802.3af.
• The green screw connector supplied (24V power supply) is suitable for a maximum copper diameter of 1.5 mm².
- Mount an RJ45 connector on the twisted pair cable (UTP, STP or FTP) according to T568B.
- Place the RJ45 connector and, if applicable, the 24V power supply cable, to the touchscreen.
- Hang the touchscreen onto the mounting plate and press it down against the wall in one smooth motion. Tighten the touchscreen using the Allen key supplied.
Programming the touchscreen
- Add the touchscreen to the dashboard of the programming software. All created actions are automatically linked to the touchscreen.
- Indicate in the touchscreen profile, which rooms and actions you wish to control via this touchscreen.
Consult the Niko Home Control software guide on our website for more information on creating touchscreen profi les. Initial activation
The touchscreen is immediately operational after connection. You do not need to take any further action unless you see a message to indicate that a software update with the USB stick is necessary.
Proceed as follows:
- Download the Niko Home Control touchscreen software 2.0 here.
- Save the software on a USB stick.
- Insert the USB stick into the port below the touchscreen. fi g. p. 17
- Follow the instructions on the touchscreen.
Later updates will be installed automatically. You do not need a USB stick for these. The touchscreen checks every day to see if the software is up-to-date. An active internet connection is required.
Use a soft dry or slightly damp cloth to clean the touchscreen. Do not use detergents or other cleaning agents.
|Nothing is displayed on the screen.||Communication error|
Check whether network communication is possible between the touchscreen and the connected controller.
|You cannot operate the installation|
Reset the touchscreen.
Use an unfolded paperclip to press the reset button. There is no need to disassemble the touchscreen.
