Mounting  instructions

One controller is required per installation. A second controller may be used to operate as a back-up. Follow the steps below to mount the controller:

  • Ensure that the installation is disconnected from the power mains
  • Mount the controller in a visible location and ensure that the RJ45 port is easily accessible.

1    Press the controller onto the DIN rail until it clicks into place. Preferably position the controller right next to the power supply module.

2    Mount the other modules onto the rail, from left to right.

When there is no room left on the rail or the maximum number of 12 modules per rail has been reached, you simply continue on the rail above.

A power supply or a rail coupler must be used at the left beginning of every DIN rail.

3    Connect the controller to the module before it. Slide the sliding contact of this module to the right until it clicks into the controller. This will ensure that the bus and the power supply are connected.

Testing the installation

Only the POWER LED of the power supply module and the ETHERNET LED of the IP module will be lit when the Niko Home Control installation is functioning properly. The remaining LEDs are not lit, to help save energy. If an error occurs, simply switch the installation to TEST mode to check the status of the modules.

First press the TEST button on the controller to switch the installation to TEST mode. The STATUS LEDS indicate the status of each module and each output.

Exit TEST mode by pressing the TEST button once more. Alternatively, the installation will automatically exit TEST mode if no buttons are pressed during a two-minute interval.

Programming the installation manually

A number of basic functions can be temporarily programmed manually. This allows you to test the lighting options or operate the roll-down shutters during the construction of your dwelling.

Follow the steps below to manually program the installation:

1    Connect the installation to the mains power supply.

2    Press the TEST button and verify that the STATUS LED of each module lights up.

3    Press the PROG button.

The PROG LED lights up and the controller is in manual PROGRAM mode.

4    Press the action button to which you will assign the output of your choice.

This only applies to Niko Home Control action buttons. A potential-free push button connected via the push-button interface cannot be programmed manually.

5    Press the button of the contact on the module that you wish to connect. For example, press button one or button two on the dimming module.

6    Press the PROG button.

The PROG LED is no longer lit and the controller exits manual PROGRAM mode. Repeat steps 3 to 6 for each function you wish to program.

    • The manually programmed outputs will be overwritten once you start programming the installation via computer.
    • As soon as the installation has been programmed via computer, you can no longer program the installation manually.
    • If you manually operate outputs via the buttons on the modules, the controller may modify your input at any time.

Programming the installation

Program the installation after it has been completed. If the installation is expanded and additional modules are added, you will need to reprogram the installation.

Follow the steps below to program the installation:

1    Connect the installation to the mains power supply.

2    Press the TEST button and verify that the STATUS LED of each module lights up.

3    Connect the computer to the controller via the RJ45 port.

4    Start up the programming software and select your installation project.

5    Select “Realisation” from the menu bar and follow the on-screen instructions until all the steps of the programming process are completed.

6    Disconnect the computer from the controller.

All programmed outputs are stored in the controller. Create a back-up on your computer and provide the resident with a copy.

Error codes

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. The table below provides an overview of all error codes.
