The IP interface connects the Niko Home Control installation to a local IP network. Possible applications: establishing a connection with the Niko Home Control touchscreen, with a smartphone or tablet via the WiFi router, with the user software stored on a local network computer and with a gateway to control the Niko Home Control installation via a smartphone or tablet from outside the home as well. The IP interface is also required for logging energy data.



The IP interface is connected to the resident’s home network via the RJ45 port. An IP address will be assigned to the IP interface by the network router. The computer, touchscreen(s) and external IP system(s) connected to the same network can then communicate with the installation via the IP interface.

  • The IP interface is not a router and does not assign IP addresses to other IP devices.
  • Based on the user software, the resident can modify certain settings via the IP interface.
  • Based on the energy software, the resident can view all energy consumption and energy production data logged by the system.

Connecting and mounting the IP interface

  • Ensure that the installation is disconnected from the mains.
  • Ensure that the RJ45 port is easy to reach.
  • Use a shielded network cable and keep it separate from 230 V cables to avoid crosstalk. Run the network cable alongside the SELV cables, for instance.
  • Preferably use an STP cable.
  • Do not connect more than 10 Niko Home Control components to the IP interface.
  • Incorporate a wireless router or wireless access point if you want to communicate with the IP interface via a smartphone. The end-user must ensure that the WiFi network is secure.

Follow the steps below to mount the IP interface:

1    Press the IP interface onto the DIN rail until it clicks into place. Preferably position the IP interface at the bottom of the electrical cabinet.Follow the steps below to mount the IP interface:

2    Connect the network cable to the RJ45 port.

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

You can use the Niko Media Kit Ethernet over twisted pair to set up the IP network
