RF-interface Easywave


The RF Interface Easywave lets you use Niko wireless Easywave controls in the Niko Home Control installation. This module receives Easywave radio signals, which allows the use of controls:

  • where this would not normally be possible, e.g. on glass or concrete surfaces.
  • for the renovation of heritage-listed buildings.
  • for expansions of existing installations where drilling or channelling work is not permitted.
  • in office areas with movable partition walls.
  • when complex cabling is to be avoided



This modular receiver allows a connection to be established between Niko wireless Easywave controls and the Niko Home Control installation. The remote control or wireless control operates on the basis of signal transmission via radio waves on the licence-free ISM frequency band 868.3 MHz according to the European standard. Only products that do not continuously transmit are permitted at this frequency, meaning 1% per hour or 36 seconds. As a result, the chance of interference is minimal.

The system consists of a modular set-up including transmitters and one receiver. The wall transmitters are shaped like switches and are mounted onto the wall. The hand-held transmitters are shaped like traditional remote controls.

In particular, these products comply with the European guideline 1999/5/EG on radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment, also known as the R&TTE Directive.

 Use single-button controls only. Program a different button for each action.

Signal range

The operation of devices with a remote control, such as a TV or video and audio devices, is not disrupted by an Easywave hand-held transmitter. The hand-held transmitter does not have to be aimed towards the wireless Easywave receiver. The indoor range is ± 30 m. In open spaces the range reaches 100 m. The range of the hand-held transmitter depends on the materials used in the residence.

A diagnostic device (05-370) can be used to determine the wireless signal strength in an environment. The appliance recognizes all 868.3 Mhz signals. The nine LEDs on the device will indicate the quality of the signals received or the strength of any interrupting signals. This allows you to determine whether or not the signal range of the hand-held transmitter will meet your needs.


The following wireless Easywave switches/controls are compatible for use with the RF interface Easywave:

  • switch with two control buttons (410-00001)
  • switch with four control buttons (410-00002)
  • switch with eight control buttons (410-00003)
  • mini RF hand-held transmitter with one channel, one control button (05-311)
  • remote control with five channels, three control buttons (05-313)
  • mini RF hand-held transmitter with one channel, four control buttons (05-314)
  • mini transmitter interface with battery (05-315)


Wiring diagram

Follow the steps below to install the module:

  • Ensure that the installation is disconnected from the mains.
  • Position the antenna outside the electrical cabinet on a metallic surface of minimum 15 x 15 cm for a maximum signal range.

1. Press the module onto the DIN rail until it clicks into place.

2. Connect the external antenna (supplied in the box) to the module. The external antenna includes a connection cable of 2 m.

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

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.






Blinks – one pulse per two seconds.
