Touchscreen 2

This touchscreen cannot be used in installations with a connected controller light (550-00002).


Thanks to the Niko Home Control touchscreen 2, access control is also possible via the Niko Home Control external video unit (see External video unit). This gives the resident direct control over the access door or gate. He can see on the screen who is ringing the doorbell and can decide whether or not to answer the call. He can also see who has been at the door during his absence: the built-in HD camera on the external video unit automatically starts recording 10 seconds before someone rings.

Thanks to this wired connection to the home network you can always count on this touchscreen. We recommend providing at least one touchscreen 2 in the installation, on top of the mobile devices.

This touchscreen 2 offers residents a more user-friendly interface to operate all functions within their Niko Home Control installation. The symbol displayed next to each action represents the current status of that action. Like its predecessor, this touchscreen also provides a detailed overview of the electricity, gas and water consumption in the home, provided that these functions have been included in the installation.



The symbols on the touchscreen 2 are used by the resident to operate the functions that you assigned while programming the installation. The resident can also use the touchscreen to request more information about the electricity, gas and water consumption in the home.

Using the touchscreen 2

1    Touch the touchscreen 2.

The start screen will appear. If you do not touch the screen during 1 minute, the display will be dimmed to reduce energy consumption.

2    Touch the corresponding tab to select “control”, “favourites”, “energy”, "access" or “settings".

Using the “control” tab

1    Select the “control” tab.

2   Select the location of your choice on the left-hand side.

3    Select the function you wish to activate or deactivate on the right-hand side.

Using the “favourites” tab

To be able to use favourites, each of these favourites must have been entered first for each action via the “control” tab.

1    Select the “favourites” tab.

2    Select the function you wish to control.

Using the “energy” tab

  • The installation must be fitted with an electricity measuring module (see Electricity measuring modules) or a pulse counter (see Pulse counter) to be able to display the measuring data for gas, water and electricity.
  • If you are only using a pulse counter, live data for gas, water and electricity consumption will not be available.

1    Select the “energy” tab.

2    Select the measurement you wish to see: electricity, gas or water.

3    Select a period: live, day, week, month or year.

4    Select the display for the chosen period: consumption or cost (you cannot choose a display in EUR for a live measurement).

5    Compare two consumption periods of an energy measurement using the button “split view” at the top right.

Using the “Access” tab

1    Select the “access” tab.

2    Do one of the following:

  • Select “recent calls” to view the latest calls of all touch buttons. You can also view the video recording per call.
  • Select “chime sound” to switch off the sound of the chime (if present in the installation).
  • Select “ringtone sound” to switch off the ringtone sound.
  • Select “ringtone” to adjust the volume of the ringtone.

Using the “settings” tab

1    Select the “settings” tab.

2    Do one of the following:

  • Select “notifications” to consult the log book of notifications.
  • Select “access control” to set the external video unit(s) and/or modify the settings, or to select which chime to sound along with the touchscreen 2 when someone rings the bell.
  • Select “info” to view the system information.
  • Select “terms and conditions” to view the usage conditions.
  • Select “reset” to reset all external video unit settings to their factory settings. All set favourite actions, the symbols selected by the resident for each location and the order of the actions per location disappear.


  • Connect the touchscreen with the RJ45 port 1, 2 or 3 of the connected controller. Use a twisted pair cable (preferably a shielded FTP or STP). Both the touchscreen 2 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 2 on the other.
  • The touchscreen 2 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 (550-00501). 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, TPVF or UTP cable in addition to the twisted pair cable.

Wiring diagrams

Take into account the dimensions of the mounting bracket and the touchscreen in the images below to determine the exact location of the touchscreen 2 on the wall.

Horizontally, the centre of the flush-mounting box must be at a distance of at least 130 mm from other walls, doors, etc.

Mounting bracket dimensions

  • Mount the touchscreen 2:
    • 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.
  • The touchscreen 2 itself is not suitable for flush mounting. Mount the touchscreen onto the wall using a standard flush-mounting box with a depth of at least 40 mm.
  • 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 40 mm for each connector. If you are drilling in wood, you will not need to use the connectors, and only a drill hole of 20 mm with a 3 mm diameter will be required.

Follow the steps below to mount the touchscreen 2:

1    Screw the mounting plate onto the wall using the four screws and connectors supplied. 

  • Mount the mounting bracket in a central position on top of the flush-mounting box.
  • Make sure the mounting bracket is level.
  • The unevenness of walls cannot exceed 2 mm.

2    Connect the green screw connector supplied to the 24 V power supply cable while observing the polarity as indicated on the back of the touchscreen 2.

  • If you are using a PoE power supply, you do not need a separate 24 V power supply cable.
  • Only use the Niko PoE power supply type IEEE802.3af.
  • The green screw connector supplied (24 V power supply) is suitable for a maximum copper diameter of 1.5 mm².

3    Mount a RJ45 connector on the twisted pair cable (UTP, STP or FTP) according to T568B.

4    Place the RJ45 connector and, if applicable, the 24 V power supply cable, to the touchscreen 2.

5    Hang the touchscreen 2 onto the mounting bracket and press it down against the wall in one smooth motion.

6    Tighten the touchscreen 2 using the hexagon key supplied and remove the protective foil.

Programming the touchscreen 2

  • Add the touchscreen 2 at the beginning of the project.
  • The touchscreen can display a maximum of 256 actions across 100 locations.
  • Several touchscreens 2 used in one single installation cannot be programmed differently (except for access control).

When you add the touchscreen 2 to the project of the installation via the programming software, all pre-programmed actions will automatically be linked to the touchscreen.

The programming software allows you to create locations and link actions to each location. This will give you a better overview of the home. If an action is not linked to a location, the software will link the action to a virtual location. When all actions have been linked, click the touch icon to open the overview. In this overview, you can remove any actions that you do not want to be displayed on the touchscreen.

Touchscreen  2 maintenance

Use a soft dry or slightly damp cloth to clean the touchscreen 2. Do not use detergents or other cleaning agents.




Possible cause


Nothing is displayed on the screen.

Communication error

Check whether network communication is possible between the touchscreen 2 and the connected controller.

You cannot operate the installation.

Reset the touchscreen 2.

Use an unfolded paperclip to press the reset button. There is no need to disassemble the touchscreen 2.
