Digital black, 230 V


Digital black, 230 V is a completely customisable touchscreen which has an extremely user-friendly interface with clear symbols. The screen is automatically activated when your hand comes near, so you can switch or dim your lights, set moods, set ventilation modes, adjust blinds and sun blinds to the desired position, in one operation. In short, all possible types of controls are available in your Niko Home Control system. Do you have a Niko Home Control thermostat (550-13050)? Then you can easily set the temperature with the Digital black. With the Niko Home app not only can you choose which controls are displayed or where they are displayed on the screen, but also the way you navigate through your control screens. You can download this app for free in the respective app store for your mobile device.

The screen can be easily mounted in any standard flush-mounting box and is powered on 230 Vac. This 230 Vac variant is equipped with a switching contact 10 A (resistive), meaning that it can replace a conventional single-pole switch. In combination with the wireless smart hub for Niko Home Control (552-00001) and additional connected control points from the Niko Home Control range for traditional wiring, you can easily add additional automation to your traditional installation.

  • The Digital black can visualise up to 12 controls.
  • The Digital black is equipped with a switching contact 10 A (resistive), meaning that it can easily replace a conventional single-pole switch. You need an L and N wire available in the wall mounting box to make this Digital black 230 V working. See the Installing the Digital black, 230 V page for more details.
