Release notes version 2.13.4 for touchscreen 2 and 3

Software version and release date

Niko Home Control programming software version 2.13.4. This software is used for upgrading a second-generation (550-20101) or third-generation (550-20102) touchscreen in a Niko Home Control installation.

Release date  

This upgrade is provided as an automatic upgrade of the programming software at start-up and can also be downloaded from the Niko website.

System requirements 

  • A minimum of 4 GB RAM is recommended
  • Compatible with Windows 10 or a more recent version. We recommend installing all official Windows updates.
  • Minimum screen resolution: 1366 x 768. The programming software will give a warning message when it is opened on a lower resolution screen.

When should you use it?

Niko strongly recommends upgrading all Niko Home Control II installations to this version to guarantee the correct functioning of the installation. An upgrade is specifically recommended if the installation requires one of the following features or bug fixes:

New features

Compared to version 2.13.3:

  • Availability of a new operating system that supports audio codec  

Bug fixing

Compared to version 2.13.3:

• Bug fix for a possible touchscreen 3 crash in installations that include the analogue external video unit SO-596-01  

How do you install it?

Download the software from the Niko website.

Unzip the file until you get two ZIP files (one for each generation of the touchscreen).
Copy both zip files to an empty FAT32 formatted USB stick and plug the USB stick in the USB port at the bottom of the touchscreen.
After this upgrade, your touchscreen will no longer work in a Niko Home Control I installation.
