All off with push button from software version 1.13.1 onwards


This step-by-step plan explains how to program an 'all off' action in the Niko Home Control software. In our example, we turn off all the lights with one button. The lamp in the hallway will only go off after a delay of two minutes so that the end customer has sufficient time to leave the home.

Starting point

The starting point for this step-by-step plan is a project which already encompasses Project information, for which a plan was already drawn up or uploaded and where several inputs, outputs and actions have already been added.

Run through the steps in Adding a new project and then Drawing a plan or Upload a background image if there is no existing project.

Step 1: Add an input

In our example, we want to turn off all the lights with a single push button.

  • Go to Creation in the menu bar at the top.

  • Click on add an input in order to add the push button to the installation.
  • Click on single push button in the list of options in the right-hand window.
    The input appears on the plan.
  • Drag the push button to the correct location on the plan.
  • Give the input a name.
  • Choose the location of the input from the list.

  • Click on save to return to the Creation start screen.

Step 2: Add an 'All off' action.

  • In the right-hand window, click on add an action.
  • Give the action a name.
  • Choose the action's location from the list.

  • Click on continue to go to the Players tab.

Step 3: Add players to the 'All off' action.

  • In the right-hand window, under Choose players for this action, click on Choose players.
    The pop-up screen Players for 'All off' will appear.

You can now see all of the inputs and outputs that you can select. In the left-hand column, there are inputs; in the right-hand column, there are outputs. Both are sorted according to their location.
Above the columns, you can use the plus sign in front of All lamps or All outputs to select all available lights or outputs with one click. You can also click on the plus sign in front of outputs, in any location, to select all outputs in that location.

  • In the left-hand column, click on the plus sign in front of the input you wish to select. In our example, we select All_off in the Hallway.
  • Select the outputs that you wish to add to the 'All off' action. In our example, we click on the plus sign at the top for All lamps.
  • Click on close at the bottom.

On the plan, all lights are added to the All off action. In the right-hand window, you can see an overview of all of the linked players.

Tip. Would you like to delete an output? Then click on the minus next to the linked output.

  • Have all outputs been added to the action? Then click on continue to define the basic behaviour.

Step 4: Define the basic behaviour

The Basic behaviour tab for the action All off is now selected. At the top of the right-hand window, you can set the behaviour for the action. In the pop-up menu behind The behaviour is..., you can choose from

  • switch on/off
  • switch off
  • switch on
  • switch on/off randomly

Switch on/off is the default selection, that is why you see the start and stop behaviour in front of each output.

  • Click the pop-up menu behind The behaviour is ... to open and select switch off.
    A pop-up screen which explains the behaviour will appear.
  • Click on OK.

In our example we would like the lamp in the hallway to stay on for 2 minutes when the 'all off' push button is pressed. 

  • Change the start moment of the desired output to 2 minutes.

  • Click on continue to go to the Conditions tab.
  • Click on continue to go to the Time automation tab. 
  • Click on save to return to the Creation start screen.


You have programmed an 'All off' button.
