Duco and Niko Home Control

For an installation with version 2.16 or earlier, the link between Niko Home Control and Duco can be activated and deactivated on

What can you do with Niko Home Control?

By using Niko Home Control with your DucoBox, you can do the following:

  • Control the ventilation speed

  • Choose the ventilation program mode (e.g. away, audio)

  • Check the CO2 concentration

  • Check the relative humidity level

  • Boost the ventilation

The Duco functions automatically appear in your Niko Home Control apps and your touchscreens after you activate the link between both systems. These functions can also be combined in routines/actions to control multiple items simultaneously at a simple press of a button (e.g. turn off all the lights and activate the ventilation boost to refresh the indoor air when pressing the leaving the house button).

  • The available functionality within Niko Home Control depends upon the specific installation features of the DucoBox.

  • You can always use the Duco Ventilation app for more advanced settings and configurations.

  • can be added to the DucoBox Focus, only when the printed circuit board shows version 2017.

You can change the hostname on the display e.g. in case of two Ducoboxes you can use Duco001 and Duco002. For more information, see your Duco manual.
