What can you do with Niko Home Control?

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

  • Check and control the room temperature
  • Check the outside temperature
  • Choose the heating program mode (e.g. home, away)
  • Choose the operation mode (e.g. summer, winter, frost guard)
  • Check and boost the temperature of the hot water system

     

The Vaillant 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 the simple press of a button (e.g. turn off all the lights and reduce the set point temperature when pressing the leaving the house button).

  • The available functionality within Niko Home Control depends upon the specific installation features of the Vaillant system.
  • You can always use the Vaillant vSMART Control app (android or iOS) for more advanced settings and configurations.
