It is pronounced DEE-min.  Do you pronounce encyclopaedia: en-ceye-cloh-PAY-dee-uh? or orthopaedic: or-tho-PAY-dic?

From Wikipedia:


The word daemon is an alternative spelling of demon,[3] and is pronounced /ˈdiːmən/ DEE-mən. In the context of computer software, the original pronunciation /ˈdiːmən/ has drifted to /ˈdeɪmən/ DAY-mən for some speakers.[1]
