Switching FRITZ!DECT according to temperature

You can set up switching for FRITZ!DECT that is based on temperature. In this case either FRITZ!DECT itself or a radiator control (FRITZ!DECT 300, Comet DECT) measures the temperature. FRITZ!DECT's socket is then either switched on or off when the specified temperature is reached.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • FRITZ!DECT 200 can be operated in a temperature range from 0 °C – 40 °C. It can measure temperatures between 0 °C – 40 °C.
  • FRITZ!DECT 210 can be operated in a temperature range from -20 °C – +40 °C. It can measure temperatures between 0 °C – 40 °C.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Setting up switching based on temperature

First you must set up a group with the smart home devices whose sockets should be switched on or off automatically as soon as a certain temperature is reached. The group may also consist of a single FRITZ!DECT device. Next, set up switching for the group:

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click the "New Group" button.
  4. If you are asked to do so, select the option "Switching Actuators" and click on "OK".
  5. Enter a name for the group and select the smart home devices you would like to switch together in the group.
  6. Select the devices that you would like to switch in the group.
  7. Click the "OK" button.
    • The group is created.
  8. Enable the option "Switching a Group Automatically" and enable the option "Temperature".
  9. Enable the option "Heat" or "Cool", depending on the connected device (for example fan heaters or air-conditioning).
  10. Select the device on which the temperature is to be measured from the drop-down list "Temperature sensor". It is not necessary for the temperature sensor to belong to the group.

    Note:FRITZ!DECT or the radiator controls FRITZ!DECT 300 and Comet DECT measure the temperature at least once every 15 minutes and transmit the temperature measured to the FRITZ!Box every 2 minutes. You can see the temperature readings under "Home Network" > "Smart Home" in the user interface. 

  11. If you selected the option "Heat", set the "Comfort temperature" and "Cool-down temperature". If you selected the option "Cool", select the "Desired temperature". The sockets then switch on or off when the temperature you specified is reached.
  12. Select the desired switching times in the weekly calendar by clicking on them or holding down the left mouse button while you drag the mouse across the desired times.
  13. Click "OK" to save the settings.
