"I just got an email from my washing machine." That's no joke, but a convenient feature. Thanks to Smart Home by AVM you can actually stay in touch with your home appliance and save money while you're at it!
You need just two things: a current FRITZ!Box with DECT function and the smart plug FRITZ!DECT 200, which the washing machine connects to. Alternatively, you can use FRITZ!Powerline 546E, which is also equipped with a smart plug. You can look at the power consumption of your washing machine after the laundry is finished or watch the current electrical output during the process over the user interface of your FRITZ!Box. Now, you can set up a rule so the FRITZ!DECT 200 is turned off automatically when power consumption falls under a previously defined limit, for example three minutes.
Subject: Your laundry is done!
But that's not all: You can also set up push service for a certain email account on your FRITZ!Box that notifies you about every switching event of the plug. Simply type in your address and activate the push service for emails to your smartphone and FRITZ!Box. That way you'll know when the laundry is done and power consumption drops.
A convenient tool with advantages for both the power consumption and your daily routine. Instead of waiting for the laundry, you can get other things done in the meantime. Smart Home not only supports you in your daily routine, but enriches it with more flexibility and convenience. Plus, it helps to identify big power consumers so you can exchange them for eco-friendly models.
