Get into the festive mood with FRITZ!

With the FRITZ! products from AVM it really is the most wonderful time of the year. This Christmas, FRITZ!OS 7 blankets every room in wireless LAN, the FRITZ!DECT 210 smart plug controls the holiday lights while the FRITZ!Box Media Server fills the home with classic Christmas tunes. Read on to find out more.

Wireless for all - thanks to FRITZ!OS 7

The festive season is all about family, but when the house is full over Christmas you quickly notice if there are WiFi weak spots and where they are. To ensure that all family members can surf wirelessly even in the furthest corner of the house, FRITZ!OS 7 is available free of charge for a number of FRITZ!WLAN repeaters and FRITZ!powerline products - just in time for the Advent season! The major update offers higher speeds, improved coverage and security, making the Mesh WiFi from FRITZ! even more convenient and easy to use. Navigate to the Mesh Overview in your FRITZ!Box to carry out the update.

Christmas lights the Smart Home way

The FRITZ!DECT 210 smart plug together with a motion sensor, for example from Deutsche Telekom, makes managing outdoor lighting a breeze, perfect for those cold winter evenings. The first thing you need to do is register the motion sensor and the smart plug on the FRITZ!Box. The motion sensor then needs to be mounted to the wall and the outdoor lighting connected to the FRITZ!DECT 210.  All that's left to do is set up a schedule in the motion sensor's Smart Home profile and enter for how long you would like the lights to stay on. As soon as someone approaches the front door, the light will automatically turn on for the specified time.

Stream your festive playlist from the FRITZ!Box

Did you know you can stream this year's Christmas playlist on your FRITZ!Box? With the FRITZ!Box Media Server, streaming internet radio stations is as easy as (a mince) pie. Just head to the the "Home Network" area of the FRITZ!Box user interface to activate the media server. In the "Internet Radio" tab you can select a radio station or add a new one. The playlists or radio station can now be played directly through a wireless speaker, a FRITZ!Fon or the FRITZ!App Media. For more information, check out our handy Service page.
