Spring with FRITZ!: The Smart Home

The days growing longer and warmer lures us outside to enjoy the spectacle of awakening nature. During this period Smart Home offers a plethora of possibilities to make everyday life more comfortable and efficient.

Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee by switching on the coffee machine inserted in the FRITZ!DECT 200 smart plug while you're still in bed. This way your coffee will be ready by the time you get to the kitchen. And you can bring the spring inside by having your roller shutters open automatically as the sun rises. These automations and others can be created using scenes and routines.

After a cycling tour through springtime nature you can charge your e-bike efficiently. Here, too, you have a smart assistant in the switchable FRITZ!DECT 210 plug. Find out more in the Charge your e-bike battery the right way with FRITZ! article.

Move your home office outside and enjoy the fresh air. With the FRITZ!Repeater and FRITZ!Powerline you can extend your Wi-Fi network onto the patio for a stable internet connection outdoors. After work you can spend the rest of the day in the backyard reading or streaming music on your tablet. If you enjoy spending time outside with friends, it's easy to share the Wi-Fi network with them efficiently. Find out more about smart Wi-Fi sharing.

Illuminate your garden with atmospheric lighting as soon as the sun sets. In addition to the smart FRITZ!DECT 500 LED light you can also use Zigbee LED lights in your FRITZ! Smart Home. This provides for a wide range of possibilities to integrate smart lighting in your garden.

Carefree outings

Spring weather entices us beyond our own garden. As the days get warmer and longer, short outings or even weekend trips become more frequent. The Smart Home can help you enjoy carefree days outside.

Scenes and routines can be used to have previously specified lights switched on after sundown, even randomly. During the day, the smart shutter control provides for additional activity – so your home looks bustling, deterring potential burglars.
