AVM launches two new FRITZ! products for the Smart Home: The FRITZ!DECT 500 smart LED light and the FRITZ!DECT 440 four-way smart switch with display. With the FRITZ!DECT 500 smart LED light, AVM is expanding its portfolio to include lighting control. The FRITZ!DECT 500, which offers white and color light for any situation, can be operated via the recently released FRITZ!App Smart Home, the new FRITZ!DECT 440 smart switch, FRITZ!Fon or via a browser. AVM now offers the most frequently requested products for a Smart Home, i.e., intelligent and consumption-recording smart plugs, a radiator control and a smart light. With this trio, the core functions of energy, heating and lighting are completely covered. The FRITZ!Box is the Smart Home hub, already used by many users in their households. The FRITZ!DECT 440 smart switch is also new to the market. In an elegant white housing equipped with an e-paper display, the FRITZ!DECT 440 offers switching functions for FRITZ!DECT products, also functioning as an external temperature sensor. The smart switch can be used as an all-in-one remote control anywhere in the FRITZ! Smart Home. Both products are available for purchase now.

 

New: lighting management with the FRITZ!DECT 500

Together with the new FRITZ!DECT 500 LED light, the FRITZ!Box becomes an intelligent lighting system. The FRITZ!DECT 500 is an LED light with smart lighting control for white and color light. Using Smart Home DECT ULE technology, it can easily be integrated into the FRITZ! home network at the touch of a button. The new light provides lighting for any situation, thanks to the adjustable dimming settings. The FRITZ!DECT 500 can be managed in a number of different ways, including the FRITZ!DECT 440 and 400 smart switches, FRITZ!Fon, the FRITZ!Box user interface or FRITZ!App Smart Home. With the FRITZ!DECT 500, together with the other FRITZ! Smart Home products, AVM offers a trio of energy, heating and lighting so users can select the smart scenarios they need. The new LED light is suitable for use with the widely used E27 screw base fitting. To use the FRITZ!DECT 500, a FRITZ!Box with FRITZ!OS 7.20 is required.

 

Smart Home remote control: The FRITZ!DECT 440 four-way smart switch

Another Smart Home highlight is the new FRITZ!DECT 440 four-way switch with an e-paper display. It can be used to turn different FRITZ! Smart Home devices on and off, individually or in groups, and activate templates. The FRITZ!DECT 440 can be connected via DECT ULE technology to any FRITZ!Box with a DECT base station. With the FRITZ!DECT 440 several FRITZ! Smart Home products assigned to a room can be quickly and conveniently switched on/off and managed. Those products include the FRITZ!DECT 200 and FRITZ!DECT 210 smart plugs, the FRITZ!DECT 301 radiator control and the new FRITZ!DECT 500 LED light. The light can also be dimmed with the new smart switch. Thanks to the built-in temperature sensor, FRITZ! DECT 440  measures the ambient temperature and can be used as an external temperature sensor for the radiator control from FRITZ!. With four configurable buttons to operate FRITZ! products, the FRITZ!DECT 440 is the ideal remote control for the Smart Home network. Selected Smart Home devices can be set up over the FRITZ!Box user interface and assigned to one of the buttons. The ergonomic smart switch ensures convenient and intuitive operation and can be placed anywhere thanks to the magnetic wall mount.

 

Keep an eye on everything with FRITZ!App Smart Home

Whether at home or on the go, with the recently released free FRITZ!App Smart Home, users always have their Smart Home with them. The app, for Android and iOS, is the perfect management tool for the FRITZ! Smart Home network. All Smart Home devices, such as the FRITZ! smart plugs, radiator controls or lights, are presented in a clear, modern design. Users can quickly access and easily control their devices. Users can get the information they need quickly and easily, such as the desired temperature and real-time temperature in the room. Rearranging the Smart Homes devices is super easy. Touch and hold the tile; you can then move it to the desired position. Tapping a device opens the central view, where you can manage the device in question. It also provides useful information such as the switch status or the current power use. The desired temperature for radiators can be increased, lowered or set to a previously preconfigured level with a simple touch of a button.
