In addition, devices from other manufacturers can also be integrated into the FRITZ! Smart Home – from motion sensors to door intercom systems and roller shutters. Spring feeling, morning routines, e-mobility, smart DIY and an "all-in-one" – the following five scenarios show what is possible with FRITZ!. Additional useful information and tips around the Smart Home from AVM can be found at en.avm.de/smart-home, including a list of compatible Smart Home solutions from other manufacturers: en.avm.de/compatible.

Spring is in the air

Heating and light will soon only be needed again later on in the evening, when the sunset starts to get later.  With the FRITZ!Box template feature, radiators, lights and all devices that consumer power can be switched on/off together. Users can, of course, set up schedules or control things spontaneously with FRITZ!App Smart Home.

A simplified morning routine

The morning coffee is ready, the kitchen and bathroom are nice and warm and day is breaking. This is where the smart helpers from FRITZ! come into play. Thanks to the smart plugs, the coffee is ready at the desired time and the radiator controls get the bathroom and kitchen pleasantly warmed up. In addition, controlled lamps and roller shutters automatically let daylight into the house after sunrise, streamlining the morning routine.

Smart DIY

A garage, attic or basement is the perfect retreat for focusing on DIY or arts and crafts. Preheat the room with the radiator control and light up the workspace with the LED light. The FRITZ!DECT products can be switched on/off depending on the temperature, for example to stop water and other liquids from freezing. You can even check the humidity on the smart switch's display. And by integrating a networked doorbell into the home network, you'll never miss a visitor or a delivery, even when down in the basement.

e-mobility: Keep an eye on and analyze power consumption

How much electricity do e-bikes really consume on a daily basis? The switchable sockets make it easy to measure and analyze the power consumption of the connected devices. So you know how much power your e-bike really uses. The same applies to owners of electric cars who charge their four wheels at home. The consumption statistics of the FRITZ!Box, which can also be exported, help users keep an eye on their vehicles' energy costs.

A do-it-all switch: Smart on and off

In the office or at home: The first one to get there or to wake up switches on the devices and lights, and the last one to leave or go to bed switches everything off. This is easily done via a switch located in a central place in the home or office. This increases convenience and saves energy.
