1 Registering FRITZ!DECT

In order for automatic registration to work, you must set the PIN to "0000" under "DECT > Base Station" in the FRITZ!Box user interface:

  1. Plug FRITZ!DECT into an outlet near the FRITZ!Box.
    • The "DECT" LED begins to flash steadily.
  2. Now push the "DECT" button on the FRITZ!Box within 2 minutes. Hold down the button for at least 6 seconds until the "DECT" or "Info" LED on the FRITZ!Box begins to flash.

Now FRITZ!DECT automatically registers itself with the FRITZ!Box. The "DECT" LED on FRITZ!DECT remains lit as soon as the DECT connection has been established. After the connection is established, the FRITZ!Box checks whether new firmware is available for FRITZ!DECT. If a new version of the firmware is found, it is updated immediately. The update procedure is completed as soon as the LEDs on FRITZ!DECT stop flashing. This process may take several minutes.
