Setting up group switching for smart home devices

You can combine several FRITZ!DECT sockets, for example FRITZ!DECT 200 or FRITZ!Powerline outlet switches into a group and easily switch them together. Then you can switch a group of several switchable sockets automatically according to a schedule or depending on temperature, and switch them on and off manually.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Creating a group

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click the (General) button next to a smart home device that should be in the group.
  4. Click "Create new group" in the "Group Switching" section, enter a name for the group and click "OK".
    • The window closes.
  5. Click "OK" to save the settings.

2 Assigning smart home devices to a group

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click the button (General) next to a smart home device that should be in the group.
  4. Select the name of a group in the "Group Switching" section.
  5. Click "OK" to save the settings.
  6. Repeat steps 1 to 3 for all smart home devices you want to switch together in the group.

3 Switching a group

Outlet switches, so-called "switch actuators", that you have grouped together can either be controlled automatically or manually:

Switching a group automatically

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click the (Switch Automatically) button next to any smart home device that belongs to the group.
  4. Configure the desired switching times in the "Automatic Switching" section.
  5. Click "OK" to save the settings.

Switching a group manually

If you manually switch a group for which you also set up automatic switching, the manual switching applies until the next automatic switching time occurs:

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click the on/off switch for "Group switch" in the section "Group [name of the group]".

    Note:You can also manually switch the smart home group in the home network using a FRITZ!Fon (menu "Home Network > Smart Home") or over the internet with MyFRITZ!App.

When group switching is enabled, you can manually switch individual smart home devices on the device itself, or you can use the FRITZ!Box user interface (in the "Home Network" menu under "Smart Home". As soon as the next group switching takes place, the device is then once again subject to the group switching settings.
