FRITZ!Box 7369 Service - Knowledge Base
Using smart home devices outside the range of the base station
Unlike cordless telephones that use the DECT-GAP standard, FRITZ!DECT 200 works according to the DECT ULE (Ultra Low Energy) standard. You can use a FRITZ!DECT Repeater 100 to extend the range of DECT ULE-based devices if FRITZ!OS 6.50 or later is installed on the FRITZ!Box. DECT repeaters from other manufacturers generally do not support the repeating function for DECT ULE devices.
However, FRITZ!DECT 200 can easily function with signal levels much lower than those required by telephones and can therefore be positioned much further away from the DECT base station than a telephone, even without a repeater.
