FRITZ!DECT 200 Service - Knowledge Base
Adjusting the temperature measured on a FRITZ!DECT socket
The temperature measured on the outlet switch, for example FRITZ!DECT 200, may deviate from the actual room temperature. If the outlet switch is next to a heater or behind a curtain, for example, the temperature on the outlet switch itself is probably higher than the temperature you measure with a thermometer in the middle of the room.. You can correct this deviation by positioning the outlet switch somewhere more suitable and adjusting the temperature offset.
Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.
1 Finding the ideal location for the FRITZ!DECT socket
- Plug FRITZ!DECT into a wall outlet.
- Make sure the ventilation slits are not covered, that the device is not exposed to direct sunlight, and that it is not located directly next to a heater.
- Remove any possible sources of heat in the vicinity of the device (for example other electrical devices that radiate heat).
2 Setting the temperature offset
If there is still a difference between the temperature measured and the actual room temperature, you can set the offset:
Important:The temperature on the device itself can vary greatly due to daily fluctuations, for example occasional exposure to sunlight or reduced ventilation, heating up of the device, etc. The deviation between the temperature measured at the device and the actual room temperature is therefore not constant. Offset cannot be used to take variable temperature fluctuations into account. The location is not suitable for accurate temperature readings.
- Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
- Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
- If available, select the option "All Smart Home devices" from the drop-down list "viewing".
- Click the (Edit) button for the respective device.
- Under "Temperature offset", set the actual room temperature by clicking the plus or minus.
- Click "OK" to save the settings.
