Voice control of smart home devices (for example with Alexa)
FRITZ! products support numerous standardized interfaces, over which independent developers can offer their own solutions for controlling compatible smart home devices, radiator controls, or other smart home devices that are compatible with the FRITZ!Box. For example, on Amazon, there is a skill for Alexa that allows users to use voice control for FRITZ! products via Alexa, and Google offers an action for assistant.
Virtual assistants such as Amazon Alexa with Echo, Apple Siri with HomeKit or Google Assistant with Home are cloud-based, meaning they have to be able to access smart home devices and their settings via the internet.
This requires the following settings in the FRITZ!Box:
- Remote access from the internet, for example via MyFRITZ!
- FRITZ!Box user with the right "smart home" and "access from the internet allowed". The login data for this user must be made available to the provider of the assistant.
Important:Refer to the configuration instructions and data protection notice of the skill developer and the provider of the assistant.
Currently there is no AVM solution for voice control of smart home devices. Information about the interfaces supported by FRITZ! products can be found at https://en.avm.de/service/interfaces.
