Saving settings of smart home devices in templates

You can save the individual settings of your smart plugs and radiator controls, for example FRITZ!DECT 200 or FRITZ!DECT 301, and LED lights FRITZ!DECT 500 in different templates. Simply select the appropriate template as required and click to enable the desired settings. You can enable the template with the user interface of your FRITZ!Box, a FRITZ!DECT smart switch, with FRITZ!Fon, and with FRITZ!App Smart Home. You can use templates to switch either individual smart home devices or groups.

For example, if you work shifts, you can save different heating and switching profiles in corresponding templates for early and late shift and then quickly switch between these templates at any time.

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

  5. Select the device group.
