Using FRITZ!DECT 500 in the FRITZ!Box home network

The LED light FRITZ!DECT 500 is integrated into the FRITZ!Box home network via an encrypted DECT connection (DECT ULE). Then you can use the FRITZ!Box user interface to set the color, color temperature, and brightness of the LED light as well as set up an automatic switching schedule.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • Neither DECT repeaters from other manufacturers nor a FRITZ!Box 7390, 7270 or 7240 configured as a DECT repeater may be registered with the FRITZ!Box (under "Telephony > DECT > Monitor").

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

1 Establishing a DECT connection

  1. Switch off the lamp that you want to screw FRITZ!DECT 500 into.
  2. Screw the FRITZ!DECT 500 into the E27 socket of your lamp.
  3. Switch on the light. FRITZ!DECT 500 glows red and shows that it is ready to be registered with the FRITZ!Box.
  4. Push the "DECT" button on the FRITZ!Box within 2 minutes. Hold down the button for at least 6 seconds until the "DECT" or "Info" LED on the FRITZ!Box starts to flash. The FRITZ!Box is in registration mode as long as the LED flashes.

The LED light flashes green twice and then glows white once the DECT connection has been established.

  5. Click on the "General" tab.

  7. Under "Push Service Settings", enable the option "Push service enabled" so that you receive an email if the radio connection is lost or there are errors, for example.
  8. Enable the option "Push service enabled" so that you receive an email when important events occur.

    Note:You can find information on setting up the push service in this guide.

  9. Click "OK" to save the settings.

The LED light is now set up and you can use a FRITZ!DECT smart switch, a FRITZ!Fon (menu "Home Network > Smart Home"), or use FRITZ!App Smart Home to manually switch it in the home network or over the internet.
