Registering a FRITZ!DECT socket with the FRITZ!Box

The outlet switch, for example FRITZ!DECT 200, is integrated into your home network via an encrypted DECT connection. You can either use the registration button on the FRITZ!Box or a wizard in the user interface for the registration procedure.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • FRITZ!Box 7312 and FRITZ!Box 7412 cannot be used with a FRITZ!DECT.
  • A FRITZ!Box with a DECT base station with FRITZ!OS 6 or later must be used.
  • A maximum of ten outlet switches can be registered with the FRITZ!Box.

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

1 Registering FRITZ!DECT with the wizard

  1. Plug the FRITZ!DECT into a power outlet near the FRITZ!Box.
  2. Open the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  3. Click "Device Management" in the "Smart Home" menu or click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
  4. Click the "Register Device" button.
  5. Within 2 minutes: Push the "DECT" button on FRITZ!DECT. Hold down the button for at least 6 seconds until the "DECT" LED starts to flash rapidly. The FRITZ!DECT is in registration mode as long as the LED flashes rapidly.

2 Registering FRITZ!DECT by button

  1. Plug the FRITZ!DECT into a power outlet near the FRITZ!Box.
  2. Push the "DECT" button on the FRITZ!DECT. Hold down the button for at least 6 seconds until the "DECT" LED starts to flash rapidly. The FRITZ!DECT is in registration mode as long as the LED flashes rapidly.
  3. Within 2 minutes: Push the registration button on the FRITZ!Box. Which button you must push depends on the FRITZ!Box model:

    Note:With FRITZ!Box models that have both "DECT" and "Connect" buttons, you can use either button.

    • If your model has a "Connect" button, push the "Connect" button on the FRITZ!Box. Hold down the button for about 1 second until the "Connect" LED starts to flash. The FRITZ!Box is in registration mode as long as the LED flashes. Other LEDs may also flash.
    • If your model has a "DECT" button, push the "DECT" button on the FRITZ!Box. 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 "DECT" LED on the FRITZ!DECT remains lit as soon as the DECT connection has been established. Then you can plug the FRITZ!DECT in wherever you want; you can configure and operate it in the "Smart Home" area of the FRITZ!Box user interface.
