«I just got an email from my washing machine.» That’s no joke, but a convenient feature.
Thanks to Smart Home by AVM you can actually stay in touch with your home appliance and save money while you’re at it!
You need just two things: a current FRITZ!Box with DECT function and the smart plug FRITZ!DECT 200, which the washing machine (or any other home appliance) connects to. Alternatively, you can use FRITZ!Powerline 546E, which is also equipped with a smart plug. You can look at the power consumption of your washing machine after the laundry is finished or watch the current electrical output during the process over the user interface of your FRITZ!Box. Now, you can set up a rule so the FRITZ!DECT 200 is turned off automatically when power consumption falls under a previously defined limit, for example three minutes.
All current models of the FRITZ! Box with DECT function also support the latest smart home features . Thus you can control in your home network devices via the integrated interface of your router or even a smartphone or tablet and the FRITZ! Fon . This creates new possibilities for using the lamp , heater , washing machine and so on.
