Fritzbox Bridge (v0.5.8) beta

worked on support for Fritzbox DECT devices for Homey and would like to share it.

sensor support is based on function so only special device functions needs to be added.
for this purposes the current alpha version logs a device list. please share this list here help improve functionality and stability.

if anyone have request or idea related to this please let me know :slight_smile:

I dont have actually Fritz devices but have Fritz itself. wlan-guest-config set/get really sounds interesting. :+1::+1::+1:

Sounds good. I have a power plug I want to use it with :slight_smile:

Very nice! :+1:

I have 4 Fritz!DECT 300 in the drawer. After moving from homee to homey they have become unemployed.
Wanted to sell this product.
But now I will probably wait until the app is published.

that would be a shame :wink:

the project is still in alpha state so if you would like to test or try pls pm me your mail ( and i will add you to alpha participants )

v0.3.0 added the fritzbox status information’s - currently only version and update availability.
but there are a lot of information that could be displayed and many possibilities for trigger/conditions/actions.
i’m going to add more status information’s if they needed by you so we don’t have to show a lot of unused informations

Great job @puschie !

Thanks for the great app!
Now I do not have to sell the dect Plugs!! :grin:

i am very pleased to inform you that the app has now reached beta status and is now available via app store :slight_smile:


@puschie i’ve created a pull request at github, there where a few typos in your app.json, did you allready saw it?
Will test the app out as soon as i have time. Thanks for the work!

Yes, thanks :slight_smile: is merged
currently I’m not sure when next update is done - hope to find some time on weekend

No big issue. only would like to give you the feedback.

I have a Fritzbox router. Do you think it is possible to use your app for presence detection by wifi connected phones to the LAN? I know the Ubiquity app has that function. Would be really cool :slight_smile:

we can do simple available/unavailable detection
-> the question is how to assign wlan devices to users

You can do the assignment in the flow.
If fritz device xyz is home set user xcv home.

shortened the readme

next update 0.6 will come by the end of next week. ( login fix, wlan device trigger )

I created a own login for the app, but i always get a “invalid login” notification.
No special characters etc. and YES the password is written correctly :wink:

Any ideas?

Thanks to @Osorkon: “http://” in front, solve this problem :slight_smile:

First of thanks for the app, my FRITZ! DECT 200 runs perfectly with it :+1:
the only thing I still lack is the display of the room temperature of the FRITZ! DECT 200 :pray:


Could you please add presence detection to the Fritzbox by using Wifi like it is already possible with the netgear and UniFi app?

I’m already using this feature with Home Assistant and it works very reliable.
I’m not a coder myself but the used code doesn’t seem to be long, maybe this can help you:

I had a question, how i can setup my Fritz Box, i didnt can access directly because i had a USG Router, the Fritz Box are after this as a Client to manage my Phone Connection, can i setup via myfritz! Adress? Thanks regards

works great, took a few months to install bvefore i understood how to log in

the essense for log in in the fritzbox :

ip eg

make a user with password in the fritzbox
change the local login from only password to user with password
turn off ssl
