just simply connect the FRITZ!DECT 200, intelligent socket via DECT to your FRITZ!Box
Berlin-based communication specialist AVM is presenting its innovations at IFA 2012 with the slogan “at home in your home.” In hall 17, AVM will showcase innovations designed for the ever growing home networking market and the trend towards greater bandwidth. Visitors to the AVM stand will experience the new innovations for VDSL, LTE and home networking for themselves and see the first intelligent socket from AVM, which connects the home network with the Smart Home.

FRITZ!DECT 200 – the first intelligent socket from AVM
For the first time, AVM is bringing together home networking and the Smart Home. At IFA it will showcase the FRITZ!DECT 200, an intelligent socket that harnesses successful DECT technology to measure, adjust and control home automation applications. The range of smart features also includes a week-by-week calendar, a sunrise/sunset function for automatically switching on and off, and linking with a Google calendar.

The FRITZ!DECT 200 measures the energy consumption of the devices connected to it – even over long periods of time – and notifies you of power consumption and switching times via push mail. The intelligent socket can also be managed via a computer or phone using a FRITZ!Box with integrated DECT base station. And thanks to the MyFRITZ! service on the FRITZ!Box, users can also access FRITZ!DECT on the go. As with all FRITZ! products, the FRITZ!DECT 200 also features an update function so that more applications can be added via firmware updates. The intelligent socket is integrated into the home network via DECT ULE (ultra-low energy). In contrast to other wireless home automation technologies, DECT ULE works on its own frequency band, at 1,880 MHz – this guarantees that your information will not be intercepted, and provides for a range of between 50 and 300 meters.
