Simply proceed as described below. After each measure, check whether the issue persists.
1 Finding the ideal location for FRITZ!DECT
- Plug FRITZ!DECT into a wall outlet.
- Make sure the ventilation slits are not covered, that the device is not exposed to direct sunlight, and that it is not located directly next to a heater.
- Remove any possible sources of heat in the vicinity of the device (for example other electrical devices that radiate heat).
2 Correcting a temperature offset
The temperature measured on the device can deviate greatly from the actual room temperature, for example when the device is next to a heater or behind a curtain. Set the offset so that your smart home device accounts for such deviations:
- Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
- Click "Smart Home" in the "Home Network" menu.
- If available, select the option "All smart home devices" in the drop-down list "viewing".
- Click the button (Edit) or the button (General) for the respective device.
- Click "Additional settings".
- Under "Temperature offset", enter the value (in degrees Celsius) by which the measured value is to be corrected, for instance 2.0 or -2.0.
- Under "Temperature offset", set the actual room temperature by clicking the plus or minus.
- Click "OK" to save the settings.
