FRITZ!DECT 200 – Service

Setting up the switch on sound function for FRITZ!DECT

FRITZ!DECT can be activated by a sound that causes it to turn on or off. This means that you can configure the plug to switch when you clap, knock, or a sound you define can be heard. In addition, you can select how long it should remain in this switching state and whether the plug should be turned on, off, or whether it should alternate between the two.

For example, you can have the light in your garage light up automatically when steps or voices can be heard and then turned off again after 10 minutes.
