Creating a scene for smart home devices

You can combine multiple actions and settings of your smart home devices that you saved as templates into one scene. Different device types like FRITZ!DECT radiator controls and smart plugs/LED lights can also be switched together in a scene. You can use preconfigured scenes or create individual scenarios to control your smart home devices easily and conveniently.

Requirements

  • FRITZ!OS 7.50 or later must be installed on the FRITZ!Box to create a scene.

1 Creating a template  

First create the templates with the desired settings for your smart home devices that you want to combine in the scene:

  1. Click "Smart Home" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Automation" in the "Smart Home" menu.
  3. Click "Create Scene or Template".
  4. Configure the desired settings and select the devices, the switching type, and the name of the new template.

    Note:If a device is already in a group, you cannot assign just that device to a template; you can only assign the entire group to a template.

  5. Now save the template.

2 Creating a scene

There are different types of scenes that you can use. With custom scenes, you use templates you created yourself, with predefined scenes, you use automatically generated templates:

Creating a custom scene

  1. Click "Smart Home" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Automation" in the "Smart Home" menu.
  3. Click "Create Scene or Template".
  4. Enable "Predefined or custom scene" and click "Next".
  5. Enable "Own Scene" and click "Next".
  6. Enter a name for the scene and click "Next".
  7. Select the templates you want to combine in the scene and click "Finished". Now the scene is created.

Adjusting a predefined scene

There are two preset scenes, "Coming Home" and "Leaving Home" from automatically generated templates that you can use directly. These preset scenes switch all of the LED lights and smart plugs registered with the FRITZ!Box, Wi-Fi and the Wi-Fi guest network, and the FRITZ!Box answering machine on or off, and set the radiator controls to the comfort or cool-down temperature.

If you would like to adjust a predefined scene, proceed as follows:

  1. Click "Smart Home" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Automation" in the "Smart Home" menu.
  3. Click (edit) next to the "Leaving the House" or "Coming Home" scene.
  4. Enable all of the actions to be included in the scene. Disable the actions which should not be included in the scene.
  5. Click "Apply" to save the settings.

3 Applying a scene

  1. Click "Smart Home" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Operation" in the "Smart Home" menu.
  3. Click "Applying" for the desired scene.

Note:You can also enable the scenario with a FRITZ!DECT smart switch or a FRITZ!Fon (menu "Home Network > Smart Home"), or use FRITZ!App Smart Home to enable it manually in the home network or over the internet. Scenarios can be triggered via FRITZ!DECT 350 by opening and closing the window or door.
Routines can be used to automatically switch scenes.
