Configuring the push service in the FRITZ!Box

If you want, you can have the push service send you emails informing you about the status of your smart home device, such as low battery level, or if the radio connection to the FRITZ!DECT radiator control is interrupted.

First of all, configure the account information for your email account in the FRITZ!Box so the push service can send emails. Depending on whether you are using the FRITZ!DECT radiator control with the FRITZ!Box or the FRITZ!Smart Gateway, enable the "Smart Home" push service in the corresponding user interface; it will then send you push service mails about certain events.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Entering email account information

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Push Service" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click the "Configure Push Service" link. If the link is not shown, click on the "Sender" tab.
  4. Enter your email address and password.
  5. Click "Account Information: Additional Settings".

    Note:In most cases, the FRITZ!Box automatically completes the following information. With smaller local providers, you have to enter it yourself. The required information is supplied by your DSL provider.

  6. Enter your username and the name of your email provider's SMTP server.
  7. If the server is not accessible on port 25, enter the port used by the server to communicate in the "Port" field, for example 587.
  8. If the server supports SSL, enable the option "This server supports a secure connection (SSL)".
  9. Enable the option "Test email sending after adopting the settings". If the option is not available, the test email will be sent automatically.
  10. Click "Next" or "Apply" and follow the wizard's instructions.
  11. Now the FRITZ!Box sends a test email to your email account.

2 Enabling the "Smart Home" Push Service

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface or in the user interface of the FRITZ!Smart Gateway.
  2. Click "Push Service" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click the (Edit) button for the "Smart Home" push service.
  4. Click the (Edit) button for the smart home device you want to enable the push service for.
  5. Select the "Push service enabled" option.
  6. If you want to send the push service mails to an alternative email address, enter the desired email address. Use commas to separate multiple email addresses.
  7. Click "Apply" to save the settings.
