Registering a smart home device with the FRITZ!Smart Gateway

You can register smart home devices from AVM and smart home devices from other manufacturers with the FRITZ!Smart Gateway if they support the standard Zigbee or DECT ULE/HAN FUN. ZigBee, along with DECT-ULE and HAN-FUN, is a common standard for connecting smart home devices and is used by Philips Hue LED lamps and smart home LED lamps from Ikea, for example.
