Using Google calendar for automatic switching

You can easily use a Google calendar to switch FRITZ!DECT; to do so, simply create events for all of the times when it should be automatically switched on and off. This way you can plan irregular and complex switching operations months in advance and edit them at any time in your personal Google calendar.
You can use the FRITZ!Box user interface to set up automatic switching and choose to switch individual FRITZ!DECT devices or switch a group of devices at the same time. FRITZ!DECT devices and/or the outlet switches of FRITZ!Powerline adapters can be combined into a group.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Creating a calendar

  1. Create a new calendar for your Google account and give it a name of your choice, for example "Socket switching".

    Important:The name of the calendar may only contain standard Latin letters and numbers; it may not contain any special characters, spaces or umlauts.

  2. Enter the times at which the socket should be turned on and off: Name the time at which the socket is to be turned on "ON" and the time at which it is to be turned off "OFF". These names are not case sensitive. You can also enter switching times later.

    Note:You must allow for at least one minute between switching and can configure a maximum of 140 switching points per day.
