Setting up the switch on sound function for FRITZ!DECT socket

The outlet switch (for example FRITZ!DECT 200) can be configured so that it automatically switches when it detects certain sounds. It switches when it detects a clap, knock, or a different sound you specify.

For example, you can configure it so that the light in your garage turns on automatically when steps or voices can be heard and then turns off again after 10 minutes.
