Having the push service send status messages on smart home devices

FRITZ!Powerline can send you e-mail messages at regular intervals, known as "push service mail", to report on the status of your FRITZ!Powerline and information about its use. You can specify which events in FRITZ!Powerline you would like to be informed about and how often these e-mails should be sent. Push services are available for different functions.
Depending on the settings, the "Smart Home" push service sends e-mails with information about the output, consumption and switching status of your FRITZ!Powerline adapter.

Example:
Your washing machine is connected to the switchable socket. As soon as the washing cycle has finished, i.e. when the washing machine switches to standby mode, you would like to receive corresponding notification by e-mail.

In this guide we use this example to show you a possible application scenario and how to configure the push service for smart home.

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

1 Configuring a smart home device

  1. Click "Smart Home" in the FRITZ!Powerline user interface.
  2. Click the button (Edit) for the relevant device.
  3. Click on the "Switch automatically" tab.
  4. Enable the option "Switch off on standby", then select a power threshold and the duration.
  5. Click "OK" to save the settings.

2 Configuring the push service

Entering e-mail account information

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Powerline user interface.
  2. Click "Push Service" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Sender" tab and enter your e-mail address and the corresponding e-mail password.
  4. Click "Account Information - Additional Settings".
  5. Enter the user name for the e-mail account in the "E-mail user name" field.
  6. Enter the SMTP server in the "SMTP server" field.

    Important:Your e-mail provider can tell you what to enter for the SMTP server.
    If the server is not accessible over port 25, you must also enter the port that is used by the server to communicate (for example 587, see fig.) in the "SMTP server" field.

  7. Enable the option "This server supports a secure connection (SSL)".

Enabling the push service for smart home

  3. Enable "Smart Home" and click the button (Edit).

The socket automatically turns off and the push service sends you a corresponding e-mail as soon as the washing machine switches to standby mode, causing its power threshold to fall below the defined value for the amount of time you specified.
