# Fritzbox Binding (using TR064 protocol) v1

This is a binding for communication with AVM Fritz!Box using SOAP requests (TR064 protocol).

It has been tested on:

  • 6360 Cable (v6.04)
  • 6490 Cable (v7.02)
  • 6660 Cable (v7.14)
  • 7270
  • 7330SL (v6.54)
  • 7360SL (v6.30)
  • 7390
  • 7490
  • 7580 (v7.12)
  • 7590 (v6.92)

# Features

  • Detect if MAC is online in network (presence detection)
  • Switching on/off 2,4Hz Wi-Fi, 5GHz Wi-Fi and Guest Wi-Fi (if any)
  • Getting external IP address of fbox
  • Getting fbox model name
  • Call monitor
  • Switch Item: Receives "ON" state when call is incoming
  • Call Items: Shows external and internal number for incoming/outgoing calls
  • Resolve external call number to phonebook name
  • Enabling/disabling telephone answering machines (TAMs)
  • Enabling/disabling of call deflection
  • Getting new messages per TAM
  • Getting missed calls for the last x days
  • Getting DSL/WAN statistics for monitoring connection quality
  • Reboot

# Prerequisites

  • Enable TR064: In the webui goto "Heimnetz" - "Netzwerkeinstellungen": enable option "Zugriff für Anwendungen zulassen" (enabled by default)
  • Only if you want to use the call monitor feature (items starting with callmonitor_...), enable the interface by dialing #96*5*. You may disable it again by dialing #96*4*.

# Binding Configuration

This binding can be configured in the file services/fritzboxtr064.cfg.

Property Default Required Description
url Yes URL. Either use http://<fbox-ip>:49000 or https://<fbox-ip>:49443 (https preferred!)
refresh 60000 No Refresh interval in milliseconds
user dslf-config No User Name. Only use this value if you configured a user in fbox webui/config! It is recommended to switch to authentication by username in fritzbox config and add a separate config user for this binding.
pass Yes Password
phonebookid 0 No PhoneBook ID if you use a different phonebook (like a Google-synced phonebook).

# Examples and Hints

# Sitemap

For the Call items use Text elements in your sitemap.

# Map for Presence Detection

Use a map for presence detection item:

Create file transform/ and add:

CLOSED=not present

Now, as item configuration use (the addon "Map Transformation" must be installed):

Contact cFboxMacOnline      "Presence (Wifi) [MAP(]"    <presence>       {fritzboxtr064="maconline:11-22-33-44-55-66"}

# Rules

If you need the caller name (resolved from the fritzbox phonebook) in a rule, extract it like this:

rule "Phone is ringing"
    // fboxRinging is a switch item which switches to ON if call is detected
    Item fboxRinging changed from OFF to ON 
    logInfo("Call recognition", "Generating caller name message...")
    val incCall = fboxIncomingCall.state as StringListType
    val callerNumber = incCall.getValue(1)
    val incCallResolved = fboxIncomingCallResolved.state as StringListType
    val callerName = incCallResolved.getValue(1)

    // do something with callerName

rule "Reboot Fritzbox on Connectionloss"
    // to be determined externally
    Item internetConnection changed from ON to OFF
    sendCommand("fboxReboot", ON)
