DT adds smart home functions on all routers

Tuesday 16 May 2017 | 14:25 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom announced that it is integrating features of its Magenta SmartHome offering in its Speedport Smart router. Effective immediately, the routers do not just manage phone calls, internet and TV; they can also control smart home devices. In addition to Wi-Fi, the Speedport Smart now also supports the DECT ULE cordless standard – enabling the integration of smoke detectors, thermostats and other smart devices. Other protocols can be retrofitted via USB port. A USB stick for the ZigBee protocol is already available and a stick for the Homematic IP protocol is scheduled for release
