FRITZ!Box Net Monitor

The fritzbox_netmonitor sensor monitors the network statistics exposed by AVM Fritz!Box routers.

It might be necessary to install additional packages: $ sudo apt-get install libxslt-dev libxml2-dev python3-lxml If you are working with the All-in-One installation, you may also need to execute also within your virtual environment the command pip3 install lxml; be patient this will take a while.

To use the Fritz!Box network monitor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: fritzbox_netmonitor

Configuration Variables


(string)(Optional)The IP address of your router, e.g., It is optional since every fritzbox is also reachable by using the IP address

The following statistics will be exposed as attributes.

Attribute Description
is_linked True if the FritzBox is physically linked to the provider
is_connected True if the FritzBox has established an internet-connection
wan_access_type Connection-type, can be DSL or Cable
external_ip External ip address
uptime Uptime in seconds
bytes_sent Bytes sent
bytes_received Bytes received
transmission_rate_up Current upstream speed in bytes/s
transmission_rate_down Current downstream speed in bytes/s
max_byte_rate_up Maximum upstream-rate in bytes/s
max_byte_rate_down Maximum downstream-rate in bytes/s

The sensor’s state corresponds to the is_linked attribute and is either online, offline, or unavailable (in case connection to the router is lost).
