The fritz platform offers presence detection by looking at connected devices to a AVM FRITZ!Box based router.


Adding AVM FRITZ!Box Tools to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

AVM FRITZ!Box Tools can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as “Discovered”, which you can select to set it up right away.

Manual configuration steps
TR-064 needs to be enabled in the FRITZ!Box network settings for Home Assistant to login and read device info.

The configuration in the UI asks for a username. Starting from FRITZ!OS 7.24 the FRITZ!Box creates a random username for the admin user if you didn’t set one yourself. This can be found after logging into the FRITZ!Box and visiting System -> FRITZ!Box Users -> Users. The username starts with fritz followed by four random numbers. Under properties on the right it says created automatically. Prior to FRITZ!OS 7.24 the default username was admin.

See the device tracker integration page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked.
