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


To use an FRITZ!Box router in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: fritz

Configuration Variables

host string (Optional, default:

The IP address of your router, e.g., It is optional since every FRITZ!Box is also reachable by using the IP address

username string (Optional, default: admin)

The username of an user with administrative privileges, usually admin.

password string (Optional)

The password for your given admin account.

It seems that it is not necessary to use the password in current generation FRITZ!Box routers because the necessary data can be retrieved anonymously.

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