The fritzbox_callmonitor sensor monitors the call monitor exposed by AVM Fritz!Box routers on TCP port 1012. It will assume the values idle, ringing, dialing, or talking with the phone numbers involved contained in the state attributes.

To activate the call monitor on your Fritz!Box, dial #96*5* from any phone connected to it.

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

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: fritzbox_callmonitor

Configuration variables:

  • host (Optional): The IP address of your router, eg. It is optional since every fritzbox is also reachable by using the IP address
  • port (Optional): The TCP port of the call monitor. There is usually no reason to change this.
