Support for AVM Fritz DECT switch 440 and Light Bulb 500

And also a big thank you to @mib1185 for laying the foundation of the integrations!

Yes, I saw that too and I hope to find some time soon to have a Look at how to implement the free color selection :slightly_smiling_face: :bulb:

Hi,
can someone tell If the buttons of the Fritz 440 are supported in intervals shorter than 30s?
Would like to know before buying some of these.
Thank you!

This is just my observation with other Fritz DECT devices (especially the DECT 301):
When you physically interact with the DECT device and press any button, it will instantly report the status update back to the FritzBox. So on your FritzBox you get a rather fast update.
However Home Assistant will only poll the device states from your FritzBox every 30s, therefore it can take up to 30s for Home Assistant to get notified about that update.

Hi @syt6ss,
HA 2022.6.0 gives us free color selection for Fritz!DECT 500 lights.
Please let me know if you’re experiencing any problems in your setup as this feature is not documented by AVM :confused:.

How could you use button presses into HA?
I am not able to integrate them into automations.
I only get this:

Hi Julian,
any basic implementation would also be fine! My workaround at the moment is to “abuse” an idle DECT 201 switch for the detection of an button event:
The switch is configured in my Fritzbox to switch an idle Fritzdect 201 for only 1 minute to OFF. That transition is used as a trigger for a custom “fritz 400 button” binary sensor. At the moment I can live with the 30s delay! But in the foreseeable future I would like to reactivate that 201 switch for a different project…
Any ideas / plans on your roadmap? Thank you so much!
