# TR-064 Binding

This binding brings support for internet gateway devices that support the TR-064 protocol. It can be used to gather information from the device and/or re-configure it.

# Supported Things

Four thing types are supported:

  • generic: the internet gateway device itself (generic device)
  • fritzbox: similar to generic with extensions for AVM FritzBox devices
  • subDevice: a sub-device of a rootDevice (e.g. a WAN interface)
  • subDeviceLan: a special type of sub-device that supports MAC-detection

# Discovery

The gateway device needs to be added manually. After that, sub-devices are detected automatically.

# Thing Configuration

All thing types have a refresh parameter. It sets the refresh-interval in seconds for each device channel. The default value is 60.

# generic, fritzbox

The host parameter is required to communicate with the device. It can be a hostname or an IP address.

For accessing the device you need to supply credentials. If you only configured password authentication for your device, the user parameter must be skipped and it will default to dslf-config. The second credential parameter is password, which is mandatory. For security reasons it is highly recommended to set both, username and password.

# fritzbox

All additional parameters for fritzbox devices (i.e. except those that are shared with generic) are advanced parameters.

One or more TAM (telephone answering machines) are supported by most devices. By setting the tamIndices parameter you can instruct the binding to add channels for these devices to the thing. Values start with 0. This is an optional parameter and multiple values are allowed.

Most devices allow to configure call deflections. If the callDeflectionIndices parameter is set, channels for the status of the pre-configured call deflections are added. Values start with 0, including the number of "Call Blocks" (two configured call-blocks -> first deflection is 2). This is an optional parameter and multiple values are allowed.

Most devices support call lists. The binding can analyze these call lists and provide channels for the number of missed calls, inbound calls, outbound calls and rejected (blocked) calls. The days for which this analysis takes place can be controlled with the missedCallDays, rejectedCallDays, inboundCallDays, outboundCallDays and callListDays. This is an optional parameter and multiple values are allowed.

Since FritzOS! 7.20 WAN access of local devices can be controlled by their IPs. If the wanBlockIPs parameter is set, a channel for each IP is created to block/unblock WAN access for this IP. Values need to be IPv4 addresses in the format a.b.c.d. This is an optional parameter and multiple values are allowed.

If the PHONEBOOK profile shall be used, it is necessary to retrieve the phonebooks from the FritzBox. The phonebookInterval is uses to set the refresh cycle for phonebooks.

# subdevice, subdeviceLan

Besides the bridge that the thing is attached to, sub-devices have a uuid parameter. This is the UUID/UDN of the device and a mandatory parameter. Since the value can only be determined by examining the SCPD of the root device, the simplest way to get hold of them is through auto-discovery.

For subdeviceLan devices (type is detected automatically during discovery) the parameter macOnline can be defined. It adds a channel for each MAC (format 11:11:11:11:11:11) that shows the online status of the respective device. This is an optional parameter and multiple values are allowed.

# Channel callList

Call lists are provided for one or more days (as configured) as JSON. The JSON consists of an array of individual calls with the fields date, type, localNumber, remoteNumber, duration. The call-types are the same as provided by the FritzBox, i.e. 1 (inbound), 2 (missed), 3 (outbound), 10 (rejected).


The binding provides a profile for using the FritzBox phonebooks for resolving numbers to names. The PHONEBOOK profile takes strings containing the number as input and provides strings with the caller's name, if found.

The parameter thingUid with the UID of the phonebook providing thing is a mandatory parameter. If only a specific phonebook from the device should be used, this can be specified with the phonebookName parameter. The default is to use all available phonebooks from the specified thing. In case the format of the number in the phonebook and the format of the number from the channel are different (e.g. regarding country prefixes), the matchCount parameter can be used. The configured matchCount is counted from the right end and denotes the number of matching characters needed to consider this number as matching.
