This an extension for the MagicMirror. It provides a callmonitor for FRITZ!Box users alerting them about incoming calls. call


  1. Navigate into your MagicMirror's modules folder and execute git clone A new folder will appear navigate into it.
  2. Execute npm install to install the dependencies.
  3. (Optional) Execute sudo apt-get install python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev && sudo pip install fritzconnection to allow access to your FRITZ!Box phone book and recent calls. This can take a few minutes.
  4. Activate the callmonitor of your FRITZ!Box by calling #96*5* on a connected phone (Fritz Fon App won't work).

Using the module

To use this module, add it to the modules array in the config/config.js file:

modules: [
		module: 'MMM-FRITZ-Box-Callmonitor',
		position: 'top_right',	// This can be any of the regions. Best results in left or right regions.
		header: "Recent calls", // This is optional
		config: {
			// See 'Configuration options' for more information.

Loading your contacts

There are currently two different ways to get this module to displays the name of the caller, rather than the number. They are both optional, and you can combine them.

  1. Load a .vcf file, for example exported contacts from your phone (see options marked with VCF)
  2. Access your FRITZ!Box contacts via the TR-064 API (see options marked with API)

The latter will also load recently missed calls, which happened before you started your mirror.


If you are interested in having a list with all active calls as well, check out MMM-Callmonitor-Current-Call.

Configuration options

The following properties can be configured:

Option Method Description
numberFontSize any Font size of the phone number displayed in the alert.

Possible values: any int or float
Default value: 30
vCard VCF Absolute path to a .vcf file for number to name conversion.

Possible values: string
Default value: false
minimumCallLength any There is no real way to tell whether a call was missed or not because voice mails count as connected calls. You can however change the time a call has to be for it to be considered not missed. You should probably use a value as long as your voice mail.
Default 0 means any call gets added to the history.
If you enter a time larger than `0`, any call that is longer than that time, is not added to the list.

Possible values: time in seconds
Default value: 0
password API Password to access the FritzBox API. (optional)
If you enter this, it directly loads your phonebook(s) and recently missed calls from the FritzBox.
If you have specified a username for your access to the FritzBox, see below.

You can also create a different user from the one you use for accessing the FritzBox (see this guide: en / de). You will need to check View and edit FRITZ!Box settings for this user.

Possible values: string
Default value: ""
username API Username to access the FritzBox API. (optional)
Specify the username if you have one set up for the FritzBox access (see password option).
Leave out if you have no username (default).

reloadContactsInterval API How often contacts are reloaded from the FRITZ!Box.
Set to 0 to disable reloading contacts, they are only loaded once after the start of the mirror.

Example: deviceFilter: ["firstphone", "secondphone"].
