It's so easy to integrate all the devices in your smart home into the app:

Start the Bosch Smart Home App and scan the QR code of your Smart Home Controller, the heart of your Smart Home System.

To do this, your controller and your mobile device must be on the same network. Simply connect the controller to the router with a network cable and your mobile device via Wi-Fi.

Finally, press and hold the function key until the Cloud and Network LEDs flash. This ensures that no unauthorized person will perform the installation.

Simply scan the QR code of each device and determine in which room the device will be used. This code is located on the back or in the battery compartment of your device and also in the packaging.

Simple is good, automatic is better

With your universal smart home app, you can control more than just individual devices manually.

Scenarios
Small fingertip, big effect

Scenarios

Control multiple smart home devices at once with a single fingertip or voice command. This will save you the same routine procedures in the future.

Scenarios

Front door open, alarm system off, lights on, shutters down, temperature up. It's always the same things that you have to do when you come home, before you have really "arrived". In your smart home, on the other hand, a quick tap of the finger is all it takes and all these things happen by themselves - thanks to practical scenarios.

A scenario describes a state that your smart home should assume in a certain situation. With a single tap or voice command, you can start a whole range of pre-defined actions that put your home in the desired state.

Using the Smart Home App, you can use preset scenarios or create new scenarios that you can tailor to your habits and needs.

Scenarios
Automation
Simply let it do it - completely automatically

Automation

Define specific triggers that will automatically start an action or scenario in the future. In this way, your smart home devices will automatically react exactly as you want them to in certain situations.

Automation

For a home that thinks for itself: With individually configurable automations, your smart home devices "know" what they should react to and when. According to the if-then principle, they then carry out defined actions when certain events occur. You can even trigger entire scenarios. In the Bosch Smart Home App, for example, you can define the following: If the living room temperature in summer exceeds your individual desired temperature, the shutters there will automatically lower.

You can even trigger a whole chain of actions. Another example: When the dryer is ready, a lamp in the living area lights up green. If you now make your way down to the basement, a motion detector registers this - and switches on the work lights and radio in the laundry room. So you can unload the dryer there without any further action and relax and fold your laundry.

Authorizations
Parental control made easy

Authorizations

Assign different permissions to different mobile devices so that everyone at home can enjoy the comfort of their own home, but nothing is accidentally misplaced or deleted.

Authorizations

"Mom, I deleted the heating!" - When kids have access to the devices, misfortunes are bound to happen. How good that you can prevent them with the Bosch Smart Home App.

To make sure that everyone at home is comfortable but cannot accidentally change or delete anything, you can set individual authorizations for each mobile device under "Management".

For example, you can restrict the authorizations on the family tablet so that your children can "only operate" your Smart Home devices, but not "operate and manage" them. This prevents unwanted changes.

Authorizations

In addition to manual control, scenarios and automation, preset services also control your smart home

Alarm system

Alarm system

Watchful around the clock and better than any watchdog: With the "Alarm System" service in the Bosch Smart Home App, not only you but also your neighbors are immediately alerted to unwanted guests. Your Eyes Outdoor Camera detects and films conspicuous movements. Your Door/Window Contacts and Motion Detectors react to unplanned intrusion and immediately trigger visible and audible alarms to deter burglars: The siren of your smart smoke detectors sounds a loud alarm, lights come on, Philips Hue lights flash a conspicuous red. Burglars will quickly take off. At the same time, you receive a push message via the app and can use the livestream of your indoor or outdoor camera to see what's going on or call the police directly. Your home is thus ideally protected at all times.

Water alarm

Water alarm

Water damage is the most frequent form of damage in homes – and can cost a lot of money and cause a lot of frustration. In your Bosch Smart Home App, activate the “water alarm” in order to discover escaping water immediately and to prevent serious damage.

  • with a loud beeping noise.
  • Lamps that light up in blue also provide a visual signal of the hazard.
  • A push notification allows you to act fast: In the app screen, thanks to photographs and live images of your indoor cameras, you can immediately see what is happening – and can call the emergency services with just a tap of your finger.
Presence simulation

Presence simulation

So that you can go out carefree in the evening or relax at a far away holiday destination:

The Smart Home App features an intelligent presence simulation. When you are not at home, all devices connected via adapter plugs, such as TV, radio, lights and the lighting control system including Philips Hue lamps, are switched on and off unevenly by an intelligent random principle. In addition, you can have the roller shutters raised and lowered daily via automation. This way your house looks occupied at all times.

Via remote access, you can check that everything is in order at all times.

Healthy room air: Ventilation reminder

In well-insulated rooms, pollutants and moisture only escape with difficulty – which can result in the air there being even worse than on high-traffic roads. The result: Health risks, fatigue, problems concentrating, headaches and risk of mould.

But between the hustle and bustle of everyday life and our need for convenience, we often forget to ventilate rooms regularly. The solution: Your ventilation reminder service. The pre-configured ventilation light immediately informs you via push notification and/or by lighting up the integrated smart colour lights when your Twinguard measures poor air quality.

You can see at a glance: If the ventilation light is red, it is time to ventilate the room until the light turns green

Summer break

Summer break

Summer at last! You think of everything but your heating. It's a good thing your smart home does that for you. Activate the "summer break" service in the Bosch Smart Home App. This will set the room temperature in selected rooms to the lowest level. Nevertheless, the functionality of your radiator valves is regularly checked automatically. This way you can be sure that the heating in the Smart Home is always working reliably and that the valve does not become calcified during the summer months.

Ventilation detection

Ventilation detection

Airing your rooms several times a day improves your indoor climate and is important for your health. Your smart home will take care that your heating does not run at full speed when you open the window to air the room: The Door/Window Contact reports the open window to your Smart Home system. The smart radiator thermostat then reduces the temperature and the radiator stops heating. On the other hand, the fact that you can adjust the reaction time allows you to let the cat out for a short time without the short moment of opening the door immediately affecting the heating.

Individually adjustable time programs also allow you to heat only where and when you need it.

Motion light

Motion light

Whether classically in front of the front door, on the way to the basement or at night in the hallway: with the "moving light" service you are no longer groping in the dark.

As soon as the motion detector detects a movement, selected lights are switched on. Of course, this happens the smart way: The function is only triggered when the currently measured brightness - or rather darkness - requires it. You determine both the light sensitivity and the time intervals of the motion light according to your wishes.

You also have the choice of the type of light: you can use all Philips Hue lamps integrated into the system or lamps controlled via plugs as moving lights - and you can even use them across rooms.


Bosch Smart Camera App
