Your benefits

What you can do with Apple HomeKit®

Combine devices from different manufacturers

Combine your Bosch Smart Home devices quickly and easily with HomeKit® devices from other providers. This permits a variety of new scenes and automations.

Trigger scenes by entering an area

With geofencing, actions or scenes are automatically triggered when entering or leaving a previously defined geographical area.

Flexibly select Smart Home control

Control your Bosch Smart Home and other HomeKit® devices via iPad, Mac or your Apple Watch. Alternatively, you can use the extension of voice control with Siri on your HomePod, Mac, iPad or iPhone.

Even more possible combinations

Even more possible combinations

You are in a hurry in the morning and have to leave for work. Thanks to the connection of your Bosch Smart Home Motion Detector to your HomeKit compatible garage door, it opens automatically when you open the basement door. This saves you time and allows you to leave the house even more relaxed.

As you can see: With the Apple HomeKit® you create a useful symbiosis between smart products from different manufacturers – and thus benefit from completely new combination possibilities.

Welcome home – even more convenience thanks to geofencing

Welcome home – even more convenience thanks to geofencing

Do you want a home that reacts automatically when you come home? When you park your car in the driveway after a long day at work, your lights switch on automatically and your Bosch thermostat is activated at the same time, ensuring a pleasant temperature. The magic word: geofencing.

The extended geofencing automations of the Apple HomeKit® trigger a desired action or scene as soon as you enter or leave an individually defined area. This way, your Smart Home takes care of processes even more independently.

Control on call

Control on call

“Siri, please turn off the light in the bedroom!“. Thanks to the Apple HomeKit® you can also assign tasks around the house via your Apple voice assistant. Siri knows your Bosch Smart Home devices and their status.

Control in a variety of ways

Control in a variety of ways

You are lying on the sofa and none of these devices are within reach but the shutters are still open or the light in the kitchen is still on? Just use your Apple Watch to control your Bosch Smart Home on your wrist. In addition, the Apple Home App is also available for Mac to control the Smart Home on a real desktop computer – this is particularly useful when you are working from home. Alternatively, you can also control your Smart Home via your iPhone, iPad or HomePod.


How it works

Enable operation for guests

Enable operation for guests

It is always fascinating when tasks in your home take care of themselves. Therefore, it is no wonder your guests want to try out the new functions that your Smart Home has learnt thanks to Apple HomeKit®.

Granting access to the Apple Home App to family and friends is quick and easy: No need for an additional app.

How to protect your data

How to protect your data

With Apple HomeKit® data security is also a top priority: If you only use your Smart Home System with Apple HomeKit® at home, your data is stored locally on the devices.

You can also control your Smart Home safely when you are on the road: With remote access via iCloud, the end-to-end encryption between iPhone and Smart Home Controller guarantees the security of your data. Remote access is made possible by a hub in form of a HomePod, iPad or Apple TV.

It is up to you to decide whether you want to access your Smart Home System when you are on the road or whether you prefer your Apple HomeKit® devices to only communicate with each other locally.

Technical requirements for the use of remote access and automations via HomeKit®

One of the following devices that serves as HomeKit® hub:

Apple TV (4th generation or later) with tvOS 10 or later, iPad with iOS 10 or later, HomePod
