System App - Administration
What can I do if the installation takes a long time and the update screen is displayed (system update, smart home controller)?
If you use your Smart Home Controller for the first time, it will download an intial update. This process can take up to 30 minutes due to the large amount of software supplied, depending on the available bandwidth. As soon as all LEDs on the controller are constantly lit in white, the link between the Bosch Smart Home App and the Boch Smart Home Controller can be established.
Why are there so many different apps from Bosch? How are they connected?
We distinguish between the Bosch Smart Home System App and Apps for special domains / products. The Bosch Smart Home System App covers cross-domain use cases with Bosch and integrated non-Bosch products. The System App also takes care of basic functions and covers a wide range of functions, but does not always go into depth. For the special functions there are then special apps and systems, such as the following apps: Bosch Smart Cameras -> Indoor camera 360° and outdoor camera Eyes BSH Hausgeräte-> For products in the household appliance sector Bosch Junkers / Buderus-> Connected Boiler Please note that parts of the described products and their functions may only be available in Germany and Austria.
