Smart Home explained
How it works
Make your home a Smart Home
The easy way to a smart life
With Bosch Smart Home you can integrate your first Smart Home devices quickly and easily into your home. Three things are important when setting up a Smart Home: the controller, the devices themselves and the Bosch Smart Home app.
Installation really is this simple
Install the Smart Home Controller
Step 1 of 4
When you set up your controller, your dream of a Smart Home begins. Installation is quick and easy: insert the network cable into the Bosch Smart Home Controller and a free LAN port on your Wi-Fi router. In the next step, connect the Smart Home Controller to the mains using the power supply. After the controller starts up, pay attention to the LEDs – they show the initialisation status.
If you connect your Bosch controller to the Internet for the first time, it can take a little bit longer: your controller will automatically search for software updates. If updates are required, they will be downloaded and installed automatically. This process can take up to 30 minutes. During this time, you cannot continue setting up the Smart Home Controller.
As soon as all the LEDs light up, your controller is ready for use.
Step 2 of 4
The next step does not take long: before you start setting up your Smart Home, download the Bosch Smart Home app. You will need this for installation, configuration and operation.
Another important point: in order to set up the controller, the mobile end device (smartphone or tablet) on which the Bosch Smart Home app is installed must be in the Wi-Fi network of the router to connected the controller to.
Connect the Smart Home Controller
Step 3 of 4
As soon as your app is ready to go, it is time to connect the Smart Home Controller as the first device in your system to the Bosch Smart Home app. After that, you can integrate other Bosch Smart Home components and expand your system. Simply launch the app and wait until it has recognized the controller.
The app will then prompt you to scan the QR code on the product. You will find this on the underside of your Smart Home Controller.
From this point onwards, the app will guide you step by step through the installation.
Add other devices
Step 4 of 4
Once the Smart Home Controller has been fully installed, you can add further components to your Bosch Smart Home System in the app.
Important: Always read the user manual for the particular device.
After that, you are ready to enjoy your intelligent home!
