Your data security is our highest priority. The Home Connect app is TÜVTrustIT checked and the system meets the highest security standards. Of course, the exchange of device-specific information and transfer of personal data is encrypted.
Access to the Home Connect App and controlling your household appliances is only possible via your personal account, which is protected by your password. Never tell anyone your user data and keep your password safe; our employees will never ask you for your password.
The Home Connect app also includes a demo mode in which you can try out applications before you decide to buy a home appliance using the Home Connect function. For example, you can test how the dishwasher programs are set or how you can send the correct settings for a recipe straight to the oven. In addition, there's a selection of recipes available, as well as cooking tips and tricks.
At the moment the Home Connect App is available for household appliances from our Partners Bosch and Siemens. In order to use Home Connect, you need to download the app first and register for Home Connect with your name and email address. Then all you need is an appliance with Home Connection functionality, a mobile device (tablet PC and/or Smartphone) and a functioning WLAN router. Appliances with Home Connect functionality can only be registered on secure, encrypted WLAN networks (WPA or WPA2 encryption). In contrast to other solutions, Home Connect does not require additional expensive equipment and is ready to go out of the box.
I have been waiting years for an appliance like this. But now I use it daily, I'm missing some functionality. The use of an app provides the possibility to add some usability functions. The most important would be the possibility to add 'presets' This would save me the trouble to repeat the same settings every day.
Using it on Bosch washing machine. Says it's connected but WiFi on machine but symbol continues to flash. App can't find machine. App update today,found machine but went past the login stage so didn't work. Advice please.
Impossible to get it working. Sometimes it finds the washing machine but that happens one out of ten. Fire your developers. They don't know how to write reliable software. Also uses 100MB on the phone. Unbelievable.
This could be useful, but notifications are very unreliable. It seems as though you need the app open, but even then they don't always work.
The only really useful feature "push notifications" (like washing machine is done) doesn't work as expected. The notifications only work if the app is active in the background. In addition: I want to have a look at the technical protocol specifications this so called "open" system. But so far I haven't been able to find them. Where can I download them?
Controls are too sensitive. For example if I try and set the oven temperature to 200 degrees when I lift my finger it changes to 201. Would be good to be able to add temperature and time preset buttons. UI for time settings needs improvement. See Google clock and timely for inspiration.
Sehr gut. Teure Waschmaschine gekauft und die App ist nicht mit dem Gerät kompatibel. Ist das etwa ein Scherz? (WM16YH840 von Siemens)
Schönes Design der App. Ofen lässt sich gut bedlinen und überwachen. Free mich auf weitere Geräte!
