Stuttgart/Berlin. Everyday life, redefined. Enjoy life to the fullest, while still being able to individually control everything at home. Thanks to smarter technology – clever, simple and convenient. Because Bosch Smart Home means much more than just controlling shutters and lamps: these days, you can select from a range of 15 products, with countless possibilities for applications in the most important areas of everyday life. From individually configurable alarm systems and smart indoor climate solutions to intuitive control elements. This year as well, Bosch Smart Home is introducing many innovative products and software updates to the market, in order to make users' lives more simple and tailor-made to their wishes. Bosch Smart Home offers its users a real atmosphere of well-being and security, takes care of everyday operations as desired – and, in the process, is easier to control than ever. Users and their comfort take centre stage.

Bosch Smart Home AIR, the Mobile Well-being Sensor

Innovative living comfort: AIR supports to provide a healthy indoor climate and optimal air throughout the entire home. It regularly measures air quality, temperature and humidity, as well as brightness and noise level – and displays these results directly on the device or in the Bosch AIR app (available for iOS and Android). Users can therefore keep track on everything. Parents in particular provide optimal conditions for themselves and for their children with the help of the AIR, for healthier sleep, better concentration and improved wellness.

Small, light, battery-operated and therefore flexible for use throughout the entire house or even on the go. Thanks to self-explanatory icons and an LED light ring, the mobile well-being sensor also functions without the app. The detected data for humidity, air quality and temperature are displayed on the device in traffic-light colours. Its outstanding design earned the product the IF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award.

Via Bluetooth, the sensor can be connected to the Bosch AIR app. There, users find details concerning the measured ambient values over time. With this monitoring, the "vital signs" of living space are always in sight, like they are on a fitness tracker. Residents can therefore recognise negative tendencies in indoor climate early on – such as the threat of mould due to high humidity – and can actively prevent expensive renovation costs. Additionally, AIR supports the reduction of energy consumption with recommendations for more efficient ventilation. This pays off, particularly in the winter: up to half of heating energy is lost through ventilation. Therefore, the well-being sensor not only preserves health, but also the environment and your wallet.

Integrated into the Bosch Smart Home System, AIR opens up even more possibilities: with a connection to the Bosch Smart Home Controller, indoor climate data can also be viewed on the go. The scenario manager offers additional benefits: for example, if humidity levels exceed or fail to meet the defined target value, a humidifier or dehumidifier with a Bosch Smart Home Smart Plug can be automatically activated.

In short: the Bosch Smart Home AIR is the small, clever helper for a greater sense of well-being at home. This device allows its users to breathe easier and increases health and well-being with an improved indoor climate and better air quality.

Software update: innovative solutions for Bosch Smart Cameras

Same device, new features. The newest software updates for the Bosch Smart Cameras makes operation easier and provides for even more security. And the best: all new features are included in the free software update and are quickly installed.

The most important functions can now be accessed directly on your smartphone home screen via widgets (available for iOS and Android). They ensure a better overview and quicker access to video events and the camera's main functions. This update also includes improved push notifications with direct links for taking further action. Whether directly playing a live video or the latest event – whenever quick reactions are called for, users can act more purposefully.

Thinking beyond Smart: starting now, video recordings can be triggered not only by motions, but also by sound. The cameras' noise sensitivity is adjustable. For example, pet owners can have a notification sent to them whenever their dog barks at home, if they want. What is also new is that the Eyes Outdoor Camera can record video clips with audio, thus delivering additional, valuable information on events.
Based on customers' experiences and inspiration, additional new features were integrated into this software update and existing functions were optimised. More refined levels of sensitivity can now be selected for motion detection. Furthermore, video clips and live streams also display the date and time. Perfect for using them as evidence – in the case of a burglary, for example.

Clever cameras: as a single solution, with Alexa or in the Smart Home System

Already since the beginning of 2018, the 360° Indoor Camera and the Eyes Outdoor Camera have been operable via Alexa, the Amazon voice service. With a voice command, camera lights can be turned on, or the indoor camera's retractable lense extends or the live video can display who is at the door (on Echo Show, Echo Spot and on the television with Fire TV).

The cameras can also be directly integrated into the Bosch Smart Home System and can be operated with the Twist remote control, the Universal Switch and scenarios, in addition to the app. In the "leaving home" scenario, for example, the cameras are activated along with the alarm system. Working together, these form a strong team. If the alarm is triggered by a suspected fire or burglary, it is possible to check what is happening in the house using the cameras. Conversely, the "coming home" scenario ensures that the indoor cameras automatically switch to privacy mode. Thus, users can define the appropriate camera scenario for any situation.

Developed further with system: that's how Smart Home becomes even smarter

Bosch Smart Home pursues the goal of making smart technology as user-friendly as possible – perfectly adjusted to individual needs. In accordance with this vision, a growing number of innovative products and services are being connected with each other, optimised and expanded.

In the process, the highest requirements for data protection and user privacy are of the utmost importance. This was reconfirmed by the independent Institute for IT-Security: in AV-Test certification this year, Bosch Smart Home was again awarded the best possible rating.

With a turn of the hand, everything is under control with the Twist remote control

Comfortable operation at the next level: the Twist is the clear and flexible remote control for the Bosch Smart Home System. Not only is it portable, but it can also be used as a fixed control element on the wall, thanks to a practical magnetic bracket. The device is wireless and runs on batteries, with a battery life of up to 2 years. With the energy-saving e-paper display, users always keep the overview. Whether it's lights in the bathroom, radiators in the bedroom or scenarios: everything that can be controlled using the Bosch Smart Home app can also be operated intuitively using the remote control – with the press of a button or a circular motion. A special Twist: users can even deactivate the alarm system with a turn of the hand – with a previously self-defined motion code.

Just as simple are the alternatives to Twist: smartphone, Universal Switch and voice control. The Bosch Smart Home System can be intuitively controlled in any situation. Besides the app, smartphone users can also create ideal scenarios as widgets – and conveniently start these with the tap of a finger directly on the home screen of their smartphone or tablet.

The Universal Switch and the Universal Switch Flex are just as perfectly thought out. With these elements (available mobile or mounted), the Bosch Smart Home System can be comfortably controlled throughout the entire house. Via the Bosch Smart Home app, up to four functions and scenarios can be individually set and called up.

If you happen to have your hands full, you can also use the Amazon voice service, Alexa, to control the entire Bosch Smart Home System with speech. In doing so, it is possible to control devices and activate scenarios without lifting a finger.

Automation: simply automate routine activities

With the scenario manager, daily routines – such as turning off all of the lights – can be carried out with a click or completely automated. The connected devices in the Bosch Smart Home System are true communication geniuses: concrete tasks can be automatically set to start up cleverly linked processes. The possibilities are boundless.

This allows for individual automations – as diverse and flexible as the user's everyday routine. The activation of concrete functions can now also be linked to conditions: weekdays, time periods or the status of door/window contact, for example. For instance, users can be notified if the garage door is open past 10 p.m. Or, it is possible to establish different daily routines for waking up or going to bed for weekdays and on the weekend. Thus, ideal scenarios can be tailor-made for specific conditions: light, heating, electronic devices, shutters or the alarm system are turned on or off as desired. It is even possible to have scenarios activate at dawn or dusk, according to the day.

Scenarios such as "leaving home" or "good morning" are already predefined. These can easily be added and manually activated. Either the tap of a finger on the Universal Switch, the corresponding app widget or the Bosch Smart Home app – or the Twist remote control –is all you need. The active triggering of scenarios is particularly practical for irregular but repeated activities.

HomeConnect: integrating household devices

Growth for the Bosch Smart Home family: an increasing number of Bosch and Siemens HomeConnect products are being integrated into the system, step by step. That delivers even more convenience and saves time – when the devices are flexibly connected in automation with the scenario manager, for example. Thus, the coffee machine becomes a part of the "good morning" scenario, if you want. Or, the washing machine makes the Philips Hue lights light up red as soon as it is ready to be emptied. Already intelligently connected, today: all HomeConnect washing machines, dryers, dishwashers and coffee machines from Bosch and Siemens.

Seamless cooperation in the Smart Home System

For Bosch Smart Home, users and their needs take centre stage. Therefore, individual solutions are developed for more pleasant, healthy and safe everyday life: but that is all just the beginning. The goal is the perfect collaboration of all the components in a connected house.

Be it a radiator thermostat, a smart plug, light or shutter control, a smoke detector, a motion detector or even starter packs for security and indoor climate: for the entire home, Bosch Smart Home combines innovative solutions that are cleverly connected to each other. For example, the door/window contact from the indoor climate starter pack and the smoke detector are also part of the alarm system. If the door/window contact reports the opening of a window while in absence mode – that is, a burglary – this triggers the smoke detector alarm. Or, the motion detector can be used on the one hand as a part of the alarm system, and on the other hand for controlling lights. These are only two examples of how different elements of the Bosch Smart Home System grow together. The centrepiece in the process is the Smart Home Controller, which connects all of the components in the house with each other, into a comprehensive Smart Home System.

The Twinguard smoke detector combines even more functions into one device: it also measures air quality and warns you when humidity is too high, among other things. Thus, both security and health are simultaneously supported.

Thanks to radio technology, Bosch Smart Home can easily be installed by anyone, wirelessly and with step-by-step instructions. For anyone who wants to have things even easier, there is assistance at your request, through the installation service from our cooperation partner, Mila. The control functions just as intuitively as the installation: simply via an app for your smartphone or tablet, the Universal Switch, the Twist remote control or entirely automatically, with individually-defined scenarios and automation.
Bosch is continuously developing and refining the entire Smart Home portfolio. This also includes free software updates, by means of which all solutions stay up-do-date – and even continue to learn.
