Stuttgart/Las Vegas. Bosch Smart Home is synonymous with smart innovations and intelligently connected devices that make homes safer and optimize living environments. At the CES in Las Vegas, the company is therefore presenting new products, features and interesting new partners that enable users to enjoy even greater security, living comfort and freedom in 2020.

More freedom, more potential – Bosch opens its Smart Home System

Loyal Apple fans in particular have yet another reason to look forward to the New Year because the Apple Home App will soon be able to control the Bosch Smart Home System. In combination with an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or smart HomePod loudspeaker, this offers numerous operating options, including interaction with other Apple HomeKit-capable devices. After the voice services from Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant have already been integrated, during the course of 2020 the Bosch Smart Home System will also be conveniently controllable via Siri, Apple’s voice assistant.

Starting this year, Bosch Smart Home will also offer an open interface for selected partners. This will enable the partners to integrate Bosch Smart Home devices into their own solutions via a cloud API.

Thanks to this integration, the partner apps will be able to display the status of Bosch Smart Home devices and services, e.g. the alarm system. Furthermore, the partner apps will also be able to control the devices. For users, this capability opens up a wide range of potential applications outside the Bosch Smart Home for a safer life and an optimized living environment. The first partner apps will be able to control Bosch Smart Home cameras as early as the spring of 2020.

Bosch Smart Home is taking the first visible step together with Home Connect as its partner. Home Connect combines various areas such as security, lighting, sun-protection and entertainment on a cross-brand platform. The interplay between Home Connect and Bosch Smart Home will be demonstrated in a live show at Bosch’s stand at the CES.

The Bosch Smart Home alarm system becomes even more secure

The Bosch Smart Home alarm system offers reliable protection against burglary and fire. In the event of an alarm, it notifies residents directly onsite via audible signals and also provides remote notification by sending a live image to the user’s smartphone. The alarm system also offers greater security within the user’s own four walls by integrating the control of roller shutters and lighting. In the event of a fire, all networked roller shutters are automatically opened to quickly assure that escape and rescue routes are clear and unobstructed. As an additional alarm function in the Bosch Smart Home System, the lighting control system provides even better deterrence against uninvited guests in the event of a burglary. The Bosch Smart Home System triggers red Philips Hue lamps to begin flashing and automatically lights up all lamps that are integrated via flush-mounted light switches.

Intelligent heating becomes even smarter

Bosch Smart Home enhances the efficiency and convenience of heating with various networked products such as radiator thermostats, door/window contacts with ventilation detection, room thermostats for underfloor heating and individualized time programmes. New: at CES, Bosch Smart Home presents the room thermostat for optimizing room temperature. Thanks to its wireless power supply and radio connection, the room thermostat can be conveniently installed anywhere in the room. In conjunction with the smart radiator thermostats, the desired room temperature is thus achieved and maintained precisely where it is needed.

In addition, the room thermostat will soon also be able to control electric radiators connected via adapter plugs. You can find further information here .
