Stuttgart/Berlin. Bosch Smart Home opens a new chapter in the convenient control of Smart Home systems: the Twist universal remote control. The unit allows you to control all important devices, functions and scenarios that are normally managed in the Bosch Smart Home app – without the need for a smartphone. From your alarm system to your bathroom lamps and bedroom heating down to the “coming home” scenario, the Bosch Smart Home Twist gives you convenient control over your entire system.

A flexible smart-home remote control with a twist

Bosch understands that you might not always have your smartphone or tablet at hand in your home. This is why it has developed Twist, a flexible remote control that allows your entire family to use the Bosch Smart Home system. Thanks to the magnetic wall bracket, you can use your Twist as a fixed control element or a portable device. Simply fix the wireless bracket to your wall and attach and detach your Twist as you please. The device has a clear, uncomplicated design and can be used by any resident in any part of your house.

When attached to the wall bracket, the Twist comes with an extra “twist”: instead of using the four buttons, you can operate the remote control intuitively by twisting it gently to the left or right. You can also define a custom movement pattern that deactivates your Bosch Smart Home alarm system. When a member of your family comes home, they can simply activate the pattern – for example, two twists to the left and one to the right – to deactivate the alarm system quickly and safely.

What about the design? Thought through down to the last detail.

A minimalist design with maximal function: the clear, sophisticated appearance of the Twist brings a visual highlight to your wall or coffee table. Equipped with an e-paper display, the sleek remote control blends neatly into any living environment. Its menu, too, is kept minimalistic: all functions can be controlled intuitively via icons by using the four buttons or the twisting motions. In addition, the e-paper display offers optimum readability through high contrast and is also energy-saving, so that a long battery life of up to 2 years is ensured.

The clear and tidy e-paper display and the symbol-based menu make the operation of your Bosch Smart Home system simple and straightforward for any family member – from the youngest to the oldest. The device displays status information about all current settings, so you can always keep an eye on what’s what.
