Your data security is our number one priority. The Home Connect app has been tested by TÜVTrustIT and the system meets the highest security standards. The transmission of appliance-specific data and personal data is of course encrypted.
Access to the Home Connect app and control of your household appliances is only possible through your personal account, which is protected by your password. Accordingly, you should not share your user data with anyone and you should always 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 purchase a home appliance with Home Connect functionality. For example, you can take a peek inside a fridge, use the easy start assistant to find the perfect washing programme or try out how the dishwasher programs are set. In addition, there is a selection of recipes available, as well as cooking tips and tricks.
At the present time, you can use the Home Connect app to control household appliances from our partner brands Bosch and Siemens. In order to use Home Connect, you first need to download the app and register for Home Connect with your name and email address. Then all you need is an appliance with Home Connect functionality, a mobile device (tablet and/or smartphone) and a Wi-Fi router with Internet access.

Ratings and Reviews
Used for a dishwasher
Very easy, but sometimes fiddly, app to use. I use it just for a dishwasher and the seems geared towards a connected house, and if Siemens is installed in my whole house the whole app makes sense.
However, it keeps track of the number of tablets I have left and reminds me to add salt and the clean the machine in a timely manner, which should mean the whole thing lasts longer. Have the machine for 6 months now and so far all is well.
I’ve had my machine a few months now and the app has helped. I use it for two things. Coffee World (which needs to be able to load/store more than one preset in the main menu) is a good addition as it gives you coffees from all around the world. The best bit for me is I can wake up and start the rinse and it’s done by the time I get down stairs. It’s not be being lazy. It’s me being advanced old people.
Great app for controlling appliances.
This is a great app for helping control our Bosch appliances. Can put a beef joint into the oven, go out to walk the dog and then turn on the oven, select temp. Etc and start it cooking from remote. Only gripe is the coffee machine remote usage is kinda nulled by the fact the appliance always rinses, so you can’t put a cup under it and make it remotely in the morning from the luxury of your bed.
