Connecting in the kitchen: The advantages of smart home appliances
The kitchen has always been the heart of a home and keeping the rhythms of that heart in check has become even easier with Home Connect – a digital system that allows you to remotely control and monitor your Bosch, Gaggenau, and NEFF appliances from your smart device.
The opportunities Home Connect offers for a seamless kitchen experience are many, starting with that first coffee of the morning, which can begin brewing with the push of a button on your phone from bed.
Cooking becomes all the more convenient, too, with smart ovens able to pre-heat as you head home from work, making for swifter dinner prep at the end of a long day. Entertaining also becomes a breeze, with the oven able to be switched on or off remotely. When an alert comes through to your phone that your entrée has finished cooking, for example, the oven can be switched off while you finish a pre-dinner drink with guests in the garden.
Home Connect means the status of each appliance can be monitored remotely, too. Peace of mind is at hand as you check the oven really was switched off before you stepped out the door, while refrigerators can also be adjusted for energy consumption via a switch to “holiday” mode in the Home Connect app.
The system also offers other practical tools for ensuring your home appliances run smoothly, with remote diagnostics able to alert you if a filter needs changing, for example.
Bosch, Gaggenau, and NEFF appliances can be easily connected to Home Connect through your Wi-Fi network with no additional hardware necessary, while settings for each appliance can be adapted to you and your home’s individual needs. Wherever you are and whatever you need doing, a simple and convenient solution is at your fingertips with your Home Connect-enabled appliances.
