Bosch Home Connect lets you control your kitchen from your phone

Bosch’s Home Connect appliances bring your kitchen into the future

Note: This article was first published on 4th June 2019.

Bosch's latest series of Home Connect appliances were built with convenience in mind, allowing you to monitor their status from anywhere just through an app on your phone. Bosch's latest washing machine, dishwasher, and dryer can be turned on and off remotely so you could, for example, schedule your washing to start just before you leave the office and come back to fresh laundry.

The Bosch Home Connect refrigerator also contains an integrated camera that takes an image of your fridge's content and sends it directly to your phone. This lets you know what's inside so you won't miss out on your essential grocery shopping needs. The Home Connect application will also let you know which space within the fridge is best for which type of food, so you can maintain everything at optimal freshness.

If you’re a coffee lover, you’ll love being able to get any of the world’s famous coffee specialties at the touch of the button on the Bosch Home Connect coffee machine. That means you can enjoy anything from an Australian Flat White to a Spanish Cafe Cortado from the comfort of your home. It'll even save your individual caffeine preferences and settings so you can wake up to a perfect cup of coffee, just the way you like it.

Finally, Bosch Home Connect has a cooking function that provides recipe suggestions and cooking tips from Bosch's recipe partner, Kitchen Stories. Using the Cookery book inside the app, the appropriate settings can be sent to the Bosch's smart oven and hob, so you can focus on preparation and watch for the cook of your food. Apparently, Bosch Home Connect has partnered up with retailers like Amazon, Lazada and RedMart, so the app will soon be able to order items like detergent, coffee capsules and food items for you. (The actual release date of this feature has yet to be announced.)

The Home Connect series will be available at the new UnserHaus Experience Centre next to the Bosch building, via their online store, or from Lazada. Prices range from S$2,000 and S$5,000.
