BOSCH: Bringing Your Kitchen into the Future

The world is forever changing and consumers are always keen to upgrade to the latest technology in a bid to save time, energy and money. Bosch are one of the forerunners in innovations for the home. Today we are taking a look at the Bosch Home Connect – a system that brings smart technology to your household appliances and gives you total control using your smart phone or tablet. Products include fridge freezers, Washing Machines, Dishwashers, ovens and even coffee machines.

Excited? I am, so let’s take a closer look.

Smart Home Fridge


Home Connect fridges are fitted with interior door cameras that take pictures every time the door is closed and sends them to your mobile device. Out and about, and wondering what to have for dinner? Simply check the app to see what’s in your fridge, and pick up the essentials you may need. Saves multiple trips to the shops or buying things you already have.

The Home Connect Storage Guide is accessed via an app on your phone or tablet. This clever little app will keep your food fresher for longer by showing you their ideal storage temperatures and what section of the fridge is best to use.

If that wasn’t enough, the Home Connect fridge is a No Frost device – no more laborious defrosting and the LED lighting brings more light into your fridge and will last the lifetime of the appliance. No more hunting in the dark for your favourite chilled midnight snack.

The alarm system on these products not only alerts you to when you have left the door open, but even when you are out and about, push notifications can be sent to your phone letting you know if the door has been left open.

Along with the Multi Airflow System and FreshSense storage conditions, the Home Connect Fridge Freezers are the big boys of the fridge freezer world.


The Smart dishwashers are energy saving and have PerfectDry technology on everything from plastic to glass, saving you on tea towels! Imagine – perfectly dry dishes every time. Each dishwasher in the range is worth exploring. From silent programmes, to VarioFlex baskets, there is something to suit the needs of even the choosiest of domestic Gods and Goddesses.

Imagine having dishwashing tablets delivered to your door without having to remember to order them. With the Home Connect app, you simply activate the Dash Replenishment app and tablets magically appear at your door before you run out. One less thing for you to remember.


Using the Bosch Home Connect app helps you wash your clothes in the perfect conditions. You simply input what’s in your load, and it chooses the perfect program. This little gem of an app will even let you know whether you should take something out to be washed in a different program.

The Remote Rinse Hold app allows you to pause your wash wherever you are. What’s the point of that I hear you ask. Well, imagine if you put the wash on, and are called into work. On your way there, you remember you’ve left the machine on. Simply access the app and pause the wash before the final rinse. Once home you can start the final rinse, meaning fresher clothes and no musty smelling drum.

With many more exciting features such as the EcoBar Plus function, i-DOS fully automatic dosing of liquid detergent and the EcoSilence Drive, washing clothes has never been easier or more efficient.


Voice controlled cooking, remote delayed start and access to exciting new recipes are all part of the Home Connect system. The app simply needs a few taps and your oven is on. No more interrupting your favourite show or missing out on the chat round the table. Even Alexa can be part of the fun – just ask her to confirm the temperature to allow total hands free cooking.

Perhaps you’ve put the dinner in the oven and set the timer, meaning you come through the door and dinner is ready. But a delay on the roads or at work means dinner will be ruined. No more with Home Connect app – you can adjust the start time or press pause, saving your dinner and your sanity.

The Home Connect Recipe Book is filled with tried and tested recipes from the Bosh Home Economists from around the world. New recipes are added on a regular basis, allowing you to mix it up more often. Ready to go? Then send the settings straight from the app to your oven so it’s all ready to go when you are. Amazing, I know!


Coffee is a serious business and with the Bosch Home Connect Coffee Machine you will impress your friends and have a private barista in your home.

Able to create almost twenty stunningly good drinks, your friends will be queuing up to visit you. So many requests doesn’t need to be a problem though, because the Coffee Playlist feature means everyone can select their favourite drink and the machine makes them at your command. Not only will your friends admire and envy your coffee, but your innovative app as well.


Simple to set up and simple to use, the pre set options will get you up and running quickly and easily.

Home Connect uses the same security protocol as online banking so you can enjoy peace of mind and with trusted certification you can feel confident that you are in safe hands.
