Home Connect from Bosch & Siemens


Link your Home Connect devices now with the iHaus App

Your iHaus App now automatically recognizes Home Connect devices from BSH Home Appliances. Once set up they can be controlled in addition to other IoT and KNX devices in your smart home and also via voice command or on your way. That is how it works: 

Home Connect App

1. Adding a new device: To integrate your new Home Connect devices into your iHaus system, set them up in the Home Connect app first. Follow the instructions of the manual and connect it to your WLAN. This step is necessary, so the iHaus App will recognize it. 

Home Connect App

2. Device installed: If the Home Connect app has detected and set up a washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine or the new oven, you will see options for operating the appliances in the app. Now you can operate them digitally.

3. Integrating the device into iHaus: Synchronise the devices in your smart home with the iHaus App regardless of the brand and system. It recognises the appliances automatically, if they have been set up correctly in the Home Connect app. Just select "+ Add" to create a LINKIT.

4. Smart kitchen: Control your Home Connect system using the iHaus App by integrating devices as LINKITs. So you see coffee machine, dishwasher, oven and washing machine in one screen and can even create smart home scenes with SUM-ITUP and control them with Alexa.


"Alexa, turn on COFFEE MACHINE!" Once your Home Connect devices and Amazon Echo is linked to the iHaus App, you can start using them with Alexa. Manage your individually compiled smart home situations, the SUM-ITUPs, via voice command, regardless of the brand or system. When you leave the house, Alexa takes care of your devices, and ensures that all lights, appliances and heating are turned off. Or say "Alexa, turn on coffee machine" to heat it up. She will even make you a cappuccino when you ask for it!

Note: The linking to Alexa only works with an active 24/7 Server mode

Home Connect App von iHaus

The iHaus App is available in the Google Play Store for Android smartphones and tablets, and in the Apple App Store for iPhones and iPads. It is important that the device runs in 24/7 server mode, and it’s generally best to use an older model to control your smart home with the iHaus App. This enables access at any time and from anywhere.

You can create smart home SUM-IT[UP] scenes now and set up them up as you like. Activate these scenes with Alexa and Amazon Echo via voice command. TRIGGER is another option, which works according to the “if-this-then-that” principle. Instruct your SONOS speakers for example to turn on a certain song when the washing machine is ready.


Whether it’s a dishwasher, a washing machine, coffee maker or oven: the Home Connect devices from BSH (Bosch & Siemens) are now ready to use as soon as they have been set up in the app. They can be linked, but also connected to other IoT devices, Apple Home Kit and the KNX bus system.

Now a range of specific refrigerators, washing machines, dryer, coffee machines, dishwasher, kitchen hoods, cookers and ovens from BSH can be controlled with an app.


Since the pioneering years of White Goods in Germany in the early 1920s, the Siemens brand stands for high-quality and long-lasting household appliances. Home Connect, which has developed the smart home automation system, is a subsidiary of the BSH Bosch Siemens Group. The Home Connect app supports all BSH smart home appliances that are equipped with a Wifi chip.
