Home Connect is the BSH app. This manufacturer makes Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau and Neff, among others. With Home Connect you can operate household appliances from these brands, provided they are suitable for this of course. All appliances are shown in the main window, for example your dishwasher and washing machine. Tap it to see the associated options. For example, with a load of laundry you can see which program has been activated and how long the program still needs.

Through the app you can also set up the devices for use with Amazon Alexa or Google Home. In practice, the assistance does require some practice: for example, when setting up a washing machine, it is not always clear what options are available. The app itself has a number of wizards on board, which are considerably more concrete. For example, based on a number of questions, the app determines which washing program should be activated. When the program is over, you will be notified afterwards.

We also find some inspiration articles for the products in the app, but we would have preferred to leave these out. You can give the individual devices a custom name. This comes in handy if you want to speak to them later via the voice assistant.
