Intelligent control

The connected door/window contacts help Sandra and Jérôme to do both. The contacts are connected to the thermostat on the radiator, so when the window is opened, the radiator is turned down or off, thus reducing the family’s energy consumption. Jérôme has also connected the contacts to smoke alarms and lighting to set up a fully functional alarm system. Windows that are forced open will trigger the alarm.

Privacy and data protection are non-negotiable at home. With Bosch Smart Home products, Sandra and Jérôme can decide where their data is stored – locally or in the cloud. And they can rest assured, knowing that all devices are fully encrypted and regularly updated with the latest software. Sandra was also surprised at how fast and easy the installation was. “I was a bit skeptical at first, because there was so much technology. I really thought it would take ages, but it was actually super fast,” she said.

Trust is good, control is better — from everywhere

Sandra is not the only one who has nagging doubts about properly closed windows and doors when she’s out of the house. Amongst those surveyed by Bosch, many female respondents expressed their wish to be able to check on aspects of their home when they’ve left in a rush, are out shopping, or on vacation. Sandra is able to banish those doubts by quickly checking with the Bosch Smart Home app: all windows are closed. She doesn’t need to worry about unexpected rain showers.
