requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

access Bluetooth settings
Allows the app to configure the local Bluetooth phone, and to discover and pair with remote devices.

take pictures and videos
Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

change network connectivity
Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    Most of the time it does not connect. Can't update appliance software due to "Not on the same netwot" error. Can't disable ipv6. Beta test program is full. A waste of time! Reply to the suggested fix: "Turn on wifi on your router": This tip is as useless as your app, ty! I have even turned off mobile data on my phone and also installed your app on my wifi only ipad and it still does not work to install the software update for my bosh washing machine, it says "Not on the same network" LOL!

    I have no idea what it was, but after the terms updating all the connections were lost and I haven't succeed to reconnect them. After asking for the support, it suddenly turned back and look like rollback, and now all settings and connection back on my phone. The app itself is really useful and easy.

    I'm getting message "Unable to open door. Watter level too high. Please start "Empty" program first". Authorized service, after running few tests, confirmed that appliance is working properly and that is probably false positive from the app itself. No further progress has been made. It seems that cooperation between the service and devs is not the best.

    Work fine most of the time but is hit and miss if alexa notifies when the dishwasher is finished. Also if you don't acknowledge the notification on the app you end up with a notification every hour. When it comes to deleting these notifications you have to delete each individual one at a time. I have a lot built up over 6 months worth, it would be better if you could delete all old notifications with select all the delete.

    1hr of trying to get this to work with my new washing machine. I've given up. Why does this not work? Ah man, you website is absolutely terrible. Just loads of photos of couple and appliances. The guide just tells you to follow the instructions. How are you getting away with this? It's the worst possible website... Bosch, this is embarrassing surely!!!

    Mostly works but connection to washer is very slow and not reliable. Sometimes need to wait for couple of minutes to see the status. To interact with machine you need to allow it by pressing the button on machine every time. Same intermittent connection applies to google home connection which sometimes works and sometimes not. Google home sometimes tells me washing machine is running when actually its finished and unloaded, not good for a product costing more than 1k€

    Android users be warned! Recent versions don't work on Android 6.0.1 App works fine on iPad. Used to work on Android. Now gives error 1133 (no compatible browser) whenever I try to log in, even though Chrome, Firefox, Opera & original Internet browsers are all installed. Home Connect's reply just shows they haven't bothered to read my review properly. UPDATE (Feb-2021): Thank you for at last responding properly. Browser problem is now fixed. App seems to work well. Thanks!

    23 Feb 2021: Tried to log in with new app. Had to create new password. And still can't get in 7 Sept 2020 Update: I've waiteda year for Bosch to sort out the mess of its app. Ive downloaded the updated app and now I have successfully connected to my fridge. I can get alarms, change the temperature. That's progress. But the cameras don't work although I've activated them .How many years does it take to have a working app?? 25 Oct 2019 - Update: Nothing has changed. Still a terrible experience

    I had to buy Amazon Alexa just to use this oven as a smart home feature ( rest of the house runs by Google ) and even Alexa does not work properly. I am not sure if it's some sort of bug, however even when the oven is on and remote control is available Alexa does not recognise it and I have to use oven manually.

    In the 90s you had to be a network expert to connect devices. We are now in 2021, and still I have to manage obscure error codes, fish their meanings on tech support sites, or "try the pairing process again", wich I know will not work. Get your act together.

    The service fails when linking to Google Home "Couldn't update the setting. Check your connection". Now working, but the controls when linked to Google home are pretty limited to on and off so have to use this app or remote to control cooker hood speed.

    This app is capable to start remotely your brand new Bosch dishwasher, provided you go to the dishwasher and enable this amazing feature every single time. Basically it's like a phone that can only call people who are in front of you.

    It annoys me, first i could use it without a account, that was nice, start the app, set the time and go. but now I have to register and to type in my passport every time I want to use the app to set up the dishwasher, get lost that's annoying and I am fastest pressing the buttons. Using a app should save time and not take longer to access your device's than it takes to press the buttons.

    I was preparing the email with the data for Technical support and decided to make a final intent to see what error I'll get. This time the connection happend in a few seconds. 31.01: I've spent several hours in the last two days trying to connect Bosch washing machine with no success. The washing machine connects to the WiFi but the pairing with the application invariably fails with either using WPS function or not using it. I get various errors related with WiFi problems, fought with opening ports, didn't even find multicast-routing option on my router. It's absurd to have to do all this. We never had this kind of problems with other connected devices at home.

    Depends if the oven is enabled for remote connections. overall, my two top of the range Siemens ovens are not worth the money I paid. The app is average, but Siemens blame a European law. I'm sure someone will also say the app is not related to the ovens, but my experience if both has been poor Horrendous customer service from Siemens. Would I recommend Siemens. Never.

    Too many notifications that you cannot control. I don't need to know 5 times a day that salt is low in the dishwasher. Once a week is sufficient. On the other hand you don't want to turn them completely off, as it is useful to know when the programme is completed. It can be improved.

    The app on A9 cannot start. The error message is Whoops try again later. Update. I got the app working after 1-2 hours. Maybe a glitch in the network. The app works fine now. However, the there is an integration issue with Google voice commands as I cannot start the dishwasher with voice commands.

    Update - was sent a couple of PDF document containing information about Google Assistant, but it was of limited help. Didn't get a reply to my follow-up email. Essentially, all I know how to do via Google Assistant is power up and power down my devices. Would like worked examples. Original - Works ok, but would like deeper integration with Google Assistant - especially now that IFTTT has moved to a pay-to-use business model.

    the application works flawlessly. it's kind of a must to use with the current washing machine to use additional programs. I would like to have also a manual mode in order to adjust temperature/time etc on my own and the machine to choose the parameters left.

    App says connection between the smartphone and home connect server could not be established, yet the connection between the appliance (on the same wifi network) and the server is fine. Can't start the dishwasher with the app unless you press the remote start button on the appliance first, so becomes useless (I might as well just press the start button) Alexa app for the dishwasher is also missing for Australia so can't even use it to check the status.

  39. Vincent V. Kramar-avatar

    Vincent V. Kramar


    In context of a Cookit: I can mark recipes as favourites but there is no filter for favourite recipes. What's the point then? They also don't sync over to the appliance. Also not being able to switch the languages of the App, not allowing me to choose German if I wanted to read the recipes in German, even though the App is capable of it. Don't assume the App language based on the system language - provide the option to choose in the settings. Update:1 star, changing os language is not a solution

    1. It is extremely annoying that idos notifications keep on re-enabling themselves somehow. I must have disabled them at least 20 times, but strangely the one thing where you could sell a subscription keeps popping up. 2. Network detection for app and appliance are not always reliable 3. Why does the app sometimes disconnect from the appliance WITHOUT telling me about it??

    I tried connecting to wifi but realised I was putting the wrong password in. It actually needs the temporary password they give in the instructions not your router one. That comes later. So once I realised my mistake it connected easily. I found it easier to go on line to the Neff website to register and get the extra two years warranty. Instructions are on the back of the paper instruction manual. Have not tried remote on mobile as yet.

    Difficult to get app connected to the machine. Often fail to connect while machine is visible in router as connected to network. Remote control only works after you manually pushed a button on the machine. There should be a function in the app to remote control without first going to machine. Reply to the response of Home Connect: That's my whole point; there should be a remote function to override the security and activate the machine remotely.

  72. Dmitri-avatar



    Home connect is working fine, but having people to login to download user manual for a dishwasher is a massive design failure. Furthermore, it's not possible to create an account within an app, user has to first go to browser, create Siemens account in proper regional site, then come back to app, login, download. Simple user manual should be part of an app! Not as pdf, but properly adapted for mobile screen including graphics. Even after registering to finnish site, I can't login via app.

    Don't waste money on WiFi machines. There is no functionality other than push notifications to your phone that the washing or drying is complete. I have yet to succeed in sending command to my machine. It's completely pointless and unfunctional. When I go through the 5 step process to create a wash it literally ignores my choices on the end screen and chooses randomly or resets to presets. Even then I cannot send the task to the machines. Time delay is also I function of which is pointless

    YOUR SALES AD IS VERY MISLEADING! Is this even capable of remote mobile start?

    Unreliable connectivity. Work fine if you use only a local connection but that looses you your notifications etc. Connections including to the cloud servers either never establish and you have to turn off/on appliance, or have to wait an hour for it to register. Not a great app, connectivity roulette needs to get resolved else it's a bit pointless as a feature...

    Buggiest app ever. Wifi connectivty is broken on bosch washing machines and their customer service are useless when it comes to troubleshooting.

    Setup is awful. Requires that the phone and the home appliance are both idle and you're not (for example) doing something else. Login system is awful. (Jumps out of the Android app onto a website, and the website is designed in such a way that chrome web browser's password save facility doesn't work and becomes intrusive). Requires that you log in each time, even on the app. Password reset system is awful. Password reset system is awful. Password reset system is awful. Password reset system is awful. (included more than once because that's what you will experience when trying to set it up). Having to redo all of the above whenever the app is updated is awful. Having to wait to login while a profile is set up after you've slogged through all of the above is awful, otherwise it'll tell you your credentials are wrong and you will go back to square one. In use, every single time you want to use the appliance remotely you will need to hit a button on the appliance beforehand rendering the thing practically useless; there's no way to set it up to allow true general remote access. Essentially, if you were designing this type of system from scratch and used people who had no idea what they were doing, and tested everything in isolation from the real-world and from the other components of the system, this is what you would end up with, and I think that's what happened here. On the positive side, the lack of user-friendlyness means very few people are going to use this, so few people are going to experience it in its full horror, so I suppose that's a good thing. If anyone from Siemens/Bosch wants to contact me to get some education on how to develop applications that are user-friendly and actually useful, please feel free to email me. *edited two typos.

    Useless app in my mind. I have bought an induktion cooking appliance. I thought that the home connect meant that I can control the heat level of the cooking zones from the phone. This is in fact possible - only problem is that it needs to be verified from the cooking appliance?!? I don't understand the point of being able to set it from the phone? EDIT: if this is the reason it should not be possible at all from the phone. May i suggest that this could be disabled by the user...

Raised the issue with support to get a response 48 hours later saying it was sent and to check my inbox. I've asked for a new one to be sent because I can't log into the account to use the app. I've had no response from support.

    After the update it doesn't work any more. It says disconnected - but doesn't tell you how to reconnect. It says you have messages, but not how to get rid of them. It says you can do this and that and the other if you buy more and more and that's all you get, bland, useless intrusive advertising. Before, I was getting notified when it finished and I could quickly get overviews and the status. Now I just get useless marketing. Can I change settings? Nope. Apparently not if I am disconnected.

    Poor execution, indeed. Wouldn't let me log back in after logging me out. Log on server failed. I paid 800€ for a dishwasher and I'm not even able to use some of its features. I am greatly disappointed. Either integrate Bosch into another app or throw that feature away altogether, because you're unable to provide what you're advertising. EDIT: System started working again, albeit still unstable, it's now usable. Rating increased to 3 stars. Keep working.

    Ever since the update, I've been logged out and my appliances have been removed. Trying to log back in is impossible. It'll give me a login screen and when I enter my details, nothing happens and it asks me to log in again. EDIT: Apparently they can't read either. I know it should require only one single login, but it won't even do that

    Seems impossible to login on the new app. Nothing happens when I click login, other than the blue button changes colour a few seconds. No error is given. Update: with the December update I now get Error 1133, no compatible browser found. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and re-registered but same error when clicking the login button. I have tried to set Chrome, Samsung Internet and Opera browser as default browser. Now what do I do? Haven't been able to use the service for months now.

    Not very good. Works after a fashion. I get numerous spurious notifications of events that haven't happened and very late notifications, not much point being told the timer had finished 3 hours after, most things would be burnt to a crisp by then. As a student project I think this app would get a pretty reasonable grade but have a comment like "needs refinement and bugs addressing". As a piece of software from one of the world's largest domestic appliance manufacturers it is pitiful.

    The home connect app is really the most useless feature of the connected devices of Siemens/Bosch. I bought the dishwasher to remotely control it. Not with a manual action in between to activate remote start first from the dishwasher itself. And don't provide the standard response that it is for safety reasons blabla unwanted objects in the dishwasher. Just put a clear disclaimer on activating permanent remote start. And let the owners of the device make this decision them self. Its really pointless to provide " smart devices" that are actual stupid. Whats next Philips hue will provide security measurements that you can activate your lights through the app, but first you need to toggle the switch manually otherwise it can happen that something is laying on the lamp and there could be a burn risk. Common update the device and provide the functionality people payed for with a disclaimer or something!

    The app won't even launch. I tried to launch the app but it just said "Oops! We're sorry. It looks like something went wrong. Please try again" I thought that maybe this was because I was on a 5 ghz wifi, so I connected to my 2.4 ghz wifi, stopped the app and relaunched it. I got the message: "Oops! We're sorry. It looks like something went wrong. Please try again" So i tried turning off wifi on my phone - same story. Then I tried the app on my iPhone - same story.

    Terrible, always logging me out. I just want to control a washing machine this app is frustrating beyond belief. I wish I had just bought a normal machine. It forgets my password all the time forcing me to reset it, then half the time the password reset website simply fails. I've have a mind to report the whole home connect system to trading standards as it's not fit for purpose.

    Appliances all forgotten after update . Cannot remember PW. PW reset does not work. Life too short. Update 13012020. All devices lost again. Need to walk round each device with phone and relevant installation manuals. Each device requires a you to log in all over again. Not all devices detected . I am uninstalling this for a better life. But how to stop the hood bleating annoyingly for it's useless wifi connection??

    Many thanks to Home Connect Team for offering to help when I had a problem connecting the appliance to the App. I tried again this evening and it has, despite a bit of confusing thrashing around in the App, connected.

    Omslachtig, werkt slecht --- thanks for your reply. I gave up on this, as I do not expect that connecting my oven to Wi-Fi will make a big difference in my life after all. It was a nice gimmick, which i wanted to give a try. After wasting 15 minutes of my time, I gave up. For this kind of app, which brings a very limited advantage to my life, it is either that it works directly in one go or I will give up on it.

    The remote start basically auto disable on daily basis (no idea what's the pattern) and app require you to confirm in the oven the auto start permission. This basically defeats the purpose of using remote start functionality. No Google Now integration, no pop up in the notification when oven job is done so you could turn off alarm. Basically, paying for WiFi in Siemens oven makes no sense with this software.

    Remote start (the main feature!) is incredibly unreliable. It randomly resets itself and you can't re-enable remotely. I make a point of turning it off and on in the morning if I plan to use it, then by the evening it has quite often become disabled again. This is very annoying!

    The new app is terrible, would love to get back the old one! The old one worked ok. Who came up with the stupid idea that I have to scroll vertical to reach my 6 different appliances? That's just insane! On a mobile phone you scroll up and down. Totally useless now. I scroll back and forth several times before I get and overview which appliance I have to click. Best example how design does NOT have to be applied.

Original Review: Terrible software. WiFi details have changed so the app has stopped working but there is no way to change the WiFi details! I just get an error message "WiFi is not working"! The help messaging functionality within the app doesn't work - it asks for username&password but it just rejects them!

    Most frustrating app I think I've ever installed. At first it wouldn't install, phone restart required, then it didn't tell me I needed to create an account before it could find my connected drier (just said "oops something went wrong"), now drier is connected to my WLAN but the app thinks it isn't. All you needed was a web client, this app is useless. FYI: put phone into airplane mode then re-enable Wifi, then it will find your appliance. EDIT: once working it's great, just bad OOB experience.

    Significant problems still remain. For some reason the microwave function will not remote start. All other oven functions are fine but not microwave. Also, I constantly have to enable remote start on the oven. Surely I should only have to do this once. It feels very buggy or beta like.

    App is utterly useless. The main reason i would want want to connect to my appliances is to remotly turn them on. This one feature is disabled for "Safety Resons" unless you press a button on the machine. It renders the whole point of the app pointless. I presume the safety resons are to stop a child climbing in the machine,closing the door and you turning it on??? Dumbest idea. dont waste your money on Smart Appliances that have had the useful functionality removed.

    This app was bs before and still is. Every single time I need to get a new password, and I have a password manager that is working fine. This app just dont accepts anything. My account gots blocked for 60 seconds, for 120 seconds. I just set a new password and when I retype it, its wrong again.

    Doesn't work as well as the old app. Appliances often showing up as ERROR. I remove and re-add successfully, and later they are ERROR again.

Effectively left with an oven that cannot be remote controlled as sold to me so want a refund from Siemens for both the £1000 ovens i have bought. Many people told its a "safety feature" its not when talking to customer services its a known problem!! So fix it or taking legal action

    Was difficult to connect my appliances to my WiFi as the app didn't seem to make a HomeConnect WiFi access point as indicated in the instructions. The app itself is useful and gives you more or less full control of your oven. The biggest problem I have is there's no control of the notifications sent to your phone after a programme has finished. We use the microwave a lot of times a day and everytime it finishes I get a notification. Notifications should be optional and perhaps allow for filters

    Convenient app that used to allow me to operate my Dutch wash machine in English as I'd otherwise not be able to. I liked the flexible wash program offerings and the phone beeps when the cycle completes. Then, in a genius move, the developers started to remove features that allowed control, limiting the apps ability. Bosh, when contacted supported this as the app is limited? So what was good, has now been redacted and made abysmal. Bring back the old version.

    Pretty bad. Was hard to pair the washing machine. You need to push a button on the physical machine *every time* to use the app, for no good reason ("safety"). App is a badly formatted generic framework app, so menu options flow off the edge of the screen etc... And the advertised option to specify economy 7 times doesn't exist, it wants approved energy partners (which links you to a German website). Machine works well though, and the Alexa cycle complete notification also works well.

    While this app is really useful, there are some bugs: - For the "empty drip trays" notification the app goes in a loop and sends me literally 30 times the same notification to empty my drip trays in a minute. Happens with other notifications from the app too - Google Assistant functionality is advertised but my coffee machine won't show up in the Google Home app even though I've linked my account several times, there are some issues that need fixing with the integration there

    My only big problem is that "allow remote start" resets alot, which means you have to enter the menu physically on the oven to grant access to remote operation..

    could do a lot more.I bought iq800 washing mashine...this app should show the actual water temperature and estimated time for warmup to reach the set temperature. should show the actual spinning speed if it's reduced from the set speed. this program could be so much more informative...but I guess Siemens has axed the development of this app. and now it's just as underdevoloped as any. does only the minimum things...on and off remotely...so that you can rip off extra just to claim that it has wifi

    I think it would be useful if the developers could incorporate a button that you can program with an off-peak tariff when electricity is cheaper. So for example if electricity is cheap between 1am and 5am, the delay start could adjust to this time. This function is on ev chargers...
