At present, home appliances with Home Connect are being offered by the brands Bosch, Siemens and Gaggenau. Mykie itself is still a concept. Here you can access an overview of available Home Connect home appliances .

How is it ensured that Mykie is not hacked, and that someone can use the information to break into my house or take over the camera?

Both data security for users and data protection have top priority for all Home Connect products. These aspects will therefore always be incorporated and taken very seriously during the development process for Mykie (concept).
