There are four different safety levels:*

Safety level green: Very easy

Once the appliance is paired, the Remote Start function is available instantly. There is no need to re-activate the feature when you want to remote control the appliance again. This safety level applies to Home Connect coffee machines, fridges, hoods, and Roxxter.

Safety level yellow: Easy

On this safety level you need to push the Remote Start button every time you want to start the appliance remotely. This safety level applies mainly to your Home Connect oven. Within a 15 minute time window, Remote Start remains active even if you open the oven door to check on your food. If you open the oven door at a later point, Remote Start will be deactivated. In order to re-activate Remote Start, you need to push the button again.

Safety level orange: Medium

On this level you need to push the Remote Start button every time you want to start the appliance remotely, without exception. This safety level is there to stop household accidents from happening. That way, Remote Start is deactivated as soon as someone opens the door of an appliance, i.e. of the washer, dishwasher or dryer. In order to re-activate Remote Start, you need to push the button again.

Safety level red: Not permitted

Remote Start is not permitted on these Home Connect appliances due to local jurisdiction and safety regulations. This safety level applies to the hob.

Once you activate Remote Start, you can enjoy the benefits of starting your Home Connect appliance remotely even when you’re miles away, provided that you are connected to the internet. Check which safety level applies, and then push the Remote Start button to activate the feature.
