Health and enjoyment start with fresh food. Whether you like to stroll through the weekly market to hunt down crisp vegetables or prefer to get your vitamins from the supermarket, at the end of the day, a refrigerator and freezer set to the right temperature are vital when it comes to keeping your food fresh for as long as possible.

How Home Connect works for refrigerators and freezers

Smart Home Connect refrigerators and freezers from Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau, and NEFF help you to enjoy tasty and nutritious food. When networked with the Home Connect app, they become both an expert on freshness and a useful shopping assistant.

The Home Connect app provides you with tips on how to store your food correctly in your refrigerator and freezer and how to set your appliances to the perfect temperature. It's really practical: The refrigeration and freezing levels can be set individually using the app – anywhere and at any time.

A quick glance at the Home Connect app is enough for you to see which foods are still available in your intelligent refrigerator and which you need to buy in.

Your food stocks in your smart refrigerator at a glance

With the Home Connect app, you know what food you already have at home. Simply take a look at the app to see whether you need to buy in more food or whether your refrigerator is already well stocked.

Two cameras integrated into the refrigerator take a photo each time the refrigerator door is closed. This image is then encrypted and sent directly to your smartphone via the Home Connect app. This means that you know what's in your refrigerator at all times.

Remote control for your smart refrigerator

The Home Connect app helps you to save energy. You can use the remote control to set the temperature. If you go away for a few days, you can place your appliance into holiday mode. This works wherever you are, as long as you have WiFi. You can also use ECO mode to ensure sufficient refrigeration along with top energy efficiency.

If your refrigerator is not closed properly, you'll immediately get a message on your smartphone.

Flash-freezing for a vitamin boost

It's great that some freezers have a Super Freeze setting. This allows you to quickly chill your food or drinks in order to retain all of their vitamins and nutrients. Super Freeze can be activated using the Home Connect app.

With Super Freeze, you balance out the temperature fluctuations that occur when you place food or drinks at room temperature into the freezer.

Frequently asked questions

What can a smart refrigerator do?

Smart refrigerators with the Home Connect function help you to save energy. Their modern sensor technology keeps an eye on the technical processes. For example, the temperature of your smart refrigerator or freezer can be selected individually in order to reduce electricity consumption. Integrated cameras work via the Home Connect app to tell you when food in your refrigerator is running low. The app also tells you if your refrigerator or freezer door hasn't been closed properly.

Can I retrofit my own refrigeration appliances?

Retrofitting is possible but not recommended. A solution installed later on is relatively expensive and often does not include the same features as a solution that is integrated from the start. The Home Connect appliances are tailored to each other and networked via the app. You must therefore check carefully before exchanging or adding electronics.

What technology is necessary to use the Home Connect app?

Home Connect only works with smart refrigeration appliances from Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau, and NEFF that are designed for this functionality. In the Smart Home Appliances area, you can find out which home appliance types work with Home Connect. The Home Connect app can be used on smartphones and tablets and requires a WiFi connection. You can control your home appliances using multiple smart devices.
