Mmmm, nothing makes the house feel more homey than the smell of a cake baking in the oven. But the smell of a roast or casserole will also bring the family to the table, full of anticipation. And it's not always easy to tell whether the food has been cooked to perfection. Thanks to intelligent ovens from Bosch and other home appliance brands, you will never again miss the perfect moment to take your dish out of the oven.
How Home Connect works with an oven
Smart ovens with the Home Connect function help you to succeed with your cooking and baking. They are equipped with sensors to help you perfect your dish, such as the PerfectBake baking sensor from Bosch. You can keep an eye on the cooking process using the Home Connect app, which will let you know when your food is done.
Once connected to the Home Connect app, the oven can use WiFi to do even more: The app contains seasonal recipe ideas along with the right settings for their preparation, which you can send directly to your smart oven. The oven then takes care of preheating until you are ready to put your dish in.
What are you waiting for? Take a look at the possibilities that the Home Connect oven has to offer.

Make breakfast a breeze
Morning routines can sometimes be a mad rush. Thankfully, today’s smart home appliances make things a whole lot more manageable. For example, you can use the Home Connect app to turn on your oven and heat up some breakfast rolls while you hang the laundry or take the dog for walk. This useful app gives you access to a range of device features, partner services, and inspiring smart home ideas.
Intelligent baking with the Home Connect app
Preheating, controlling the temperature and finding the right baking time – with the Home Connect app, the oven will become your baking assistant and will let you know when your dish is ready via your smartphone.
Using the app, your Home Connect oven from Bosch or another home appliance brand can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet.
In addition, the Home Connect app always provides you with plenty of inspiration. You can discover seasonal recipes, shopping ideas, recommendations, and tips to get the most from your smart oven and its helpers.
If you want, the app can temporarily take over controlling your oven, including baking settings, while you are on the go. But you continue to have full control over all settings, including the childproof lock.
The app is intuitive to use and the user interface is designed to be simple.
Use the demo appliances right now to see how you can control appliances with the Home Connect app – even if you haven't yet connected an appliance up to Home Connect.
Analysis and service via remote diagnostics
Even a smart oven is not infallible. If your oven isn't working the way it should, you don't have to wait for an engineer to come to your house.
Just call the Home Connect hotline and you will be connected directly to customer service. With your permission, the customer service representative can access your oven online and start remote diagnostics. Normally, the error message can be retrieved and the problem solved in this way. If an engineer does need to come in person, he or she can use the remote diagnostics analysis data to prepare for maintenance tasks or repairs on your appliance. This saves you both time and money.
