For busy households, a connected home is the way forward. It takes those futuristic ideas that we know so well from sci-fi shows and plants them firmly in your home, saving you time and effort. It’s no exaggeration to say that Siemens Home Connect has the potential to revolutionise your home. So, what exactly is it?
Siemens Home Connect – In a Nutshell
Home Connect essentially allows you to control your appliances from an app on your phone or tablet. Anyone who controls their home heating with Nest will recognise how useful such apps can be (and Nest are a partner of Siemens Home Connect, drawing that functionality into the Home Connect app too). If you don’t and you’re a little sceptical, the major benefits are highlighted below, but it’s important to recognise that Siemens Home Connect goes beyond Siemens appliances.
The system is designed to be convenient and bring in as many partners as possible. That means you can set the app up so that it knows when your Bosch dishwasher is running out of tabs and can either alert you or purchase more via Amazon Dash Replenishment. Perhaps the ability to automatically replenish your dishwasher tabs when needed is a small thing, but it’s those dozens of small things that stack up to create a life based on the real priorities and not the necessities.
The Benefits of Siemens Home Connect
Put simply, a connected home is one that runs smoothly and gives you more time to concentrate on the important things. Very few people enjoy planning their lives around a washing cycle, but that’s something we’ve grown used to. Siemens Home Connect brings a new level of integration to your home that removes the labour from the everyday.
Here are just a few of the intelligent ways Siemens Home Connect can work in your home:
- Use Amazon Alexa to control your coffee machine, oven or washing machine.
- Use smart home technology to create your ideal way to start the day – wake to the music you like while your coffee machine is preparing your morning coffee and the house temperature is ambient enough to risk stepping out of bed.
- Get kitchen assistance with recipes, tutorials and even ingredient delivery services accessible from your phone.
- Set washing cycles to run while you’re out so they’ll be ready when you get home.
- Use your own solar energy instead of selling back to the grid.
Kitchens Become the Technological Frontier
At Mihaus, we recognise that the kitchen is the hub of many homes. It’s where families gather to cook together and often to eat together too. If you improve how your kitchen works, there’s more time to spend on the important things in life. Tell Alexa to make you a coffee so that you don’t interrupt a conversation or find a new recipe that you can cook as a family with the help of walk-through videos.
The beauty of Siemens Home Connect from our point of view is that it’s only going to grow as more partners come on board and bring different services into the mix. That’s exciting for any householder eager to explore the possibilities of a truly connected home, and we’re eager to see how the technology continues to develop.
