The window contact sensors help Sandra and Jérôme to do both. The contacts are connected to the thermostat – on the radiator, so when the window is open, the radiator is turned down, or off, thus reducing the family’s energy consumption. Jérôme has also set the contacts up to set off the alarm system, securing their home in case of break-ins.
Crucially, Sandra and Jérôme are also in complete control of their Smart Home data. They can decide where it is stored – locally or in the cloud. And they can rest assured, knowing that all Bosch Smart Home devices are fully encrypted and regularly updated with the latest software. Sandra was also surprised at how fast and easy the installation was, “I was a bit sceptical at first, because there was so much technology, I really thought it would take ages, but it was actually super fast,” she said.
Sandra is not the only one who has niggling doubts about leaving her windows open when she’s out of the house. Amongst those surveyed by Bosch, many female respondents expressed their wish to be able to control aspects of their home when they’ve left their house in a rush, are out and about, or on holiday. Sandra is able to banish those doubts by controlling her windows and doors remotely with the Bosch Smart Home app.
More than 230 million homes will be connected by 2020. Bosch conducted a Twitter survey to ask people what they know about smart home solutions. It turns out smart homes can do more than many respondents thought possible.
