BSH & EVEConnect

Controlling Home Appliances from the Car.

August 17th, 2018

Take a shower, have breakfast, quickly dress the children, and finally you’re in the car on the way to work. But suddenly your mind wanders back home: Did I really switch off the oven? Is the timer for the washing machine set properly? For Tesla drivers, a glance at their dashboard is all it takes to reassure them. That’s because they can now control their home appliances via EVEConnect accessing Home Connect from the monitor built into the car.

EVEConnect was designed that the service in the vehicle can be used effectively and safely. The controls are optimally positioned to avoid distracting the driver. Large scripts allow information to be perceived quickly. Large buttons help to perform tasks quickly and intuitively. The clearly presented appliance information allows the driver to conveniently access all Home Connect functions from the driver’s seat and thus turn off all home appliances when leaving home.

Anyone who wants to regularly spare themselves stress and hectic when leaving home can use the clever “Leaving Home” function. Thanks to so-called geofencing technology, EVEConnect recognizes when the driver leaves their driveway and automatically executes pre-defined actions via Home Connect. For example, users can specify that the coffee machine is switched off or switched to energy-saving mode – adapted to suit the individual needs or morning routines of the consumers. And the way to work is that bit more relaxed.

Note: EVEConnect's terms of use expressly indicate that consumers are responsible for complying with the applicable laws and local road traffic regulations. The driver should not operate the service while driving and must comply with local traffic regulations.
