Home Connect


The Home Connect integration allows users to integrate their home appliances supporting the Home Connect standard for Bosch and Siemens using the official cloud API.

The integration will add one Home Assistant device for each connected home appliance which will have the following entities:

  • A power switch
  • If the device has programs, switches for each of the individual programs will be added. Note that program options cannot be configured currently.
  • If the device has programs, a timestamp sensor for remaining time and a numeric sensor for the progress percentage.
  • For hood’s functional light a light switch including brightness control will be added.
  • For hood’s and dishwasher’s ambient light a light switch including brightness and color control will be added.

Note that it depends on the appliance and on API permissions which of the features are supported.
