One App. For You. “What sounds like the slogan of start-ups, comes from the marketing department of a German company. With this slogan BSH Bosch and Siemens Home Appliances advertises for its new product called “Home Connect.” With this application, home devices can be networked and controlled by smartphone or tablet. It is the world’s first solution, in which more than one brand or model can be controlled in a single app, it says at BSH. At the International Consumer Electronics Show (IFA), the manufacturer wants to introduce the website, the app as well as first networked appliances from Bosch and Siemens.
Home Internet-connected devices – the development shows that it was a good idea to bring washing machines, dryers, refrigerators and ovens on the Ifa.

Both areas are growing together over the Internet.American households are relatively high standard
American households are relatively high standard
“The American households already have very good with home appliances,” says Markus Güntsch by the market research company GfK. “In no other country in Europe, the decor is as high quality as in this country. Since it is difficult to continuously add insult to getting a. “The manufacturers try anyway. And they succeed also. “The market has grown in recent years in the high single digits,” says Güntsch. Currently, there are several trends that could overlook the manufacturer also optimistic about the future. “On the one hand, the propensity is still at a very high level,” says Güntsch and refers to the recent GfK consumer climate index.

In the first half of 2014, there were already almost 3.6 billion euros, about four percent more than in the first half of last year. “We expect that the market for the full year will also increase by two to three percent in the crowd and around three to four percent in sales,” says market researcher Güntsch. The trend in prices while similar in consumer electronics, there are always better devices for (almost) the same money.
Quality design is popular among customers
That cooking is chic and kitchens have become a status symbol, helps the industry. “High quality design is more in demand than ever,” says GfK expert. There would also be innovations and improved features that drive the market: for example cookers and ovens that clean themselves, washing machines with automatic dosing or refrigeration equipment that you no longer have to defrost. Further impetus is also the policy that demands more energy-efficient appliances. “In terms of sales, the percentage of front-loading washing machines has increased with the highest efficiency class A +++ by 30 to 75 percent,” says Güntsch. Although energy and water consumption had already fallen sharply, often maxed out the technical limits. Nevertheless, there are always developments that spur the market, such as the introduction of heat pumps for dryers few years ago. Even larger units are always in demand.
The industry is working on a fully networked household
And – similarly as has happened in consumer electronics – will now be all devices are networked and connected to the Internet. Not only BSH but also Samsung and many other manufacturers will present their ideas on Smart Home on the Ifa. The companies take to develop a lot of money in the hand – or buy respective companies. Samsung has just taken founded in 2012 start-up smart things with 55 employees. Observers estimate the purchase price to 200 million euros. The company offers a combination of hardware and software, with the electrical appliances in a household over the Internet can be controlled. More than 1000 devices and apps 8000, the open platform already. Google has even invested $ 3.2 billion for nest earlier this year, a manufacturer of networked thermostats.
“The euphoria in the industry with respect to the subject Connectivity / Smart Home is great,” says Güntsch. The potential was there. “But we’re just getting started. At the moment, the sales of smart home appliances can be controlled over the Internet, yet manageable. ”
