Home Connect enables remote access to home appliances of Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau, Neff & Thermador. You can use Home Connect to start and stop programs, adjust settings, read status and monitor events. A home-connect enabled appliance (over, dishwasher, coffeemaker, etc) can be controlled via an API. Remote access via Home Connect is provided by the Home Connect API. Direct access to home appliances is not possible.
A high-level overview of Home-Connect architecture.

This plugin has to be developed and the first question is if there’s interest in such a plugin. If there’s interest we can start the development. I have made a proof-of-concept plugin for a CoffeeMaker. It works
The 2 major areas to be developed are:
- A Pimatic user friendly and still secure authentication (oAuth2) implementation.
- The mapping of al the features (selecting programs and options and handling events) of an appliance on to Pimatic.
Let me know if you are interested and if you want to help.
