Steffen Hoffmann, president of Bosch UK said:

“Smart technology has been around for some time now, but with the launch of our Smart Home portfolio, this technology is now accessible for all, rather than just the early adopters. The solutions we have created are designed to make a tangible difference to people’s everyday lives.

“Our recent Smart Home Study confirmed to us that worrying about home safety and security is a real issue, so these products will be a relief to many by helping to address their concerns quickly and easily.

“Whether customers choose to opt for a full Smart Home suite, or simply choose to combine a few products, they’ll be able to instantly enjoy security benefits and greater peace of mind”.


The Smart Home portfolio launch comes as Bosch announces its annual financial results, registering £3.2 billion (€3.9 billion) sales in the UK. Adjusted for exchange-rates, this represented an increase of 13%, with Mobility Solutions, Consumer Goods and the Energy and Building Technology divisions driving the success in the UK.
