The smart home portfolio allows companies in various sectors to quickly and efficiently expand their core business with smart home solutions of their own.

Remote control of devices with the Bosch IoT Remote Manager

Deutsche Telekom chose to rely on device management software from Bosch Software Innovations for setting up its QIVICON platform.

Our Remote Manager supports all popular device management protocols out of the box. This solution makes it possible to remotely manage, configure, monitor, update, diagnose, and use gateways, sensors, and devices. To this end, the following software functions of the device management suite by Bosch Software Innovations play a central role:

  • Connection of QIVICON Home Base and Speedport Smart to the backend, and transmission of event data
  • Remote configuration and monitoring of QIVICON Home Base and Speedport Smart
  • Remote control of devices and firmware updates
  • Application lifecycle management: initial deployment and updating of QIVICON applications

Just as the QIVICON Home Base relies on the Bosch IoT Gateway Software from Bosch Software Innovations, so too does the Speedport Smart. The Bosch IoT Gateway Software is a tried-and-true solution worldwide for a variety of applications – such as smart homes, Industry 4.0, and connected cars. Based on open standards, this gateway software supports numerous communication protocols out of the box, thus facilitating the efficient connection of devices, irrespective of manufacturer, to QIVICON Home Base and Speedport Smart.
