Bosch Smart Home

Just to double check. You don’t need a cloud, everything runs on the local network, right?

That’s correct! While setting the Bosch SHC up, you’ll need a cloud connection. But after everything is setup, you can completely access all data locally.

Hi Thomas!

Hope you are doing well!
I realized that the new version of the room thermostat is not yet supported by this integration. It does show entities for its temperature and humidity sensor, but it is not yet supporting its actual core function (to regulate floor heating in the room). Therefore I was wondering if there is anything that I could help you with to also fully support this device?

I am talking about the “ RTH2_230”.
Let me know if there is something!

Best wishes,

Hi @kai-seipp
I assumed RTH2_230 should already be working. Maybe you can look into this ticket, please reopen it and name the services which in your case are not working:

Best, Thomas

I have configured the alarm system in Bosch and it is also displayed correctly in HA. There are 4 states in HA: Home, Away, Customised and Deactivated. If I transfer the alarm system to Homekit, the alarm system is also displayed there. However, there are only the statuses Home, Away and Off. The Custom status is therefore missing. How do I get this alarm status to Apple Homekit?
Thank you very much :slight_smile:

I don’t know the Bosch Alarm System, but this workaround could be the solution:

  • Don’t connect your Alarm System with Apple Home (disconnect)
  • Instead use the Apple HomeKit Bridge:
    • Define a Input Select in HA with your 4 mentioned states
    • Map the alarm system states to your Input Select in both directions (using templates, automations)
    • Make the Input Select available in your Apple Home, using the HomeKit Bridge Integration
    • You can rename the Input Select states in Apple Home.
  • Alternative: Define a binary switch in HA, which represents the missing state “Customised” und triggers the state “Customised” in your alarm system. Then show this switch in Apple Home (if you change your switch in Apple Home, the switch in HA changes, which lets you adapt the state of your alarm system with an automation)

You need to add a Template Alarm control panel to your configuration.yaml. I am also using the Bosch Alarm System in HomeKit with the following configuration.yaml. Also you need to include the new entity alarm_control_panel.bosch_alarm_system to your HomeKit Integration. I use the Bosch Alarm System state custom as state night in HomeKit.

  - platform: template
        name: "Alarmsystem"
        value_template: >-
          {% if is_state('alarm_control_panel.intrusion_detection_system', 'armed_custom_bypass') %}
          {% else %}
            {{ states('alarm_control_panel.intrusion_detection_system') }}
          {% endif %}
        code_arm_required: false
          service: alarm_control_panel.alarm_arm_away
            entity_id: alarm_control_panel.intrusion_detection_system
          service: alarm_control_panel.alarm_arm_home
            entity_id: alarm_control_panel.intrusion_detection_system
          service: alarm_control_panel.alarm_arm_custom_bypass
            entity_id: alarm_control_panel.intrusion_detection_system
          service: alarm_control_panel.alarm_disarm
            entity_id: alarm_control_panel.intrusion_detection_system

I try to use the Bosch relay to heat up my water boiler when there is too much solar energy. Unfortunately the relay seems not to be supported.

@tschamm Are there any plans to add the support for the relay? Thank you for your reply.
