BMW has unveiled a variety of new apps and features at the consumer electronics show in Berlin.

The most notable introduction was a Smart Home app which allows drivers to remotely access their house's connected systems from their car.  This will allow users to control everything from the washing machine to the interior lights from their iDrive controller.  The system can also be programmed so your Smart Home will lock itself and adjust the temperature - to maximize efficiency - when you drive away. 

Besides the Smart Home app, BMW introduced support for the GoPro app and the n-tv app.  The automaker also introduced a BMW i Remote app for the new Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 which also debuted at the show.
