Smart home technologies have enhanced our day-to-day lives in many ways, from improving home security to helping us cook dinner.
In the bathroom, a number of innovations now let you customize your daily routine for greater comfort, convenience and efficiency. Pull up your playlist in the shower, or send emails while brushing your teeth — without dropping your phone in the water. You can also find tools that conserve water and make cleaning the bathroom easier than ever.
In this article, we’ll go over some of the most helpful gadgets for updating your own bathroom.
Smart Showers & Tubs
Get refreshed with digital enhancements for your shower or tub experience.
Waterproof LCD panels let you effortlessly adjust water flow, temperature and steam settings for maximum comfort. Install a showerhead that responds to voice commands, so you can check the weather and play your favorite song on built-in smart speakers. Many shower technologies can also be operated by mobile app and connect to popular devices like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
Time for a soak in the tub? Make sure the water’s just right with a touch control keypad, adjustable headrest, massaging jets and toe-operated drain. Create a soothing ambience with LED lighting, or binge-watch your favorite show on a waterproof TV while relaxing after a long day.
Smart Mirrors & Faucets
Check your calendar, answer emails and scroll through the latest headlines — all from your bathroom mirror!
Touch screen displays let you run your favorite apps, watch YouTube videos and control other devices in your home. Many smart mirrors come with Bluetooth speakers and connect with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. You can also find models with LED mood lighting.
Wash up with a touchless digital faucet that helps you conserve water and cut utility bills. Programmable settings let you control water usage for tasks like brushing your teeth or washing your face. An infrared sensor automatically turns off the tap when your hands aren’t under the faucet.
Enjoy greater cleanliness and comfort with smart toilets.
Look for hands-free and even paper-free functionality, along with customizable settings that respond to voice commands. Motion sensors raise and lower the lid automatically, and heated seats keep you comfortable. Get a personalized clean with temperature-controlled water and air drying. Quiet, automatic flushing means no more having to touch the handle. Self-cleaning bowls and antimicrobial seats help you cut down on mold, mildew and germs and keep your bathroom clean and fresh with less effort.
Thanks to the miracle of technology, there are more ways than ever to create the contemporary, personalized bathroom you’re looking for.
