Smart technology is evolving fast and has already found its way into households. You are probably already familiar with the trendy concept of smart homes that are made possible by smart gadgets and the Internet of Things (IoT). Kitchens, living rooms, and even garages can now be equipped with intelligent appliances from refrigerators and alarm systems to smart lights. The bathrooms have also had their fair share of smart tech.
The bathroom might be the last place you’d expect to find sophisticated digital controls. However, digital controls are quite popular in modern bathrooms, for instance, for adjusting the thermostat, digital shower, and even the water temperature. An excellent example of this is Thermosol, a shower technology that has taken the digital experience to a whole new level.
The beauty of digital controls is their ease-of-use, precision, versatility, and their broad range of functions. Plus, having a digital control module in the bathroom can make the place look and feel crisp and modern. Of course, all the touchscreens and buttons designed for bathroom use are waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about damaging them with wet fingers.
Many bathrooms nowadays are being fitted with automatic sensors that, for instance, turn the lights on and off when someone enters or leaves the room. What you might not realize is that some of these sensors can be used to offer a personalized bathroom experience.
You can have an integrated system in your bathroom that recognizes the user and sets everything to their preference. It could be the lighting, water temperature, or the thermostat setting. What’s more, you can have your bathroom fitted with a smart mirror that can give you live updates of the weather, news, and even calls texts and email notifications as you brush your teeth or dry your hair.
High-Tech Toilets and Faucets
Innovations in smart toilets and faucets designs are mostly aimed at improving water usage efficiency and hygiene. There are several brands of faucets that can automatically turn the water on and off and adjust its temperature. You can also have toilets with automatic flushing, seat warming, and self-cleaning functions. Many of the smart toilets and faucets models allow the user to customize the automated features to give a more personalized experience.
Technology is really pushing the limits and scope of automation. The idea of using intelligent software and interconnected devices to automate mundane tasks has taken hold in many industries and now in homes. Smart tech has proven that you can digitally upgrade your home and bathroom in ways you probably never imagined.
