Smart Bathroom

3 Ways to Create a Smart Bathroom

Want to add some spice to your bathroom?

The age of the ‘smart home’ is here and along with that comes the smart bathroom. Although the bathroom is not exactly the first place you would take your guests, there are some cool things you can do to add technology to the loo.

Below we explore three innovative ways to create a smart bathroom.

Shower With Tunes

 

Black Shower Head

Love to sing in the shower? Kohler has just the device for you. Whilst they are known for high-end kitchen and bath hardware, this year the company released a showerhead to make your smart home feel a little bit more luxurious.

The Kohler Moxie showerhead features a built-in speaker that syncs to your device from up to 32 feet away. Listening to your favourite tunes whilst you pump yourself up for a long day at work or even taking a phone call just became a lot easier.

To help reduce water the showerhead has a silicone spray face, 60 nozzles and comes in two models—an 8 litres per minute or a 10 litres per minute. The speaker itself can also be removed for charging outside of the shower. And here at Metropolitan Plumbing, we can certainly install your new showerhead and offer shower plumbing services as needed.

Touchless Toilets

Toilet

Hate touching your toilet and nasty germs? Touchless toilets feature a sensor so you can flush your toilet with the wave of a hand. They are very similar to normal toilets with the exception of an advanced flushing system.

Touchless flush activation uses a motion sensor that is able to detect a waving hand from about 5 centimetres above the toilet tank. Bathroom surfaces have a nasty tendency to collect germs and bacteria, so any opportunity to reduce direct contact should be welcomed. One other advantage of having self-flushing toilets is that they will bail you out if you have the tendency to forget to flush.

They also prevent multiple flushes, which in turn, saves you water. With one powerful flush your waste is removed so there is no need to flush multiple times with your new touchless toilet.

Smart Mirrors

Ever wanted your mirror to talk back to you? There are a number of products that will satisfy your needs. There are mirrors with built-in touch controls and Amazon Alexa to listen to your voice commands.

For many people, the thought of inviting Alexa into the bathroom is downright creepy but the hands-free, voice control technology is arguably most useful in a bathroom context.

There is convenience in being able to ask for your favourite song from the shower or add to your shopping list while shaving. The mirrors often feature two vertical LEDs, a nightlight function and a motion sensor to activate the nightlight when someone steps in front of the mirror.

They also feature well-illustrated guides with step-by-step installation instructions which cover everything you need to know about mounting, wiring and centering your mirror. Of course, you will need a licensed electrician to wire and/or install the mirror.

Had my toilet replaced on Friday. They arrived on time and went above and beyond to finish the job professionally given it was a lot harder than first thought. Our plumber was fantastic. Would definitely use again.
