Smart Home Technology That is Transforming The Bathroom

The world of technology is evolving at an ever-faster pace, even the once humble bathroom is not being left behind. There are now many gadgets and innovations that can help to make using the bathroom safer, more convenient and more cost effective. Here is a look at some of the popular smart home technologies for the bathroom.

Smart shower systems

Smart shower systems allow you to customise your shower experience from a convenient digital control pad, voice command, or through a mobile device such as your smartphone. This allows you to set a safe and consistent water temperature, control the water pressure, and even time how long you spend in the shower. 

This can help to save on water and energy bills, and also bring peace of mind that the temperature is set at a safe level if the shower is being used by young children or frail older people. 

Smart toilets

Smart toilets are popular for features such as built-in bidets for extra hygiene and cleanliness, heated seats, touch-free lids and flushes, self-cleaning functions, speakers to play your favourite tunes, and night lights to make night time trips to the bathroom safer. 

Interactive LED mirrors

Bathroom mirrors are now about much more than simply a convenient place to shave or apply makeup. Consumers are choosing backlit LED mirrors for optimum flattering light, and even mirrors with interactive displays. These can respond to voice commands and display useful information such as the time and date, weather reports, and news headlines.

Smart privacy glass

Curtains or blinds in the bathroom can be a nuisance because they are prone to picking up mould and damp. However, some form of privacy screening is usually necessary unless the window is very high or the house is in a particularly isolated location. 

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, there is now an answer to this dilemma through the use of switchable privacy glass. This glass is designed to switch from clear to opaque in a fraction of a second, and can be programmed to a variety of settings. It still lets UV light filter through while blocking the view from outside. 

There are even more advanced options available that allow you to project moving images onto the glass, providing instant in-bathroom entertainment. 

Smart bathroom scales

Smart scales are a must have for anyone who is taking their health seriously. It is well known that maintaining an ideal body weight is one of the cornerstones of good health and key to preventing some of the most serious diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. 

Smart scales can measure weight, water balance, body fat, and other data that is useful for monitoring health conditions, or for expectant mothers who want to track the progress of their pregnancy. 

The data can be linked to health tracking apps on smartphones or shared with other devices if required, and can even be used to provide customised suggestions to keep your diet and health on track.
