Smart technology is everywhere, from our phones to our cars.  Why not take that smart technology into the one place everyone spends some time… your bathroom?  From smart scales to tech-savvy lighting, there are plenty of ways to make your bathroom as Smart as the rest of your home.

What is a smart bathroom?  Smart bathrooms combine functionality with technology, providing consumers with an interactive, user-friendly experience.  Smart technology includes lighting, wireless technology, digital controls, as well as touchscreen user interface and voice controls.  Smart bathrooms pair these with toilets, faucets, showerheads, and mirrors.

Whether you are just getting started, or you have specific smart products in mind we have a few ideas to spread your smart-tech muscles and see where the future leads in smart bathrooms.

Conservation with Smart Tech Fixtures

Faucets

The technology already available in many commercial applications can now be in your own bathroom.  Faucets that reduce water waste by sensor technology that turns the water on and off. 

Digitally controlled faucets offer the user the option of setting the exact temperature of the water.  Some units offer personalized user settings as well. 

Faucets that offer both hands-free and digital technology save more time and water than either individually, with an added plus of being a cleaner way to use a sink, no more soap covered handles.

Whether you use an automatic dispenser next to the sink to regulate how much soap you use to wash your hands or to hold shampoo and conditioner, there are several choices available to help limit the amount of product that is used. 

Some models can be manually set to dispense just the right amount for the application, such as a larger amount for long hair, or a small amount of hand soap to save little ones from soap waste. Some units even come with the ability to offer more than one type of product, such as soap and hand sanitizer.
