Smart Technology In The Bathroom: Adding Convenience And Luxury

Smart Technology In The Bathroom: Adding Convenience And Luxury

Home technology is ever-evolving, and at pace, so now the smart bathroom is something that many homeowners have embraced with open arms too.

In less than a century, we went from the first wireless sets to AI smart speakers or home assistants such as Amazon Alexa.

While kitchen appliances, security systems, and other mod cons are regularly cited as examples of the recent shift towards more tech-driven homes, smart technology in the bathroom is often overlooked.

Here at Ability Bathe, we’ve seen all the developments in bathroom design over the past few years, with the smart bathroom becoming a desirable option for lots of people.

From smart bathroom mirrors to intelligent lighting solutions and responsive heating, the bathroom is undergoing a tech revolution.

Let’s dive into how these smart bathrooms can transform your daily routines into experiences of convenience and indulgence.

Smart bathrooms – the basics

You can adapt a smart bathroom to the needs of its users – offering a blend of comfort, convenience, and efficiency. 

Smart bathrooms can control various elements such as:

  • Temperature
  • Lighting
  • Water flow 

This ensures optimal comfort and energy efficiency. Let’s look at some of the smart bathroom accessories we’re seeing.

Smart bathroom mirrors

Imagine a bathroom mirror that does more than just reflect your image.

A smart bathroom mirror offers features like LED lighting, touchless controls, and even integrated displays that provide weather updates, news, or can connect to your calendar.

These mirrors use high-tech capabilities to enhance your morning routines, making them perfect for those busy mornings when multitasking is a must.

Smart bathroom scales

Smart bathroom scales help track more than just weight. They can measure body composition details such as: 

  • Muscle mass
  • Fat mass
  • Water percentage
  • Bone density

These scales connect with mobile apps to track your progress over time, offering tailored health insights and fitness goals. 

Smart bathroom lights

Lighting is pivotal to any bathroom. Smart bathroom lights provide the ability to adjust settings for different needs and times of day, whether you need bright light for morning preparations or a softer glow for a relaxing evening bath. 

There are smart lights you can control via voice, apps, or even gestures — adding not only utility but also an element of modern sophistication to your bathroom. Here’s how to change your bathroom lights.

Smart showers and taps

Smart showers and taps bring revolutionary changes to the way we interact with water in our bathrooms. Temperature and flow can be precisely controlled with smart devices, ensuring that every shower or bath is exactly how you like it without the need to manually adjust dials. 

Additionally, water conservation technology is a significant benefit, as these smart devices reduce overall water usage — a win for both the environment and your utility bills.

We’ve covered some of the things you can do with a smart shower in our guide to the different types of showers. We also outline the benefits of the increasingly popular walk-in shower.

Smart thermostats

Smart thermostats learn your preferences, ensuring the bathroom is always at your ideal temperature, and enhancing comfort while optimising energy efficiency. This intelligent system adjusts based on your daily habits and schedules.

These thermostats can be controlled remotely, allowing adjustments from anywhere via a smartphone. This not only ensures your bathroom is ready when you are, but also reduces energy consumption, lowering utility bills and supporting a sustainable lifestyle.

When paired with other smart devices in your bathroom, thermostats ensure every element works in sync for your convenience and comfort.

Final thoughts: Smart technology in the bathroom

From smart mirrors that assist in your daily preparations to advanced scales that monitor your health, these technologies could significantly enhance your bathroom experience.
