When most people think of smart home accessories, they think of the living room, kitchen and bedroom. People rarely think about the bathroom, even though it is one of the most used rooms in the house.
Smart home technology goes far beyond simple tasks like turning on a light or replacing a thermostat. With the right mix of technologies, you can transform your bathroom into a completely new space with more utility and functionality than ever before. Here’s how to create the perfect smart bathroom.
Install a smart toilet
Let’s face it: the toilet is the main attraction of any bathroom. This is the main reason for the existence of the room. Why not make the toilet the best you can?
Installing a smart toilet like the Kohler 5401 can make a big difference in your overall smart bathroom experience. Kohler 5401 has a built-in bidet with adjustable spray pattern, water pressure, water temperature, etc.
It also features automatic cleaning, an LCD touch screen remote control and an elongated design that looks great in a modern smart bathroom.
Add a smart shower head
A smart shower head can change your shower experience. For example, some of them are equipped with LEDs that change color when the water temperature is above a certain one. Others can play music such as Moxie Showerhead and Wireless Speaker.
The Moxie is made by Kohler and works like a regular shower head except it has a detachable speaker. The speaker promises less than one percent sound distortion over seven hours of use. There are also 60 angled nozzles for full coverage.
You can listen to your favorite music or the morning news while you shower – just be careful not to shower too long.
Use a smart scale
You can also measure your own weight in the bathroom. After all, the best measurements are taken when you are naked, which is not possible in the kitchen.
The smart bathroom scale can automatically measure your weight, body mass index and many other data and store it in the app on your phone. The Withings Body Cardio Scale is one of the best options that not only looks great but also syncs with Apple Watch, FitBit, and Google Health.
It measures water percentage, muscle and bone mass and more, and can store information for up to eight users. The scale can also automatically recognize who is standing on it. If you’re trying to get in shape, this scale is essential.
Buy a brush Smart Teeth
There are many different options for electric toothbrushes, but a smart toothbrush is a rotatable electric toothbrush. They stand out for providing the user with an analysis of their brushing habits to help improve overall oral health.
Oral-B announced a new smart toothbrush at CES 2020 called the Oral-B iO, which uses a pressure sensor to determine if you are brushing too softly, too harshly, or correctly. It also has a built-in display for feedback.
The toothbrush takes up to two minutes to see if you are brushing your teeth enough, and it also has seven different cleaning modes, including daily brushing, sensitive, and whitening.
Perhaps best of all, the Oral-B iO comes with a travel case so you can take it with you wherever you go.
Add Smart Mirror
You use the bathroom to shave, put on makeup, and get dressed – and you need a mirror for all of these tasks. A smart mirror can transform your morning routine and even help you reach your fitness goals.
NakedLabs’ smart mirror can even display a 3D model of your body, which you can rotate and magnify so you can look at parts of yourself that you wouldn’t normally see. Thanks to its scanning ability, you can compare side-by-side models with up to ten of your previous scans.
Other types of smart mirrors have built-in Alexa, weather display, and more. A smart mirror is a versatile morning routine to help you prepare for the day ahead.
Smart mirrors are available in full length and up to makeup mirrors. There are many options, but you can also find instructions on how to build your own smart mirror using a Raspberry Pi and a little elbow grease. Decide what functions you need in your smart mirror and choose the one that suits you best.
