It might not be long before bathroom projects involve your local IT expert along with a plumber, tiler and electrician. Imagine being able to connect to the heating settings and lighting dimmer switches from the comfort of your bath.
Hi-tech devices are already available in many commercial washrooms. Soap dispensers and toilet roll holders can alert the facilities team when supplies are running low. Full property management systems developers can design systems that order replacements automatically.
Ladies that need to use public facilities from time to time, might like to know that sensors monitor when toilets are in use and how many ladies are queueing inside the washroom door.
Home automation systems are becoming more commonplace. They let you control your lighting and heating from your mobile via an app. It’s not too much to imagine some nice bathroom hi-tec additions that can make the room cosy warm and ready for your shower on a chilly winter morning.
Tech can also be used to help with your health. Smart scales can monitor your weight daily as well as perhaps your pulse, heart rate, body fat and BMI for your peace of mind. It could send alerts of potential health problems and offer tips and advice.
Smart toothbrushes are another bathroom option for connected comfort and calm. Daily charts and images of your brushing live action footage on your phone, could allow you to identify problem areas to avoid cavities and dental costs.
Bathroom installation can be complicated, and tech options give you even more to plan, but the benefits might be worth it in the long run.
