Now we’re entering the era of the high-tech home, it might be time to upgrade your toilet
‘The Internet of Things’ or ‘IoT’ for short has become the buzzy phrase of technophiles the world over. The ability to connect everything in the home to the internet is supposedly set to revolutionise our daily lives, allowing us to live more efficiently; saving time, energy and money, while the space in which we live adapts to our personal habits.
Following the lead of high-end luxury spas and wellbeing retreats, bathrooms are also undergoing a revolution. Connected hot water units allow you to start the shower and set the temperature from bed before you get up in the morning; super-thin TV screens are mounted behind bathroom mirrors and intelligent bathroom scales can give you a complete breakdown of your body’s make-up. And now, even the humble toilet is getting a modern makeover with a new breed of WCs which are streamlined, high tech and ultra-hygienic.
For example, the Geberit AquaClean toilet cleans you with a warm, pleasnat and gentle water jet, providing an alternative to the conventional bidet, and all at the touch of a button.
And it can also be combined with the brand’s innovative Monolith Plus sanitary module, an elegant base unit made of glass and brushed aluminium that includes a sensor-controlled switch-on function, subtle LED lighting and a quiet fan for integrated odour extraction. Who knew?! Geberit
