How to use a smart shower

With showers nowadays being more hi-tech than ever, the smart shower is an increasingly popular option for many homeowners and offers an efficient solution for your bathroom.

Whether you're interested in introducing smart technology into your bathroom - or simply want to find out more about how smart showers work - then read to the end of the blog for an overview.

Smart showers will make your bathroom experience more efficient.

What is a smart shower?

Smart showers are a further upgrade on the standard digital shower and include lots of great features designed to make your showering experience more enjoyable and efficient. Incorporating technology which often makes use of Bluetooth connectivity and allows you to set water temperature and customise settings, smart showers are being seen more and more in our bathrooms and look set to stay.

Key features and benefits of smart showers include:

  • Temperature-control: Using digital technology or an app, smart showers let you precisely control the water temperature of your shower, so you can enjoy the perfect warmth every time you use it, without needing to constantly adjust the settings.
  • Waterflow control: Just like water temperature, the flow rate can also be set, meaning that you can enjoy your preferred waterflow and also potentially reduce water consumption, making smart showers a more environmentally-friendly option.
  • Voice-control: Some smart showers come with integrated voice assistants so you can use voice-control to activate various functions hands-free.

    Smart showers offer thermostatic control so you can set the water temperature.

  • Customised settings: Thanks to their ability to let you set your preferred water temperature and flow rate – along with the duration of your shower – smart showers are fully customisable and allow you to use them without needing to adjust anything.
  • Water usage monitoring: Smart showers may provide insights into water usage, so you can monitor and reduce your water consumption over time, making them a more eco-friendly choice.
  • Compatibility with existing home systems: Smart showers can often sync up with other smart devices and systems within your home, so you can create a curated experience – for example, prompting your shower to start at a specific time.
  • Remote control: Some smart showers let you control the shower remotely via a mobile app, so you can start it and adjust any settings before getting in.

Step-by-step guide to using your smart shower

Installation and set-up

Always ensure your smart shower is correctly installed according to the manufacturer's instructions before connecting it to your ome Wi-Fi network as required and downloading the corresponding app onto your smartphone.

Connecting the app

Open the app and follow the instructions to pair it with your smart shower system.

NB You may need to create an account or log into an existing one.

Explore the features of your smart shower

Once you're ready to actually use your shower, simply open the app on your smartphone or use voice commands (if applicable) to operate your shower. You can select your preferred settings, including temperature and water-flow rate and start the shower either remotely or manually, as preferred, making any adjustments as necessary while you're in it.

Some smart showers allow you to activate the shower remotely.

Top tips when using your smart shower

  • Safety: Always get a professional to install your smart shower and check that it’s working as it should. If it’s voice-activated then it’s also important to ensure that any children in the household can’t accidentally turn it on. Setting the water temperature will also help to prevent scalding, so it’s best to do this at the outset, to avoid accidents.
  • Maintenance: Keeping on top of software updates will ensure optimal functioning of your smart shower, while following the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning and maintenance will help to prolong its life.
  • Energy and water savings: Making the most of features which allow you to track water usage means you can become more conscious of the amount of water your household uses and can ultimately help you to reduce this. For example, setting timers for how long a shower is to last will save energy, as will heating water only when it’s needed.
