Your Shower Area
You have a vast number of options when it comes to smart improvements in your shower area.

Your Toilet Area
A toilet that cleans itself is now available and there is now a model available that allows you the option of never touching the toilet.

Gravity and high speed jets and proprietary technology allows the model to use less water and still clean the toilet in an environmentally clean manner. Visit totousa.com to learn more about this product and other bath products that use smart technology.
Your Ventilation Area
Don’t overlook this vital area of your bathroom operation. Your ventilation system removes moisture and humidity that could promote the growth of mold and mildew and can help exhaust unpleasant odors.
Smart technology now sense humidity after a long hot shower and turns on the ventilation to help remove excess moisture from the room—some can even communicate wirelessly with wall switches or with an app that allows you to control the fan from your smartphone.
Your Mirror Area
You can now jazz up your mirror and cabinet area with smart technology that allows you to watch tv as you bathe or shower, integrate your home security system into the screen, defog your mirror so that you can shave faster, charge your electronics on a USB or other port on your cabinet, cooling cabinets that keep your medicine and cosmetics at the right temperature and other things that you might dream up.
Other Accessories for Your Bath Area
Accessories allow you to put your personal stamp on your bathroom area and there are many high tech solutions that allow you to do that with style, functionality, flair and personality that is all your own.
You can now choose small robot vacuums and mops, Bluetooth enabled toothbrushes that communicate with your smartphone to determine how well you are brushing your teeth (take that dentist—I don’t want to hear your comments), smart scales that can track your weight and health goals–and touch free soap dispensers that allow you to wash your hands more efficiently.
By upgrading in a tech savvy way you can enhance the value of your home and increase your living standards from the comfort of your home.
Challenges of smart technology for some include cost as the price for some technology can seem high for those with low disposable income. Another major concern is security as personal information and data that goes across the web can potentially be compromised by illegal or unauthorized access.
Hacking is a real concern with smart technology or any data that crosses over a network (whether it be the web or a private network). Will your information really be secure is a real question that you must ask? Will your smart locks to your doors really be secure or can it possibly be bypassed? The same goes for your smart alarm security system. Be sure to choose your smart technology products in a wise manner and with the above concerns in mind.
In addition, be sure your smart technology is inter-operable with other technology that you may purchase in the future as systems vary on what will work on their smart technology platform.
