GROHE states it is taking a broad approach to the increasing digitisation of design

GROHE says it is taking a broad approach to the ongoing and increasing digitisation of society.

According to GROHE, its smart products are not only engineered for convenient handling and fast operation but they also enhance their users’ wellbeing, offer numerous options for personalisation and deliver that extra touch of luxury essential for a modern, relaxed lifestyle.

Digitisation in sanitary technology has been pioneered by GROHE, driving industry progress by introducing as many as 150 new products each year. Ten years ago the launch of GROHE Ondus marked the beginning of this major trend. Today, GROHE offers a wide range of digital taps, showers and shower toilets.

Digitisation is a mega-trend in many aspects of daily life says GROHE, and more and more elements of the home can now communicate with one another. In the bathroom, the advance of digitisation has already reached a wide variety of products, from taps to showers and other water fittings.

What all digital GROHE products have in common is that they can be operated intuitively – their user interfaces are simple to understand and self-explanatory, designed to make life easier for the user, says the company. At the same time, they incorporate modern technologies to create unique water experiences, which users can enjoy time after time.

The GROHE Sensia shower toilets (seen here) also offer the highest levels of user comfort. Their cleansing functions can be set and activated via a remote control unit or, for the Arena model, via an app. Simple, intuitive symbols on the keys or touchscreen provide direct access to all functions. All settings – including the temperature of the water, the pressure of the spray and the position of the shower arm – can be personalised to meet each user’s individual needs and preferences.

Digital technology has arrived in the bathroom and it is here to stay, says GROHE. The next step will be to enable even more efficient networking between the different types of digital products and create truly comprehensive digital solutions for the smart home of tomorrow.
