The smartphone. A smart TV. The smart thermostat. A smart toilet. Wait…what was that? What in the world is a smart toilet? Well, just like any other smart device it’s connected through Wi-Fi and can interact with the user. Why would you want this sort of toilet technology in your Lubbock, TX home? Just read on.

Smart toilets are just like all the other hi-tech wrinkles that have slowly become a part of our everyday lives. Can we live without them? Sure. Are they kind of fun to have and put a little luxury into our lives? Without a doubt. Here are some of the most popular features:

  • Seat warmers—This is a feature you will find on most smart toilets. The seat can be warmed to a desired temperature to fit your preferences.
  • Automatic lid—Could this possibly end one aspect in the battle of the sexes? Some smart toilets enable the lid and/or seat to open or close automatically based on your settings.
  • Nightlight—No more painful stubbed toes when you stumble into the bathroom in the middle of the night. Smart toilet technology can include ambient night lighting.
  • Spray adjustment—If you buy a toilet with a bidet, and many people do, the technology allows you to adjust the pressure and water temperature of the spray to clean your bottom.

Just in case those aren’t enough, your toilet can also include a radio to play music or your favorite talk show.

The Advantages Don’t Stop There

Bells and whistles aside, there are more substantive reasons to consider updating your toilet technology. Because of hands-free operation, these toilets are more hygienic. This is especially true if it also includes a bidet. They are also easier to use for those who are elderly or physically limited.
