Düsseldorf, 28 May 2020 – Digitization has fundamentally changed many areas of public and private life in recent years. As a result, digital solutions are increasingly finding their way into private living spaces, merging physical and digital dimensions. This development does not exclude the bathroom. Consumers are specifically looking for smart technologies with intuitive operation that enrich everyday bathroom routines. "Intelligent technologies are not a solution in themselves, but should be seen as ‘enablers’," emphasizes Thomas Fuhr, COO Fittings LIXIL International and CEO Grohe AG. "Whenever we develop new technologies or product innovations, we ask ourselves: What is the purpose? How will it affect consumers' lives? Will it solve a problem and make life easier? For us, users and their needs are clearly the focus of attention. Because only with this customer-focused mindset we can develop technologies and products that offer real added value."
This is how, for example, the innovative GROHE SmartConnect shower control unit came into being: The wireless remote control connects to the GROHE Rainshower 310 head shower via Bluetooth and allows users to select or combine spray types effortlessly – for maximum comfort and water enjoyment with a modern look.
GROHE Rainshower 310 SmartConnect offers innovative water control: The head shower is connected via Bluetooth to a battery-powered, round remote control which allows you to switch between the gentle GROHE PureRain and invigorating ActiveRain sprays or combine both spray patterns at the push of a button. The wireless remote control can be conveniently positioned in an easily accessible place and is intuitive to use thanks to self-explanatory pictograms. The head shower is available in a round and a square design and has a comfortable diameter of 310mm. It can be easily and quickly mounted on existing shower arms. GROHE Rainshower 310 SmartConnect impresses with flexibility and comfort and is a technical highlight in every modern bathroom.
