Best Smart Bathroom Appliances 2022
(Pocket Ribbon) – The bathroom may not be first on the list when it comes to installing technology, but there’s no reason it couldn’t be a huge part of your smart home.
Whether you’re enjoying smarter lighting, listening to your morning playlist through a waterproof speaker, or checking your progress on a smart scale, there’s now a whole host of gadgets that can help your bathroom into the future.
Below we’ll detail some of our top suggestions for filling your space, as well as some very ambitious smart toilets.
Best smart bathroom appliances you can buy
Ultimate Ears UE Boom 3
The Ultimate Ears UE Boom 3 is a small Bluetooth speaker that is not only IP67 water and dust resistant, but also floats. That means it’s suitable for the bath itself, not just the bathroom.
The UE Boom 3 is the smaller version of the Megaboom 3, also worth considering if you want some extra bass in your bathroom, and both have a Bluetooth range of 45 meters.
With a ‘Magic Button’ on the top, you can play, pause and skip songs directly on the speaker without needing your phone, and a long press also provides access to Apple Music and Deezer playlists when connected to an iOS device. or Android device.
Kohler Moxie Shower Head
The Kohler Moxie Showerhead makes singing in the shower even more appealing thanks to the built-in Bluetooth speaker.
Those who want to use one in their setup can choose to replace their regular speakerless shower head with a wall arm or not, making it easy to install in a number of different types of bathrooms.
The speaker also works with any Bluetooth-connected device up to 10 meters away, even popping out of the shower head if you want to take the 1.5 watt glory with you.
There’s also a built-in rechargeable battery, which gives you about seven hours of playback, and the design is also available in four different colors.
Fitbit Aria Air
Fitbit’s Aria Air is very different from the previous two smart scales we’ve seen from the company, cutting the price significantly while retaining some key features.
As always, the experience is best suited for those already in the Fitbit ecosystem, especially Fitbit Premium subscribers. But really, anyone who just wants a scale that can measure their weight and BMI and track trends over time will love the Aria Air.
Within the Fitbit app, users can also set up weight target plans and also connect the scale to partner apps.
Philips Hue Adore bathroom mirror
Philips Hue’s Adore range is ideal for those looking to add a bit of smart lighting to their bathroom setup, and the mirror may be the pick of the bunch.
It’s IP44 rated, so it’s safe from a splash, with Hue’s White Ambience light around the edge of the circular design.
This light ring can of course be controlled via the Hue app, although the device also comes with the remote control Hue Dimmer Switch, Hue’s Motion Sensor. Voice control is also available via Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.
Philips Hue Adore wall lamp
If you already love your bathroom mirror and just need some smart lighting to brighten up your space, the wall lamp from the Adore range from Hue is a perfect choice.
Of course, as with other Hue devices, you can set schedules, routines and timers where the temperature can be dimmed and contrasted between 50,000 shades of cool, neutral and warm white.
You’ll need a Philips Hue Bridge to connect it, but once you’ve done that, the device can also be controlled via Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomKit – as well as the app, of course.
Withings Body Cardio
The Withings Body Cardio is as metric as they come, giving you detailed body composition analysis and lots of great app support.
In addition to standard weight tracking, users get body fat, muscle mass, water, and bone mass measurements, as well as Body Mass Index (BMI), standing heart rate readings, and information about air quality and the day’s weather.
The Health Mate app allows you to track your progress and set weight goals, breaking them down into achievable goals. Those who want to sync with the Fitbit app, Google Fit or Apple Health are also free to do so.
Kohler Verdera Voice Illuminated Mirror
Kohler’s Verdera Voice Lighting Mirror may look like a regular bathroom mirror to the naked eye, though it’s actually integrated with Alexa and Google Assistant.
There’s built-in lighting, including the motion-activated nightlight, and each of the size options also comes with speakers.
The voice control feature allows you to control all other Kohler Konnect devices with a simple command and provide access to typical features of your voice assistant, such as music playback and weather updates.

Toto Neorest NX2 toilet
First announced at CES 2019, the Toto Neorest NX2 intelligent toilet features automatic opening and closing, as well as an automatic flush. It also comes with a heated seat, Toto Washlet cleaning system, and energy and water saving features.
It may not have Alexa built in like Kohler’s smart toilet, but the Toto Neorest NX2 has a catalytic deodorant in the bowl and a cleaning technology that uses electrolyzed water with a slightly acidic pH.
Combined with UV light, this coats the bowl to help remove waste, limescale and mold.
Kohler Numi 2.0 toilet
• View on Kohler
The Kohler Numi 2.0 toilet, like other smart toilets, is still just a toilet. However, don’t make the mistake of thinking that this is the only goal.
Kohler’s second-generation smart toilet does everything for you except, you know, the physical part.
Numi 2.0 has Amazon Alexa built in and provides access to thousands of Alexa skills, as well as auto-raise and close, a heated seat, lighting, and a speaker system.
