Bluetooth in the bathroom - the latest 'Smart Mirrors' from HiB
We now live in an age where every room in the home contributes towards our lifestyles and wellbeing. The bathroom is no exception - it's no longer a utilitarian and mono-functional area but rather one of private time, a place in which you can luxuriate and relax in a very personal way.
Music and entertainment, 24-hour news and a global information flow are all important threads in a busy modern life. HiB, always at the cutting edge of technology in the bathroom, has introduced the Pulse and Vibe Mirrors, which incorporate Bluetooth technology to bring your personal music or radio station into your bathroom.
The Mirrors will operate with any Bluetooth enabled device like a smart phone, tablet or laptop, so that the user can access music collections or any internet radio station in the world via an appropriate app. With discreet speakers in the side of the mirror, the controls are all via the mobile device, leaving the original mirror design sleek and clean.
Both Vibe and Pulse - one a portrait format and the other landscape - are LED backlit with a heated pad and sensor switch included as standard and have integrated low energy LED illumination.
HiB says that technical functions have become very important to the consumer.
"Customers seek out functionality and expect them to be part of the product. With our latest Pulse and Vibe Bluetooth innovations we ensure that our customers can be part of 21st century progress," says HiB Marketing Director Steve Kaye.
Vibe - Height 70cm, width 50cm, depth 7cm
Pulse - Height 60cm, width 80cm, depth 7cm
Both mirrors IP44 rated for safe use in the bathroom.
