The U by Moen smart shower can provide that. The Wi-Fi and cloud-based digital shower is ideal for hotel guests seeking an extra comfort when away from home, workout facilities or an added office perk.

“At Moen, we’re committed to developing smart innovations that enhance people’s everyday experiences with water,” says Michael Poloha, group manager, IoT, Moen, in a news release.

U by Moen users have three choices in how to use the system:

1. Touch panel: Hit the power button to activate the shower and push the button for the water experience you want. Once finished, hit power again to shut off.
