U by Moen Smart Shower delivers handy high-tech cleaning


Giving the smart home a shower

The U by Moen Smart Shower not only allows you to precisely control the temperature of the water while you shower, but you can also control the shower from afar with an app. The four-outlet version pictured here costs $2,200. The two-outlet version (so for a showerhead and a single other nozzle) costs $1,160.

The control panel

As it turns out, app controls for a shower come in handy. Moen’s app includes customizable presets letting you program different temperatures for different family members.

The digital thermostatic valve

Other than the control panel, the U by Moen Shower includes a digital thermostatic valve. This is why the U by Moen’s price is so high. This valve calibrates the water temperature 50 times a second.

Remodel

U by Moen isn’t a smart device you can just snap in place. It’s best if you’re already remodeling. Fortunately, that’s just what we were doing at the CNET Smart Home.
