Caroma launches IoT solution for commercial bathrooms
Bathroom product designer and distributor Caroma has launched Smart Command, an IoT solution for water waste management.
An industry-first for this technology, Caroma Smart Command, empowers building owners to monitor and control water use in real time and make smarter decisions to conserve water and reduce maintenance costs, while improving hygiene, wellbeing and increasing facility uptime.
Data collected continuously through Caroma Smart Command can be accessed locally from a mobile app or integrated to existing building management systems or on cloud platforms to enable remote monitoring, faster fault diagnosis and accurate cleaning deployment.
“By 2050, our water demands will have increased by 55%. Yet as inhabitants of one of the driest continents on earth, we need to keep innovating to help conserve our most critical resource,” said Caroma innovation director and inventor of Smart Command Dr Stephen Cummings.
“Five years in development, I am excited that our latest breakthrough innovation, Smart Command, is ready to address this new beginning in sustainable building management and unlock a new sustainability and innovation, cost reduction and customer experience opportunity for developers, facility managers, architects and plumbers.”
GWA Group chief executive Tim Salt said Smart Command provides an exciting opportunity to create premium commercial bathroom experiences.
“With an intuitive touchless design that promotes a hygienic environment and optimised cleaning, replenishment of consumables and improved uptime.
“Smart Command also opens up highly coveted sustainability accreditation opportunities, from NABERS water efficiencies and WELL Standards, to Greenstar benefits, with micro metering that allows for accurate benchmarking.”
