Pro tip. If you are looking at the screen, the 2nd button on the right side mutes most of them so you donít have to listen.

Well three and 19 months, single dad. Sometimes you need something to draw their attention so you can get things done lol.

It's either the mute button or the panic button that shuts off all the pumps and calls 911.

I'll add another item that makes me shake my head and wonder, do we really need this and where are we going as a society that makes someone design this......

Do we need an app to tell our shower to turn on and go to 103 degrees? Seriously?.......... Who the F needs that? Who is that vapid and lazy that they need to tell alexa or amazon or whatever other spying device to turn on their shower for them? Turn the handle and wait for it to get warm while you are undressing for f-sakes. I hope they don't sell a single one of these. The thought of this thing drives me crazy....just makes me want to curse....loudly.

Rant over....for now

Our new cooking range has a feature where I could pre-heat the oven via an app on my phone. No thanks.

If we didn't have the TV's to watch, we might have to actually talk to someone. a real person.

Yeah I’m down for that shower head that preheats for me.


Us millennials aren’t retired like you old folks, we don’t have the time to waste waiting for a shower to heat up!!!

Outside of the ridiculousness of this, the concept it pretty cool. Precise remote control of a water system fixture is something you see in manufacturing machinery. Now you get to take home in a user friendly version. I would never buy it, but its still cool.
