Make sure you offer the latest in shower technology with Aqualisa’s new Smart Quartz Collection.
The recent launch of the new Aqualisa Smart Quartz Collection of showers shows that Aqualisa is firmly in the driving seat for innovative shower technology in the UK. The bathroom and wet room are fast becoming an integral part of today’s smart home, with intelligent technology that not only makes possible exceptional control and ease of use, but also is unrivalled for reliability and easy installation. The new Aqualisa Smart Quartz Collection ‘ticks’ all these boxes, with intuitive control, stunning good looks and an unsurpassed level of personalisation and convenience.
The established Quartz name, universally respected by the shower trade, has been retained for this exciting new ‘headliner’ range. This evolution of the original Quartz digital shower creates a new generation of showers with an exceptional level of connectivity, including breakthrough voice activation, added to its established and renowned performance quality.
Quartz was launched back in 2001 and has since become the best-selling shower in its category. The product story for this exceptional product has seen a number of style developments over the past twenty years. The latest chapter sees advanced smart technology adopting the iconic Quartz name to provide state of the art showering via a mobile app that brings Aqualisa fully into the emerging smart home environment.
The shower’s technology has stood the test of time over the past nineteen years, consistently delivering the same high-performance showering experience. Adding connectivity pushes the boundaries of smart technology and takes showering to new levels. The next big thing for showering here in the UK has long been to establish Wi-Fi connection, app technology and voice activation as an integral part of the showering experience – all things that come as standard with the new Smart Quartz Collection from Aqualisa.
App technology allows the homeowner to control the smart digital shower via Wi-Fi, connecting through residential networks to the Aqualisa Smart Valve using safe and secure best practice for IoT/Connected devices. It utilises the simplest on-boarding techniques possible to establish secure and robust connection with the ASV via Wi-Fi. It’s voice activation and personalisation of the new showers that will make it stand out against the competition. It integrates with established smart home eco-systems via voice control – using Alexa.
The range consists of Quartz Blue, the introduction to the smart showering revolution for the new Collection, Quartz Classic, an already proven best seller now with added smart technology and top of the range Quartz Touch, which offers the most personal showering experience yet and to which devotees of the smart home will aspire. Every member of the family can activate their own personal shower requirement – created and saved on the App for the perfect, consistently repeated showering experience.
For builders, the new collection is a great proposition for new build, self-build or renovation projects, principally because the unique Aqualisa Smart Valve – the brains of the new smart collection – can be located up to 10 metres away from the shower itself, providing unbelievable flexibility in installation. Installers will find this new product range easy to sell, impressing their customers with the benefits of connectivity – voice activation being a major unique selling point.
“‘Alexa turn my shower on’ will quickly become a familiar command in homes with a new Aqualisa Smart Quartz Collection shower”, says Aqualisa CEO, Colin Sykes. “The Quartz excellence established from the early two thousands has now reached new heights and will offer homeowners the most sophisticated showering experience available. Despite the advent of the smart home and the arrival of a myriad of smart products, the suggestion, even five years ago, that showers would take this huge step into the world of smart technology would have been difficult to imagine. Thanks to Aqualisa, this is now a reality. It seems the most natural development for them to take, but we’re delighted it’s us introducing this technology to the UK and Ireland”, he adds.
Aqualisa designs and manufactures showering products that are renowned for their power, performance and reliability. The company also focuses obsessively on safety, quality, durability and, as you would expect, aesthetics – creating the best looking showers you can buy, with inspiring designs that will complement any bathroom or wet room and allow homemakers to indulge their own sense of style and individuality.
Features like one touch activation, sensor control, pre-set shower programming, LED display screen, water saving technology, and consistently precise water temperatures and flow, remain hallmarks of Aqualisa showers. Now, the latest introductions take the market into ‘intelligent’ showering to new levels through connectivity acknowledging the increasing use of smart devices in the home. The bathroom is next in line for smart technology and Aqualisa is the leading innovator of ‘smart’ in this increasingly important room in the house.
