Nowadays smartphones and tablet PCs are pretty much standard for the multimedia world. The era of "smart" devices has begun and is making its mark in many different areas of life. In our homes too, it is hard to imagine life without clever high-tech elements any more. That's hardly surprising in view of the many practical benefits they offer, from automated domestic technology that provides greater energy and cost efficiency all the way to intelligent entertainment systems. But there are smart features for the kitchen and bathroom too, where electronic fittings simplify everyday life and help make our homes more convenient. That's why the portfolio of Swiss manufacturer KWC includes various e-fittings that aim to win customers over with their intelligent technology and intuitive usability.
Electronic fittings are fun to handle – and far more than just a gimmick for technophiles. In fact, thanks to their innovative technologies, e-fittings like those from KWC are prime examples of ecological awareness because they help promote an economical approach to water and energy: water only comes out of the tap when the user actually makes contact with the tactile sensor. Touch-free fittings also provide benefits – especially in the kitchen, where hygiene plays a crucial role. After kneading dough or handling raw meat, for instance, the cook can wash his or her hands without making the tap lever dirty. And then there's the convenience aspect: what youngsters perceive as a luxury becomes a useful barrier-free solution later on in life, when users may suffer from impaired mobility.
