Pioneering the bathroom of the future, SmartTap revolutionises the shower experience both for guests and commercial property owners, delivering personalised, easy-to-use showering alongside real-time insights, control over water consumption and wet system optimisation.
SmarTap combines a purely indulgent experience with elegant design. Guests can set the temperature, flow and duration via a dedicated smartphone app, creating a perfect personalised shower or bath at their convenience and according to their preferences every time.
Incorporating voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, SmarTap assists in propelling hotel, spa and gym brands to the forefront by delivering a unique and unparalleled experience for their guests and members.
Supported by advanced, patented technology, SmarTap's dashboards transform the hotel's wet system operations by analysing water consumption on a room-by-room basis, enabling precise monitoring and control of water flow and pressure to create significant utility savings. The dashboards also highlight potential faults such as leaks in the hotel's piping, minimising impact at their earliest stage.
Ideal for new builds or renovation, SmarTap is quick and easy to install, has modular replacement parts and offers simple integration with other smart hotel programs, such as smart lighting or a smart thermostat. The system's technology receives over-the-air updates, ensuring enhancements and upgrades are delivered automatically over time.
SmarTap's successful multi-year pilot in the Sheraton Tel Aviv delivered 30% water reduction, 8% energy reduction, savings of US$105 (UK£80) per room per year (based on 70% occupancy) and a flawless system performance.
"There are no other systems that do what SmarTap does—giving you real control over the hotel's wet systems." says Eran Zohar, Chief Engineer, Sheraton Tel Aviv. "We are committed to saving on energy and water as part of our global commitment and SmarTap gives us the opportunity to do just that. The system automatically sanitises the water pipes, which offers great savings to the hotel—around 20–30% on water—and controls the maximum temperature so that children can bathe safely. Plus, our guests absolutely love the new shower and find it very easy to operate—our feedback was nothing but positive."
The Sheraton Tel Aviv is now scaling SmarTap's solution throughout the hotel. Meanwhile, in the UK, SmarTap is being trialled in the Novotel Bristol Centre Hotel, Bristol.
"Having installed SmarTap in our busy city centre hotel, I've been extremely impressed with both its performance and the positive feedback we get from guests. Our customers love the sleek design and easy to use controls, with many commenting on how much they enjoyed the app functionality to customise their showering experience." says Mohsen Delfan, Chief Engineer, Novotel Bristol Centre Hotel.
"Meanwhile, maintenance is quick and easy, with no need to access the room, disturb guests or hire a plumber. SmarTap also offers other ingenious ways to save money, including the ability to monitor water usage, providing data which can be shared across our entire chain."
Mohsen adds "Safety is paramount in the hospitality industry, which is where SmarTap really comes into its own, allowing us to cap the water temperature, eliminating the risk of accidental scalding. After almost a year of constant use, SmarTap has proved an excellent and popular addition to our hotel."
SmarTap is available at the Novotel Bristol Centre Hotel, Bristol, UK.
"SmarTap is ideal for operators of hotels, gyms and spas who want to differentiate their bathroom experience, minimise costs, enhance operations and meet sustainability goals," says Asaf Shaltiel, CEO of SmarTap. "Hotel showers are often over-designed and complicated to use. In contrast, SmarTap is the most advanced solution on the market and easy to control, either via smartphone, voice-based virtual assistants or manually, perfectly suited for leading luxury brands seeking to offer an unparalleled bathroom experience."
