  • Patent number: 11016639
    Abstract: A reconfigurable bathing apparatus includes a first showerhead, the first showerhead being connected to a first fluid outlet; a second showerhead, the second showerhead being connected to a second fluid outlet; and a processor, the processor being arranged to control fluid flow through the first fluid outlet in response to a first control action and to control fluid flow through the second fluid outlet in response to a second control action. The processor is arranged to be able to receive and implement a request to reconfigure its response to the control actions such that the first control action controls the second fluid outlet and the second control action controls the first fluid outlet.

  • Publication number: 20190330827
    Abstract: A bathing system includes a remotely controllable bathing apparatus and one or more computing devices which are arranged to support a plurality of user accounts. Each user account is arranged to control the bathing apparatus. When a first user account of the plurality of user accounts is used to control the bathing apparatus, the other user accounts of the plurality of user accounts are blocked from controlling one or more functions of the bathing apparatus for a blocking period which lasts until a pre-set condition is met.

  • Publication number: 20190334738
    Abstract: A control system for a bath includes one or more processors and one or more sensors. The one or more sensors are arranged to sense water flow parameter data as a user fills the bath and to transmit the water flow parameter data to the one or more processors. The one or more processors are arranged to determine water flow parameter values suitable for use to fill the bath based on the water flow parameter data, and store the determined water flow parameter values as a pre-set bath-fill option arranged to be used to automatically fill the bath for future use.
