The wireless controller has been thoughtfully created with a hybrid interface to aid the transition from mechanical to digital. Simply turn the product on, twist the outer ring to increase water flow and press the plus or minus button to increase or decrease the temperature. For enhanced safety and comfort, an LED ring gives instant visual feedback on the water temperature. The outer ring of the controller features GROHE ProGrip,a textured surface which emphasises the point of interaction and acts as a reassuring grip for wet hands.

Evaluation

Bath taps can be confusing to operate but this product elegantly combines on/off, temperature, and flow control in a single unit. An easy-to-understand LED light displays water temperature. The handle is flat and compact but its sides are textured to ensure that there is no loss of operability.
