The seat temperature is adjustable, in normal situation during winter, it will maintain a temperature similar to human body’s, allow us have a more comfortable experience.

The toilet lid will automatically open when the human body approaches through infrared sensing, and close and auto flush when leaving.

The mainstream smart toilet lid products are all adapted to V-shape toilets. Besides, the smart toilet cover has restrictions on the distance between the water tank and the front end of the toilet seat and the distance between the installation holes.

Most families who buy smart toilet seat do not reserve a power source, and can only be extended with a wiring board, which increases the insecurity factor.
