The Shower Experience for All the Senses

A New Era of Showering with hansgrohe RainTunes
Schiltach, March 2019. With its RainTunes range, hansgrohe presents a whole new era of showering for a tailored, intensive shower experience and demonstrates how, in the age of advancing connectivity, products in the usual high quality are redefining moments with water. After all, water is our constant companion and we come into contact with it several times a day. As one of the sector’s leading innovators and designers, hansgrohe cares most about making this contact a special experience. “We conceptualize water in the bathroom in completely new dimensions with a focus on the individual and their multisensory experience. We would like to transform the bathroom into a tailored, highly personal oasis of well-being,” explains Marc André Palm, Head of Global Brand Marketing at hansgrohe.

hansgrohe RainTunes: Innovation Meets Emotion

The RainTunes digital shower system links water, light, sound, and fragrance to create a holistic water experience for all the senses. The focus here is totally on the individual and their personal moods and needs. In close collaboration with experts from a whole range of professions, hansgrohe has created digitally controlled shower scenarios that are geared towards the user’s individual everyday life. RainTunes will initially offer seven multisensory shower scenarios, which adapt to the user’s personal daily mood, offering just the right shower experience. It was developed with the support of many experts, including dermatologists, sports physicians, physical therapists, and aromatherapy specialists. The scenarios currently available are “Good Morning,” “Revitalization,” “Vitality,” “Relaxation,” “Beauty,” “Nature,” and “Good Night.” The specially developed hansgrohe home app connects with the hansgrohe shower products via the home Wi-Fi network. Lighting and sound can also be controlled via Wi-Fi-connected systems already used in the smart home. For example, Phillips Hue takes care of atmospheric lighting. hansgrohe provides the appropriate fragrance for the shower scenario with its new range of RainScent fragrance tabs. The shower scenario selected is transmitted to the shower with a tap on the app and then activated there via the Play button – whenever you are ready.

Two Solutions, Countless Experiences

RainTunes is controlled using RainButtons or the RainPad. RainButtons are control buttons that can be positioned anywhere and allow you to adjust spray modes, water flow, and temperature. The Play button activates the shower scenario selected on the hansgrohe home app. Bluetooth technology has enabled a whole new method of controlling the shower: separating the permanently installed faucet and its controls. That is because the RainButtons are connected via Bluetooth with a central unit behind the wall and therefore separated from the faucet. As a result, a warm-up button can be positioned anywhere in the shower. The digital RainPad control panel operates the shower via a permanently installed, central control panel. It also receives the various shower scenarios via the hansgrohe home app and activates them when the Play symbol is pressed on the RainPad touch screen. You also have the option, of course, to customize the daily shower ritual using the RainPad. Temperature, water flow, musical accompaniment, and spray mode can be changed at any time.
