Digital Shower System FAQs
What is a digital shower system?A digital shower system allows you to control your shower settings without stepping inside the shower. KOHLER LuxStone® offers this through the DTV Mode accessory, which can control two shower outlets independently, and Anthem, which can manage up to three spray outlets. Both devices also offer temperature, flow and warm-up/power-down control for a more customizable shower experience.
What does DTV Mode do?With DTV Mode, you can turn your shower on and off with the touch of a button, as well as power up to two shower outlets and precisely control water temperature without using a lever. DTV Mode is also compatible with the KOHLER Mode app, allowing you to control your shower using your smartphone.
What does Anthem do?Anthem provides digital or push-button control of up to three spray outlets, water temperature and flow for a more personalized shower experience. Anthem is also compatible with the KOHLER Konnect app for smartphone operation of shower functions.
What types of faucets can DTV Mode and Anthem control?DTV Mode and Anthem can control traditional showerheads, rainheads, body sprays, handshowers and tub fillers. DTV Mode can connect to a maximum of two shower outlets, while Anthem can connect to three; both systems allow concurrent and independent control of connected shower outlets.
What is the difference between DTV Mode and Anthem?DTV Mode and Anthem are designed to fine-tune your shower experience, making it easier to set and adjust your preferences to a precise water temperature and flow rate. Mode’s round, dial-like design is as unobtrusive as possible; Anthem’s slim, sleek shape allows it to blend seamlessly with your other shower fixtures. Also, both devices offer app compatibility for remote operation. When deciding which digital shower system is right for you, choosing between Mode and Anthem requires consideration of your shower’s design. While Mode can power up to two spray outlets, Anthem can operate up to three, so you can choose the device that best fits the number of fixtures you aim to control while showering.
What are the benefits of smart shower systems?In addition to controlling multiple outlets at once, smart shower systems offer the comfort and safety of precise temperature control. Simple icons offer easy on/off control and guidance as you select your preferred temperature. Warm-up functions improve the shower experience by eliminating the discomfort of a too-cold or too-hot shower. There is also a countdown feature that helps you limit your water usage. The digital screen will show a countdown to the time you set before shutting off. This is also useful for filling a bathtub.
What is the thermostatic shower valve?The thermostatic shower valve is the component in your new DTV system that allows you to pre-set your water temperature for a more consistent shower while still allowing for manual adjustments. The valve is designed to prevent shifts in water temperature that may occur when other water-using home appliances are active, like your washing machine or bathroom sink. With a pre-set temperature through your thermostatic shower valve, you can avoid the experience of a suddenly-scalding or -chilly shower, no matter where water is used in your household.
