The digital shower range from Mira has been enhanced with the addition of the Mira Mode, described as an accessibly priced mixer that offers the added convenience of app control from smartphones.
The app allows on/off operation, while enabling the user to programme maximum temperatures and shower duration. Additional features include switching the shower on via the app to warm-up, remote control set-up, and up to 10 personalised bath-fill settings.
For the commissioning installer, the app allows for straightforward set up, maximum temperature setting and easy troubleshooting. A chief benefit is the ability to configure feeds and outlets with the app. This means pipework can be installed in a convenient way, eliminating the need for awkward additional work – such as passovers – when trying to align with existing pipework, as outlets can be nominated subsequently through the app.
The Mira Mode wall-mounted main and remote controls provide on, off or outlet selection at the touch of a button. Twelve Mode product options are offered with either ceiling or rear fed fittings, and a choice of valves – a high pressure valve for mains pressurised systems or combination boilers or a pumped valve for low pressure or gravity fed systems. Eight valve-only options are also available.
Outlet options include a single outlet shower; a dual outlet with a 200mm drench head and handset that can be used together or independently; a shower and bath fill option (rear-fed, single shower outlet only); and a solus bath-fill.
A low-voltage data cable connects the controller and valve unit, and the valve can ben sited in a discreet location, such as in the loft, under a bath or another convenient location up to 10m from the controller.
It comes complete with a fittings kit, which includes the new 130mm Mira Switch handshower and a friction clamp bracket that can be operated single-handedly. Mira Switch enables users to choose between four spray modes by pressing a button at the base of the showerhead. Single-hand clamp bracket operation benefits elderly or vulnerable users with grip or balance issues. This product is considered ‘inclusive’ by occupational therapists.
