How to choose a quality LED mirror: What is an LED mirror?
You have heard of Bluetooth, but what about a Bluetooth speaker in a bathroom mirror? How about a bathroom mirror with an in-built digital clock that allows you to keep track of time when you are getting ready?
These are the features of bathroom LED mirrors nowadays. Not to mention the backlit bathroom mirrors that come with the in-built demister pads, which have been in the market for more than a decade.
Nonetheless, these so-called “backlit mirrors” do not merely reflect the perfect you. Today, illuminated mirrors come in a bundle with many well-thought technology features and designs that would positively help our daily lives. Examples of built-in features include a demister, digital clocks, Bluetooth connection and speakers, a magnifying mirror and for a more premium feature, some even come with an in-built TV.
Did you notice that I called this type of mirror many different names? These bathroom mirrors with in-built functions are described in many different ways, from backlit mirror, LED mirror, bathroom LED mirror, bathroom lighted mirror to illuminated mirror, smart mirror or backlit mirror cabinet if the mirror comes with a storage cavity. The list goes on.
However, at Remer, we call them “Remer Mirrors” because none of the names above fully represent the heart and soul that has gone into designing our products. We will use Remer Mirrors as example/illustration in this context.
So the question is: What is a LED Mirror?
1. Lighting and Demister
Essentially, these mirrors do the job your standard slab of glass does, but much better. Most of the bathroom is positioned at the darker position of a home due to privacy, naturally, it lacks natural light, the LED lights around the mirror’s edging allows for more light in your bathroom space. If you’re sick of coming out of the shower to a fogged-up bathroom mirror that you have to wipe with your towel, then the Demister Pad function has you covered. The best thing is that these functions are all activated by a simple touch. When these functions are not in use, the touch switches are illuminated by low-energy LED lights so that when you enter your bathroom in the dark you can still see and activate the functions if necessary.
2. Bluetooth Audio
Additionally, if you are finding it too quiet in the bathroom with just you, your singing and the running water, the problem is solved when Remer Bathroom mirrors come with in-built speakers and Bluetooth connection. Once you have connected your mobile device to the mirror’s Bluetooth, the mirror will make a light twinkling noise to let you know that it is ready. Choose any song from your phone’s playlist, Spotify, or even YouTube or radio, and that song will play through the mirror’s in-built speakers. Everyone knows it is way more fun getting ready with music playing, and now that can continue into the bathroom!
There are so many additional features that turn this bathroom mirror from something ordinary, to something extraordinary. Nevertheless, the most distinctive function of these LED mirrors, are the LED lights themselves. For a long time, plain glass slab mirrors were lined with a LED strip light to give the effect of grandeur and luxury. That is a thing of the past now, with the combination of LED lights, mirrors, and smart technology taking over.
It is official that touch activated LED mirrors are dominating the scene. Take a look at The Block AU for example, with 2017 couple Jason and Sarah incorporating this on-trend technology in their main bathroom design.
LED lighted mirrors might seem like a new fad, but in fact they are just new products based on old principles and technology. We have had LED lights for ages, and we have had mirrors for ages. LED illuminated mirrors are merely a blend of both, combined with smart modern day technology!
