U by Moen is a smart shower system that allows homeowners to control their shower with voice activation, a smartphone app or a control panel. Owners can set timers or specific water temperatures, and pause water flow once it reaches the desired temperature if they aren’t ready to get in yet.

The shower can be configured with two or four outlets, and can support up to six shower heads, including an overhead rain shower, hand shower and four body spray jets.
