An integrated toilet can either be controlled with a wireless remote or through a side panel. Although it may seem like a remote control is an easy choice, some people find otherwise. This is because there are benefits to having the controls on a side panel.
A side panel is basically a control panel that is physically attached to the integrated toilet. That’s all that really distinguishes it from a remote controlled integrated toilet.
This feature is one of the things that makes this a better choice than a remote controlled integrated toilet. Because it is attached to the toilet itself, there is no chance it going missing. Funny as it may sound, there are cases of integrated toilet remote controls getting lost. This is especially true when there are kids around the house. Finding that the remote control is missing after you’re done using the toilet can be really frustrating. With an integrated toilet with a side panel. You shouldn’t have to worry about this.
Another thing that people like about these kinds of integrated toilet is the size of the buttons and the icons. Many of today’s integrated toilets make use of large buttons and prints on their side panels. This makes it easier to see and read them, and thus reduces any chance of you pressing the wrong button.
Some people with disabilities also have issues with remote controlled integrated toilet. Because you have to hold them in order to operate them. Unlike with a side panel where all you have to worry about is pressing the button. People with medical injuries or have weak hands are the ones who usually benefits from having these side panels.
The design of an integrated toilet with side panels is basically a personal issue. Whether they look good or not is an issue of personal preference. Some people do not like the idea of the side panel sticking out of the toilet itself. Also, these types of toilets tend to look larger because of this. However, the additional size is merely a few inches here and there, and not usually very obvious unless you look at it intently.
Whether you choose to go for a remote controlled or side paneled integrated toilet, you’ll want to do your research first.
