    Can you spare a square? Just one square?

    Somehow that level automation seems like beginning of the end.

    Next logical step, integrate it with payroll so bathroom time your clocked out.

    And we all know how reliable ANYTHING man made is. Really ticks me off to be sitting there and the lights time out...

    Last episode of This Old House has a residential stall that senses when you walk in, two buttons for lifting the cover or the seat, an automatic butt washer if you like, the cover or seat now goes down by itself when finished & as you walk out the stall the toilet flushes itself.

    I have always thought that bathroom exhaust fans should have a gas detector driving speed from a minimum balanced setpoint to maximum.
