Our smart bathroom technology

Never before has occupancy sensor technology been able to perform with such high accuracy within the hot and humid shower environment, until now.

After testing fourteen different sensor types, Shower Stream’s team of award-winning engineers devised a dependable and scalable solution to solve behavioral water waste. The patent-pending smart bathroom technology has elevated the traditional occupancy sensor with a radar solution that can detect an individual with 99% accuracy and without a line of sight or visual contact. Sophisticated, custom hardware and AI algorithms work together to determine when to shut off after water has reached the desired temperature, and when to resume the same levels upon the user’s return.

Vetted by esteemed institutions

Shower Stream has won awards, funding and support from some of the most respected industry leaders.

For 40 years, America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF has helped startups and small businesses transform their ideas into marketable products and services. We focus on high-risk, high-impact technologies — those that show promise but whose success hasn’t yet been validated — and each year, we award $200 million in funding to entrepreneurs across the country. Our goals are to foster innovation and help create businesses and jobs in the United States, and companies seed funded by our program have since gone on to tremendous success. We are a congressionally mandated program — Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR).

Venture Capital has changed... The process for building and growing technology startups has changed significantly over the past decade. Fundraising must also evolve with the demands required by today's entrepreneurs. New Stack Ventures was founded on the principle that both the 'Tech Stack' and the 'Funding Stack' will continue to evolve. At New Stack, we invest in the exceptions. Our startups often don't look like what's commonly funded in Silicon Valley. They are located outside of SF and NYC. The standard formula of Stanford educated, Google trained, Bay Area-located is NOT what we're looking for. We believe in mission-driven founders with an irrational commitment to their cause --regardless of location or circumstance.

An IoT water and energy management solution

Shower Stream’s device has outsmarted the competition. Previous water and energy saving products for the shower such as hot water recirculating pumps, low-flow shower heads, and drain water heat recovery systems can be costly to deploy and negatively impact a user’s experience. Shower Stream not only solved behavioral water waste in the shower, but also designed a product that is sleek, universally compatible and prioritizes bathroom aesthetics.
