Toto’s Neorest 700H toilet is smart enough to sense your presence and automatically open the lid. The same sensors tell it to lower the lid and flush automatically when you step away. The unit comes with a remote control that lets the user manage features such as oscillating and pulsating bidet spray, seat temperature control, and a night-light. It’s also good for the environment. The toilet automatically mists the bowl with water electrolyzed so it contains a small concentration of sodium hypochlorite, the active ingredient in household bleach. This misting keeps the bowl cleaner and, along with vacuum suction, helps the toilet get rid of waste with less water.
