Illumibowl Anti-Germ is a device that attaches to the toilet and sanitizes the toilet bowl using a safe, medical-grade technology that kills germs using non-UVC wavelengths of light.
Developed by the same team that created the IllumiBowl Toilet Night Light, the Anti-Germ goes a step further, using a safe, medical-grade technology that kills germs using non-UVC wavelengths of light. Once in place, the Anti-Germ IllumiBowl will emit its germ-killing light for 15 seconds every two minutes, and eight full minutes every 24 hours.
Illumibowl Anti-Germ uses a special bulb that releases a germ-killing and non-ultraviolet light wavelength, ensuring it will sanitize the bowl without being unsafe for humans. Specifically, it uses the blue spectrum light they use to cleanse and disinfect various items in hospitals in the open, which can damage the photo receptors of most common toilet bacteria in just six minutes of exposure. An onboard illumination sensor ensures the darn thing only lights up when the room is dark, while a motion sensor triggers the LED only when movement is detected within the vicinity. When not in use (e.g. when the house is empty), the LED will turn on once a day for eight minutes at a time to keep the bowl sanitized.
Motion-activated night light, it’s designed to turn on as soon as it detects movement, just like the ones you have in the bedroom and along the hall, keeping you from running onto table edges and slipping on remote control toilet bowl carts that, somehow, end up randomly scattered across your floor. Unlike them, this one sits right on the bowl, illuminating that oval area where the water’s supposed to go. That way, you’ll know exactly where to aim, minimizing the chances that your bathroom ends up being another smelly mess come morning.
Illumibowl hooks onto the rim of the bowl, monitoring any movement around the vicinity, then switching on when you walk in and off when you leave. The device sits along the edge the entire time, so it makes no contact with the dirtier portion of the bowl. It uses 5mm color-changing LEDs that go from one color to another every few seconds, so you’ll be peeing to the sight of slowly-changing changing disco lights at ungodly hours, which can never be a bad thing. It runs on a pair of AAA batteries.
