Disclosed is a system designed to accommodate the preferences of the various users of a shower in a home. In a home which is inhabited by a number of individuals, a multitude of preferences is bound to exist regarding preferences of shower settings. Each individual likes a certain water temperature/pressure setting and certain shower head settings. The proposed invention aims to accommodate the preferences of the inhabitants of a home via the storage of user settings in a small computer/processor device which will regulate the shower. The shower will be controlled by a computing device which will allow a user to identify himself/herself upon usage of the shower. The shower will allow one to set his or her settings, including shower head placement, water flow settings provided by the shower head (e.g., massage) and also settings of water temperature/pressure. The user will be allowed to save his or her "shower" preferences. Consequently, upon future use of the "intelligent" shower, the user will not have to spend time tweaking the shower settings to have their shower provide them with the output they are looking for. 1
