Abstract:
In order to detect biological information with a high degree of accuracy, this remote control (20) for a toilet is provided with a casing (21) provided in a toilet room (R), an operation unit (23) provided on the outer surface of the casing (21) for remotely operating an electric device (17) accessory to a toilet apparatus (11), and a sensor (25) which is provided in the outer surface of the casing (21) and which detects biological information by a fingertip being pressed thereon. Prioritizing ease of operation of the operation unit (23), the attachment position of this toilet remote control (20) is arranged in a position above the toilet seat (14) at a height relatively near to the heart of the person seated on the toilet seat (14). The person seated on the toilet seat (14) is then not forced into an unnatural posture when touching the operation unit (23) or the sensor (25) with the fingers.
