Are you tired of your old, boring mirror that just sits there and reflects your face back at you? Well then, it’s time to upgrade to the ultimate in mirror technology: the smart mirror.
Depending on what features you want, a smart mirror can give you up-to-date information on the weather, the time, the indoor temperature, and more, or, you can choose to listen to your favorite music via Bluetooth – whether you are getting ready to start your morning or relaxing in the tub at the end of a long day.
In fact, installing a smart mirror is exactly what we chose to do recently when renovating what looked more like a prison cell than a luxury bathroom before we moved in (as you can see in the estate agent photo below left). Below right is the same bathroom as it is now with our new smart mirror installed.
We love how the lighting from the smart mirror softens and enhances the overall look of our bathroom. I am personally very impressed with the anti-mist feature which keeps the surface of the mirror clear and steam-free so I can now use the bathroom mirror to do my makeup.
Smart mirrors don’t all have the same features, so it can be a little confusing to work out what each model does and doesn’t have. Below is a list of the main features that smart mirrors will allow you to do:
Different Features of Smart Mirrors:
- Real-time weather updates with recognizable weather icons
- Indoor temperature and humidity readings
- Alarm settings to help keep you on schedule
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Dimmable or color-changing lighting options
- Anti-mist pad for a clear center of the mirror
- Magnifying area for makeup or shaving, with some models featuring a lighted magnifying area.
Now, not just any smart mirror will do. You want the best, and that’s where we come in. We’ve scoured the internet, tested the products, and ranked them from good to great to absolute perfection. And the winner, drumroll please… is the BYECOLD Vanity Touch Switch Bathroom Mirror.
The BYECOLD Vanity Touch Switch Bathroom Mirror is a cut above the rest, with its impressive array of features. The connection to the WiseMirror app gives you real-time weather updates, while the touch button lets you adjust the color temperature on the fly. And if you’re worried about fogging up the mirror, fear not – the anti-fog function kicks in immediately, clearing up the mirror in just 5-10 minutes. This mirror is built to last, too, with its durable, armored glass and IP54 waterproof rating. Plus, it comes in a range of sizes and configurations to suit any wall space and has a 1-year warranty for peace of mind. All in all, it’s a versatile and functional choice that blows the competition out of the water.

Our Top Pick
The ultimate smart mirror with WiFi and weather updates!
Simple and elegant with a clear display, the BYECOLD smart mirror has an impressive range of features, above and beyond the lights and anti-fog that standard touch switch mirrors have. It’s even possible to customize it if you contact the seller beforehand.
Priced at under $400 for the largest size option, the BYECOLD smart mirror is not only beautiful but it’s affordable too.
The mirror is controlled by a sensitive smart touch button that allows you to adjust the color temperature to your liking. Simply switch the button on the black box at the back of the mirror and you can freely switch between 3000k and 6000k colors.
But that’s not all. This mirror connects to the WiseMirror app. This allows you to get real-time weather forecasts with eleven different recognizable icons. So it’s all right there for you to see.
And if you’re worried about your mirror fogging up, don’t! The anti-fog function on this vanity mirror kicks in immediately when you turn on the anti-fog button, clearing up the mirror in just 5-10 minutes. It’s safe, energy-efficient, and can even be turned on in advance before you use the mirror.
What about durability I hear you say? Well, this mirror is made of strong, armored glass that won’t easily break. Even if it does, it won’t shatter into pieces like regular glass would. The LED strips also come with a silvered reflection layer and are copper-free and environmentally friendly. Plus, the mirror has an IP54 waterproof rating, ensuring safe lighting in even the wettest of bathroom environments.
Installation is a breeze too, with four pairs of dowels and screws included in the package. And with the smart touch switch, you can easily access the mirror’s three major functions — light, defogging, and weather forecast.
In short, this backlit, smart, anti-fog vanity mirror is the ultimate addition to any bathroom. It’s stylish, functional, and easy to use, giving you a quick and intelligent experience every time you use it.

Sleek, budget-friendly, ultrathin, and packed with features!
It’s got a sleek, ultrathin design thanks to the integrated ABS sheet on the back, which also makes it sturdy and safe to use in wet bathroom environments. It’s even waterproof up to IP54 rate.
This budget-friendly smart mirror won’t break the bank. Packed with features, it has a sleek, ultrathin design thanks to the integrated ABS sheet on the back, which also makes it sturdy and safe to use in wet bathroom environments. It’s even waterproof up to IP54 rate.
But the real kicker? It’s got a built-in Bluetooth speaker that lets you listen to your favorite tunes while getting ready in the morning or relaxing in the shower after a long day. And the best part? No more fogging up the mirror after a steamy shower. The defogger kicks in automatically, so it’s always clear.
The lighted vanity mirror also has a memory sensor that allows you to control the light and defogger with a wall switch. It remembers the last state of the light, so when you turn it back on, it’s just as you left it. Plus, the light is dimmable and has three color temperature settings: white, warm, and daylight.
But what really sets this mirror apart is its front LED light. It’s brighter, clearer, and more realistic than the typical backlit vanity mirror, so you can see yourself in the truest light possible. Perfect for makeup application, grooming, and skincare.

And if your phone rings – you can quickly answer it by pressing the touch switch button on the mirror.

Best Budget Option
A fab Budget Option with Bluetooth!
The Homecart smart mirror is our budget choice and although it has fewer features than our other two picks, it does have Bluetooth.
At well under $200 it’s suitable for those on a tight budget and is excellent value for money.
Simply connect it to your phone and with a touch of the button, you can play your favorite tunes through the hidden speakers on the back of the mirror. It’s like having your own personal concert while you get ready in the morning.
But this mirror is more than just a speaker. It’s backlit by 4000K LEDs, which provide a cool, neutral light that’s perfect for makeup application, grooming, and skincare. And if you’re worried about fogging up the mirror after a steamy shower, fear not – it has an anti-fog function that’s activated with a touch of a button.
The mirror measures 23.6 x 31.5 x 1.2 inches and is only available in this size. So if you’re looking for a smaller or larger option, this may not be the right choice for you. Also, it’s worth noting that the anti-fog strip covers a large square in the central area of the mirror. While this shouldn’t be a problem for most people, it’s something to keep in mind.
Overall, this Bluetooth smart mirror is a stylish and functional addition to any bathroom. It’s got everything you need – and maybe a little bit more.
- Bluetooth connectivity allows for playing music through hidden speakers on the back of the mirror
- Backlit by 4000K LEDs for a cool, neutral light
- Anti-fog function to prevent fogging after steamy showers
- Large size (23.6 x 31.5 x 1.2 inches) provides ample space for makeup application, grooming, and skincare
- Only available in one size, may not be suitable for all bathroom wall spaces
- Anti-fog function only covers the central area of the mirror, outer edges may still fog up (but then again that’s true for all of them).
Worthy of a Mention
For a fraction of the price of a full-sized smart mirror, the Hansong Make up mirror is a small, free-standing version of the smart mirror – and an absolute must-have for doing your hair and make-up.
Simply connect the mirror to your phone through Bluetooth and you can listen to your favorite music while you are getting ready. And if your phone rings – you can even take calls.
What we love about the mirror is the way it can so easily be swiveled 360 degrees – so you can choose whether to position it in the horizontal or vertical position.
The addition of the included 3.5-inch detachable magnifying mirror with a magnification of 10X is great for make-up details or zooming in on those pores. Simply stick it to the mirror’s surface with the suction cups when needed.
Press and hold the touch button for 2-3 seconds and you can adjust the brightness of the light.
And what we particularly like is the flip power switch on the back to prevent the mirror lights from accidentally being turned on during travel or when in storage.
