Kohler’s smart toilet at CES 2019
One of the keywords at CES 2019 was voice control, and yes, that includes your toilet…
At CES, Kohler showcased its Kohler’s Konnect portfolio of smart products that includes a smart bathroom with extended voice control technology that controls ambient light and music.
One collection of products released is the Veil Lighted Bathroom Collection. This system essentially brings immersive and connected lighting into your entire bathroom space. The fully integrated lighting system includes a mirror, a three-piece vanity set, a toilet, and a freestanding bath. With this collection, you can control all of the lights via voice, motion control, and a remote controller.
A highlight of Kohler’s offerings was the Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet. The smart toilet features a heated seat, built in speakers, and personalized cleansing and dryer functions. The toilet also includes interactive multi-colored lights that create an ambient atmosphere.
Another highlight of Kohler’s CES offerings was the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror. The mirror, which can be set up with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, provides seamless integration and voice control features to your bathroom or bedroom. The mirror also features adjustable LED lights, stereo speakers, and a motion activated nightlight.
Another bathroom product is a bath filler called PerfectFill. This system can draw a bath to any desired depth and temperature via a voice command and can be customized with different presets.
Along those same lines is the DTV+ shower system – this is a shower module in which consumers can create sound, water, lighting, and steam presets. Spa day anyone?
Another interesting product is the PureWarmth Heated Toilet Seat – this is a heated seat that adjusts to three temperature settings via the Kohler Konnect app. The toilet also feature a lighting system.
For the kitchen, Kohler unveiled the Sensate Touchless Kitchen Faucet. This facet allows you to turn the faucet on/off and dispense measured amounts of water via voice and motion commands.
Some of these new products sound completely futuristic and, frankly, unnecessary; however, if you want to deck your bathroom and kitchen with the latest technology, look no further than Kohler’s Konnect system.
