7 things in your bathroom you’ll soon be able to control with Alexa
Touchless, voice-activated technology was made to be used in the bathroom.
If you know anything about home design, I’m guessing you know the name Kohler. Their kitchen and bath collections are some of the most visually stunning out there, and at CES 2018 they unveiled a whole new facet to their faucets (and showers and toilets and baths). Kohler Konnect marks the brand’s foray into the smart home world, and they’re making a big splash with a lineup of connected bath and kitchen products.
Bathroom humor aside, Kohler is a strong contender for anyone who wants to enjoy all the luxuries of design and technology in new and innovative ways. With Kohler Konnect and a lineup of seven new connected bathroom and kitchen products, your hands-free smart technology reaches into new areas of your home.
What is Kohler Konnect?
Kohler brings connectivity and voice command into the bathroom and kitchen in new ways with the all-new Kohler Konnect smart technology. The new service pairs with control your kitchen sink, bathroom mirror, shower, tub, and toilet all through Kohler’s new mobile app. Everything works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit as well, so you can use voice commands for everything from turning on your shower to warming up your toilet seat to dimming your mirror lights. Not only does this give you more control over devices that have been largely forgotten by the rest of the smart home community, but it does it all with the sleek, high-end design Kohler is known for.

Kohler also unveiled a toilet that is as smart as it is gorgeous in design, and it’s impressive. The Numi Intelligent Toilet is the complete package, featuring a heated seat, touchless flushing, a touchless lid and seat, Bluetooth music capabilities, a bidet setting, LED nightlights in the toilet, and even heated air that shoots out of the base to ease the shock of cold floors on bare feet. Like the other Kohler Konnect products, you can create custom profiles for different members of your household, adjusting everything from seat and bidet temperature to light color choices to music and more.
The Numi’s is currently estimated to cost between $5,625 and $7,825, but you’ll have plenty of time to put money aside for this investment, as it’s not due to reach the sales floor until the end of the year.
