Kohler Co. is showcasing five new smart home offering and Kohler Konnect products at CES 2020, which is currently underway in Las Vegas. They are the Moxie showerhead and smart speaker, Aquifer Refine water purification system, Setra touchless faucet with Kohler Konnect, DTV Mode shower system, and new Touchless Toilet technology.
Features and personal preferences are managed through the Kohler Konnect application for iOS and Android devices. Powered by the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, Kohler Konnect offers support in select products for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit.
The new Moxie showerhead and wireless smart speaker combines Kohler Performance Showering with Harman Kardon audio. The showerhead features a full coverage spray and delivers the benefits of connected bathroom technology with its portable smart speaker and built-in voice assistant. The portable in-shower smart speaker and voice assistant provides hands-free control that performs seamlessly in the shower, in the home, or on the go.
The Aquifer Refine water purification system can be easily installed into any kitchen, offering a convenient way to use the highest quality water every day at home. With three-stage filtration, the Aquifer Refine eliminates harmful contaminants from kitchen water such as lead, mercury, select pharmaceuticals, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants. It features Wi-Fi connectivity to monitor water usage and filter life, built-in leak detection and optional auto-replenishment of filters via Amazon Dart.
Kohler is also adding to its touchless and connected kitchen faucet portfolio with Setra, offering touchless on/off operation through a sensor and on/off and measured dispense operation when paired with a voice assistant. Setra also monitors water usage and lets consumers track consumption in the Kohler Konnect app.
The DTV Mode digital shower system provides a simple push-button control of Kohler's digital shower with an integrated temperature dial. DTV Mode is available in three configurations: bath/shower, dual shower, and bath only. Create customized bath presets, adjust maximum temperature for added safety, and remotely start your shower or bath all from the app.
The new Touchless Toilet offers touchless flushing through the integration of a sensor placed in the flush lever of the toilet. By placing your hand in front of the lever, users can flush without spreading bacteria. The flush lever features a sensor light, adjustable through the Kohler app.
In addition to new products, CES 2020 attendees can participate in interactive demonstrations of Kohler smart home products introduced at past shows and available for purchase in 2020 including the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror; Sensate touchless kitchen faucet; Numi 2.0 intelligent toilet; DTV+ shower system; PureWarmth heated toilet seat; and Kohler automatic standby generators.
