Kohler Boosts Smart Home Portfolio For CES

With CES in its sights, Kohler has boosted its smart home product lineup and Kohler Konnect portfolio.

The company plans to introduce five new products at CES this year including the Aquifer Refine water purification system, Moxie showerhead and smart speaker, Setra touchless faucet with Kohler Konnect, DTV Mode shower system and new Touchless Toilet technology.

Kohler stated that, in their development, it has designed smart home products with a focus on comfort, convenience and enjoyment. In particular, the Kohler Konnect portfolio integrates innovative product design and quality craftsmanship with personalization options and command controls for smart kitchen and bathroom experiences, the company noted. The Kohler Konnect application for iOS and Android devices allows consumers to manage features and personal preferences. By tapping the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, Kohler Konnect offers support in select products for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit.

“As technology integrates more fully into our lives, it’s important to develop ways that it can help make things we do every day more comfortable and enjoyable,” said Larry Yuen, Kohler group president/kitchen and bath. “Kohler applies our industry heritage and passion for innovation to provide specific solutions in the kitchen and bathroom, such as smart kitchen faucets that offer hands-free experiences, unmatched sound quality for music in the shower or a range of innovative intelligent toilets that enhance your comfort in the bathroom.”
