Home appliance company Kohler launched a new product line called Kohler Konnect, which links a variety of kitchen and bathroom devices to a voice-controlled mirror. On display at CES 2018, the Verdera Mirror is programmed with Amazon’s Alexa, allowing the user to control the bathtub, faucet and even the toilet with their voice.

Users can operate the kitchen faucet, control features of an intelligent toilet, adjust the lighting embedded in a bathroom mirror, run an invigorating shower, and automatically fill a bath to a desired depth and temperature, all with simple voice commands. Specific amounts of water can also be requested from the kitchen and bathroom faucets, as in, “6 ounces of water, please.” All settings can be managed with a Kohler Konnect app, compatible with iPhone and Android.

“Voice services and connected devices have become integrated into every facet of the home—with the notable exception of the bathroom, until now,” said David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co, in a press release. “We provide thoughtful design and technologies that offer convenience and functionality to enrich your personalized experiences, making them easier, more comfortable, and more enjoyable.”

The rest of the Kohler Konnect line includes the Sensate kitchen faucet, the Numi smart toilet, the DTV+ shower system and the PerfectFill kit, which can fill a bath exactly to a desired depth and temperature. The Verdera mirror will be the first item from Kohler Konnect to go on sale this March.
