Smart technology is making headway in our daily lives.
Now we can walk into our homes and request for Alexa to turn on the lights, the TV, and even re-order our groceries. Smart technology is also making its tracks in the plumbing industry.
A Little Trivia: According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, 10.7 million U.S. Amazon customers have an Amazon Echo, and a new trend emerges: smart bathrooms.
Companies like Kohler are leading the way in how smart technology impacts our homes and everyday lives.
“We provide thoughtful design and technologies that offer convenience and functionality to enrich your personalized experiences, making them easier, more comfortable and more enjoyable,” says David Kohler, president and CEO of Kohler Co. “Whether you’re getting ready for work, helping your children through their evening bedtime routine or simply in need of some personal relaxation, KOHLER Konnect is the next evolution of our kitchen and bathroom innovations that help make these everyday moments better.”
Plumbing Fixtures Birmingham: The Kohler Sensate Pulldown Faucet
The Sensate touchless faucet frees your hands so you can speed through cooking and cleanup tasks while enjoying a cleaner, more hygienic kitchen environment. Sensate’s intuitive Response® technology is in tune with your every move: a simple wave of your hand-or an object such as a pan or utensil-turns it on or off.
The faucet’s sensor is precision-designed to provide reliable operation every time and to prevent false activations when you’re working in the sink area. Sweep® spray creates a wide, forceful blade of water for superior cleaning. Kohler’s new docking system, DockNetik, secures the pull-down spray head to the spout using magnetic force.
