Voice-activated toilet wins innovation award at CES 2020
The Numi 2.0, Kohler’s most advanced intelligent, voice-activated toilet, has been honoured with an innovation award at this year’s (2020) CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas.
The annual event, recognised as the world stage for innovation, attracted more than 4500 brands showcasing their latest technology-driven consumer products – and from these the Numi 2.0 was selected as a recipient of the innovation award.
Key to Numi 2.0’s success is the Kohler Konnect app and embedded Amazon Alexa for easy voice control of personal-care functions and features, as well as access to personal playlists and tens of thousands of skills such as checking the weather, the traffic, accessing news etc. In short, Numi 2.0, a toilet and bidet in one, delivers complete hands-free control of a personal care experience that has been fine-tuned to the user’s exact preferences – from ambient lights, heated seat and preferred cleansing functionality, to choice of music and air/water temperatures.
Sustainability credentials are also impressive with the toilet being one of the most water-efficient available – a mere three-litre/3.8-litre flush.
A night time visit to the Numi 2.0 showcases the brand’s innovation, whereby the integrated nightlight guides the user while the lid opens automatically to reveal a ready-warmed seat. When the user walks away, the toilet flushes and the lid closes.
The Numi 2.0’s dynamic multicoloured lighting and audio enhancements (via waterproof speakers offering exceptional sound quality), create a unique experience for homeowners – users simply voice-activate their profile and/or preferences on entering the bathroom.
Features of Numi 2.0, with Kohler Konnect, can be controlled through voice-command, the Kohler Konnect app, the remote or through internal sensors.
The Numi 2.0 by Kohler is currently unavailable in Australia and New Zealand.
