Your commode finally has a smart mode. Digital Trends reports that American manufacturing company Kohler unveiled a toilet at CES 2019 that boasts built-in support for voice assistants.

The Kohler Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet’s features include water efficiency checks to conserve water and interactive, multicolored smart lighting for nighttime visits to the loo. A heated seat as well as personalized cleansing and drying functionality add to its many perks.

The voice control feature, of course, is stealing the show at CES 2019. The toilet’s built-in high-quality speakers have an Alexa integration so questions on the can are now a can-do. Play your favorite tunes on Alexa and get treated to a coordinated light show from the Numi, turning your bathroom into a mini-dance party, Digital Trends says.

“Connected technology is driving innovation in the smart home category, but connectivity alone isn’t enough. We believe in leading with design and seamlessly incorporating the right technologies so that our customers can personalize their bathroom experiences to be just right for them.”

We believe in leading with design and seamlessly incorporating the right technologies so that our customers can personalize their bathroom experiences to be just right for them,” said David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co in a statement. 

“For 145 years, Kohler has brought innovative and quality products to the marketplace that offer convenience and comfort in kitchen and bath spaces. KOHLER Konnect continues our industry leadership by offering whole-room solutions with more voice control, better music and sound, and dynamic lighting environments through our KOHLER Konnect portfolio.”

The Kohler Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet is one of several connected products debuting in the KOHLET Konnectportfolio along with the Veil Lighted Bathroom Collection and the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror.

If you’re on the market for a smart toilet, Digital Trends says you can expect it to hit the market during the first quarter of 2019 for $7000-8000, depending on the finish.
