Both Kohler and Moen announced connected shower products, like Kohler's Moxie showerhead + smart speaker and Moen's latest U by Moen Smart Shower. With these upgrades to your shower, you can start the shower from your smartphone and in Moen's case, even use Siri to adjust settings like temperature.

Other popular products at CES this year include smart faucets, which let you initiate water flow by either waving your hand or talking to the faucet. Kohler's Touchless Toilet introduces a similar idea, letting you flush the toilet by waving your hand near the lever. Check out all of the announcements below.

Kohler's announcements:

  • Moxie showerhead + smart speaker - A combination of a Kohler showerhead with a Harman Kardon smart speaker, that lets you listen to music and talk to a built-in voice assistant while you shower.
  • Aquifer Refine water purification system - Eliminate harmful contaminants from your kitchen water with a system that features Wi-Fi connectivity to monitor usage and leak detection.
  • Setra touchless kitchen faucet - A faucet with touchless on/off operation that uses motion control and a voice assistant to activate the faucet.
  • DTV Mode digital shower system - Create customized bath presets, adjust temperature, and remotely start your shower from a connected app.
  • Touchless Toilet - Kohler's new toilet offers touchless flushing through an integrated sensor.

Moen's announcements:

  • Moen Network - Moen is expanding its smart ecosystem across a full line of smart home products, including kitchen and bath fixtures, after first only being available in the U by Moen Smart Shower.
  • Smart Faucet - Take advantage of smart features like precise measurements, exact temperatures, and unlimited personalized presets, with voice activation controls.
  • Smart Water Detector - Detect and prevent leaks, monitor water usage, and more using a small device that connects to Moen's smartphone app.
  • Smart Shower - The next generation Moen Smart Shower features mobile connectivity, 12 customized presets, and the ability to control the shower from your smartphone or through ‌Siri‌.

After spending a lot of time in Japan, the US toilets are crap and are in need of upgrading.

I’m just not ready for smart toilets yet, I’m pretty content with my current setup.

The problem with smart bathrooms is lack of thought into their products.

I want to say “I’m awake, my shower light turns on and 3 minutes later the water starts to set its temperature and music starts playing on my Sonos One SL.

If it’s cold, I want my heated floor to turn on and my heat lamp.

I also want my toilet lid to open when I approach and flush when I’m done.


my shower should have the perfect amount of soap applied to me and rinsed by 17 water jets.

When I step out, I want a ceiling mounted blower to dry the **** out of my skin followed by moisturizing spray.

I don’t want to do **** myself when I walk in and out. Until then, kohler and everyone else can suck it
