Do you hate waiting for your bath to run? With Kohler’s new PerfectFill controller, you don’t have to. With just a click on the Kohler Konnect app or a voice command on Alexa or Google Assistant, PerfectFill fills up your bathtub with water to a preset level and at the selected temperature. Although this tech is not new, it has always just been a concept.
But now, PerfectFill will be available for purchase this May, according to CNET, starting at $2,700. Kohler Co. announced this and a few more products at the virtual CES 2021.
Aside from PerfectFill, Kohler is also introducing a $199 Touchless Residential Bathroom Faucet. The battery-powered Touchless line was previously only available for its kitchen products. Now, the product enables you to turn the water on or off with simple hand gestures in the bathroom as well.
The Statement Showering Collection and Anthem Valves and Controls are other new additions to the Kohler bathroom lineup. The new Statement Collection includes showerheads, body sprays, and other shower nozzles, starting at $110. Priced at $795, the Anthem valves are supposed to work with the Statement Collection fixtures and can be controlled through the Kohler app and voice assistants.
Along similar lines, Kohler is also debuting a kitchen faucet—The Purist Suspend—that hangs from the ceiling, has 180 degrees rotation, and can be controlled by a waterproof, battery-operated Bluetooth puck. The product can be operated by the puck-shaped remote, which turns it on and off and adjusts the temperature. The faucet is priced at a whopping $6,235 with the main concept being reducing counter clutter.
