Kohler’s new smart shower technology almost made me expose myself indecently at CES

Everything is smart at CES 2024 – from vacuum cleaners to grills and lawn mowers, but one smart device almost made me take a rather public shower; Kohlers latest smart home wellness devices.

In particular, the Anthem+ Digital Control and System caught my attention, which offers an immense multi-sensory shower experience where washing machines adjust the water, light, sound and even steam. In fact, I was so impressed that I almost jumped in myself, crowds of spectators be damned.

Best of all? The Anthem+ integrates with the Kohler Konnect app and offers voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Home. There’s no Matter compatibility, but that’s not surprising; Matter support is only now rolling out to some of the major types of smart home devices, and it will be a while before smart plumbing arrives.
