Voice control, arguably the hottest smart home trend today, is now in every corner of kitchens and bathrooms. From appliances to mirrors that recently made big news, voice recognition continues to be developed for more products. Now, voice control is the next big thing in faucets.

In this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the public has heard of and witnessed the first voice-activated faucets from key industry players Delta and Kohler.

Delta’s latest innovation, the Wi-Fi-connected Touch2O, can be turned on and off easily by touching any part of the faucet. Convenience gets better for Delta has added an Amazon Alexa skill that lets the faucet “hear” voice instructions for on/off, water measurement and warming functions.

Kohler’s Sensate, meanwhile, is a handsfree smart faucet that also responds to voice commands for on/off and water flow. The fixture monitors and notifies for water use.

With voice-controlled faucets emerging from the big brands and gaining great attention, a lot of faucet manufacturers are likely already interested in the technology and planning to release their own versions in the near future. Expect voice recognition to go mainstream fast in ready-to-source faucets.
