4 Brand New Smart Home & Apartment Technologies From CES

Every year around the beginning of January one of my favorite trade shows happens–CES. This trade show is the home to introducing all kinds of new and prototyped technology to the world and is known by Forbes as foretelling some of the most seismic shifts in the recent history of technology. So…it’s kind of a big deal. 

As this conference comes and goes, the obvious parts I pay attention to are new smart home and apartment technology. Here are just a few I am most excited about:

Kohler PerfectFill

PerfectFill is a smart bathing experience where users can fill, adjust and drain a bathtub to specific settings from an app. While smart fill bathtubs have existed, the introduction of a combo fill and drain is new. 

Available in 2022

There are many more cool technologies released this year at CES and I wish I could write a full blog about every single one of them. Hopefully these 4 will encourage you to do some more research! Here is a list of the exhibitors and categories to get you started!
