Kohler’s Sensate Touchless Kitchen Faucet has been named a CES 2019 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree.

Regarded at the top of its game in the smart home category at the CES Innovation Awards this year, the Sensate Touchless Kitchen Faucet with KOHLER Konnect allows users to not only turn the tap on or off but also dispenses measured amounts of water through voice commands or motion-based interactions.

Just say the word and you can control the faucet from the other side of the room to fill a pasta pot or the sink. You can even customise filling for frequently used items.

It can also dispense just the right amount of water for a recipe, eliminating the need for measuring cups. This is done through a sensor on the faucet valve which monitors the usage and displays it on the KOHLER Konnect app.

Must-have water-efficient products for your home

And for those suborn messes, it has a two-function pull-down sprayhead, allowing you to switch from stream to Sweep™ spray which creates a wide, forceful blade of water.

Scheduled to be available in Q1 2019 at a price of $660 to $830, the Sensate will come in Polished Chrome, Vibrant® Stainless or Oil-Rubbed Bronze finishes. You can sign up online to be notified when it comes to market. At the moment, Sensate is available in the UK without voice command.
