The most private room in the house may not be so private anymore. At CES
2018, Kohler announced a line of connected kitchen and bath products called
Kohler Konnect, all of which work with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple
HomeKit for Siri.

The star of the lineup is Kohler's Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror, which has microphones, speakers, and Amazon Alexa built in so it can answer questions
("What's the weather today?"), adjust its lights by voice ("Turn on shaving mode"), and control other compatible devices around the house, including
Kohler's other connected products -- no separate smart speaker required.

Kohler is just one of many manufacturers showing off products with Alexa or
Google Assistant baked right in. Other brands include iDevices, First Alert, and GE Lighting.


Didn't Orwell's 1984 predict that mirror?
