Kitchen & Bath Business - September 2020 - 21

RIGHT TASK LIGHTING has

launched the Tandem LED
and WAV Smart Control
product lines. Tandem LED is
a tunable white LED lighting
technology that adjusts LED
lights from Warm White 2700K
to Daylight White 5000K and
all white color temperatures in
between. With the new WAV
Smart Control system, the
user can control the lights via
a smart phone app or voice
command. The MSRP of
the kit with 16 feet of tunable
lighting is $411.76. www.

In the kitchen, touchless or voice-activated
faucets allow the user to interact with the faucet
without ever touching it. These smart faucets can
perform actions like fill a glass to a certain amount,
turn on for the recommended time of 20 seconds
for washing hands or simply switch on when the
user does not want to touch the handle. This can
prevent the spread of contaminants from food
like raw meats or eggs. In the bathroom, touchless products make normally germ-infested areas
- like a toilet - cleaner and simpler to maintain.
"Products that offer an enhanced level of cleanliness and hygiene can create a more calming, worry-free routine," said Jonathan Bradley, product
manager, smart home, Kohler Co."Materials that
are easy to clean like skirted toilets, products that
offer personal hygiene features like bidets and
contactless experiences such as touchless faucets
are already starting to take a lead in the conversation in this space."
HOW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
IS IMPACTING APPLIANCES

Cooking at home is the main source of meals for
most homeowners today, which leaves many worrying about the state of their appliances and what
happens if something goes wrong.
"We have seen more people anxious that their
appliances will have an error during COVID-19,"
said Taryn Brucia, PR director at LG Electronics

TRESCO LIGHTING's new

Wireless Door Sensors
automatically turn lights
on when a door is opened.
They can be mounted to the
bottom or side of a cabinet
frame, then synced with
the push of a button to the
receiver without the hassle
or mess of running wires.
Sensors are available in
black or nickel (pictured).
MSRP is $61.05.

RIGHT The HUNTER DOUGLAS

Silhouette Window Shadings
with PowerView Automation
include S-shaped vanes
that float between two sheer
panels, diffusing sunlight into
the room when open and providing privacy when closed.
Shown here is the Silhouette
Window Shading in Alustra
French Linen in soft white.
PowerView Automation starts
at $299 per shade - depending on the shade style - and
the PowerView Hub is $285.

ECOPOWER faucets create
their own electricity every time
water spins their small internal
turbine. Because the faucets
generate their own energy,
they continue to operate without interruption if electricity is
lost. They flow at 0.09 gallons
per 10-second cycle, which
is 64 percent below the 0.25
gpc baseline set by the federal
government for high-efficiency
faucets. Price is available upon
request. www.toto.com

Inc. "This is an inevitable fear given the fact that
the consumer is spending more time than ever
relying on their appliances during quarantine."
Consumers want their appliances to perform
optimally and work harder to provide the meals
they may have been used to getting from restaurants. The little issues with appliances - like an
inaccurate oven temperature or a gas burner that
never turns on - become a much bigger nuisance
when a user relies heavily on that appliance.While
remote diagnosis is a reality already for many
kitchen appliances, manufacturers are also hoping to provide contactless repair in the near future.
"Products will not remain the way they were
the day you purchased them. They will enhance
over time, and enhanced analytics will help tailor
them to your specific needs - making them even
smarter," said Shawn Stover, executive director of
SmartHome Solutions, GE Appliances, adding
that artificial intelligence (AI) is the key to providing appliances with remote service soon.
Appliances with AI are also helping homeowners who might be learning to cook for the
first time. Many smart appliances today come
with integrated recipes to walk a user through
cooking and can monitor the meal for appropriate
doneness. AI can also learn about any dietary restrictions or preferences and help consumers find
healthier meals to cook at home - making good
choices more accessible to homeowners.

GROHE's LadyLux
SmartControl Pull-Out
Single-Spray Kitchen
Faucet allows users to
control water flow with
a simple touch from the
wrist, forearm or back of
the hand. The faucet also
has a SpeedClean system
to remove limescale with a
simple swipe, as well as a
Starlight finish for scratchand tarnish-resistant
surfaces. MSRP starts at
$799. www.grohe.us

LG's InstaView Refrigerator

with Craft Ice has a slowmelting round ice maker that
automatically makes batches of three or six ice spheres
per day without the work
of molds. The refrigerator
now comes equipped with
Proactive Customer Care,
which is activated with the
ThinQ app and connected
with the smart appliance
to give maintenance tips
and usage reports. MSRP
is $3,399. www.lg.com/us/
