Luxury Ascends to the Throne

by Allison Jaffe 09/29/2019

Home improvement has reached new technological heights with the introduction of the Numi 2.0 intelligent toilet from Kohler. The Consumer Electronics Show recently held in Las Vegas, Nevada, saw the debut of the trapezoidal-shaped unit under the control of Amazon Alexa. When offered such a staggering variety of personalization choices, some folks might never leave the bathroom.

Mood setting

Not content to merely flush away waste, the Numi 2.0 connects via Bluetooth® to sync your favorite music into your early morning experience. If relaxing on the throne is your ideal, Numi 2.0's got your err … backside. On the other hand, if you prefer productivity during your morning go, the embedded Alexa will check traffic, weather, stock prices, or breaking news for you. Ask Alexa to access your personalized playlists to make your experience truly personal.

Set your environment with Numi 2.0’s mood lighting too. Choose from a solid glow surrounding the base and back panel to dynamic light changes progressing from color to color. And don’t forget temperature control. The Numi 2.0’s heated seat also responds to Alexa so no more shivering on cold winter mornings, while the lid raises and closes on your command.

Best of all, the Kohler app, called KOHLER Konnect®, lets you personalize your experience and preset it for you and other users so that upon your return, your voice brings you (or your family member's) preferences back to life. Download your KOHLER Konnect® app from the App Store or get it on Google Play.

Easy-peasy cleaning

Not just for the going functions, the Numi 2.0 changes the cleaning experience as well. With warm-water cleansing and adjustable water pressure, spray, and temperature options, the toilet’s self-cleaning wand, precision air dryer, and deodorizing filter practically do all the work for you.

The little extras

  • Eco-friendly dual-flush gives you a choice of either 0.6 gallons or 1.28 gallons per each flush.
  • Motion-activated and touch-free opening and closing of both the lid and the seat provide hands-free operation.
  • Chair-height seating offers ease of sitting and standing.
  • Another economy option is the power saving option that detects usage and changes the settings of the heated seat to save you energy.
  • Support in emergency power outages with up to 100 flushes.
  • Best of all, it fits into standard plumbing with only the addition of power access.

If you want to add some luxury to your lifestyle, this $7,000 (for white) or $8,000 (for black) toilet suits your needs. In high-end housing, a fantastic specialty product like this one can be a difference-maker. Talk to your luxury real estate professional about how it can increase your home's value.

During more than 14 years as an independent broker, Allison has managed all manner of residential real estate sales – single and multi-family houses, condos, co-ops, and mixed-use -- from upper Manhattan, throughout the Bronx and Queens, across Westchester to Putnam and Rockland Counties. Allison specializes as a Sellers Agent, Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Estate Properties Agent, and a Certified Buyer Representative (CBR). Please see our menu of Client Services to learn more about each of these focused areas of real estate expertise.

"I determined early in my real estate career to focus on the specific needs of my respective clients rather than a specific geographic area. My job isn’t to sell buyers on a town or school district – they know where they want to live – my job is to sell the one property in that location that my client has to sell. My buyer clients want options and having lived and worked in Westchester, Rockland, the Bronx, and Manhattan, I know where to find those options.”
