Amazon’s Alexa spying tool now being installed on “smart” faucets and toilets that listen to all your conversations
By Ethan Huff // Sep 26, 2019

Delta and Kohler have both teamed up with Amazon to start installing Alexa "smart" surveillance systems inside their faucets and toilets (to keep close track of people's bodily functions?).


According to reports, Delta is introducing a line of faucets equipped with so-called "Voice IQ" technology, which allows users to command their plumbing appliances to heat up water, as one example, or fill up a pot.

Since it has the ability to be coupled with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, Voice IQ is a digital "helping hand," so to speak – but not that kind (at least not yet!) as far as your toilet goes. Even so, it's arguably just as invasive, as its "ears" are always listening in on your most private kitchen and bathroom moments – all in the name of "convenience" and "progress," of course.

An official advertisement for Delta's Voice IQ products depicts customers happily entertaining their friends and family members in their kitchens as they command their faucets to perform a variety of kitchen duties. It's all just fun and games, in other words, so no need to worry about privacy, right? Not exactly.

Delta's Voice IQ faucets are nothing more than wiretaps in people's kitchens. With the ability to listen in on everything that users say around them, Delta and Amazon will both now have intimate access to everything that goes on inside people's homes – for better or worse!

Even more disturbing is the voice-activated toilet that Kohler is introducing at the very same time. Known as "Numi 2.0," this "intelligent" toilet by Kohler comes equipped with Amazon Alexa "for easy voice control to activate toilet features as well as Alexa commands such as checking weather, traffic, accessing news, etc.," official company literature reveals.

Why anyone would want listening toilets inside their homes, no matter how "impressive" their voice-activated features, is beyond the pale of anything considered normal or rational. But there's apparently a segment of the population that's willing to pay to have Big Brother installed inside their "throne" rooms.

Kohler is apparently so convinced that people are just going to love their Numi 2.0 Amazon Alexa toilets that the company even invested in a Kohler Konnect smartphone app that allows customers with listening toilets to "personalize" their experiences with them.

"Use the Kohler Konnect app to program personalized presets for different users," company literature further explains. "There is probably a difference between you, your spouse, and your children when it comes to your interaction with Numi 2.0; this lets you easily personalize your experience."

It's difficult to imagine how much more invasive consumer spying technology can get, save for installing it directly into people's bodies. But the fact that two of the largest kitchen and bath appliance manufacturers in the world are partnering with the world's shadiest retail tech platform speaks volumes as to where we are in the timeline of our collective privacy rights being completely abolished as part of the imminent new world order.

"Back in the early '70s when I was in high school we had to read Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World," wrote one commenter in response to this news. "These were basically two completely different versions of the 'surveillance state' that the future would hold for us."

"Back then we all thought that 1984 was the eventual outcome: that the death of liberty would be forced upon us at the hands of government," this same commenter went on to add. "We were quite mistaken. Huxley was right: we are gleefully inviting our demise into our own homes and paying for it. We're building our own pods in The Matrix. And almost no one cares; even when you point this out."
