Smart soap Amazon
Amazon launched a smart soap dispenser, its name Smart soap Amazon and besides its rather unoriginal name, it should be admitted that it is, to put it mildly, curious. Not because it’s capable of dispensing soap without touching it, many others have done it already, and you can even build it yourself with a Raspberry Pi, but because they offer Alexa compatibility as well.
Yes, the idea is that you can use it along with various leisure options and procedures that offers the company’s voice assistant. Of course, before telling how you can do all this, it’s better to look at what the product itself is like. We expect there aren’t many mysteries in it, although there are some other interesting details.
Physically, it does not break molds and is very similar to any other soap dispenser or bottle that may already be on the market, be it “dumb” or “smart”. Dimensions are something that can change along with some other details. Here, for example, if it is higher, this is because at the top is all the electronics that give it life, from a battery with an autonomy of up to three months to a pump and some other elements, such as various LEDs.
These LEDs at the top serve as an indicator not only when the device is charging or the battery is low, but also when you are washing, some are round in shape. countdown rubbing your hands together for at least 20 seconds recommended for effective cleaning.
In addition to this, some interesting details also lie in the ability of the sensor that activates the dispenser to measure the distance between the hole and the user’s hand. Thus, according to the three set levels, you can dispense three different amounts of soap.
Of course, along with all this, there is the issue of integration with Alexa, but for what exactly. Well, let’s see, first you need to know that to work with a voice assistant, it it is necessary that he be paired with Amazon Echo and that it is within nine meters.
Once both devices are connected, the idea is that the dispenser serves as a launcher for routines and other Alexa-related activities. How? Well, when the sensor detects the user’s hand, it not only dispenses the soap, but also triggers the set procedure. And this is where the user’s imagination comes in.
For example, you can program routines that will play a song that will summarize the highlighted news of the day for you, that will give you a new word or other information during the recommended time for handwashing. You can even use it to trigger other more complex actions by combining different connected devices.
How Much Does a Smart Soap Dispenser Cost Amazon?
Now, the least attractive part of the product: the price. This is a smart soap Amazon costs 55 dollars. When the price of other existing automatic dispensers is taken into account, the investment is small or not attractive at all.
However, this is a product for users who are very passionate about home automation, using Alexa and its routines, etc. And of course, spending that money is not a problem for you. Because it’s a little bit, but it’s about a soap dispenser. At the moment it is only available on Amazon in USA.
