There are many things that will confuse people in 2019 but become meaningful in 2021. In the past year, words such as isolation, social distancing and drug use have taken up the vocabulary, and it is completely normal to wear a mask outside the operating room. Therefore, it is not surprising that Amazon's latest smart device is not a robot TV or heart reader earplugs, but an automatic soap dispenser.
Yes, Amazon is selling a smart soap dispenser that sprays soap when it detects a hand under the non-contact nozzle. It will draw three different amounts of soap based on where you place your handle. The closer you are to the nozzle, the less soap will be sprayed, and vice versa.
In addition to hands-free soap extraction, the device also includes a 20-second LED timer to count down the correct hand-washing time recommended by the CDC. It is also compatible with Alexa devices, so if you have an Echo Dot or Echo Show, you can create an Alexa Routine to wash your hands. This allows you to hear part of the song, listen to jokes, or understand the facts while scrubbing. Fair warning: the soap dispenser itself does not include a speaker.
The wireless soap dispenser runs on rechargeable batteries and can last up to three months on a single charge, so you don’t need to worry about replacing disposable batteries and finding space for wires in the bathroom or kitchen. This compact device is only 6.1 inches high and 3.65 inches wide. It does not take up much space and can store 12 ounces of soap. Place one next to the kitchen or bathroom sink for a high-tech hand washing experience.
At $55, it is definitely more expensive than other automatic soap dispensers, but because of the built-in timer and Alexa compatibility, it has features that many people don't have. When you are looking for ways to make your home and daily life cleaner, please consider pre-ordering Amazon's new smart soap dispenser today before the official launch on August 4, 2021. If it is released like other Amazon smart devices, it will surely be sold out soon.
