Smart Home: This clever pitcher fills hands-free1:13 /
FirstBuild's Smart Pitcher automatically fills for a steady supply of cold, filtered water.
[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET, here again at the First Look Facility in Ruralville Kentucky with the smart pitcher, basically, it takes a regular pitcher, add some smartsensing technology and makes it a lot easier for you to fill up your pitcher. So this pitcher is outfitted with two magnets and the dispenser kit inside is outfitted with two read switches. The first read switch comes in contact with the magnetic and lets you know the pitcher is there. The second read switch is built on a float, so as the water fills up, it comes into contact with the read switch and tells it to stop the water. And there you have an auto fill pitcher built into your refrigerator. First Fill will be selling these pitcher kits. On their website that you can fit to your refrigerator. But it's only gonna be available right now on one refrigerator model. You will also have the option of buying a refrigerator with the kit already built in. And this is definitely something that's geared around the maker movement. Something for someone who really likes DIY. You have to drill a hole into the back of the fridge. But that's the extent of the installation process. So it's pretty simple. And if you're interested in kind of an entry level DIY that has a pretty practical application, I think this might be an interesting way to start. [MUSIC]
