LAS VEGAS (AP) — The CES gadget show will showcase internet-connected "smarts" creeping into cars, refrigerators, thermostats and just about everything else in your home.

That includes an oven that coordinates your recipes and a toilet that flushes with a voice command.

With every additional smart device in your home, companies are able to gather more details about your daily life.

Companies say they are building these products not for snooping but for convenience.

The CES show opens Tuesday.
