Hands-free technology has taken off in residential kitchens. Hands-free faucets (also known as touchless faucets, electronic faucets, or motion-sensing faucets) continue to evolve and gain popularity in homes. While the technology is not new (think public bathrooms), improvements with sensors and wiring have made the faucets indispensable in a busy kitchen.
The faucet is one of the most used tools in the kitchen and touchless technology has made it even better and more effective. With a tap of a finger, forearm or wrist, the flow of water is activated, helping to get work done faster while minimizing mess and germs. Major brands lead the way, offering different designs and features, but the same great convenience.
Kohler’s Sensate kitchen faucet takes touchless to a whole new level of convenience with response technology, featuring a state-of-the-art sensor that responds in 20 milliseconds.
Moen’s MotionSense faucets feature two sensors to set water in motion — a ready sensor at the base for quick tasks and a wave sensor at the top of the spout.
