Moen Introduces a Hands-Free Faucet that Actually Works


Hands-free faucets usually exude a kind of Jetson-Family flair—when they work—even though the technology is not new and not all that exciting at this point (almost like a cell phone). It hasn’t stopped manufacturers from trying to perfect the technology. The latest is Moen whose new introduction, MotionSense, uses advanced sensors to detect movement in two zones. You can use the faucet in three ways: waving a hand above the spout starts and stops the water flow; the Ready Sensor near the base of the faucet identifies when an object—like a cup or your hand—is placed beneath the spout and runs for as long as that item remains in range and automatically shuts off the flow when the object is removed from the sensing zone; and the handle on the side of the faucet operates in the traditional manner. The unit uses six standard AA batteries or an optional AC power adapter. www.moen.com/motionsense.
