Sensomatic

Isn't that fun to say?  Maybe it's just me....

Can you tell in this picture what's different from other faucets?


It's a touchless/hands free faucet, pretty cool huh?!

They are headed to the home market for your kitchen and bathrooms.  They do have some benefits.....

*Less touching means better hygiene
*They stay cleaner
*Reduces water and energy
*Helps people with limited dexterity or for kids
*Preset temperature that can be adjusted
*Handles are an option if space is a concern


The new ones for homes aren't like the finicky ones that drive me crazy at let's say the airport. Manufacturers are creating them now with more reliable sensing technologies that don't feature an infrared beam so they are more attractive for your homes.  The entire faucet acts as a magnetic field so as you move your hand towards the faucet it will activate the water.  Most have handles so it's an option to turn on your water.


I don't have one nor have I put any in my clients homes, but who knows, they are starting to look better and better.....Lots of finishes, and styles too....What do you think, would you ever consider one?

Oh by the way, I am sooo excited my camera is back and ready...Now I need to get some "afters" taken of my clients homes to post, stay tuned.....

I was wondering about that fact that they only seem to work when they want to in public places. Almost like they are saying "you got enough water"! Wonder how the pricing will be though.

I want one. Our landlord won't let us do anything to our place. Boring boring and unhygienic. we're dealing with a round of C.difficile in our 1 year old right now and everyone is washing their hands non-stop. I'm following behind washing the knobs. *sigh* It's a never ending battle against germs and bacteria when you have kids.

Aaw, now why didn't I know about these stylish versions when I did my bathroom remodel?!

I just found your blog and I'm loving it so far! :)

I have had an opportunity to use a few of these.
I think is a great invention!! Much better than the versions in public areas!!

I have another exciting thought....our kitties could get their own drink of fresh water! What a concept! :)
If they are better than the ones in the public restrooms I'm there! I agree with Kathy -- they turn off and you still have soap all over, ugg!!

Those are beautiful! I'll love to redo the faucets in our bathroom to something like that. Would keep more soap and scum off the handles...

I have a friend with a hands-free faucet in her kitchen and it's the best. It is actually operated by a foot pedal and was designed for the handicapped which isn't the case in this household. Everyone loves it and wants one too. Have a nice Easter. Rosemary

Interesting concept for at-home living. And I like Anon's idea about the kitty kats. Although I'm not sure if mine could figure that out! SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did...
