Kitchen faucets with proximity and motion sensors make the operation totally hands-free. Such faucets are always called as touchless kitchen faucets. They normally come with handle with which you set the required pressure and temperature of the water. When this is done, you don’t have to touch the faucet anymore practically. It will turn off and on at a wave of the hand.
But what is the need of touchless faucet in the kitchen? What is the practical advantage of it?
Higher hygiene standard is one of the benefits. Touchless kitchen faucet removes the need of touching contaminating metal potentially while preparing food. The exact way of activation may differ depending on the model. All you do is move your hand near to the sensor, and you will see the water running. You can turn it off with the same gesture.
It also saves water and time as it is so quick and easy to wave your hand when you need water and turn it off when you don’t need it.
Kids will learn to help themselves to get a glass of water. They will not leave the water on since it is fun and easy to turn the water off. Even if they forget to turn it off, it will turn off on its own after a few minutes. A good touchless kitchen faucet comes with an inbuilt security system which will take care of everything.
Some of the models come with effective pull-down feature and very good precision magnetic spray. The sprayers will have two modes normally- stream and spray. The touchless function needs electric power. Majority of the faucets will connect with power through an adapter. Some models come with batteries as well.
