Moen Arbor with MotionSense - a faucet with a brain


Have you ever heard something about germs that you knew you would never forget? For me it was an episode of Oprah where they took samples off of surfaces in one lady's home and found all sorts of horrible things. Maybe it made me a germ freak, but I often replay some of the episode in my head when I'm cleaning or cooking in the kitchen. When I'm opening a package of uncooked meat I get pretty serious about washing every part of my body and kitchen that might have touched the meat. Okay, so I'm starting to sound crazy, but there's a point here.
Let me introduce you to my new friend: the Moen Arbor with MotionSense faucet. You see, this faucet is pretty cool and helps me relax about my germ phobia. Why? Because it's super smart. I was nerdy-excited to review it. Let me show you why.

The faucet has three ways to turn it on. There are two different types of sensors and then the regular handle as well. The first sensor is on top. It's a "wave" sensor. You wave your hand above the faucet (no contact necessary) and it turns on.


It will stay on until you wave your hand above the sensor again. This sensor is perfect for when you have dirty hands. No need to touch anything. Sweet.


The second sensor is great for my kids. The faucet turns on when your hands are under it and then turns off when they aren't. I like this "ready" sensor because I know the kids won't leave the faucet on or let the water run too long.





The installation of the faucet was comparable to a regular install. I called my handsome handyman (a.k.a. my dad) to install it for me. The packaging on this baby was awesome - a spot for everything. The batteries for the sensor were also included. (You can install an AC adapter so that batteries wouldn't be needed.)


The boys have been practicing with our new "magic faucet." They might like it as much as I do.


The nozzle pulls out like a regular drop-down faucet...


...allowing you to clean the sink so easily.



And on top of it all, it's really pretty. I love Moen products and just purchased all Moen stuff for our bathroom renovation.

So, we're pretty happy with our new kitchen friend, Arbor with MotionSense. If you're interested, you can find more product details and where it's sold by clicking here.

this faucet would help simplify my life by allowing me to wash those large pots and pans because the head is moveable and flexible. it would also allow me to cook faster because i could wash things without having to put them down before turning on the faucet.

This would be so nice when I'm cutting meat (which I do a lot) and would help keep things a lot cleaner, plust there wouldn't be all the handles to clean around!

Sue said...

How cool! Love the idea that you dont have to touch it to turn it on :) My kids may actually want to help out in the kitchen if I had one of these :)

I love the wave sensor, especially when I am doing 10 things at 1 time & don't have a free hand.

As always with a 6 year old, messes are an every day occurrence. This would be so helpful by not to have sticky hands painted finger and even myself with raw foods handling the faucet. Keeping things free of germs would be a life saver! Maybe even literally! Thank you for the opportunity! :)

This faucet would cut down on the germs and bacteria that are always on the faucet handles. I clean and spray them with Lysol, but this faucet is a far better way.

This faucet would be wonderful. With two messy little boys and a faucet
that you didn’t have to touch, I’d save so much time. Muddy, greasy,
just plain dirty little fingerprints are always on my faucets.

This would make my life easier in cleaning. When I'm handling yucky things, I don't have to wash my hands, wash the faucet and then wash my hands again.

I agree - a "magic" faucet would be an awesome for a toddler like mine. She may be a girl, but she can sure make messes

This is something I would only have expected in a public place- now it is available for home use. It would simplify washing grandchildren's hands and cleaning off the faucet from grimy hands.

I paint, so I dislike touching beautiful, unpainted objects with paint. This will make me smile, if only because of the reduction in clean-up.
