Wave On, Wave Off with Moen’s Expanded Touchless Technology, MotionSense Wave™

Oakville, Ontario… Imagine the convenience of having a kitchen faucet turn water on or off, without a touch. Moen, a company known for its thoughtfully designed products, has expanded its popular MotionSense line to include MotionSense Wave. Faucets with this touchless technology feature a single-sensor hands-free activation, allowing users to easily turn water on and off with the wave of a hand.

Faucets equipped with MotionSense Wave technology are perfect for when your hands are too full or too messy to turn on the faucet. This functionality also helps to minimize the spread of dirt and germs, since there’s no need to touch the faucet to start the flow of water.

The faucets can be controlled in two ways: 

  • The Wave Sensor, on the left side of the base of the faucet, turns water on or off with the wave of a hand.
  • The handle on the opposite side of the faucet offers manual operation, letting users adjust flow and temperature.

“From cleaning up after a family finger-painting session to washing a delicious – but sticky – bite of peanut butter and jelly sandwich from your hands, faucets with MotionSense Wave provide hands-free convenience when you need it most,” said Garry Scott, vice president, marketing and eCommerce, Moen Canada. “This touchless technology is intuitively simple and designed to improve the whole family’s experience at the sink.”

Moen’s MotionSense Wave technology is offered on the Essie pulldown kitchen faucets, which feature a graceful transitional style. Essie’s single-handle lever makes adjusting water temperature and flow simple, while the high-arc spout easily accommodates large pitchers and containers. The three-function wand offers both an aerated stream for everyday cleaning and a powerful rinse for heavy-duty tasks. In addition, the faucet also features a pause function to stop water flow from the spray head as needed, as well as Moen’s Power Clean spray technology for greater force to get tough jobs done.

For added functionality, the faucet is equipped with Moen’s innovative Reflex® system, offering a spray wand designed to put itself away. Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist finish keeps a cleaner looking appearance, with additional finishes, Chrome and Mediterranean Bronze, available online.

To accommodate varying user preferences, the faucet offers an optional deck plate and matching soap dispenser. Essie can be installed in a choice of one-, two-, three- or four-hole mounting applications. Essie also features Moen’s Duralock® Quick-Connect System for easy installation. Its proprietary, push-button connector features a telltale “click” to audibly signal a secure connection.

MotionSense Wave Technology

Featuring a Wave Sensor on the left side of the faucet base, faucets with MotionSense Wave technology turn water on or off with just the wave of a hand. Faucets equipped with MotionSense Wave technology are perfect for when your hands are too full or too messy to turn on the faucet. This functionality also helps to minimize the spread of dirt and germs, since there’s no need to touch the faucet to start the flow of water.

Power Clean technology provides 50 percent more spray power versus most Moen pulldown and pullout faucets without the Power Clean technology, while containing splashing and minimizing mess.
