Moen Expands Line of Touchless Faucet Technology – Introducing MotionSense Wave™

Oakville, Ontario… Imagine the convenience of having a kitchen faucet turn water on or off, without a touch. A fixture that does the work for you when your hands are too full or too messy to turn on the faucet. One that helps minimize the spread of dirt and germs, since there’s no need to touch it to start the water flow. Imagination – meet MotionSense Wave.

Known for its thoughtfully designed products, Moen has expanded its popular MotionSense line to include MotionSense Wave. Faucets with this touchless technology feature a single sensor on the faucet base that provides hands-free control, so users can turn water on and off with just the wave of a hand.

The faucets can be controlled in two ways:

  • The Wave Sensor, on the left side of the faucet base, turns water on or off with the wave of a hand, for easy, instant motion-activated control.
  • 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.”



  • Align® Spring faucet: A pulldown fixture with a look fit for an industrial kitchen, but with the reach and flexibility required for residential use. Available in Chrome and Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist Stainless finish, which resists fingerprints and water spots to maintain the fixture’s brilliance.
  • Arbor® pulldown faucet: The faucet handle’s slight flare and the spout’s curve create a transitional look that works with a variety of decorating styles. Finishes include Chrome, Spot Resist Stainless and Oil Rubbed Bronze.
  • Sleek pulldown faucet: Provides clean, cylindrical modern design and thoughtful innovations to make cleanup a breeze. Find it in Chrome and Spot Resist Stainless finishes.
  • Essie pulldown faucet: Offers graceful curves and elegance, as well as a single-handle lever to easily adjust water temperature and flow. Featured in Spot Resist Stainless, with Chrome and Mediterranean Bronze finishes offered online.
