Moen Continues to Make Kitchens Smarter with MotionSense Wave™ Touchless Technology Expansion

Oakville, Ontario… Consumers shouldn’t have to sacrifice great style in order to get the best functionality when it comes to their kitchen faucet. To help provide the best of both worlds, Moen is expanding its popular and easy-to-use MotionSense Wave technology to include the Brantford® and Arlo kitchen faucet collections.

Faucets with MotionSense Wave 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 – perfect for when hands are too full or too messy to touch the handle. Moen faucets with MotionSense Wave also can help prevent the spread of dirt and germs, since there’s no need to touch it to start water flow.

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.

“By expanding the MotionSense Wave collection of products we’re able to allow more consumers to elevate their experience at the sink through both great style and innovation,” said Garry Scott, vice president, marketing and eCommerce, Moen Canada. “This touchless technology is intuitively simple and designed to provide hands-free convenience when you need it most.”


  • New! Arlopulldown faucet: With a delicately curved handle and uniquely sculpted base, the Arlo pulldown kitchen faucet adds eye-catching appeal to transitional kitchen designs. It’s available in Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist Stainless finish, which resists fingerprints and water spots to maintain the fixture’s brilliance, and can be found at select retailers.
  • New! Brantford® pulldown faucet: A classic design that will leave any kitchen looking timeless for years to come, Brantford comes in Chrome, Oil Rubbed Bronze and Spot Resist Stainless finishes. It’s available at wholesale plumbing showrooms and online.

  • 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. Available at wholesale plumbing showrooms and online.
  • Sleek pulldown faucet: Clean, cylindrical modern design and thoughtful innovations make cleanup a breeze with this faucet. Find it in Chrome and Spot Resist Stainless finishes at wholesale plumbing showrooms and online.
