Oras App makes adjusting Oras touchless faucets easy and fun.

Oras is constantly striving to develop innovative and advanced solutions to make the work of sanitary installers and building technicians as simple as possible.  Technology and digitalization are coming to homes in the form of new product features and applications that make professional’s work easier. With the new Oras App, it is now possible to quickly adjust the settings of the faucet to altered user requirements and to service them at the touch of a button.

Until now, making changes to factory setting of electronic faucets has been done manually by using a magnetic key and counting the number of blinking lights to determine the desired program for each faucet individually.  With the new app, not only can these adjustments be made more quickly without even touching the faucet, the installer has also access to more product information and settings than ever before.

"In the future, digitalization will also affect the work of professionals as products become more electronic: for example, the use and maintenance of faucets and showers can be controlled more and more by smart applications and phones," says Chief Technology Officer at Oras, Janne Rautavuori.  

The Oras App is initially compatible with three variants from the new Oras Electra line and the sensory-operated Oras Medipro Touchless variants. The user of the app can optimally tailor the functions of the electronic faucet to the individual preferences of the customer.

"The new application allows you to monitor water consumption, battery life, and the number of automatic rinse cycles. It also makes it possible to significantly reduce the time spent on changing faucet settings," Rautavuori continues.

In addition, this new B2B application facilitates and speeds up the maintenance reporting. Thanks to its built-in feature, reports such as product information and faucet settings can be sent directly via email.

"The new app is a natural part of the Oras brand and the first step towards the new types of mobile apps and advanced features for our various target groups," Rautavuori says.

How does it work?

To start monitoring and adjusting the faucets, the installer or technician first must activate the Bluetooth® connection on their mobile device. The installed Bluetooth compatible Oras products will be automatically found and registered by the app – within a range of up to ten meters.

Once the desired product has been selected, information about its individual settings appears on the display of the smartphone* or the tablet**.  Taking Oras Electra as an example, the display shows the amount of water consumed, the remaining battery life, the time until next automatic flush and a calendar feature for automatic flush, among other things.

With an authorized password access, installers and technicians can also e.g. program the water flow time, the intervals between and the duration of the automatic rinsing function, the sensor sensitivity and distance. In addition, not only is it possible to reset and create settings, one can also easily transfer them to other faucets– with just a few finger movements.

The Oras app can be downloaded for free as an iOS version on the App Store and as an Android version on the Google Play Store.
