As families all over the world focus on hand-washing and hygiene, the benefits of touchless faucets are becoming clearer. Avoiding contact with the faucet helps avoid contact with the germs that are collecting on this high-traffic touchpoint. This keeps hands cleaner and families healthier.

 

 

 

But many homeowners have only experienced touchless faucets in public places – and may be unaware of how easy they are to own and maintain. Read these five myths about touchless faucets and find out how they can save water and make life in your kitchen and bathroom even better.

Myth #1: Touchless faucets require frequent battery changes

Smart faucets require lithium batteries which last 3 to 5 years. A blinking red light on Oras touchless faucets lets you know when it’s time for a battery change, which you can easily do yourself within minutes. You can check the battery life status in the Oras App, which comes with touchless faucets. Information about batteries is also included in the faucet guide and, and you can always get in touch with customer service if you need help.

Myth #2: The temperature cannot be adjusted on touchless faucets

Some touchless models are available without temperature control – these are specifically for public places. However, many Oras smart faucets have a small lever on the side that allows for easy temperature adjustments.

Myth #3: Touchless faucets are only for public places

More and more schools, daycares and offices are installing smart faucets, not only because they promote hygiene but also because they reduce water consumption and save energy used for warm water. This is creating demand for private home use as well. Oras offer a wide range of smart faucets, in a variety of attractive designs, that are easy to install and perfect for home use.

Myth #4: Touchless faucets are expensive

Smart faucets are available in a wide range of prices – some starting at just a few hundred euros. Considering the money you can save from reducing your water and energy consumption, the faucet pays for itself after only a short while.

 

Myth #5: Touchless faucets often have sensor malfunctions

Our patented PSD (Position Sensitive Detector) technology in the sensor ensures that the faucet responds exactly to your hand movements. The sensor reliably detects the position of your hands, regardless of how dirty they are or whether the lights are on. You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensors via the Oras App, and if the sensor’s battery dies, it can easily be replaced. (See myth #1.)
