Smart touchless faucets aren’t just for public places anymore. Find out what’s behind the movement to touchless faucets and why they may be smart for your customers.

 

For the past several years, connected homes have been a growing trend with no signs of slowing down. Research shows that the smart home market is expected to grow by approximately 11% annually through 2025.[1] In other words, Bluetooth connected, smart home appliances and applications are exploding in popularity.

 

Consumers want to save water and improve safety

One of the biggest drivers toward smart appliances is their eco-friendliness. For example, consumers can save up to 50% of their annual water consumption by switching to smart faucets. They can also save energy on heated water.

Parents with small children are particularly interested in the safety aspect of smart faucets. They allow the customer to pre-set the temperature to the right level and prevent kids from accidentally turning the water too hot.

The first smart faucets on the market

Oras manufactured the first touchless faucet more than 30 years ago. Today our smart, Bluetooth-connected faucets are leading the pack. Designed to promote hygiene and safety, our smart faucets limit the spread of germs by 85% and some models can reduce hot-water accidents through automatic temperature control.

Oras smart faucets use our panted PSD (Position Sensitive Detector) technology, which ensures that the faucet responds precisely to hand movements. They also have unique two-sensor lenses in each faucet, so they never have any problem detecting when to turn on or off. This results in smoother usability compared to IR (infrared sensor) technology.

 

Smart faucets are easy to install

Our smart faucets can replace any manual faucet and can easily be installed. Battery operated versions need no help from an electrician. They are easy to set up, use and adjust. Lithium batteries come in a small case which fits neatly under the sink. They last 3-5 years and changes are simple to change. Mains operated versions will need an electrical outlet nearby and may require some assistance from an electrician. It is possible to change the power supply at any time, even after installation.

Easy maintenance and control

Most of our smart faucets can be controlled using the Oras App based on Bluetooth technology. The app provides a wide range of features and functions for monitoring and controlling your faucet, including:

  • Automatic flushing – lets your customers keep water flowing when they’re away, and prevent bacteria like legionella from forming in the pipes
  • Adjustment of sensor sensitivity and sensor area – lets your customers control how close users need to be to the faucet before it turns on
  • After flow time – lets customers decide how long the water should continue once they’ve finished
  • Battery level – lets customers know when it’s time to swap batteries

Smart faucets are a big success amongst our customers – 99% of customers are satisfied.
