Automatic and touchless faucets are prevalent in public places, and now more and more people are having them installed in their homes. Find out what’s behind the movement to smart faucets and whether they’re right for you.

Did you know that 80% of the most common infectious diseases are transmitted by touch? This is causing a health concern among workplaces, schools, hospitals and other public places, and many have turned to smart faucets because they improve hygiene and help beat the spread of germs.

 

Smart appliances are a growing trend

But smart faucets aren’t just for public places anymore. For the past several years, connected homes have been a growing trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Research shows that the smart home market is expected to grow by approximately 15% annually through 2023.[1] In other words, connected, smart home appliances and applications are exploding in popularity.

Eco-friendly without compromise

One of the biggest drivers toward smart appliances is their eco-friendliness. For example, you can save up to 50% of your annual water consumption by switching to smart faucets. You can also save energy on heated water. And you can do both without sacrificing comfort or convenience.

Think about the convenience of not having to touch the faucet lever when you’ve been working with raw meat or your hands are covered in sticky bread dough. Smart dishwasher valves are also available, which close automatically, decreasing the risk water of damage caused by an open valve. That’s comforting!

When safety comes first

Parents with small children are particularly interested in the safety aspect of smart faucets, but we all benefit from a reduced risk of hot-water burns. Smart faucets allow you 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 faucets. Designed to promote hygiene and safety, our faucets limit the spread of germs by 85% and reduce hot-water accidents because the small temperature control handle on the side of the faucet is harder for children to reach. Built with patented state-of-the-art sensors, they can be installed easily without help from an electrician, and they are easy to set up, use and adjust. Battery life lasts 3-5 years and battery changes are simple.

  • Automatic flushing – so you can ensure the right flow of water through your pipes when you’re away
  • Adjustment of sensor sensitivity – so you can decide exactly when your water should turn on
  • After flow time – so you can decide how long the water should continue once you’re finished
