Moen Introduces MotionSense(TM): A Uniquely Responsive,
User-Friendly, Hands-Free Kitchen Faucet Experience 
OAKVILLE, ON -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 --  Imagine the convenience
of having a kitchen faucet that senses what you're trying to
accomplish and, without you even touching the faucet, immediately
responds to your needs. MotionSense(TM) from Moen utilizes advanced
sensors to detect movement in two sensing zones, setting water flow
in motion. With MotionSense, tasks like washing dishes, filling a
glass of water and preparing the evening meal are simplified. It's
like having a second set of hands in the kitchen -- perfect for when
your hands are too full or too dirty to turn on the faucet. 
"MotionSense was created to respond directly to consumers' behaviours
and preferences in the kitchen," said Jack Suvak, senior director of
research and insights, Moen. "With the wave of a hand or by placing a
cup beneath the spout, you experience a faucet that intuitively
understands exactly what you are trying to do, and responds
immediately to your needs." 
Learning how to use MotionSense is as simple as it is innovative.
Faucets with MotionSense can be controlled in three unique ways:  

--  The Wave Sensor at the top of the faucet starts and stops the water
    flow with a simple hand movement above the faucet.
--  The Ready Sensor near the base of the faucet identifies when an object
    -- like a cup or your hand -- is placed beneath the spout. It runs
    water for as long as that item remains in range and automatically
    shuts the flow off as soon as the object is removed from the sensing
--  The handle on the side of the faucet offers familiar, manual
    operation, letting users adjust flow and temperature.

The versatile sensor control offered by MotionSense makes it
surprisingly easy to accomplish a variety of routine tasks with speed
and efficiency. Plus, the hands-free technology virtually eliminates
the need to touch the faucet, reducing the spread of germs.  
Another benefit of MotionSense is the opportunity to save water in
the kitchen. The Ready Sensor will automatically supply water only
when an object or hands are within the sensing zone -- eliminating
the possibility of leaving the faucet running when not in use.  
MotionSense is powered by a battery pack that utilizes six standard
AA batteries or an optional AC power adapter. An LED light provides
visual feedback, indicating when the faucet turns on or off; or if
the faucet should run low on batteries -- typically, after
approximately 12 months of use. Kitchen faucets with MotionSense are
surprisingly straightforward to install, having very few components
and no complex sub-assemblies, saving time during the installation
process. The battery pack is housed conveniently under the sink, for
easy access and quick replacement. A special valve design fully
supports manual and digital modes, meaning the hands-free feature
works any time -- even when the handle is in the "off" position. It
also means that the faucet will always function in manual mode --
even if it loses power.  
The Arbor(R) pulldown kitchen faucet is the first Moen(R) faucet to
offer MotionSense. This transitionally styled faucet is the ideal
complement to virtually any kitchen decor. The Arbor pulldown kitchen
faucet with MotionSense is available in Chrome, Oil Rubbed Bronze and
new Spot Resist(TM) Stainless finish, which will resist potential
water spots, as well as any fingerprints, should you choose to
operate it as a manual faucet. The Arbor faucet with MotionSense also
features the Moen Reflex(R) system, which improves overall hose and
sprayer operation for an experience that is truly user friendly.  
"Arbor with MotionSense provides convenience on command," Suvak
continued. "Every aspect of this faucet -- from the range and timing
of the sensors, to the ease of replacing batteries -- has been
thoughtfully designed to provide you with the best combination of
intelligent, yet simple-to-use technology." 
The Arbor kitchen faucet with MotionSense is backed by a five-year
warranty for all electronics, plus a Limited Lifetime Warranty for
all finishes and mechanical components.
