Imagine the convenience of having a kitchen faucet that can sense what you’re trying to accomplish and respond to what you need, the moment you need it. MotionSense makes it happen. With MotionSense, users can control the faucet in three ways – including the handle and two sensors that eliminate the need to touch the faucet at all. A simple hand movement near the Wave or Ready sensor activates water flow and sets things in motion. This versatile, hands-free control makes it surprisingly easy to accomplish a variety of routine tasks with speed and efficiency. Plus, it helps you prevent the spread of dirt and germs in your kitchen so there are fewer chances for cross-contamination. Efficient operation even includes water savings because the MotionSense’s lower sensor will automatically supply water only when the user’s hands or an object are directly below the spout. No one will ever need to let the faucet run unnecessarily again. MotionSense is powered by a battery pack or optional AC power adapter that is as straightforward to install as a standard kitchen faucet. Intelligent, yet intuitively simple, Moen’s MotionSense was fine-tuned after extensive consumer behavior research. It’s another in a long list of Moen innovations that are designed to delight.

We’re huge fans of the Moen MotionSense here at and, not only for its elegant design and convenience, but also for its earth-friendly sensibility. Sensor faucets help you conserve water and time by allowing you to turn the faucet off and on with a wave of your hand. If you’ve ever struggled to turn your tap on and off while washing dishes, lathering your hands with soap, or holding a pot with both hands and thought “what a waste” seeing water go down the drain, you’ll understand why sensor faucets are so convenient and environmentally-friendly. MotionSense makes doing dishes extra convenient by employing two hands-free sensors on their faucets: the Wave sensor on the top of the faucet, and the Ready sensor near the spout. Of course, you can also turn MotionSense faucets on the old-fashioned way too, but we’re pretty sure that once you get used to hands-free, you’ll never go back.
