Smart Faucets Decision-Making Factors

Ways To Operate

When considering buying a smart kitchen faucet, you must look into the ways you can operate it. Many of the popular smart faucets come with multiple ways of operating the device. Some popular ways of controlling smart faucets include motion sensors, mobile apps, and voice commands. 

These three methods allow a smart faucet to help you save time. Some other smart faucet models also come with a manual control feature.

Exact Measurements

When we use a manual faucet, we always struggle with measuring how much water we are getting. As there is no instant way of measuring the amount of water flow right then and there, we have to use measuring utensils to get an idea about how much water we have.

But when using a smart faucet, you can accurately set the amount of water that you want the faucet to pour for you.

Exact Temperature

The Arbou U by Moen comes with advanced temperature control. You can set the temperature for your water using the mobile app. 

This way, you get to see the exact temperature of the water coming out of the faucet.

Styles

When it comes to the design of the smart faucets, along with making your life easier, they are meant to complement the overall interior design of your kitchen. Some of them come in multiple color variations and some come with different complementary accessories such as a soap dispenser.

Installation — Plumbing and Power

Before deciding on which smart faucet you need, you should look into the power options for the faucet. Many smart faucets work with AAA batteries, some require direct AC power via a socket while others should be hardwired.

And then some faucets come with 1,2,3, and 4-hole fitting options. Before buying a faucet, always make sure you understand the requirements in your kitchen sink.

Smartphone App

As mentioned above, most smart kitchen faucets come with a dedicated smartphone app. The app can be used to control all aspects of a smart faucet, starting from activating water flow, to adjusting the water temperature. 

Moreover, using the app, you can connect your smart faucet with a voice assistant such as Google Voice Assistant, Alexa or Siri.

Powerboost

The Arbou U by Men comes with a Power Boost option to increase the pressure of your water. This option helps produce concentrated flows of water instantly to help remove stubborn stains.

Pulldown Spout

Pull-away spouts are very useful when cleaning large pots and pans that simply do not fit in the sink. 

Different models have different length spouts so best to check which suits best before deciding on one.
