The Moen MotionSense faucet can be turned on and off simply by waving your hand over the top of the faucet. A separate motion sensor under the faucet turns the water on and off when something is placed under it, such as a pot or your hands. In addition you can also turn use the handle to turn the faucet on and off manually.
The faucet also has an easily retractable pullout wand with three functions: spray, aerated, and pause. The Moen MotionSense faucet is available at The Home Depot in stainless steel, chrome, and oil-rubbed bronze finishes.

Jodi Marks: There are so many innovative products out in the market now to make your kitchen more functional but actually safer, too. Right, Shea?
Shea Pettaway: That’s right, Jodi. Moen actually has a new kitchen faucet that is motion sensed by three different ways. You have the Wave Sensor, the Ready Sensor, and this cool feature, the three spray pull down feature. It has the spray, you can pause it, and it’s an aerated stream as well.
Jodi Marks: See, that’s neat because if you’ve got dirty hands from, say, outside working in your garden, you’ve got hands full with your pot, or even if you’ve been working with raw meat. You certainly don’t want to be touching your faucet, because that’s where germs can breed, and then you can infect someone down the road. But if you’ve got your little sensors here, you don’t have to touch a thing, and the water comes on and you can wash your hands. I love it.
Shea Pettaway: Great feature. And as well, it already has the supply lines included with it.
Jodi Marks: And a lot of people complain that the sprayer inside the neck of the faucet, you know, it dangles over time; but look how that just clicks right back into place. Thank you, Shea, so much.
Shea Pettaway: Thank you.
Some very interesting faucet designs have recently come out. I particularly like the motion sensor faucet. And faucet insulation is very easy. Great way to Quick quickly update any kitchen.
Does the water need to be directed in the hole where the garbage disposal is or can it run on any part of the sink, for the garbage disposal to work effectively?
Lately my Moen sensor faucet will shut off for over 15minutes. Have to play with it to get it to work

I have had my Moen faucet for 3 yrs. In the past 6 months the water pressure is very low. I’m not sure what is happening or why
