How the U by Moen Smart Faucet Works:

Users are able to control their U by Moen Smart Faucet in four ways:

 •Voice control allows users to start and stop water flow as well as perform specific tasks on command through their digital voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.  Such as “Hey Google, ask Moen to wash my hands.” The Smart Faucet runs the precise amount of water at the precise temperature to properly wash your hands. Apply soap and lather for 20 seconds. Then the faucet automatically turns back on for you to rinse you hands.

•A Wave Sensor positioned at the front of the faucet turns water on or off with a simple hand movement.

 •The handle on the side of the faucet offers manual operation, letting users adjust flow and temperature.

• Through the smartphone app, users can set unlimited personalized presets or start and stop water delivery with the push of a button.

 The U by Moen Smart Faucet is the only voice-activated kitchen faucet on the commercial market to offer voice- and hands-free activation regardless of the faucet’s manual handle position. Voice service and hands-free control will start or stop the water flow, dispensing the desired temperature and amount, whether the faucet handle is in the open or closed position, and despite manual temperature selection with the handle. 


Activating with Voice Commands:

To activate the U by Moen Smart Faucet, users simply ask Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant to turn the water on or off, as well as dispense precise measurements and temperatures. Once they have created personalized presets in the Moen app, homeowners only need to state the name of the preset within the command.

Voice-activated capabilities include:

• Metered dispensing in fractional metric and non-metric measurements from one tablespoon up to    15 gallons

• Exact and generic temperature commands: “105 degrees” and “hot water” or “cold water”

• Combined metered and temperature requests: “1/2 cup of 105-degree water” or “Two ounces of hot water”

• User-customized presets created within the Moen app: “Baby Bottle” or “Dog Bowl”

Additionally, preheat commands will warm or cool the water to the desired generic or specific temperature, then pause the flow of water until users re-engage the faucet. As the water temperature changes, the hands-free sensor on the faucet will evolve from blue, purple and red, indicating the system is warming up or cooling down to reach the desired water temperature. When the water is ready, the sensor lights will stop flashing and turn solid. 

Users will know the command has worked as the voice speaker will reply indicating the desired activity has been completed and the flow of water will start or stop.
