Everything you need to know about smart faucets in Los AngelesThere is a “smart” version of everything these days: we have smart phones, smart TVs, smart alarm clocks…the list goes on. Nothing seems to be off-limits for our ever-growing technology, not even our kitchens! So it should come as no surprise that you can now also have access to smart faucets that are as futuristic as any episode of Star Trek. Want to learn more? You’ve come to the right place?

First things first

Before we get to talking about smart faucets, we should talk about how we got here. Turns out that kitchen sinks have been around for a long, long time! The first version of them is almost unrecognizable from what we have today. The Neanderthals simply had large rocks that, after centuries of rain, eroded into concave shapes.

During the early 1800s, people started pumping water from from supply wells or tanks, coming closer to the modern sink. It wasn’t until the 1920s, however, that indoor plumbing became a direct ancestor of our modern systems.

Smart faucets

We have come a long way since the stone age, haven’t we? Today’s smart faucets would scare the socks off those Neanderthals.

As you can probably imagine, the distinctive feature of smart faucets is that they can be touchless. Forget about pulling any levers or turning any knobs: all you have to do is wave your hand before a steady stream is released.

Some smart systems are also advanced enough to release exact amounts of water. For example, you can specify and tell your faucet to give you only half a cup or water, or as little as one tablespoon. Pretty convenient for cooking, right? It can also save you money on water bills.

Cost of smart faucets

Smart faucets naturally cost more than their regular counterparts. You can expect to pay a couple of hundred dollars minimum, depending on which equipment you choose. We expect that overtime, as technology improves, smart faucets will become more ubiquitous and their price will decline, making them more affordable.
