Until recently, most people have considered touchless fixtures to only be available in a commercial environment, since we’re used to seeing them at our local retail stores, businesses, or other places outside of the home. However, there has been an increase in the availability of touchless fixtures at a consumer level – some of them even having deep integration with your favorite smart home devices.
Touchless fixtures can help reduce the spread of germs in your home. As an example, when you touch the handle of a faucet, the germs on your hands are easily transferred to the handle and can linger there for a very long time. Having one less object to touch prevents this simple germ transfer scenario.
Additionally, touchless fixtures allow you to control the quantity of resources being dispensed. This reduction of waste is great for the environment, but it can be even better for your bank account!
