Take touchless to a whole new level of convenience. The Sensate touchless pull down kitchen faucet frees your hands so you can speed through cooking and cleanup tasks while enjoying a cleaner, more hygienic kitchen environment. Sensate's intuitive Response technology is in tune with your every move: a simple wave of your hand--or an object such as a pan or utensil--turns it on or off. The faucet's sensor is precision-designed to provide reliable operation every time and to prevent false activations when you're working in the sink area. DockNetik, KOHLER's new docking system, secures the pull-down spray head to the spout using magnetic force.

  • Response technology provides reliable touchless on/off operation through a state-of-the-art sensor that responds in 20 milliseconds
  • Precision activation window helps prevent false activations
  • DockNetik, a magnetic docking system located within the spout, smoothly glides and securely locks the spray head into place
  • AC-powered operation – no batteries to replace
  • Keep clean: helps you control the spread of germs

I already have an outlet under my sink for the plug. Is there anything else that will go under the sink to enable the AC to work other then just plugging it in?

Answer: 
Is the led light by the faucet handle lit up? If no, make certain that the control box is plugged in. The water will only turn on with the handle at first, then you can turn it off and back on again using the sensor, without turning on the handle (leave it on).

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent but you can't get VERY HOT water from this faucet Great features on an easy to use faucet. Fantastic that it works manually with or without electricity. But evidently has a serious design flaw if you want to use VERY HOT water for any kitchen task. Our Sensate can produce warm to hot water but never produces water as hot as that comes out of our five other faucets elsewhere in the house. So it's not our hot water heater setting. We also checked to make sure the input valves are open all the way to the Sensate. On email contact with Kohler, they replied that there is no way available to adjust the temperature flow. So guess it''s designed to prevent scalding but offers no way to override the setting when there are only responsible adults using the faucet who want very hot water. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMAZING Faucet! Expensive but worth it if you want a touchless faucet. The ability to control the flow and water temp with the handle is priceless as compared to the Moen with preset temp and flow. Plus the flow from the faucet in standard mode (not using touchless sensor) is the same as with a normal faucet (Moen has very low flow when not using the sensor). Easy installation, good instructions and it looks amazing. Finish is perfect, touchless sensor is not too sensitive (no false starts) and having the single sensor under the neck is great and intuitive. I did a lot of research before I talked my wife and myself into this more expensive faucet; but this was definitely the right choice! February 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome faucet We have had this faucet for over 1 year in our kitchen remodel. Has worked flawlessly and the touchless feature is well worth the money. We absolutely love it and highly recommend it. March 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kohler Sensate AC-powered Touchless Kitchen Faucet in VS with DocNetik Love it works great! The only thing the sensor is sensitive with steam. March 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Way better than the old touch faucets Installed in our new kitchen. Plumber installed it with no problems. Nice that it runs on AC, which plugged into a outlet under the sink. Works great. Once you know where the beam is it is very easy to turn on and off with no accidental on/offs. The concentrated spray feature is great and gives extra force when rinsing pans. Overall, well designed. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cool Gadget I enjoy a good gadget and this certainly qualifies as one. I purchased this faucet to replace the one that came with a new home. We enjoy the hands-free operation and the high-tech appearance. Pressure for both standard and spray operation is better than expected. Installation was straightforward with the most time consuming portion being changing the single 20amp receptacle to a 2-gang. April 21, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works great for 1 year on the dot then that's all. I loved this faucet for exactly 1 year. After that, the automatic feature starts to give out. The led light goes out for a few days, you switch to manual override and then it came back on for 2 months all by itself. After that it has gone out again. Kohler has no support on its website to trouble shoot this except in the manual trouble shooting and it is likely that the circuit board has gone bad. Not a huge issue to replace but for the price of this faucet that to have a cheap circuit board go out after a year that is not a good sign. I hope Kohler is prompt in replacing it. Also, the warranty would not cover the labor costs so I hope anybody who buys this can do it themselves. September 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well made ~ Love it!! A little expensive but worth it!! The best feature is the touchless use and no batteries required! Just love it! April 28, 2015
