To allow a pan to fill, for instance, you can activate the sensor, walk away and come back a minute later and activate the sensor to turn off the water flow?

Answer: 
It will turn off after 3 or 4 minutes if you use the sensor to start the water flow. I believe that if you use the handle instead, it will run indefinitely.

It has a built in activator that will turn it off. I think it is 4 minutes of running time, but am not positive of that.

Answer: 
Yes but it has a automatic shut off after a certainly amount of time (feels like 5 min). It will shut off automatically when you are doing lots of dishes. No big deal for that type of backup safety.

Can the faucet turn on without using the censors? Can the handle on the side be used like a traditional faucet?

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a "non-touchless" option built into this faucet. For example, can you use the side handle to turn on the water and keep the water running consistently for an extended amount of time. I'd rather not have to wave at the sensor every couple of seconds to keep the water running when I am doing an activity that requires the water to be on for awhile. For example, if I am filling a big pot of water, then I would like to be able to leave the pot and let if fill while I head to the other side of my kitchen. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks!

Answer: 
Yes, you can bypass the sensor by simply turning off the handle, then turning it back on again. The water will run until you activate the motion sensor which shuts it off.

Answer: 
It can be used without the touchless option. On touchless mode, I think it runs for 4 minutes before shutting off, but you can always turn on/shut off manually.

Yes it can. Works great. you just have turn it on manually then shut it automatically to engage the automatic feature. It also has a physical manual override under the sink (like if the power is out for a long time or the circuit board goes bad).

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17 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 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 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 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
