The Temperature Controlled Faucet Light is designed to determine the temperature of the flowing water and shine a corresponding stream of light that changes as the water temperature varies.
How Does the Temperature Controlled Faucet Light Work?
Faucet Light replaces the aerator on the end of an existing
faucet. When the water begins flowing through the device the
technology inside is able to determine the temperature of the
water. When the flowing water is cold, a blue light shines down
through the water stream. When the water starts to get warmer
(89˚F/32˚C), the light stream changes from blue to red to alert
the user that the water is getting hot. When the water is off,
the light goes off.
“It’s a product that we think is fun, funky and functional,”
says Hog Wild President Joe Rooper. “It has a unique wow-factor
that everyone enjoys, but is also very practical in helping
prevent possible scalds or accidents.” Rooper says the light
streams are an unexpected surprise and a real conversation
The novelty of the Faucet Light also makes the bathroom more fun
and therefore can help encourage kids to spend more time
brushing their teeth or washing their hands. In addition to the
safety factor the Faucet Light provides, it can also serve as a
unique night light. For adults, the Faucet Light also adds a
touch of fun and illuminated elegance to a bathroom or powder
room. For seniors, it lets them know in advance when the water
is getting hot.
The patented device is 2.5” long x 1.25” in diameter. It
includes a set of two universal adaptors that fits virtually
every US faucet and screws on in seconds. The product comes in
chrome and brushed silver finishes and includes a set of button
cell batteries in the product as well an additional set of
batteries as replacements. Typical battery life for one set is
around 4 months under normal usage. Battery replacements can
also be purchased at most hardware and convenience stores.
The Faucet Light sells for $21.95 and can be purchased at
specialty retailers in the US.
