How do I turn the faucet on/off?
There are two unique ways to turn the faucet on and off:
1. Place your hand or an object up to 9 inches in front of the center Easy Sensor (Sensor C) activation zone. Water will turn off when your hand or an object is away from the activation zone.
2. Place your hand over both two sensors (Sensor A and B) on the right side of the faucet. Water will continue to run until you turn it off by placing your hand over the two sensors (Sensor A and B) again.

How do I change water temperature?
When water is flowing, place your finger about one and half inches in front of Sensor A (on upper right side.) This will increase water temperature. Place your finger about one and half inches in front of Sensor B (on lower right side.) This will lower water temperature.
How do I adjust water flow?
You can control water flow or amount of water by placing your finger about one and half inches in front of Sensor D (on upper left side.) This will increase water flow. Place your finger in front of Sensor E (on lower left side.) This will lower water flow. All kitchen faucets will come with a maximum flow rate of 2.2 gpm and 1.5 gpm for lavatory faucets.
How do I increase my water pressure?
Water pressure is driven by your home's water supply. There are two filters(strainer) in water supply hose adapter of the iSense® system. If you are experiencing low flow, Cinaton recommends that you check and clean the filters:
1. Check and clean your filters(strainers) in the spray head and pull-down hose.

iSense® Installation and Power Information
Can the Touch free Intelligent Faucet be installed outdoors?
It is not recommended to install the faucet outdoors. The Touch free Intelligent Faucet uses "infrared sensor" technology to sense objects such as fingers, hands or objects. Infrared light is emitted from an LED inside a sensor. An object in the path of the infrared light will reflect back to the sensor and be received by an infrared receiver to activate the faucet function. The strong infrared light in the outdoor sunlight will interfere with the sensor and cause the faucet to malfunction.
Can I install a Touch free Intelligent Faucet on a sink against a kitchen window with direct sunlight?
Yes. Our inventive technology will not cause problems to the infrared sensor faucet. But in some cases, a shiny sink wall or surface might reflect sunlight at the sensor and activate the sensors, especially the Easy Sensor (Sensor C). Also, if you wear light color clothing or shiny material, it might activate the sensors. You can turn the spout away from the current position or remove the reflecting object to eliminate this problem.
Can the Touch free Intelligent Faucet be installed on any type of sink?
Cinaton's faucets are designed for all types of deck mount applications. It is recommended when installing vessel type sinks, the center Easy Sensor(Sensor C) of faucet must be elevated above the edge of sink to prevent infrared sensor from being blocked.
