Description

This remote control can adjust several settings of Giampieri basin sensor taps like the reaction time, the stop time or the sensing range. Two 1.5V AAA batteries are furnished in the package. Note that only one remote control is needed to connect with infinite amount of Giampieri faucets. Every infrared tap manual explains which particular options are available in that product, their goal and how to change them. The temporary off function is preset with 1 minute, so that the cleaning of the sensor tap can take place. Likewise, by default, the security time of 90 seconds will prevent water waste because of vandalism, mistakes or any other reason for obstructing the infrared sensor. The 24h hygiene flush will allow to reduce the level of microbes that could grow in some components. Consider that not all models have all the functions.

To proceed, cut off water supply. Next, place the remote control opposite the tap sensor, approximately 15 or 20 centimetres away. Press the desired function button, wait for a quick red flashing light and then increase or decrease levels by using (+) or (-) buttons respectively.

Why would (not) you recommend a sensor tap?

We've compared different types of faucets and we've found a lot of advantages of sensor taps, specially for commercial bathrooms and public toilets. You can read them in this blog post, including a few less positive considerations.

You can also check this summary:

  • Advantages
    • Water conservation
    • Energy saving
    • Reducing costs in the bill
    • Easily operated by any user
    • Cut off time to prevent misuse
    • Customisation once for good
    • A cleaner washroom (no dirty handle, less splashes, no sink overflow)
    • No cross-contamination
    • No corrosion (depending on the model)
    • One remote control can adjust infinite taps
  • Neutral features
    • Users will have to learn how to use them (once)
    • Maintenance is required, like any other tap
    • Batteries must be replaced
  • Disadvantages
    • Greater initial investment
    • Remote control to change settings
    • Power cut would entail no operation
    • Infrared sensors can make mistakes
    • Animals activate them as well
    • Some internal parts may favour bacteria
    • More likeliness to replace the whole unit

We advise you to assess what points are more relevant and frequent according to your needs and the location of the tap.

Anything practical to know about infrared sensors?

The proximity sensors in our taps and some soap dispensers use active infrared technology: they detect the infrared radiation that a close object (in their range) reflects back. This means that hands, washroom accessories or just even dirt near them will activate them.

Furthermore, infrared sensors can misinterpret certain situations and open the solenoid valve when they are not suppose to:

  • Mirrors and very reflective finishes (like polished chrome) in front of them will send confusing signals if they are closer than 1.5 metre to the tap. One must be careful for example with the elements of the basin bowl: the spout of wall-mounted sensor taps should be at least 300mm away from the bottom of the sink and not facing a shiny basin plug. Tap sensors can also react if a person is wearing striking garments.
  • Other infrared sensors opposite them also imply unintended triggers.

Therefore, we encourage you to read the installation guidelines the manufacturer provides and accept that accidental unlocks are a (rare) fact.
