Moen Introduces ColorCue™, a Color-Changing Self Powered, LED Wand Technology to Indicate Kitchen Faucet Water Temperature

Moen® Haelyn pulldown kitchen faucet with ColorCue™ reduces safety risks while adding upscale, transitional design to the kitchen.

North Olmsted, Ohio… Moen is continuing to elevate experiences at the kitchen sink with the new Haelyn pulldown kitchen faucet with ColorCue technology. ColorCue integrates hydro-powered LED sensors on the pulldown wand to provide users with a visual indicator to see the temperature of the water coming out of the faucet before they feel it.

This new faucet gives users a sense of control as they no longer need to test the water temperature with their hand, reducing the possibility of scalding or discomfort caused by water that is too hot or too cold. The faucet’s pulldown wand seamlessly integrates with an aesthetically pleasing ribbon of LED light that is visible from all angles, and changes color based on the temperature of the water as it moves through the spout. Users now know when the temperature is just right for any kitchen task. The LED light is water powered through hydro-generator technology, so no electricity or batteries are needed.

The LED light follows a five-light sequence to help identify the temperature of the water:

  • Blue – Cold water below 81°F
  • Blue/Purple – Cold water warming up between 81°F and 90°F
  • Purple – Warm water between 91°F and 100°F
  • Purple/Red – Warm water turning hot between 101°F and 109°F
  • Red – Hot water above 109°F

“Our goal was to design a product that could fit into any kitchen by being sleek and beautiful while also delivering on safety and versatility,” said AJ Bergstresser, product manager, kitchen, Moen. “The ColorCue innovation allows consumers to quickly and easily see when the water is ready as it cools or warms up. It’s perfect for parents to see if water is getting too hot for a child, or busy cooks who like to multitask in the kitchen.”

With an upscale transitional design, the faucet is a beautiful addition to any kitchen décor. It is available in elegant finishes such as Matte Black and Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist™ Stainless finish, which resists fingerprints and water spots for a cleaner looking kitchen. For added functionality the faucet also comes with a matching soap dispenser.
