Delta Faucet Continues To Pave the Way for Innovation in the Kitchen and Bath

Delta Faucet Company showcases its latest technologies at the 2013 International Builders' Show

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With continued strength and stabilization being seen across the housing market as well as improvement in overall remodeling activity, Delta Faucet Company is pleased to showcase its latest design innovations and technologies for the home at the 2013 International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, January 22-24. The Delta® brand will exhibit its platform of smart solutions, which address the growing trend of technology in the home, especially busy areas such as the kitchen, where added functionality can have significant impact.

"As technology continues to play a significant role in our daily lives, consumers are looking to integrate smart solutions that offer efficiency throughout their home," said Bob Rodenbeck, director of research and development for Delta Faucet. "In the kitchen and the bath, Delta Faucet continues to lead the industry in new product innovations, from our Touch2O® Technology, which allows users to turn their faucets on with a simple tap, to our H2Okinetic™ Technology, which delivers an even more drenching and satisfying shower without using more water."

Delta kitchen technologies reinvent the user experience
Touch2O Technology continues to improve the way consumers interact with their kitchen faucet by affording precise and reliable control to activate the flow of water exactly when and where it's needed – even when hands are full or messy. In 2013, Touch2O Technology will continue to serve as a cornerstone to the Delta brand's smart solutions approach with the addition of new styles such as the Cassidy™ collection, which includes faucets featuring the technology.  

With Touch2O Technology, once the manual handle is moved to an on position users can simply tap anywhere on the spout, hub or handle of the faucet to turn on and off the water stream. Touch2O Technology makes it easier to turn on the water flow when hands are messy or turn off the water when it is not needed between tasks, potentially helping to save water. It also reduces the potential for cross-contamination while keeping the faucet cleaner.

Many Delta kitchen faucets with Touch2O Technology also feature other Delta product innovations, including MagnaTite® docking, which keeps pull-down spray wands firmly in place when not in use by using a powerful integrated magnet, and DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, ensuring "like new" operation for the life of the faucet.  

Delta Faucet brings new innovations to the bath
Delta H2Okinetic showers help create the feeling of more water without using more water. This technology can now be found in the brand's new In2ition® two-in-one showers. In2tition showers with H2Okinetic technology feature a detachable hand shower, which can run separately or simultaneously with the fixed showerhead, giving the user the comfort of water streaming from the showerhead in any position and the flexibility to accomplish other tasks, such as bathing children, washing pets and cleaning the shower. 

Also on display at this year's show will be working lavatory faucets with Touch2O.xt Technology, the brand's latest bathroom advancement.  Touch2O.xt Technology unites Delta Touch2O Technology with hands-free sensing. An available option on lavatory faucets in the Addison® and Lahara® bath collections, users can touch it on and touch it off, or have an entirely hands-free experience.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
