New intelligent voice and motion-activated recycling bin offers total control
Binopolis.com's new voice-activated ST2015 bin has been designed to automatically open when it hears you say 'open can', thanks to intelligent sensors for complete control in the kitchen.
Designed by Simplehuman, this new bin in fingerprint-proof, brushed stainless steel enables you to throw rubbish away quickly and efficiently. This hassle-free solution also features a motion sensor, which will simply open at the wave of a hand.
The new 58-litre ST2015 has dual compartments so you can sort your rubbish from your recyclables in one convenient bin. With neat, custom-fit liners for rubbish, which are stored in a convenient pocket that you can access inside your 34-litre bin compartment, and a handy bucket to remove recycling in the 24-litre section, this bin has been specifically designed to make life easier in the kitchen.
"This new bin take recycling and rubbish disposal to a new level with its fast, accurate voice-activated controls," says Jane Pollard, co-director at Binopolis. "The intelligent sensors mean it is smart enough not to react to false triggers and unexpected lid closures are a thing of the past.
"The liner pocket makes a fantastic addition to the rubbish compartment as this enables you to change your liners faster and the liner rim lifts up for easy access to the liner then closes to grip, keeping it hidden from view."
The liners are dispensed one by one so you no longer need to worry about perforations or unravelling and the nano-silver clear coat prevents germs and fingerprints from spoiling this sophisticated, design-led bin. This model is whisper quiet at 52dB, making it 50% quieter than others on the market.
The bin measures 56.5cmW by 33cmD by 63.5cmH and comes with a five-year manufacturer's warranty.
