Product Description

The simplehuman rectangular sensor can features multi-sense technology. It reacts and adapts to your behavior, so it won't open unexpectedly or close before you've finished your task - very sensible.

•Multi-sense: Our sensor adapts to your tasks. It’s touch-free technology that’s in sync with your needs.
•Ready mode: The trigger zone is a focused space directly above the lid — easy to reach, but precise enough to avoid false triggers.
•Task mode: Once the lid is open, the trigger zone extends to become more sensitive to activity, so the lid won’t close before you’re finished.
•Stay-open mode: After 3 seconds of continued activity, the lid automatically opens wider and switches to a 30-second stay-open mode — great for longer chores.
•Robust internal hinge: The strong, die-cast steel hinge is built to last, but still sleek enough to place the can right against the wall.
•Robust mechanism: Slam the lid down, overstuff it, or even stop it with your hand. The clutch system will temporarily disengage to prevent any damage to the motor.
•Energy efficient: Lasts up to 1 year with 6 alkaline C batteries, or use with optional simplehuman power adapter.
•Easy access battery compartment: Conveniently located on the back of the can. No fumbling under the lid to change batteries.


Dimensions: 12″ x 17.4″ x 25.1″.

This is without a doubt the most frustrating thing I have ever bought. I have had it for 8-9 months and it is going out with the trash the next time it is full. I would take it back, but it has a big dent in it from one of the times it gave me problems (I kicked it).

You know the "good". It is a nice-looking trash can, and when it works it is nice. Or as my wife said, "A nice surprise".

Because it only works maybe 2/3 of the time. The other third of the time you are standing there like an idiot waving your hand over the sensor, and the lid will just go up half an inch and fall back down. Or not move at all. Or it will start closing on you when you are scraping a plate off into the trash, even though you are desperately waving something over the sensor every 5 seconds to try to prevent what you know is going to happen. Just about the only time you can expect the lid to open is when you walk by with no intention on using the trash can.

The batteries are supposed to last a year or so and ours died in 7 months. I have a moral and practical objection to stationary devices (like computer mice) that use batteries anyway, so it is kind of insulting that the manufacturer didn't include an AC adapter with the trash can. It's $200! Jeez.

The biggest problem is the sporadically-working sensor of course, but this problem is made ten times worse by two other factors. First, the can really needs a button that opens the lid. That way when the sensor fails (which it does, often... did I mention that?) you have a backup option. Preferably the lid would stay open until you hit the button again, that way you could avoid the problem of the lid closing on you prematurely too.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I think the "simplehuman" brand hit it's stride with the fingerprint-proof finish. In that respect, this is a very sharp trash can. Nice brushed stainless finish, easy to keep clean, nice size.

And it's got some other perks (these guys ~really~ think about all these issues) - in addition to the "artificial intelligence", it's got odor control, a place to keep surplus trash bags, won't scratch your floor, and several other features. I never knew a trash can could have so many features.

But I didn't find the auto-sensor to behave consistently, which I expect for this price.

I was hoping this would help keep my kitties out of the trash (they are twins and exact opposites - one is happy-go-lucky, but the other is Einstein with OCD, and can break into anything). Sure enough, he got it open, and could also knock it over. That's when I learned that while it may be fingerprint-proof, it's not dent-proof.

I also must say I was slightly insulted that it didn't come with batteries -or- an AC adapter. How much could it possibly add to the manufacturing cost to include an AC adapter? A couple dollars? Seems they should include things like this for their premium product line (here is the link for the correct AC Adapter for anyone interested: simplehuman Power Adapter).

One other note - this can is designed to fit the Superhuman brand trash bags, but if you're not concerned about an exact fit, you can find some at the store that work ok.

So yeah, this is very cool and space-age. But I expect more consistent performance & an AC adapter for the price.

In terms of a cat-proof trash can - someone please email me if these guys invent a retinal-scan activated trash can!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Having once been a frequent Bed, Bath and Beyonder and having friends who owned their own simplehuman sensor-based trashcan, I knew (in general) what to expect. For the most part, I found simplehuman products to be well built but on the high side of expensive (much like Dyson). What really irked me about this trashcan right off the bat was that it did not include batteries. I received this product through the Amazon Vine program so I bypassed the two-hundred dollar MSRP attached to this item. Having spent high-dollar amounts on odd kitchen/house appliances before though, I can tell you that I'd be very... peeved... to find out that this particular item did not include batteries from the store. Not only that, but it requires 6-C batteries - in a world that seems ruled by AA and AAA batteries, I'd guess that most households would probably have to make a trip out to the store to buy so many (ie: you don't really have these around the house). Oddly enough, I did - but mostly because I never throw anything out. I found an unopened pack of 4 and used my C-cell adapters that came with my Sanyo Eneloop batteries.

For those who are curious, if you planned on purchasing the AC adapter for this trashcan instead of using batteries, the simplehuman branded one costs about $30 (or you could purchase a universal one from an electronics store for about $15). The best picture I could find of the simplehuman one is on Z-appos - as far as I can make out, it's a +9V/3A adapter (the picture can't be zoomed in far though, so try at your own risk) [Note: This was confirmed by NeoEngineer and RG in the comments - thanks guys!]. Unfortunately there is no voltage branding that I could find listed on the actual trashcan.
