It's marketed by Rubbermaid Commercial Products but arrives in a box labelled "Technical Concepts", a provider of restroom hygiene products that Newell Rubbermaid acquired in 2008, so it's from a company you can trust.
At an average street price around $60, this is an economical choice over a $400+ automatic flush valve and the attendant expense of professional installation, and in the event of a failure you have the option of removing it and still having the option to manually flush.
The nature of it's design keeps the electronics separated from water and moisture for reliability.
This unit requires 4 "C" batteries, and they (Duracell) are included, a nice touch.
This model being reviewed is for urinals, there is a companion model for toilets that has an added button for "courtesy flush".
Installation is super-easy, there is an included "T" wrench with a "security" (drilled to fit over a tamper-resistant pin) Allen wrench and a small screwdriver tip for adjustment of sensor range. The instructions clearly spell out the adjustment procedure if fine-tuning is necessary. The unit is preset from the factory and will not normally require user intervention.
It's adjustable for "Object Lock" and "Sensor Range" to prevent unwanted flushes.
There are options for an automatic flush once every 24 hours, and an alarm tone for low batteries.
There are green and yellow led status lights that tell you the unit is operating normally and warn you when the batteries are low.
The unit appears to be metal, but is actually plastic with a vacuum-applied chrome plating; as such, it's probably not as vandal-proof as a metal casting but you're not out $400 if somebody breaks it off.
In summary, I give it 5 stars for ease of installation. Good instructions are included as well as batteries,
and it's an economical alternative to an integrated auto-flush valve.
I will say, I embarked on installing a "guest" bathroom for the backyard and wanted to use the Rubbermaid Commercial Products Auto Flush Clamp system to polish my installation. The Rubbermaid Commercial Products Auto Flush Clamp system is designed to fit Sloan and Zurn flush mount handles but this would not be the only models the system fits. You can contact Technical Concepts at 1-800-551-5155 for more compatibility information.
Installation is quite effortless as the system is a slide on or clamp on system. You merely use the supplied allen wrench which does implement a sensor adjustment tool to perform much if not all of the adjustments.
After the physical assembly and instruction phase, there is the activation phase. The activation phase merely requires you to use yourself as a metric for determining activation ranges.
The Rubbermaid Commercial Products Auto Flush Clamp system comes in both a metal and plastic version with the metal version being just slightly more expensive. The metal body versions afford more durability and would seem to suggest a more industrial versus commercial application, ie., commercial being office and industrial being high traffic gas station type setting. I find it quite handy and useful as well that the toilet models feature the "courtesy flush" mode, but not every user will partake of this feature.
The unit is easy to install and includes all of the required parts and batteries. The actual installation was very straight forward took less than 15-minutes from start to finish to get this on our Slone urinal. The unit is adjustable for the triggering settings but we left it with the factory configuration. The unit does have indicator LEDS that let you know when the batteries need to be changed.
