          "Turn my faucet on. Pour two cups."The Setra smart faucet with voice-activated technology dispenses measured amounts of water at your spoken command. Just say the words to turn the water on, fill containers to a preset level or dispense a specific quantity. In addition to voice control, this touchless faucet has a motion sensor that turns water on and off with a wave of your hand. The faucet works with the KOHLER Konnect app so you can monitor water usage and be notified of unusual flow. Color: Vibrant Stainless.

          A great idea, but falls a bit short in the software interface side. Installation is a little more involved than a regular faucet because there is an electronic component to it (which interacts with either Alexa or Google). The overall concept is great, but the software is quite lacking. I wanted to create a routine to fill my coffee pot with 6.5 cups of water (a coffee cup is generally around six ounces but varies from machine to machine). Kohler only thinks of a cup as 8 ounces and doesn't allow for a fraction of a cup. So, I had to revert to the command of measuring 28 ounces (which is approximately the amount I wanted). I wasn't able to create a predefined routine with that amount, so Read More

Kohler only thinks of a cup as 8 ounces and doesn't allow for a fraction of a cup. So, I had to revert to the command of measuring 28 ounces (which is approximately the amount I wanted). I wasn't able to create a predefined routine with that amount, so every morning I'll have to ask for 28 ounces rather than a more convenient 6.5 cups or "my morning coffee". Other than the software the Kohler brand is top notch when it domes to faucets and the like. This faucet just needs a more robust set of skills for Alexa. I really like the idea of a simple hand wave under the faucet turns the water ON/OFF, or a command to start/stop the water. No more dripping hands going to the handle to turn the water ON/OFF. If there is a power loss or malfunction there is a valve on the electronic control which puts it in MANUAL mode (like a traditional faucet) Overall a good choice, hopefully they'll improve the software side.

          I really like the vintage design of these bulbs without the cost associated with a traditional incandescent. As an eight watt LED this is very efficient. They're perfect when trying to set a certain mood or have a timeless looking bulb on display. In my case I wanted one of these over my the large tub in my master bathroom. The fact that it's dimmable gives an almost candlelight feel, without the candles. It would also be perfect in a hanging pendant over a front door, or drop lights in a kitchen. They have a timeless look to them and are perfect in the right setting.
          Pros: Clear Instructions, Compact, Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright

          The Coast brand of a wearable headlamp is one of my favorites. It's reasonably priced and does a great job of providing temporary, hands-free lighting. Living in Florida, there are many times when the power goes out or storms roll through which disrupts power. I keep a few of these wearable lights and give them to guests so they can make their way around the house without relying on a shared flashlight. Also, whenever I go in the attic I bring one with me, just in case the one installed light goes out and I find myself in a far corner of the attic in the dark. I have worn these lights a few times when riding my bike at night, but not too often. They last a long time and the batteries are Read More

          An absolutely beautiful electric range. I like the controls along the front, eliminating the traditional raised button controls along the back. The flat surface is ideal to position the stove against a tiled backsplash. However there is an insert/spacer if it doesn't fit directly against the wall. The controls are very intuitive and simple to use. No need to run for the manual to figure out how to complete normal tasks, such as, set the clock, oven, cleaning, etc. It has two types of cleaning.

          I’m a little confused reading people’s comments about this mower. So if you let go of the personal pace bar... The mower stops. But if the mower stops, as in some comments, then the engine cuts off too? Like a safety feature? So if you let go of the personal pace bar to stop and turn the mower 90 degrees and then continue... will you have issues doing that?

          Answer: 
          there are two separate bars on the mower, one controls the transmission (pace bar as you call it), the other, separate bar controls the engine (running of not). So the engine will continue to run while the pace bar (transmission) is engaged and disengaged. The entire system works great!
