          Glacier Bay Lavmere 7-Spray Handheld Handshower Kit with Pause Feature in Chrome
          This is a great hand held shower. We have tried a few shower heads lately and this is probably our favorite. It looks terrific and has seven settings to choose from. Our favorite setting puts out a very pleasing flow of water similar to what you would find in a rainfall type of head. The angle adjustment even allows this head to rotate far enough down that it can be used as a rainfall head. This is not a high flow, high pressure shower head. A couple of the settings put out firm jets of water that are good for targeting and massaging. As with the other heads we have tried there is a pause setting that would Read More

Our favorite setting puts out a very pleasing flow of water similar to what you would find in a rainfall type of head. The angle adjustment even allows this head to rotate far enough down that it can be used as a rainfall head. This is not a high flow, high pressure shower head. A couple of the settings put out firm jets of water that are good for targeting and massaging. As with the other heads we have tried there is a pause setting that would work great for someone who wants to slow the flow of water without using the shower control. The hose is 5ft long, it could have been a little longer but it works adequately. The head is easy to remove from the holder, actually a bit too easy, when you are changing settings the head rotates too easily in the holder making it a two handed operation.
          The retail packaging on this is one of those dreaded plastic packages that are all but impossible to open. There were no instructions but it did come with some thread seal tape.
          The packaging does not list this as a water saver shower head but it seems to be one. At 80psi it puts out 1.8gpm and at 45psi 1.35gpm.
          If the height of your current shower head is a bit low you might like that this will set the head up quite a bit higher.
          Replacing the shower head was a five minute job. Removed the old one and screwed this one on.
          This is a really nice shower head.
          Pros
          Looks great
          Relaxing output
          Easy install

The hose is a foot longer than on my other hand held shower, this allows the hand held piece to almost touch the floor, very nice.
          If you have low water pressure you might love this shower head, it is not a water saver, it puts out 2.5 gal per minute which is much more than my current shower head. There is also a flow regulator that can be removed.
          If the height of your current shower head is a bit low you might like that this will set the head up quite a bit higher.
          Replacing the shower head was a five minute job. Removed the old one and screwed this one on.
          With the exception of the two hose connections everything is made of plastic so no worries about rust or corrosion.
          Really appreciated the well written instructions with illustrations. The thread seal tape was also a pleasant surprise.
          This is a really nice shower head and would work really well for someone with low water pressure.

          This is a great shower head. It looks terrific and has seven settings to choose from. There are a couple of settings that put out firm jets of water that are good for targeting and massaging, from there you can adjust the spray to larger patterns with less pressure. I like the setting where all of the jets are used, you still get good pressure but you get a nice relaxing shower. There is even a pause setting that would work great for someone who wants to slow the flow of water without using the shower knobs, this would allow them to keep the water temperature constant.

          Upon removal from the box you will find lots of pieces and color coded bags of parts that will help with assembly.

          Upon removal from the box you will find lots of pieces and color coded bags of parts that will help with assembly.

No matter if you are replacing an old opener or if this is a new install plan on it taking you a few hours and there are places that a helper will be beneficial.

          Once installed there is a programming operation manual that you use to complete the setup. I like that this is a separate book in a size that can be easily filed away.
          The belt drive makes this unit quieter than a chain drive but my door makes enough noise going up and down that I doubt I will notice this. This opener has two light bulbs (not included) that will come on when the opener is engaged or you can turn them on via a button on the wall controller.
          This opener is compatible with cars that have Homelink or Car2U integration.
          This is also a smart opener. Using your WIFI and Genie Connect you can open/close the door from your smartphone, give others access, get notifications when the door is operated and even see who opened it. Very nice!!
          The included battery backup is a great idea, especially for those who live in areas prone to power outages. The battery appears to be a standard sealed lead acid battery that is used in many other devices such as my home alarm system and my invisible fence system.
          Along with the wall controller there are two pre-programmed 3-button remotes.
          If you have an 8 foot tall garage door there is an optional kit that includes more railing and a longer belt. There is also an optional external keypad available.
          There is a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the motor/gearbox and belt. Five years on The Core System (powerhead, wired wall controller, Safe-T-Beam system, J-Arm and rail).
          This is a high quality, well designed opener with a great warranty that should provide years of service.
          I don’t think you will find a better opener than this.

          Well written instructions
          Quality built

          The Array by Hampton connected door lock works with your home's Wi-Fi router and smart devices allowing you to lock and unlock your door from anywhere with your smart phone or tablet. Connects directly to your home Wi-Fi so no additional equipment is required. Works with both Android and iOS (Apple) smart phones, tablets, Apple or Android Wear smart watches. Create and manage e-codes remotely with the app and set detailed access schedules. Invite family members to download the app and issue and manage electronic keys (e-keys). Want to know who accessed the lock. Review the activity log to see detailed history. Just say “Alexa lock my door” or ask “Alexa is my door locked” with our Amazon Alexa integration. Includes two rechargeable lithium polymer batteries for convenient and uninterrupted function. Includes a built-in solar panel which can extend the battery life in certain conditions.

          This is a great door lock with a few caveats.

          Array Barrington Satin Nickel WiFi Smart Electronic Doorlock
          This is a great door lock with a few caveats. This lock replaces the deadbolt on your door and allows you to lock/unlock it via four different methods: a key, a front mounted keypad, an app on your Android or Apple smart phone or via voice using Amazon’s Alexa. The lock comes with a Kwikset keyway and since all of my current locks are Kwikset I started off by going to my local locksmith and having the lock re-keyed to my current keys. While I was doing this I had the battery charging. The lock came with printed installation instructions which also pointed you to an online video. I followed the printed instructions and once the lock was installed I used the online information to install the app and configure the lock. None of this was difficult. Once everything is up and running you can use the app to: unlock/lock the door, check the battery percentage, check activity, assign keys (give access to others). You can even limit the hours that folks have access.
          To access the keypad you have to slide the cover with the solar panel upward, while not overly difficult it was also not extremely easy. Since my door is set back into the porch and weather does not get to it I thought I might leave the cover in the open position, nope, for the solar panel to charge the battery it has to be closed.
          I could not find any way to get push notifications to my phone when the lock is used. I asked Array support via their website and they confirmed you can not do this. You can use the app to check the activity of the lock, it will even show you if someone manually locked/unlocked the door, this is a nice but I would prefer to receive push notifications directly to my phone.
          Alexa works great with this lock. You need to install the skill, link the account and discover the device, as part of the process you will have to assign an unlock code. When you ask Alexa to unlock the door she will ask for the code, you don’t need the code to lock the door. You can also ask Alexa if the door is locked. This all worked perfectly.
          The lock comes with two batteries and a charger. My front door sets quite a ways back into the porch and does not get much direct sun. After about 3 weeks the battery got down to 10% and entered battery saver mode. The battery was easy to replace, simply slide the cover off the front, slip the battery out and slide in the new one, then to take the lock out of battery saver mode push the button on the outside of the lock. I had hoped to get enough sunlight that the lock would stay charged. Not real thrilled about needing to change the battery every three weeks. There are times when we travel and are gone a couple of months at a time. If the battery goes dead you can use the physical key to unlock the lock. We don’t normally use the front door so the battery life will not be a huge issue.
          Geofencing is the ability to use your phones GPS to get notifications about locking/unlocking your door based on where you are, this is in Beta and did not work for me. I have it enabled but I seldom receive notifications based on this and normally I am sitting at home when one comes in.
          Pros:
          Quality built
          Great design
          Looks terrific
          Comes with two batteries
          Cons:
          Short battery life

          Does this saw actually come with a laser? The product listing on the Home Depot website states that it does, but mine doesn't appear to have one, just the hardware that would hold it. The user manual makes no mention of it, and the parts manual lists line items 183 and 185 as left/right laser covers, but doesn't include a laser either.

          Or since there's obviously a spot to mount one, is there at least a compatible after market laser available?

          Answer: 
          The saw does not come with a laser. You can probably figure out how to mount one but the instruction manual does not mention anything.
