          Large, and easy to stick on & peel off.
          These are not glow-in-the-dark, for your information. But they are easy to stick, and easy to remove. A bit on the thin side, unfortunate, for their size, meaning that there's a chance they can rip while being moved. The packaging is great, and these are a nice size, at just under a foot per unicorn. Perfect for white or off-white walls in a girl's bedroom. They look great, and are fun activity to perform with your child.

          The first thing you'll notice about these glow-in-the-dark stars are their size. They are very big. If your plan is to re-create the night sky on your ceiling, these unfortunately aren't the best stars to use. They are just too big. They glow just fine, although not very brightly, and not for very long. Easy to stick, and easy to remove.

          A nice, stylish and sturdy towel/robe hook.
          Made to match the Delta Compel line of faucets and other accessories, this stainless steel robe hook is a modern twist on a highly underrated piece of hardware.
          I chose to mount this particular hook in the bath, thereby allowing me to hang wet swim suits. Installation was a breeze, and the hook looks and performs just fine.

          I had high hopes for this device, as i'm a gadget guy. Unfortunately, i was never able to get the device working.
          The idea of being able to monitor and track the air in your home is quite a tantalizing one. Specifically, you could be alerted to any dangerous air levels due to a car running, or perhaps be warned if there was a gas leak from your water heater.
          My phone immediate found the Airthings Wave monitor, connected, and began the setup process. Towards the end, however, was an "Update" screen. It gave the user the "option" of updating the device firmware. Except that there is no way to skip this update. So the app always forced the update, which is supposed to last 3-5 minutes. I Read More

I tried a good dozen times, and got an error every time, with the app needing to be re-started each time. Total design fail here.
          For a connected device right out of the box, it should work every time without needing an "update." Unfortunate. Read Less

          Look nice with a few neat features.
          INSTALLATION
          The installation was pretty easy, and the package came with two install brackets. However, the electrical lamp box on my outer wall was installed at a 45 degree angle, meaning that the screw holes did not line up properly with the groves on the included bracket. This prevented me from properly orienting the lamp, and instead i had to install it askew. There should have been a better solution to this issue.

This prevented me from properly orienting the lamp, and instead i had to install it askew. There should have been a better solution to this issue.
          LIGHTING
          The lamp is wonderfully bright, and allows for changing the color temperature of the light. This is a great feature to give your outdoors just the lighting they need. Additionally, the two heads are extremely maneuverable, and you can position the lights in almost any direction.
          APP & SETUP
          The bluetooth setup was quite easy, and the lamp paired almost instantly with my phone. You must be near the lamp to complete the setup. If you stray too far away, it won't connect.
          The app is quite nice, but limited in functionality. It allows for setting timers, color temp, and brightness for any number of connected HALO Home lamps. It also allows scheduling, which is excellent for multiple separate lights.
          However, there are a number of noticeable missing items here:
          No motion detection
          No light detection (sunset/sunrise)
          No dimming setting: only one fixed brightness
          These missing knobs definitely limit what you can do with this lamp.
          SUMMARY
          If you're looking to connect lights, and adjust the brightness & color temperature, then these HALO Home lamps can't be beat. Aside from those specific tweaks, they are short on a number of basic external lighting features, such as motion or light detection. App is easy to use.

          The surfaces are "wrapped" in a sort of vynil-type covering. You cannot paint or stain this. However, if you were to remove the paper, no doubt you could stain/paint the wood underneath.
