          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.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Stylish

          We spend 90% of our time indoors. Measuring our Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is one of the most important steps we can take in preventing illness and increasing productivity, energy and good health. Airthings, the IAQ specialists and experts in Radon, created the Airthings Wave Plus the first smart IAQ monitor with Radon detection, designed for homes and all populated spaces. It is the perfect solution for homeowners, employers and facility managers to gain full visibility into six indoor air factors; Radon, carbon dioxide (CO2), airborne chemicals (TVOCs), humidity, temperature and air pressure. Airthings Wave Plus includes a free app (iOS/Android) and an online dashboard with advanced analytics options.

          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

          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.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Nothing fancy here.
          So on the plus side, this rack holds belts & ties, as advertised.
          But that's pretty much it. The hooks are spaced much too close for any decent sized belt buckle. They are also kind of flimsy, and feel like they could break off quite easily if you pulled too hard. But the worst part is the ends of the hooks. They are flat cut metal, and although painted, still have much too sharp edges. Not that you'll cut yourself on them, but sharp enough to snag some strands off of your best tie, or a passing garment. They should have been at least tipped with some rubber.
          SUMMARY:
          If you're desperate for a belt/tie rack, this one will do the job. But just barely.

          These sheets have a nice color and a nice pattern. Everything else just feels cheap. They are thin and definitely not the best quality. They are also not especially soft. When i opened up the packaging, i was blown away by the stench that emanated from the brand new sheets. It was a pretty noticeable chemical smell, probably some sort of anti-flammable treatment and especially not something i'd want to be breathing in all night. The sheets most definitely needed a good wash before using for the first time.
          And one last kicker, was that the front of the packaging clearly shows two pillow cases. However, the back lists only one in the package. Deceiving!

          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.
