          The reason I got this Kasa smart bulb is because it doesn’t require a dedicated hub to work - the bulb itself just connects to your router, and then you control the bulb via a smartphone app. Also, I really like that each bulb can be on a separate schedule, so that when I’m out of town it doesn’t look like all the lights are coming on at the same time. I installed this bulb in a table lamp in my front living room and set at 4000K color temp, which is definitely more of a bright, daylight color temp than the warmer 2700K bulbs that are available - the higher color temp is better for the vivid colors in my living room artwork and decor. Even when dimmed to 20%, it doesn’t appear to flicker Read More

Even when dimmed to 20%, it doesn’t appear to flicker like some dimmable LEDs.
          The app is fairly intuitive. I used the app to set the bulb to turn on at 40% brightness before dawn, turn off at sunrise, turn on again at sunset, and turn off at a fixed time. My only complaints about the app are: (1) it sometimes loses the ability to display the schedule for a particular bulb, which means I have to wait and try again later if I want to change the schedule - and that’s annoying, and (2) once the bulb is set up, I can’t view/change the wifi network it’s using (I have a dual-channel router, and sometimes I decide to change networks for certain devices based on how far they are from the router, by trial and error). So basically, this is a great bulb with a marginal app. Read Less

          Kasa Smarts dimmable light bulb has a dimming range from 1% to 100%. Set the right brightness for any mood or activity. Turn your bulb to full brightness to get your kids up in the morning or dim it enough for them to fall asleep at night.

          This light puts all other grow lights I’ve tried to shame. Every year I plant seeds in the spring, and watch them get long and spindly before I can plant them in my outdoor Zone 4 garden. This is the first light that has produced seedlings that are not spindly - they’re actually robust and stout compared to ones from previous years with lower-intensity lights. I’m using it currently for greens, mainly spinach and arugula, and have the light set to vegetative mode. I look forward to trying it out next fall/winter in flowering mode for indoor flowers. I do wish that the hanging system had more attachment points, as it took some balancing to get it to hang just right.
          Pros: Eco-Friendly, Very Bright, vegetative vs. flowering modes

          Í got two sets of this edging to put around some new trees in my yard, where I wanted to create a mulched area around the tree and have some edging between the mulch and the surrounding grass. This worked well for that purpose. The edging definitely holds its shape, and since it is packaged in a roll, I had to put it out in the sun (on a very sunny day) and use rocks to hold it flat. When I installed it it still had some curl to it, which was ok for my purposes since it was a circular area, but I think it might have been more difficult to install in a straight line. Although this comes with a few stakes, I used ¼”-thick, 12’ long aluminum stakes that I had on hand and bent in half to hold Read More

          Answer: 
          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.

          Answer: 
          I'd recommend getting a new faucet as it would be easier than drilling new 8" holes for your old faucet. If you want an 8" faucet though, you could certainly drill new holes (if you have proper tools and skills) and then get an ecutcheon to cover the old holes.
