          In our community we occasionally have solicitors and other people come to our front door. We wanted a way to be able to see who it is without having to answer the door. Many neighbors have had trouble with the sensitivity settings on their door bell camera systems causing them to go off every time a car goes by. I saw this camera as a solution to our problem and it really is once I found out how to set it up.

          In our community we occasionally have solicitors and other people come to our front door. We wanted a way to be able to see who it is without having to answer the door. Many neighbors have had trouble with the sensitivity settings on their door bell camera systems causing them to go off every time a car goes by. I saw this camera as a solution to our problem and it really is once I found out how to set it up. The camera came well packaged, but it didn't have any instructions, so I had to search the YI website which is https://www.yitechnology.com/yi-outdoor-camera. Those instructions were to install the YI app, enter your wifi network and password, plug in the camera, connect your camera to your wifi system and them scan the bar code that the app produces. After that you need to select the settings that work for you for sensitivity and detection area. The camera itself is weatherproof, is night vision capable, has two way audio, a wide field of vision, and has 1080 HD quality. It comes with a 3 meter cable, but because the cable needs to be plugged into a USB port that is included to plug into the house's electric current it sticks out from the outlet quite a bit. I replaced the USB transformer with a smaller one because of that. Included in the box are the wall fasteners to route the cable to the outlet. Once installed you can move the camera on its swivel to point in the direction you want it to watch for you. You can add a Micro SD card to record alert audio on continuous loop or you can pay for a cloud account. The audio from the camera is very good. To send audio to the camera you have to hold down the mic button on your cell phone to talk to the person the camera is alerting you about. Also one of the setting is to have a alarm sound sent from the camera when it detects motion. We are still learning how to adjust the sensitivity so that bugs at night don't cause the camera to set off the alarms. Other than that we are very pleased with his new monitoring system for our house. . Read Less
          Pros: Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Lots of Features, Motion-Activated, Nice Design, weather proof, wide field of vision, two way audio
          Cons: No Instructions

          As beautiful as they are comfortable. Aqua Shield commercial grade floor mats, offered in a variety of styles, sizes and colors, are the best solution to trap dirt and moisture. The molded design will not crush or breakdown over time or use. Our Aqua Shield mats are slip resistant. Color: Camel.

          We have a lot of evergreen trees such as pine, hemlock and spruce that drop needles and other things that get into your shoe tread, so we were looking for a good door mat that would keep us from tracking all that into the house. This door mat does a great job of catching it. The texture of the surface as you can see in the closeup picture below is the perfect height and coarseness to catch it. The mat is a good size at 24 in x 36 in and is listed as a Camel color. The texture on the bottom of it keeps it from slipping while you clean your shoes off and if your shoes are wet it traps the moisture from soaking through onto your floor. This door mat is a perfect solution for our problem.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Effective, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, slip proof, moisture barrier

          As video quality has increased on new TVs in order to be able to see the improvement you need high quality HDMI cables. When I saw these I was glad to be able to get exactly what I needed to go along with the new TV and DVD player that we have. Because they are on different sides of our entertainment cabinet we needed not only the 4K Ultra HD ready cables to match our FIOS TV service, but they needed to be at least 6 feet long, so 8 feet gave us more options for running them to the our equipment. They also have dual grip cable heads to ensure that we have strong connections with our equipment that won't slip out when you pull equipment forward on the shelves.
          Pros: Great Sound Quality, great video quality, long length, slip proof connectors, 4k ultra hd ready

          I was surprised by how easily and quickly I was able to install this good looking black knob with just a screwdriver on our bedroom door giving us the privacy we wanted. See pictures below. It can be unlocked or locked from inside the bedroom door. The outside knows can be unlocked using an emergency key we placed above the door frame. The Black Iron provides a rich and solid look to the knob. It fits both right handed and left handed doors. The latch has 2 interchangeable faceplates, round corner and square corner. One of the other nice things about it is it comes with a lifetime mechanical and finish warranty.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Nice Design

          Stylishly decorate a sitting or reading space with Globe Electric's Delilah torchiere floor lamp and reading light. Standing at 72 in. the torchiere provides a steady dose of effective lighting to small or medium spaces such as apartment living rooms, rec rooms or college dorm rooms. A three-step dimmer allows you to change the brightness level of the up light torchiere with ease. The reading light is on an adjustable gooseneck so you can move it around to your desired placement - use it to read your favorite book or magazine or use it to highlight your favorite piece of art! With a matte black finish, the Delilah lamp adds a modern touch to every room. Place it in the corner of a living room for mood lighting, next to a tall bookshelf to help showcase a collection, or even in a three-season porch or bedroom for additional light as required. Separate on/off switches complete the design, allowing you to turn the reading light on or off as needed or to dim the torchiere as you see fit. Simply put, the Delilah torchiere floor lamp and reading light is the ideal functional and stylish lamp.

          This floor lamp provides an excellent source of light especially in so many of today's rooms that don't have a ceiling light. Its also great for reading since that light is adjustable It was very easy to assemble in just a few minutes. The matte black finish looks great and works well with almost any color furniture as you can see in the pictures below. The light bulbs are not included but the main light can be up to 150W while the reading light is a 40W bulb. There is a three-step dimmer to change the brightness level of the up light.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Nice Design, Very Bright

          We assembled the fire pit and are overall pleased with the product. However, there are places, mostly on the sides of the blocks, that the cement is visible as there is no paint. We are interested in getting paint in order to touch up these spots of missing paint. Is there matching paint for this pit that we can get? Thank you!
