Get your cords in check! Whether it is your mouse cable or your telephone line, the Cable Manager is a compact unit that winds up excess cable length so your workspace isn’t cluttered with stray cords. This kit includes four Cable Managers, so you’ll be able to clear up that desk area in no time at all.
The Cable Manager is easy to use. Align the top of the cord guide by rotating the top of the Cable Manager until the base and top form a slit through the middle of the Cable Manager. Insert the cord at its approximate midpoint into the guide. Turn the top of the Cable Manager until the excess cord is inside the unit. That’s it! To unwind, just pull both ends of the cable at the same time.
The Cable Manager is designed for use with electrical cords under the following conditions: <3 amps for 120V AC; <1.5 amps for 200V AC. The device is not recommended for use on electrical appliances such as toasters or hairdryers.

|Review: There are a lot of cable winders on the market but I like this one the best. It has little ratchet-like click stops inside so it won’t unwind unless you pull on the cord.|
|JOLEEN — COTTONWOOD, CA Date: 1/15/2010|
|Review: I have so many cables and cords from all my electronics that I needed a way to separate them. This cable manager is convenient and easy. It is large, for the larger cords such as power cords, not meant for earphone sized cords. Its bulky, but very easy to use and totally worth the price.|

|Review: Exactly as advertized. Handy device for winding up long microphone or network cables – easy to wind and unwind.|

|Review: Great for home security! We can control modules from the kitchen, bedroom, and both cars. It’s nice to turn on lights when arriving home late at night.|
|JOHN — HOUSTON, TX Date: 7/29/2007|
|Review: Perfect absolutely works as I had expected. I had purchased this item from Radio Shack in the past. Radio Shack no longer stocks this item. Over the years I have probably purchased 10 to give as gifts. Radio Shack is no longer stocking this item I will not be doing business with them again. Their batteries for cordless phones do not last. They do not have the selection that Smarthome has. I will be doing my electronic shopping with Smarthome from now on. I AM VERY SINCERE about that. Why don’t you open a store in Houston?|
|WILLIAM — GRANITE BAY, CA Date: 2/16/2007|
|Review: Had one before and works great. Good product|
|MICHAEL — BLOOMINGTON, MN Date: 10/14/2005|
|Review: Really great! Took these to our house in the Cayman islands. I unpacked them and didn’t take the documentations. I was hunting around for the channel setting wheels, couldn’t find them (they don’t have any), and thought I’d bought the wrong product. I went to your website, downloaded the documentation, and found how cool these are — with the auto channel select feature. And, people can turn the lamp on and off with the regular switch if they don’t understand the X10 option. How great is THAT! You guys are wonderful! Thanks|
Dry air can be uncomfortable to breathe and dry out wooden furniture excessively. It also causes an increase in static levels which is especially bad if you like tinkering with electronic devices. Dry air can also cost you more in heating bills because it feels colder than humid air at the same temperature. When you add humidity to your home you can actually feel warmer at 68 degrees than you do at 75 degrees, saving as much as 15% in heating costs.
The ThermoMist is a low maintenance automatic whole-house humidifier suitable for traditional oil or gas fired forced air heating systems. It automatically detects when the heater is blowing and sprays a fine mist into the airflow, and it stops automatically when the airflow stops.
The ThermoMist Automatic Humidifier is easy to install: Simply mount the control box and nozzle to your ductwork and attach it to the water supply with the included saddle valve. Plug the AC adapter into a 110V outlet.
Replacement nozzles and filters are sold separately. Optional humidistat control can be added to shut off the humidifier when desired humidity is reached. You can also plug it into an INSTEON ApplianceLinc (sold separately) for integration into your home automation system.
This product is not recommended in areas where the water has a high mineral content. (Use FreshMist or Turbo Mist systems instead.) Read more

|Review: Works well. I would make 2 suggestions. Do not mount the misting head above your furnace. It will drip a bit so to avoid|

|Dave — New Jersey Date: 6/2/2010|
|Review: I purchased this unit 3 years ago and it has been the best investment for my new townhouse. I followed the maintenance instruction to the T and never have I had a problem. I even went and installed a water filter to be on the safe side. My house is always comfortable.|
How it Works!
The system uses an IR receiver to take in the IR signals from an existing remote control and distribute those signals via IR emitters to A/V components. Point the remote at the IR receiver to send the appropriate commands to your hidden A/V components. The receiver was specifically designed to reduce interference from Plasma, LCD and LED TV screens that cause other IR receiver systems to fail.
Interference from your wall mounted TV can limit the effectiveness of your IR control system. The Smarthome LCD Compatible IR Receiver Kit has been designed to suppress various types of interference, including Plasma, LCD and LED TVs, indirect sunlight and energy-saving light bulbs.
The kit allows you to use an existing infrared (IR) remote control to operate up to eight audio/video (A/V) components located behind closed doors or walls in an entertainment cabinet or equipment closet. The built-in IR distribution technology gives you the ability to conceal, yet still control, bulky electronic equipment such as a cable or satellite TV receiver, stereo receiver or amplifier, CD player, DVD player, Blu-ray player, or virtually any component controlled by an IR signal. The compact brass IR sensor will fit into a pre-drilled 16mm hole for a flush mount, peep-hole style installation, and even features interchangeable colored bezels (white, black and brass) to blend in with your home décor. The IR receiver kit also features a sense input which can let you know if an external A/V device is on or off.
This kit comes with everything needed for a complete IR repeater system. No more leaving cabinet doors open or struggling to remotely access your hidden equipment, you’ll be able to control up to eight hidden A/V components with extreme reliability. Read more

|Review: The product was exactly as ordered and shipped promptly. I decided it was not going to suit my needs and the return process was very smooth and quick. Thank you once again for a great buying experience.|
|KAMI — CHARLESTON, WV Date: 2/17/2011|
|Review: This product works just as described. Now we do not have to guess when our Beagle is at the front door wanting out. We just laid a rug over it and it works like a charm. The only thing I don’t like is trying to hide the chime pack that is attached to the mat.|
Make sure your lawn and garden plants are watered with a programmable timed sprinkler system that can be set up on your PC and controlled with any INSTEON or X10 controller. The INSTEON/X10 8-Zone Sprinkler Controller is an 8-zone irrigation unit capable of controlling up to eight sprinkler valves either individually or in program sequences in response to single INSTEON or X10 command from your PC or a standalone home automation controller. This irrigation controller will work with any standard 24V AC sprinkler system (sold separately), and a free software download is available for easy programming. The Controller requires a 24V AC transformer (sold separately) to power the sprinkler solenoid valves.
While basic functions can be programmed manually, advanced functionality can be programmed with the EZSrve, central automation controller. If you already have a central automation controller or a software package for your INSTEON network that doesn’t have the correct parameters to program the advanced functionality of this device, you can download the free Simplehomenet Utility Suite which works in conjunction with an INSTEON Powerlinc Modem (2412U, 2413U or 2413S). If you need PC-free operation for simple timers, the SHN Utility Suite also interfaces with the INSTEON Powerlinc Controller. Read more
|Doug — Frisco, Texas Date: 6/3/2011|
|Review: Works great. My sprinkler controller went out and it was a simple task to connect my existing sprinkler valves to this. I wanted something with more flexibility which I got when I combined this with my Home Control Assistant also sold by SmartHome.|
|MATTHEW — SEGUIN, TX Date: 5/26/2011|
|Review: Easy control with Indigo.|
|BENJAMIN — DANE, WI Date: 3/31/2011|
|Review: Seemed to link up just fine with my ISY99 controller. I did have to download the SimpleHomeNet utility, and connect a serial cable to my PowerLinc modem so that I could update the configuration to convert zone 8 to a pump. (So, now zone 8 comes on when ANY zone comes on, to drive my pump) This was for well water, I might add.|
Do you live in an area where water conservation through high-efficiency showerheads has been considered impossible due to low- or variable-pressure water?
The Oxygenics Spa Series Chrome Showerhead uses 2.5 gallons per minute at 60 psi without “low-flow” restrictors, so you can conserve water without sacrificing a great shower. All Oxygenics showerheads are designed to save 30 to 70 percent of the water used by traditional shower fixtures. Other low-flow showerheads simply restrict water flow. The Oxygenics X-Stream Showerhead has 16 air intake ports through which air enters, is mixed with water and accelerated out. The result: an enriched shower with up to 10 times more beneficial air/oxygen that improves circulation, stimulates cell activity and promotes healthier, more youthful-looking skin. The shower head’s comfort control lever lets you adjust the spray from “soft” to “stimulating” for a custom shower experience. Oxygenics showerheads fit all standard showers; no plumber is required for installation, which is made easy and leak-proof with the included Teflon tape. With a core made of Dupont Delrin®, the Oxygenics Showerhead is extraordinarily durable and resistant to most typical showerhead problems. It will never scale, clog or fail, whether it’s your first shower, or your 100,000th. It even comes with a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty.Read more

|BRIAN — HUBERTUS, WI Date: 2/10/2010|
|Review: The spray pattern is a bit sporadic but the watter pressure is superb.|
|NEIL — FLORISSANT, MO Date: 8/18/2008|
|Review: As delivered, the shower head restricted flow drastically. After popping out the center cone and spring and screwing out the center ring, it became a great shower head at the low pressure my rural well pump delivers.|
|PATRICIA — DEATSVILLE, AL Date: 2/1/2008|
|Review: Although we live in a log home, our water pressure is miserable. So, when we saw the “XStream Showerhead” in an ad, the idea was to try it out. This thing WORKS! We love it and have told friends about it. I’d recommend it to anybody in a heartbeat. It’s easy to install, it works from the start. Thank you, Smarthome!!|
