What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jib doors. Lined up flush with a wall, a jib door lacks the usual door trimwork and prominent hardware (such as exposed hinges) of a typical door. “The purpose of a jib door is to give a wall a seamless appearance,” Boles writes. She recommends using them for situations like in small entryways where a standard door’s appearance would chop up the space too much, or in a wallpapered dining room to create an uninterrupted scene (think wall mural or extensive chinoiserie flowering branches).Boles also points out that decorating icon Albert Hadley cleverly hid a bathroom behind a jib door in the wallpapered hallway in his Manhattan apartment.

"Spotter is an all-purpose indoor sensor package that includes readings for temperature, humidity, light, sound and motion. (Note: It measures motion of the device itself, not in the room.) It connects to the Internet through your home’s Wi-Fi network, and that enables you to control it from anywhere through a smart-phone app. It’s designed to be mounted on a wall or door using screws, magnets or a sticky back, or simply placed on surfaces so that it can be moved around the house. Once the Spotter is in place, a smart-phone app enables you to set up actions and alarms. "
