You also get notifications via iOS when the door locks and unlocks, helping you stay aware of who's coming and going. Though the Premis is a new product, it builds off the hardware designed for the Kevo, a lock that gave me fits when it was released. Unnecessarily bulky, the casing that housed the earlier lock's electronics was hard to affix to my door.

The Premis has no such flaws, with a reduced footprint above my doorknob and a one-wire installation that took minutes. I used to dream that I could go for a run with my iPhone and leave my jangling keys behind. Now I can do it without a phone, thanks to the Premis' keypad access.

When Barack Obama moved into the White House in 2009, he had the tennis court at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave converted into a basketball court. In this bit of home improvement was as much symbolism as you wanted to see. A space that formerly hosted a sport of the ruling class was now also dedicated to one played across lines of race and income. SEE ALSO: My high school teammate, Kobe Bryant Basketball was many things for President Obama. It was an escape, a lifelong pastime and a key element to the narrative that propelled his meteoric rise. His funky lefty jumpshot and his steadfast dedication to hooping in sweatpants even became pillars of the mystique surrounding The Cool POTUS. Read more... More about Nba , Sports , and Entertainment
