On the list of awesome things you can put in your house, I think we can all agree that secret passageways are pretty high up there. It doesn’t matter if you’re six or sixty-five — The floor plan for your “fantasy house”undoubtedly has a couple hidden doorways in it. If it doesn’t, there’s something wrong with you.

But here’s the thing — you don’t actually have to hold out for your fantasy house in order to get a secret passageway anymore. Thanks to Utah-based furniture company Murphy Door, you can easily install a hidden doorway in your house right now, without having to win the lottery and build a custom-made mansion with your winnings.

Murphy Door makes a line of wooden shelving kits designed to fit into door jambs and other spaces. Once installed, the system look like your run-of-the-mill shelving units — but with a quick tug, they swing open like a door. Special double-swing hinges allow the shelves/doors to hold up to 250 pounds, and their inconspicuous design will make them essentially invisible to the unsuspecting eye.

The doors (shelves?) are currently available in three different styles, each of which are available in a range of different woods and finishes. Pricing varies depending on your choice of size, style, and material, but most configurations fall between the range of $1,000 and $1,600.

Happy hiding!

Next-Level Autonomously Flying Indoor Security Camera | Ring Always Home Cam
Yes, your voice assistant-powered smart home can provide plenty of ways for you and yours to manage your residence while you're on the go. But sometimes what we need the most is an extension of our own two eyes. Security cameras go a long way in solving this problem, but no matter the degree of panning and tilting that your home surveillance gear can muster, a camera is a stationary product, relegated to only one room in your home unless you move it to another. If only there were a way to get eyes on the whole home without investing in a full-fledged security system.
Thanks to Ring, now there is. We caught our first glance of the Ring Always Home Cam last year, and we finally have word on a release date for the $250 security drone. Those interested in buying it can sign up for an early invitation right now, according to an announcement at Amazon's annual fall September event, though it's unclear when it'll ship if you're invitation is accepted. Here's everything you need to know about the Ring Always Home Cam.
