‘Smart Home – Home Tech products better Your Life! Make it easier, more comfortable… more awesome!’ With the right home tech items, -gadgets and -tools: Your Home – will become a Smart-Home! Your house a Smart House! Let me share my story with you and help you on your fascinating journey to an easier and more convenient life.
It all started as a simple blog, but things changed quite quickly. Now:
According to Onalytica we are among the
TOP 100 INFLUENCERS in the Smart Home – Home Tech (Gadgets) Niche.
How I got addicted to: Home Automation – SmartHome or often called: Hometech?
During the last 7 years I have gained a lot of experience in trying to create my perfect-idea of a Smart House. What I was achieving in the first place was the knowledge, that “the products that should make my Life – easier” are often not at all easy to install, easy to control and – lot of them are quite expensive. Even when you manage to install everything properly – sometimes my purchased products refused to communicate with each other. For Short: I bought Home Tech gadgets for my home automation plan that did not match!
Clue to this – I needed more detailed research before buying Smart home – Home Tech products to avoid these mistakes in the future. And just then I was realizing how expensive my whole system will be and that I would not be able to realize my full home-automation plan in one single stroke. At that time I was a student, studying architecture and making my living with part time jobs to afford my little apartment. I had do divide my Masterplan in different logical stages.
So I decided to make “one great plan”. Starting with the questions:
- ‘How should my desired idea of a perfect Smart Home look like?’
- ‘What advantages should the Home Tech products provide?’
- ‘How would these products improve the convenience and style of our all day family life?’ Or even better:
- ‘How would it feel, living in my dream home automation Smart House?’
- ‘Can Home Automation save me money?’
- ‘How would I and my family benefit from all this?’
Oh, I forgot to introduce the rest of my family. I am married with my beautiful (non – I really MEAN NON(!) technical at all) wife and we have two 5 and 1 year old sons.
My son is the greatest fan of my “great plan”! And my wife … hmm, let’s say she always “helps me to get to the bottom of …. WHY DO WE NEED THIS EXTRA GADGET?” – maybe you know what I mean.
Over the last years I learned a lot about Home-Automation. I even learned that in my opinion the term itself is basically wrong. Not everything is about automation. A lot of the possibilities, these (let’s call them Smart home or Home Tech-Gadgets do nothing automated. But they can improve your Life massively. For example power-sockets with integrated usb-charging, or a lot of these little things that I control manually via my smartphone or iPhone.
Smart Home – the Great Plan
Finally things went in the right direction!
– I´ve done a lot of extra work during the last years, even had two jobs at once to afford a lot of these Smart-Gadgets and apply them to my Smart Home – Home-tech-Grid, wich already existed.
I found out what works together and how to save money. How to integrate normal things in Smart Home-Projects. And Step-by-Step I am about to reach the fulfillment of the once set up “Great Plan”.
Or better to say: I ‘would’ reach the fulfillment when there would not always be something brand new or better than the version before. ‘That is another lesson I had to learn – for me the journey is the destination’ – and the FUN!
Always looking for something NEW, something better … something mind-blowing. And this is where this site started as a little blog about my passion. Now, I want to help people with the same idea or desire to build their Smart Home or simply discover amazing inventions and cool gadgets.
