Welcome, dear visitor! If you’re reading this, it means you’re interested in our story and curious about our endeavors.
In 2015, our family joyfully purchased a small house in Mississauga, Ontario, becoming proud first-time homeowners. We were filled with excitement, knowing that we no longer had to rent and could finally create a cozy and inviting home. My wife took charge of enhancing the interior design, utilizing her expertise in furniture, curtains, carpets, bedding, and other decorative elements.
Inspired to contribute to the home improvement project, I embarked on an ambitious endeavor of making our home smart. This idea stemmed from our desire for comfort, safety, and cost-effective living.
To begin, I started with simple steps. I meticulously replaced all the outdated halogen, incandescent, and fluorescent bulbs in every room with energy-efficient LEDs. As the temperatures dropped, we decided to replace the old-fashioned thermostat with an Ecobee 3, marking the introduction of our first smart home device.
Month by month, I gradually replaced traditional switches with dimmers, regular LED bulbs with smart LED bulbs, and standard plugs with smart plugs. The following year, we installed a smart video doorbell at the front door and later added one to the back door as well.
By our third year in the house, I had successfully transformed it into a fully retrofitted and automated smart home. The entire house boasted smart lighting, temperature/humidity/motion sensors, smoke/water leak detectors, video surveillance, door locks, garage openers, voice assistants, and various other accessories.
As a regular DIY enthusiast, I managed to install all the smart home devices myself. Additionally, I experimented with different brands and products, allowing me to compare their advantages and disadvantages and occasionally return them after a less-than-ideal experience.
A Family Hobby
Five years ago my wife proposed, “Let’s create our own website!” She is truly a generator of ideas, often leading us to make significant breakthroughs that reshape our lives. In a single day, we decided to launch a website that assists people in purchasing high-quality smart home devices.
Our Choices and Offerings
As an Apple-oriented family, our smart home primarily revolves around the HomeKit platform. However, 95% of our accessories can be controlled and monitored remotely via iOS, Android, or the web. Moreover, one of my requirements for any device is voice support from popular home assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Siri. The ideal scenario is when a smart device offers universal compatibility.
If you’re financially well-off, you may not bother scouring the internet for smart home deals. However, if you’re looking to save a few dollars, you’ve come to the right place. While you could visit a large electronics store nearby to purchase a range of smart devices, our online outlet always offers competitive and lower prices for the same products. As a small supplier, we sell a limited number of products and do not charge provincial taxes.
Superior Quality and Secure Shopping
Every product listed on our website has been carefully selected for its premium quality, reliability, manufacturer warranty, and technical support. Most of our offerings also support multiple platforms and automation services, including iOS and Android apps, Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa voice skills, Google Assistant, IFTTT, Wink, Nest, Yonomi, and more.
Enhancing Home Living
After six years of relishing the benefits of an automated smart home, we can confidently say that it’s truly worth a try. Once you acquire your first smart home device, you’ll quickly develop a fondness for it and incorporate it into your daily life. Alternatively, you can program it to operate independently according to your routines.
