After struggling for years with the way my house was configured, I started thinking about what I could do to improve it. I realized that a friend of mine was all about home automation, so I turned to him to ask what I could do. He had some really fantastic ideas about automating things, and before I knew it, things were moving along incredibly well. We were able to install a video doorbell, and we even created a rock-solid security system that met all of our needs. I wanted to start a blog all about technology, home security, and automation.
