We measure our success based on your feedback and try to provide everything you ask us to make your life easier when implementing smart ideas at home.
Who is Justin Micheal?
I’m Justin, owner and lead editor. I’m a family guy in my mid-thirties who has been dabbling with technology since the late ’80s. I’m currently integrating the future into my home.
I used to tinker with electronic toys as a child and then with our first home computer against my parent’s approval.
Those were the days when it was simple to plug a cable in the wrong way and cause things to smoke and catch fire. Don’t worry because most things today only plugin in only one way, are color-coded, and designed to be user-friendly.
My point is that I’ve made mistakes… a lot of mistakes.
Through those mistakes, I’ve developed a better understanding of how things work, what to consider and what to avoid.
How I Got Started
Because smart home technologies are new and constantly evolving, there’s a massive gap of information for people like you and me.
Since I already help friends and family with their tech problems, I thought others could benefit from my knowledge as well. The best part is that by documenting my thoughts on this site, I can easily direct anyone here without having to repeat myself over and over again.
It felt like a no-brainer to share my knowledge and experiences.
However, since starting this project, I’ve realized that I can’t do it all alone. There is just too much information to cover for one person, so I’ve enlisted the help of other tech-savvy friends and bloggers to help out.
How Setting IT Smart Helps You
Stays Updated – One of the challenges of providing information on the latest and greatest is that technology changes quickly. We do our best to provide accurate, up-to-date information as best we can, but keep in mind we’re human too. If we messed up, feel free to let us know here.
Upfront and Honest – We’ll tell you in our product reviews who we think might be the ideal owner of said product and who wouldn’t be. We cover both the good and not so good so that you can make a better-informed decision before investing in any technology for your home.
Offers An Unbiased View – We don’t accept sponsored posts or products. Our editorial picks are of our own choice, and we aim to write impartial and unbiased information so that you can make informed decisions of your own.
Understanding – Technology can be very confusing. We understand that not everyone is going to “get it.” Our guides and reviews use a wide array of media to help make our points simple and easy to follow, but if you’re stuck, don’t forget to leave a comment or question at the bottom of those pages so we can help you further.
Thank you so much for all of your kind words, constructive feedback, and sharing our site with your friends and family!
