We founded Make a Smart Home in 2020 – because something good had to happen. Our founding editor, Simon Handby, is a technology journalist with 16 years’ experience of reviews, features and help articles.

How is Make a Smart Home funded?

We’re an independent site, funded entirely by advertising content and referral programmes. We may earn a commission when you click on referral links and buy products. We do not currently run sponsored content – if we do in future, it will always be clearly marked as such.

As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases.

Can I trust Make a Smart Home?

We have strict rules about accepting products for review. We never accept payment for reviewing products or services on our website. After testing, we always aim to return review samples or – by arrangement – donate them to charitable causes.

Our reviews are unbiased, and based on our own testing and experience. Manufacturers who submit products for review do so on the understanding that they may not influence the review content, other than to correct factual errors.

How can I report an error?

It’s important that our content is as accurate as possible. If you spot an error – or you need to tell us about anything else – please get in touch. Thank you!
