How to install the wink hub

Last weekend I saw the future of home automation.

It’s called the Wink Hub.

After some research I bought one for $50.

The Wink Hub allows you to control locks, lights, garage doors, thermostats and more with your smart phone.

It can solve a lot of problems.

For example, not knowing if you closed the garage door while at work or if the lights were left on by kids!!

Today I’ll show you why I got the Hub and how it solved a light issue in my house.

I was a tad bit excited to share this with my wife.

There’s a surprise at the end of the post so don’t miss it :D KEEP READING

Home Repair Tutor Podcast

I’m super excited to announce the Home Repair Tutor podcast.

To celebrate I’m going to give away a pretty sweet power tool, but more on that in a minute.

We’re all just a bit busy these days.

And it’s hard to do research on home improvement, new tools and materials.

So how are you suppose to learn about this stuff?

One way is to listen to my podcast every week!!

Here’s why:

  1. Each episode will discuss a Quick Tip about tools or supplies
  2. You can submit your home improvement question and get an answer on the podcast

I’ll be releasing 3 episodes this week.

New podcasts will come out every Monday and be 8-12 minutes long.

Let me show you how to get the podcast (which is FREE) and enter this week’s give away :D KEEP READING

Remove Hard Water Deposits

Hard water deposits are a pain in the butt.

You typically see them on faucets or shower doors.

I’ve used a cleaning process for years that removes this residue in less than 15 minutes.

And for some reason I didn’t think to share it until Donna (one of our community members) showed me her before and after pictures.

Today’s tutorial is a little over 2 minutes and could make your bathroom cleaning a lot easier :D

How to Wire Light Switches

It can be downright frustrating to do electrical work.

But I found a light switch that’s easy to install and looks awesome.

I almost had my daughter wire this light switch but then imagined what my wife would say!!

If your switches look old and grimy you may need to replace them.

Especially if you want a modern looking home.

Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to install a new switch.

And I’ve got a give away that could literally save your life :D
