Welcome to the ReallyCleverHomes website

About my website

martin-durhamI have been working on home technology and home improvement projects (both on my own properties and those of clients) for over 25 years. I created the first ReallyCleverHomes website in 2003 and it quickly became a moderately successful online retail website. In early 2016 I decided that it was time for a rethink about the website’s direction and it is currently undergoing something of a makeover, details of which you’ll find on this page.

My blueprint for a really clever home

bigstock-rolls-of-architecture-blueprin-89721275My blueprint for a really clever home is a set of 26 articles that I am currently writing about what I think a really clever home should be. Topics covered include home entertainment, telecoms, networking, water, energy, lighting, safety, security, waste disposal, cleaning, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning. For each article I have identified relevant product categories which form the basis for the content of my product guide.

My product guide

bigstock-Commercial-Concept-With-Barcod-34655312My product guide contains detailed descriptions of hundreds of products, arranged into over 100 product categories (which are activated as product descriptions are added to them). New products are added on an almost daily basis with descriptions written to my own ‘in-house’ structure to make it easier for you to find the right product. Some products described in the product guide can be purchased direct from my online shop.

My buyers’ guides

bigstock-Shopping-in-supermarket-Shopi-75264172My intention is to create buyers’ guides for all of the categories in my product guide. These are designed to help you understand the main issues associated with any given product category so that you can make an educated decision when it comes to choosing the best products for your needs.
