- I'm a big fan of these guys. I was shopping for some speakers and an amp, and went to a couple of stores, and was mostly told "No, that's not what you want", and the presented with all of these wacky ideas (like ceiling-mounted speakers, or recessed wall speakers covered by a mesh cloth). I went to Hawthorne and they hooked up a system just like I wanted. They answered a ton of questions, helped recommend other vendors I needed, and the gear I ended up with sounds amazing. "A pretty nice place" indeed.
- Greg showed up at my house, climbed into our (hot) attic, and did a beautiful job installing an antenna. This saves huge $$$$ every month instead of using cable, and I can still watch the Seahawks. He did a nice job communicating before and after the job as well. Highly recommended.
The HDMI cable for my home theater broke. I need someone to either fix the end connector which broke or run a new cable through the wall.

Something small like that might be a good job for Capitol Hill handyman? Alternately you can probably purchase your own cable, protect the end with tape, and use the existing bad cable to pull the new cable through the wall...
Agreed - start with a handyman or try to do it yourself. I'm not great at this, but I've managed to pull a cable or two. It's not too hard, assuming there is some room in the wall. Google "how to pull cable". If you need a true home automation professional, I recommend Wipliance. They can fix your whole setup no matter how complicated, including hardware, electrical, etc for $$$.
Have had the same issue and thought about doing it myself and was told it was not hard but this was not encouraging - instructables.com/Repair-a-... We were having some electrical work done anyways and the electrician was able to pull the cable through the drywall. Better off paying a professional :)
Hi, friends. Hoping someone in my network has some guidance on getting a home security system in place. Do you have a company that you’re happy wit...

I wanted to install my own (and integrate it with some home automation stuff) so I got an Abode. I'm pretty happy with it!
@blockwatch security is good and way less expensive than adt...
If you don’t want to pay for ongoing service, we have been really happy with Arlo. Wireless cameras, rechargeable batteries, monitored and operated through a phone app. The service included with purchase doesn’t have a monthly bill. The cameras are motion sensitive and capture 15 seconds of video when triggered (including at night, infrared). A week of video clips are maintained by the company, which you can download and save.
