Founder and Editor (and President): Art Feierman
Bio: Art has been involved in “home automation” and related, for over 40 years – going back to having had an BSR X10 system in the 70s. He also worked with DMX controllers also in the late ‘70s in designing disco/nightclub lighting in Philly – although, not for home use). In more modern times, he again used DMX controllers for specialty lighting in a small waterfall in his last home in CA, along with other products using Wifi, Zigbee, Z-Wave and Bluetooth. In addition to writing about the Smart Home, Art has been putting smart home/home automation in his houses going back to 2000, much of that featured within these pages. That includes doing his home theaters with smart projectors, motorized screens and shades, programmable remote controls…
Background: SmarterHomeAutomation is one of multiple websites Art has launched over the past 28 years. A true “early adopter” he launched his first website – PresentingSolutions.com
in early 1995 (back when there were only about 3000 dot coms in the world). That site was the first online site to sell projectors for business and home, and a two time INC 500 company. In 2003 he launched ProjectorReviews.com
, (the name says it all), which he sold in 2020, leaving SmarterHomeAutomation the largest of his remaining websites.
SmarterHomeAutomation relies on contractors for all the writing Art doesn’t do himself, as well use of contractors for other aspects of the business. Three important people are associated with the website and its holding company (The Metaverse Resource LLC).
Lori Feierman: Handles the organization, and business operations side
Nikki Kahl: Nikki has been writing for SmarterHomeAutomation – and ProjectorReviews before that, now for about a decade. She has also produced most of both sites videos and custom graphics. She’s a talented contractor who works on many projects for multiple organizations, and is also a hard core gamer, so gets the opportunity to write pieces relating to gaming – which plug in nicely with SmarterHomeAutomation. Case in point her recent article comparing two high quality, large, gaming monitors – one from Samsung one from LG.
Ryan Staller: Ryan’s company NetOne360 has been handling our company’s SEO, Social Media, and document assembly (and before that, the same for ProjectorReviews). Ryan also acts as an advisor, relating to online marketing.
Ryan, and Nikki, have been invaluable contributors to the success of Art’s websites over the past decade plus.
Cast of Characters: Several other contractors have written multiple and various reviews and trend pieces for SmarterHomeAutomation over the years, but none have the long term active involvement of Nikki and Ryan.

We’re a small company, so that answering questions about products by phone takes a lot of resources – more than we can spare!
As a result, we do not accept phone calls from visitors to our site. Sorry about that, we’re just not built for end user support.
