About me

Gio Langella

I'm Gio! I run a YouTube channel called Smart Home Makers and run a blog too. I'm a Software Engineer with a passion for smart home tech. I have been living in a smart home for about 5 years. At one point I had more than 20 Smart Apps on my phone, I since decided to control my smart home with Home Assistant and help people learn this powerful platform. When I was getting started with Home Assistant I struggled to get everything working, but now I feel the need to pass on this knowledge and get more and more people using Home Assistant as their home automation platform.
