Home Office/Home Theater Setup and Advice (DC/MD)

Are you doing much more working from home but feel under equipped for the task?

Are you increasingly relying on your TV for entertainment and suddenly wishing you had a nicer viewing experience?

I can help.

As a small business owner and lifetime tech nerd, I have 30-plus years of experience with home entertainment and home office equipment. I have always been the guy my friends and family call on for advice with design, purchase, and setup for their office and entertainment needs. I’m offering the same service to you for hire. Here’s how it works…

Step 1: You reply to this ad with a description of what you are interested in upgrading. Give me an idea of what you’d like to do, your budget range and what space you’re working with. A photo or two of your space would make it easier but isn’t required. The more detail you give, the more we can hone in on exactly what you need.

Step 2: I will send you an email with an Amazon shopping list for you to review and if you’re ok with it, you purchase the items and have them shipped to your home. This way you retain all warranties, instruction manuals and return/exchange privileges.

Step 3: When your equipment is in hand, let me know and I will come set up your space in the most sanitary, COVid-19-era-way possible (mask, gloves, equipment wipe-down).

Step 4: We settle up through Paypal, Venmo, or cash. The setup service from start to finish would be $80/hr with a $300 minimum (the shopping list is included in the minimum). Upon payment you’ll have a 30-day period where I’m available for advice/adjustments.

Here’s what I can do for you:

Recommend equipment and configurations for your specific needs and budget

Unbox, network and set up computers, printers, bluetooth headsets, Tvs, cable boxes, video game systems, universal remotes, stereos, sound bars, monitors, docking stations, scanners, webcams, voice assistants (Alexa) fax machines and much more

Program your remotes and link your electronics where applicable. Briefly tutor and provide notes on how they work.

Set up smart home items such as smart lighting, thermostats, door locks, smart plugs and link them to your personal assistant (Siri or Alexa).

Mount TV and audio equipment or recommend furnishings that work in your situation.

Calibrate and optimize your displays and sound systems to get the maximum benefit from your investment.

Here’s what I don’t do:

Fixing electronics, Software troubleshooting, program installation, mating the analog technology of the 1900s with current digital tech (Like hooking up your record or cassette player to your sound bar or getting your VHS camcorder to work with your computer), deal with your service provider such as Comcast, Verizon, T-Mobile etc., modify your equipment or home beyond the minimum required to mount brackets

If this service is of use to you, reply with your situation and I’d be thrilled to start working on a plan with you.

Ben
