I created Bestist to help people just starting out with smart home products. All of my articles are written in a non-techy, beginner friendly, easy to understand way.

About Bob Thom

My first smart product was the Echo Plus gen 1, ever since then my interest in smart home products and technology has grown.

My name is Bob Thomas, a 29 year old living in a small country called Wales.

My favourite smart home products so far include the Ring Pro Doorbell 2, the Deebot 920 robot vacuum and my Amazon Echo devices.
