Travel and Beaches and Home Automation - Oh My!
Alright, this may be a long shot but potentially a fun opportunity for a home-automation enthusiast who’s up for a bit of adventure.
I want to hire someone to assist me on a DIY residential low voltage wiring project in Honolulu, Hawaii, in mid to late April. I’ll pay for your flights (from the U.S.), hotel, rental car + $400/day for five days. Stay longer for a real vacation? Bring your partner along? I’m happy to help accommodate whatever works for you.
Why in the heck would I do this? The pandemic hit us right after we finished demolition on a residential remodel. After a long pause, we’re now putting the house back together, but our budget has been wiped out. Probably because we live among multi-million dollar properties, the home automation companies here want $10-20k just for wiring and $50-100k for high-end proprietary equipment that I probably wouldn’t want even if I could afford it.
You must have experience planning and installing DIY-friendly residential networking, PoE security cameras, ceiling speakers, automation controls, and so on. However, the actual equipment will mostly come later. I only need your help in planning, ahead of time and on-site, and to work with me to run all wiring necessary now and for future expansion. I hope your experience will guide us in the best directions and avoid mistakes that I might make on my own.
Let me know if you’re interested, and we can talk further.
