About Us

MissingRemote is a home for “smart” technology products, gadgets, Electric Vehicles (EV), and news. Historically our primary focus has been connected home, home theater, and networking. Like it, or not, the world is getting blanketed with computers and sensors (i.e. the bits that make things smart). We love it, most of the time, so we’ve recently branched out to cover other areas where “smart” products are enhancing the user experience beyond traditional areas in the home. All that said, “smart” is a focus point, not a hard limit, our editors have immense freedom to cover topics that interest them.

Andrew has been with MissingRemote since August, 2009. A longtime home theater enthusiast, he got started with HTPC in 1999 after installing a DVD-ROM drive and pulling A/V cables from the office to the TV – been a wild ride since. Andrew is interested in all sorts of smart technology, home networking, automation, and fitness technology (mostly focused on running and cycling).
