If you are interested in having your hardware or installed software with a one time fee (hereafter known as Product) or hosted software, website, mobile app or other internet based offering not involving a Product (hereafter known as Service) reviewed in written or video format (Review) by the DIY Smart Home Guy™ (Reviewer), here are the Review guidelines:

Please send a message with the details of the product or service for which Provider wishes a Review.
No promotional consideration will be accepted by Reviewer for a Review. No exceptions.
Provider will supply Product(s) to the Reviewer at no cost, including shipping, for the purpose of the Review, and if Providers Service is a paid Service, Provider will supply the Service for free to Reviewer for an agreed upon period (Review Period) for the purpose of the Review. Reviewer, at his sole discretion, can keep, use, install, discard, gift or sell the Product after a Review is posted on any or all of the following media outlets: YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter.
Reviewer agrees not to transfer or allow access to Services during or after the Review Period by anyone other than the Reviewer.
Should the Reviewer determine that a Review will not be published, Provider will be notified, and at such time an agreement will be reached with regards to the return or disposal of the Product, or the discontinuation of the Service. If Products are to be returned, Provider is responsible for any and all return shipping charges. If Provider is unwilling to pay for return shipping, Provider agrees that the Reviewer is under no obligation to return the Product.
Regardless of the circumstances, Reviewer is under no obligation to publish a Review.
Reviewer will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that the Review will be an honest reflection of the opinion of the Reviewer, and the Reviewer is under no obligation to make positive or negative comments about any Product or Service.
Provider can make suggestions for attributes to be discussed in the Review and the attributes Provider believes are related to the value of the Product or Service, and the Reviewer will make reasonable efforts to relay those attributes within the Review. However, Reviewer is under no obligation to mention any attribute or feature of the Product or Service, nor is Reviewer under any obligation to agree with Providers quality or claims about a Product or Service. Reviewer reserves the right to use other Products or Services in the Review for comparison or other purposes deemed appropriate by the Reviewer.
Reviewer reserves the right to post affiliate links for the purchase of your Product or Service or other Products and Services within the Review on any of Reviewer’s associated websites or social media accounts. All revenue generated by Reviewers affiliate links remain the property of Reviewer.
Provider agrees that Reviewer retains all rights to the Review and agrees to make no claims against Reviewer for the content of the Review. Provider further agrees that it will hold Reviewer harmless of any and all claims and agrees that the resolution to any dispute is limited to the removal of Review from those media outlet accounts that are under the sole control of the Reviewer. Provider agrees that if a video is copied and/or republished by a company, entity, person or persons and published or posted in any form, that the Reviewer is not responsible and will have no obligation to have the Review removed from publication.
