Your opportunity to show off your smart home!

Hi folks,

I wanted to pass this along to anyone who would be interested in showing off their smart home. All the details are below from the CBS Interactive team. I do hope a few of our CNET members get picked for this. It's a pretty awesome opportunity! Good luck folks!



Do you have a Smart Home you’d like to show off? CBS Interactive is looking for homeowners and/or renters who are PROUD enough of their Smart Home systems that they’re willing to SHOW THEM OFF!

Have you spent a pretty penny on Smart Home-style renovations or systems that bring ease-of-use, automation, additional safety measures, utility and/or maintenance cost savings and style to your home? If so, we want to showcase you and your home! We're targeting people who have shown creativity, ingenuity and forward thinking in the systems they’ve designed and installed -- beyond that, we also want to see how they’re used in daily life.

CBS Interactive has partnered with a major online real estate marketplace to create a series of short, documentary-style videos that showcase people in and around New York City who have taken the idea of the Smart Home and have successfully (and stylishly!) implemented it fully into their own lives.

To be considered, please send the following items to ...
- Photos of each room in your home where you've installed Smart Home technology

- A brief list of the technology you've successfully installed and implemented

- Portrait photograph of yourself (and any other member of your household willing to speak on-camera about the technology in your Smart Home)

- a 15-second video of you (and any other member of your household willing to speak on-camera about the technology in your Smart Home) speaking about why we should select you and your home to be showcased in the series

Incentives for appearing to be negotiated later in the recruiting process.

We look forward to hearing from you!

CBS Interactive team
