"To me, a truly smart home is as beautiful as it is intelligent— the gadgets fade into the background and you just feel like life is easier."
Carley Knobloch is on a mission to help people improve their relationship with technology, one tap or swipe at a time. She's a digital lifestyle expert, helping her loyal followers find tech that helps them save time, money and sanity. Scripps Networks tapped her to host the walkthroughs of the very first HGTV Smart Home 2013, which meant she got to do what she loves best: Play with gadgets in a pretty house.
Since then Carley has become the go-to expert for HGTVRemodels.com, exploring the intersection of home and tech on series like Home Control, coverage of CEDIA and CES, and the brand-new HGTV Smart Home 2014 in Nashville, TN. In her new series Smart, Simple, Solved, Knobloch takes a humorous aim at modern day quandaries and offers both high and low tech solutions for everything from finding time to exercise to de-stressing your morning routine.
Carley became a life coach in 2006, and her clients were stressed, disorganized, and wanted to simply live smarter. Downloading an app or learning a new piece of software was often the answer, so she focused her energy on helping even more people navigate the digital world through her website, newsletter and her self-produced video show, Digitwirl.
Carley is a regular fixture on the Today Show and CNN, and has been featured in Real Simple magazine. She resides in Los Angeles with her husband, two kids, springer spaniel, and myriad smartphones. Find her on Twitter at @carleyknobloch.
