Hello everyone, I’m Malcolm Priestner
Welcome to my website my Digital Home Solutions, I have been operating home computer systems since the earlier 1980’s.
I started with a single PC running Microsoft Windows 3.1. Over time, I had a home network running 4 PC’s with Microsoft Windows XP, a Windows Laptop and a server with Microsoft Server 1998 installed.
Becoming disillusioned with Windows based PC’s
Around 2004 I was looking for a new screen to help with my photo and video editing and I discovered an Apple 27” iMac. The screen quality was excellent and the loading speed of the photographs and video’s in the editing software was outstanding compared to my windows PC. I was hooked and I completed converted my whole home network over to Apple where I remained ever since.
Becoming a total Apple convert – because it just works!
I have become a total Apple convert due to their ease of use, reduced administration and simple maintenance. I run iMac’s, MacBook’s, iPads, iPhones, Apple TV, and Time Capsule within my network, I do use other products but generally if there is an Apple solution, I will buy the Apple product in preference to anything else.
Using the Apple products, I now have a fully digitally connected home which is heading towards what would be called in today’s speak a ‘Smart Home”. I have smart lighting, heating controls, cameras, security, speakers and Smart TV’s around the house.
Is it difficult to create a digital home? – not really!
I am often asked how I have been able to create a digitally connect home and due to the frequency, I was asked to help people with home computer problems I thought it may be beneficial to share my knowledge about building a smart home on a website.
