As the only media property laser-focused on the Connected Home, Digitized House produces 100% original editorial, video, and social content designed to guide consumers to creating a smarter, healthier, safer, and more sustainable place to live.

Producing and hosting all of that original content is expensive. In order to help offset our cost of bringing you the latest in well-crafted, well-photographed, and well-edited stories you can’t get anywhere else, we generate revenue in the following ways that help to keep us in business:

[1] Affiliate Product Links

[1.1] Amazon Associate Program Links

As a participant in the Amazon Associate program, we may earn a commission from qualifying purchases made from ads, buttons, or text links to Amazon that may be placed on our website. These Amazon Associate links may appear within editorial content, headers, footers, and sidebars. Purchasing from one of these Amazon Associate links does not increase the amount you pay.

[1.2] Other Affiliate Program Links

Within editorial content, headers, footers, and sidebars, we may also include ads, buttons, or text links to relevant products and services from other reputable online retailers and companies. If you click on one of these affiliate links and then follow through to complete a purchase, we may earn a commission. Again, purchasing from one of these links does not increase the amount you pay.

[1.3] General Placement of Affiliate Links

Effective August 1, 2018, you will see more of these Amazon Associate and other Affiliate Program links on our website, and we will strive to include relevant links to reputable merchants for every product or service we mention in nearby editorial content, irrespective of whether a product or service may have been mentioned positively in the related content or not.

[2] Affiliate Product Links in House Selects Series

In our House Selects series, we feature content about things we try out and think you’d like. Within House Selects content, we may  include ads, buttons, or text links to these products or services we have personally used. If you click on one of these affiliate links and then follow through to complete a purchase, we may earn a commission. As is the case with all of our affiliate links, purchasing from one of these links does not increase the amount you pay. If you know of a product or service you would like us to try, let us know through [email protected]

[3] Sponsored content

Companies in the connected home ecosystem may pay us a fee for placement of their editorial or video content on Digitized House. On our website, this type of paid content will always be clearly tagged as “Sponsored Content.” On our Apple News app channel, this type of content will always have a blue header with the text “Sponsored” clearly visible.

[4] Banner ads

We may present various types of conventional banner ads within editorial content, headers, footers, and sidebars. These ads may be linked to the Google AdSense or other ad-serving network, and we may receive a small commission if you click on the ad and follow through to the linked website.

Thank you for supporting us!
