Sam is the friendly face and the brains behind LiteUp. Originally from North Canterbury, Sam has had a passion for gadgets of all descriptions since he was a child.

His professional journey began as a computer technician, serving homes and small businesses, when he covered everything from hardware and software support, to wireless networks and Audio Visual setup. He then moved into the enterprise sector as a Systems Engineer, working with servers, Cloud solutions and enterprise grade network equipment.

Home Automation has always fascinated Sam. His dream was to live in a home with lights that would switch on and off automatically, heating that was remote controlled, and a robot that did the cleaning!

Since early 2017, the products to make this dream a reality have been more affordable and widely available. 

Sam established LiteUp in late 2017, with the name inspired by his first piece of ‘smart home’ technology, the WiFi lightbulb, which he used to ‘LiteUp’ his lounge.

As the Internet of Things continues to grow at a rapid rate, and more homeowners and business owners are interested in smart technology, Sam’s skills, expertise and abilities are in strong demand, as he assists people to get the most out of their smart gadgets, and make their day-to-day lives easier.
