If you are an Existing Supplier and would like Smarthome to consider carrying your product, the process is as follows (this process may take 2-4 weeks):

Product Submission Phase

  • Product Sample
    • Please send a retail-ready working sample that will be used for testing, photography and for demonstration in our retail store (if we decide to carry your product) to:
      • Attn: New Products
      • Smarthome
      • 16542 Millikan Ave
      • Irvine, CA 92606
    • The sample is to be sent at no charge and must include a New Product Submission Form (if more than one product is being sent for consideration, please include separate forms for each product)
    • Every product must go through our rigorous hands-on testing & evaluation process
    • Please note: The sample will not be returned
  • Product / Supplier Information and Assets
    • Please complete and send the following information to [email protected]:
      • New Product Workbook
      • Contact Information Sheet (if new contacts exist)
      • Hi-resolution product images (minimum of 300dpi); and your company/brand logo if applicable
      • Product videos, code to product videos on your website, or a link to youtube videos
      • Manuals, Quick-start guides, diagrams, templates, etc. (preferably in .pdf format)
Please note: the quickest way to get your products live and selling on Smarthome.com is to send us the above ASAP. Any changes or requests you may have will significantly slow down the process.

Testing & Evaluation Phase

Several testers will use the product evaluating functionality & features; quality; ease of use and ease of manual/instructions.

Pricing Phase

If your product passes testing, it goes to Purchasing for price analysis and terms agreement.

Launch Phase

Product is sent to Web & Merchandising Team for product page creation/videos/creatives/marketing plan. Purchasing places PO.
