“A Mindful Home (amindfulhome.com) is among those leading the paradigm shift in the home-building industry,” says founder and Emory University Goizueta Business School grad Ryan Paddock. “We’re ushering in a new era where your home’s technology system and accompanying infrastructure can and should be architected and designed with great purpose and in detail,” he says. “The same way you’d bring in an architect, builder or designer, we are part of that core team now, bringing a natural life to your home in dynamic and unanticipated ways.” His passion and deep knowledge of the residential technology space are evident when you get him on the subject, always eager to both listen and educate on a topic that has monopolized his life for almost a decade now.
Within the first few years of operation, A Mindful Home has found great success in curating individualized experiences for each of its clients. Think human-centric lighting that adapts to your natural circadian rhythm (Ketra), enterprise-grade networks that can handle traffic from up to thousands of concurrent devices and users, advanced AI-based voice control rooted in homeowner privacy (Josh.AI) and the world’s most elegant automation and control system to marshal and run it all (Savant).
But Paddock doesn’t stop there. In terms of luxury buyers, he has the exclusivity they crave. “The technology landscape is forever in flux with much of it commoditized,” says Paddock. “For the sophisticated buyer, however, we are able to provide exponentially better solutions through our world-class product partners, exclusive to our industry.” It is these product partnerships and Paddock’s ability to curate a tech experience that truly set A Mindful Home apart.

“WE PROMISE OUR CLIENTS A BETTER EXPERIENCE WITH TECHNOLOGY BRINGING A BEAUTIFUL BALANCE OF INNOVATION, PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY IN EACH OF OUR BESPOKE SOLUTIONS,”
–Ryan Paddock, A Mindful Home
“We promise our clients a better experience with technology bringing a beautiful balance of innovation, performance and reliability in each of our bespoke solutions,” say Paddock. “I don’t want others to think of the work we do as creating smart homes because it is so much more than that. Smart homes have been around in name since the mid-’80s and around in essence long before that, yet connected homes are still in their infancy.”
A Mindful Home’s evolved blend of universal design and livable design promises a future relationship with your technology that stands the test of time, adapting to your family’s ever-changing functional and emotional needs. Applying a unique five-faceted design approach, Paddock is able to put power back into the hands of his clients integrating sophisticated and elegant solutions to provide simple and intuitive control without limits. “Homes now have to be more than smart,” says Paddock. “They have to be interconnected, thoughtful and reliable. That powerful blend in conjunction with our process creates A Mindful Home.”
