Services for Your Home
MacMaven makes house calls to New York City apartments
If you have a new Mac, iPhone, or iPad, we will help you get the most out of it. We can transfer your files from other Macs or PCs, get your e-mail up and running, set up your network, and help you sync your data using services such as iCloud, Dropbox, or Google Drive.
We can recommend and install macOS data backup solutions, local (e.g. Time Machine, Time Capsule) or cloud-based (e.g. Backblaze).
Hard drive failure or accidental deletion of your files can be devastating. (Always back up your data!) In many cases, we can recover your data for a fraction of what a clean-room recovery would cost.
Wi-fi for large homes and apartments
A single router does not always work well in larger homes or pre-war apartments. We can set up your network to blanket your home with strong wi-fi using the latest mesh routers.
MacMaven can help you organize your photos, load your photos into cloud services, and share your photos with friends and family. We’ll also help you back up your photos for safekeeping.
If you’re running out of storage, we’ll give you several options to reclaim drive space – without having to buy a new computer.
Wireless surveillance cameras are now extremely affordable. We’ll set up the networking for remote monitoring of your apartment. Video footage can be stored on your own server or in the cloud.
MacMaven is well-versed on the latest home theater and music streaming devices. Whether it’s Sonos, Google Home, or high-end AV equipment, we can help with your purchasing decisions and installation. We can also help you organize your iTunes library.
We can restrict your kids’ application and internet usage. We support native macOS and iOS parental controls.
To name a few applications we support for our clients: Microsoft Office 365, iWork (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), web browsers (Safari, Chrome, Firefox), Photos, iTunes, Quicken, virtual machine hosts (VirtualBox, VMware Fusion, Parallels), and 1Password.
