While I’m usually the first one to buy the latest tech toys, I’ll admit that I’m more than a little late to the whole smart home game. Sure, I’ve got Alexa, and it tells me the weather and plays music for me. But I want to be able to control my thermostat remotely, see who’s ringing my doorbell if I’m not home, and more. The problem? I have no idea where to start.
Sounds familiar? Lets face it, tech is confusing, and some of these smart home projects can be more than a little daunting to the uninitiated. Thankfully, Best Buy is here to help, with a free in-home consultation, where a highly trained Best Buy In-Home Advisors will come to your home and answer questions about Wi-Fi, smart home, appliances, home theater, and more.
They provide recommendations and a personalized plan for the right solution to fit your needs through tech, coordinate deliveries and installations, and make sure that everything works as it should, taking a huge burden off of you. And like I said, the consultation is free, so you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
For my house, one of the biggest sources of frustration is the Wifi, specifically how spotty the connection is in our bedroom. When I asked Best Buy about this, they suggested that I install something like the Eero Mesh Wifi System, which comes with 3 eeros and is made for homes with 3-5+ bedrooms. The system uses TrueMesh technology to enable great WiFi performance and reliability no matter how many devices you use in your home, and I can’t wait to try it out.
I’ve always wanted a video doorbell for my home, so that I could see who’s at the door, find out when FedEx drops off a package (since they never ring the bell), and monitor my home when I am traveling. But installing one? That’s way beyond my skill level.. or so I thought. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 lets me see what’s going on right from my mobile device, and you can easily recharge the battery with the included power pack. Super cool!
Lastly, I’d like to update my kitchen, and I’ve got my eye on this GE Profile Wall Oven, which comes with all of the bells and whistles. The GE Profile™ Series 30″ built-in convection double wall oven lets you cook two dishes at once, and achieve perfectly even results with convection technology in both ovens. There’s even a 7″ touch display to program the oven with precision cooking modes that provide simple instructions, then automatically adjust the temperature and cook times to deliver perfect results.
With Best Buy’s in-home consultation, you’re able to get expert advice to help you bring your smart home to life. And there’s no obligation to buy anything. But trust me, one you see some of this technology for yourself, you’ll want to!
What smart technology do you want to add to your home?
