Becoming a mother of 4 children has been a blessing for me, I couldn’t be happier. Just because I am the worry wart that I am, I tend to always be curious as to what happens when I’m not in the house. If someone is babysitting for me I usually have to depend on whatever photos my family members manage to capture and send to me. When I’m not at home there is literally no way possible for me to know what’s happening.
Recently I came across the Canary Indoor Wireless High-Definition All-In-One Home Security Device. This device solved my many problems and answered many questions I once pondered about for hours at a time. I remember thinking to myself when I was a little girl and watched the movies on TV. Whenever someone would enter a lair or super highly secured building, the motion detectors would start going off and the security team would be alerted. I remembered thinking how cool that would be if my home had that.What really stood out to me with those fancy security systems was, they were linked to screens which the main booth of a security team could view. The system did all the work, and the person only needed to pick up the phone and call for help if the system picked up any suspicious activities. I always thought to myself, wouldn’t that be so cool if my mom had that and she could be able to see I’m okay at home while she’s out grocery shopping or even just next door?
When I found the Canary Indoor Wireless High-Definition All-In-One Home Security Device I couldn’t have been more excited to put this baby to work. The thing I think I love the most about this is that it has an actual motion sensor which can detect any movement in the household. Now don’t get me wrong, it would be super annoying to hear this thing go off every time the kids run in and out of the house. Thankfully this device learns your patterns and the people (or pets) who wander in and out of your home.
Did I mention this has a actual build in camera? Um yeah! This camera can stream live video from your home anytime: Canary’s free mobile app let you see what’s happening from anywhere with your iPhone® or Android smartphone. How awesome is that when you’re out with your girlfriends, and pop in on the kids using the “Watch Live” in the app to make sure they haven’t thrown a party lol. I personally love love love this aspect since most times when I go out I’m always left wondering how the kids are doing and if they haven’t already hog tied their babysitter up and started to have a Pokemon Party or whatever they would consider unnecessary fun in my book lol.
Is it dark in your house? The vivid HD 1080p resolution allows you to see small details on your screen, the 147° field of view which lets see more with minimal blind spots, and infrared night vision lets you see in the dark. So checking in on your house when you’re out and the kids are asleep is a breeze. Actually, you can keep an eye up to 20′ away when there’s little to no light! Canary is the only solution/device with a 90+ decibel siren and a localized emergency call feature, which lets you contact authorities close to home from anywhere in the world. Notifications keep you informed: receive movement-detection notifications that contain recorded footage and give you the options to watch live or sound the 90+ dB siren. Since the March 2015 launch, nearly 75 known burglaries, home invasions, caretaker abuse and other emergency situations have been captured by Canary, resulting in multiple arrests. You can also monitor the temperature and air quality of the home is safe and comfortable – you can monitor the air quality, temperature and humidity in your home from almost anywhere.
What’s your biggest fear when you leave your home? Do you think Canary would be able to help you and your family? You can find the Canary Indoor Wireless High-Definition All-In-One Home Security on the BestBuy website.
Keeping my home SAFE and CONNECTED with Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter with Geek Squad. New and Exclusively at Best Buy.
I cannot stand dead zones, they seem to creep up behind me and find me in my favorite spots in my home. I always have that sigh of frustration when I end up in these zones and feel as though I have no choice but to move. To end my dustration I ventured to Best Buy and talked with an employee about my troubles. He pointed me to this Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter with Geek Included.
I quickly purchased this item and then took it home to be installed and used by my family and I. To kill my dead zones in my house Best Buy made this easy with this new high performance Wi-Fi router, which includes a Wi-Fi extender and Geek Squad Set Up and Support via phone & web, for one full year. The AC1900 comes with one DST, or “Dead Spot Terminator,” adapter – to eliminate your Wi-Fi dead zones; place it in an area where you get little/no reception, to improve Wi-Fi access. Additional adapters can be purchased for other dead zones.
A Fun fact about this router is that this is a brand new router that was exclusively developed between Netgear, an industry leader in the networking world, and Best Buy, to help provide consumers with an easy, all-in-one solution to support their home’s connected devices. As the number of Wi-Fi dependent products increase in a home – the average US household has 7 “connected devices” – from smart phones (often several in a home), to tablets, to laptops, to computers, and Wi-Fi printers, this puts a strain on the home’s network, especially the router. With the interest in online gaming and 4k TVs, connected devices such as smart thermostats, plus the need to stream shows from Netflix or hulu, it places even more demands on the network. Many households may experience slow Wi-Fi, dropped calls, or experience “dead zones” – which could be improved upon with an “AC” router, Wi-Fi extenders and expert help.
This high-performance router was built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music, and included advanced features for lag-free gaming. The Geek Squad service via phone & web allows customers to call or get help 24/7 whenever they want, vs. the need to schedule an appointment. See additional fact sheets for both the Router and DST adapter. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this signal booster! I don’t know how many times I’ve had to switch off my wifi due to its horrible reception on my phone or laptop. I love how its so easy to setup and how if you ever need any help the Geek Squad is available 24/7 to help you.
