How about this – Do you often get home late at night?  Would having an app on your smartphone to remotely turn on the lights in your home help?  Or, did you forget to lower the garage door?  I’ve done that.  It’s 110 degrees outside and you forgot to turn on your AC.  Yes, there is an app for this too.  Actually, there are companies that offer both these services and most other technology driven devices in your home under one service.  You can manage all your home devices on one app.

And, let’s not forget saving money.  No other time in history has finding the best price for a product been so easy.  61% of smartphone users say they use their phone to research for the best product price before purchasing.  Why not, the apps are right at your fingertips.  Here is one example of how comparison shopping can work in your favor:

“I was in a store and the guy said he had the best price available so while he was holding the product I scanned the barcode, and I found it for $600 as opposed to the $759 he wanted for it. So I said, ‘Okay, here’s the price I’m going to buy it for within the next 5 minutes. If you’ll match the price I’ll buy it from you.’ And he said, ‘Well, we don’t match online,’ and I said, “Well then WE don’t get my money,’ because I’m really going to hit one button and I’m going to purchase it right in front of you.’”
