If you’ve ever desired the comfort amenities. Security and convenience of a smart home, but don’t know where to start, I have the perfect solution! Vivint home security – available at Best Buy.


Best Buy 1 lot

Vivint has teamed up with Amazon Echo to transform ordinary homes into extraordinary homes using powerful accessories that won’t break the band. Recently, I stopped by a local Best Buy store for a full demo on how I can enhance my smart home and three essential accessories that will transform any home into an efficient and secure living space for the entire family.
You can control the Vivint system remotely using the free Vivint app on Android and iOS. It also contains an easy to use button for arming and disarming the system and locking/unlocking your doors. Using the task bar at the bottom of the screen you can access the thermostat to view the current temperature, turn the heating cooling system on and off, set vacation modes, and create a heating/cooling schedule for weekdays and weekends.

The SkyControl panel is the Vivint Smart Home’s nerve center. It has a 7-inch full color touch-screen display that makes it easy to lock and unlock doors, view live and recorded video, adjust heating and cooling temperatures, and activate emergency services including Panic and Burglary alarms that go straight to the local police department.

Vivint’s Doorbell Camera is my favorite accessory of the entire Vivint product line. It actually looks like a regular doorbell, and uses your existing wiring for audio/video capabilities. At the top of the doorbell is a  720p HD camera, with a 180-degree field of view and a 10-foot night vision range. Below that is a tiny microphone port, and there’s a small speaker for two-way communication with visitors using the in home SkyControl panel or your mobile device.

Create A Smarter Home With Arlo Smart Home From Best Buy #BBYConnectedHome

October 12th, 2015 by Christen

Creating a connected home may sound tech intensive, but it’s actually a lot easier than you think.  As a girl that has reviewed her fair share of technology, nothing excites me more than discovering tech products that improve the way I live!  Installing an in-home camera system revealed my dog’s secret life of lounging in my bed while I was away and thwarted thieving roommates in my NYC apartment. You could imagine how thrilled I was when I received the new Netgear Arlow Smart Home camera set, Netgear Router and Sling TV exclusively from Best Buy for my new home.


arlo smarthome


The Netgear Arlow Smart Home HD camera set is equipped with 4 indoor/outdoor HD cameras to upgrade your home (or business) security. The motion-activated security cameras enables you to capture 720p video footage both during the day and at night. Plus, set up is easy, wire free and weatherproof for indoor/outdoor temperatures ranging from 14° to 122°.  The system comes with 6 magnetic camera mounts and 9 mounting screws, for easy installation on a wall or flat surface. The motion-activated design automatically records motion once detected, sending e-mail or app notifications directly to your Android, Apple iOS smartphone or Amazon Kindle, Windows or Apple tablet.


arlo smarthome



Paired with Netgear Nighthawk DST Router and DST Adapter you absolutely can’t lose!  Best Buy even includes Geek Squad Set Up and Support via phone & web, for one full year. This brand new router (exclusively developed by Netgear and Best Buy), is an easy, all-in-one solution to support their home’s connected devices.  There’s nothing worse than a weak WiFi signal at home.  If you’re anything like me, you depend on your in-home WiFi to be strong and lightening fast!  The average American home has at least 7 WiFi connected gadgets on their home network at any given time.  Using smart phones, tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi printers while binge watching your favorite shows on Netflix or Hulu takes a toll on your home network and router.  With the Netgear Nighthawk DST Router and DST Adapter, I no longer have to live in fear of experiencing slow Wi-Fi, dropped calls, or “dead zones”.  Plus, having Geek Squad one call away is just the assurance I need in case troubleshooting issues arise. (Geek Squad is like your very own IT department ready and waiting to assist with any tech problems or needs.)


Netgear Nighthawk DST


Did I mention that this exclusive Best Buy deal even includes one free month of Sling TV? It’s now easier than ever to take your connected home to the next level by taking control of your home entertainment.  Cut the cord and get TV on your terms with Sling TV – watch when you want, on the device you want, plus pay for the channels you want at a great price. Personally, I’ve been “cable-free” using Roku for almost a year and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made.  I can still watch all my favorite shows, anytime I want and I’m saving more money on home entertainment than ever before.  Enjoy live TV from many of the most popular channels, including ESPN, AMC, A&E, TNT, HGTV and more — for just $20 per month. Plus, watch the latest episodes of your favorite shows and new movies on demand. You can also get extra entertainment with add-on packages starting at $5 a month, and HBO for an additional $15 per month.

Top Five Wedding Gifts Every Couple Wants (But Too Afraid To Ask For) #BestBuyWedding

September 18th, 2015 by Christen

We’re only a few months in and this wedding season has already put a pretty big dent in their gift-giving pockets.  As a matter of fact, the last wedding gift I gave wasn’t even on the wedding registry list (it was cold hard cash!) Nowadays, many couples are opting for cash gifts instead of tangible gifts to celebrate their new union and happily ever afters. Personally, I’m the type of gal that love the element of orchestrated surprise (meaning, I’ll give you just enough clues for you to get me the gift that I truly want.) Lucky for me (and the beau – Mister O.) Best Buy has a variety of wedding registry gifts that any couple would love!

A Samsung 60″ HDTV is the perfect accompaniment to any new home. It’s lightweight, has superior high definition quality and standard sound to match. Best Buy also offers a Group Gifting program  that allows gift-givers to contribute any amount they want, so couples can ask for the gifts they really want and not worry about price point.  And for the couples recuperating from over-the-top wedding fêtes – this Samsung TV is definitely a must have for those budget-friendly nights of Netflix and chill.

It has a powerful A8 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, advanced iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, iCloud, the breakthrough Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and up to 10 hours of battery life. It also includes great apps for productivity and creativity, and powerful new features in iOS 9 like multitasking.


Nutribullet Best Buy Wedding Registry



No one talks about the ugly truth of post-wedding bliss… which typically comes with a side of weight gain and love handles!  Help the newlyweds in your life with a fat-blasting alternative and help encourage them with healthy eating options using the latest Nutribullet system.  With a high-torque motor and 2 extractor blades, this blender efficiently crushes ice and tough ingredients, so they can make smooth, well-blended drinks and other recipes. The 32-oz. Colossal Cup lets them prepare enough to share.

Why Borrow The Man Cave When You Can Build Your Own She Shed With @BestBuy! #SheShed

September 16th, 2015 by Christen

Why try to borrow the man cave when you can build a personal oasis of your own.  Say hello to a she shed!  Never heard of a she shed? It’s sort of like a man cave, but totally different. The idea is simple. Take an old shed and transform it into an oasis of relaxation and rejuvenation—a place where women can leave stress and responsibility at the door, if only for a few hours. She sheds are?a relatively new idea, so the smart folks at Best Buy decided to show you just how easy it is to make one.

Design is one thing, but creating a smart space, filled with all the necessary technology you could need is another!  Check out how Best Buy can equip your She Shed with a few ultimate relaxation retreat tech upgrades below..



Extend the Wi-Fi for endless entertainment

Streaming music, movies and TV shows are great ways to unwind, but to stream successfully, you need strong Wi-Fi. Getting that signal out to the she shed in the backyard is often a challenge, so one of the first things the Best Buy team did actually didn’t happen in the shed. They added a Wi-Fi range extender inside the home. A strategically placed extender boosts the range of your existing router so the wireless can reach more places. Once it’s set up, you can enjoy movies on a tablet or music through a Sonos wireless speaker inside the shed.



she shed


Set the mood with your phone

The right lighting can make all the difference. The Best Buy team wanted maximum flexibility in our she shed, so they went with Philips hue. It has 16 million different colors, including presets like “Reading,” “Relax” and “Energize.” Everything is customizable and controllable via your phone. They used hue bulbs in our lamps and portable hue GO lights on the shelves. They even wanted phone-control for the chandelier, too, but since it uses standard lights, they plugged it into a Belkin WeMo switch instead. The switch lets you turn things on and off right from the WeMo app.


Create a hidden refreshment station

Coffee. Tea. Wine. I’m sure you would want them all at the ready in you ultimate she shed, but having too many small appliances in a small space could clutter things up and ruin the aesthetic. The solution is simple. Hide them. The Best Buy tucked an espresso maker, an electric tea kettle and a wine cooler inside a cabinet. (Be sure to cut the back open behind the cooler for adequate air circulation.) In the corner, they added a Dyson fan. It doubles as a heater to keep the shed warm on crisp, fall evenings.



she shed

Grant access without a key

The days of hiding a key under the mat are over. Now you can replace the old padlock with an August smart lock. Installation was pretty easy and it works with most standard deadbolts. Once it’s set up, not only can you lock and unlock the shed from your phone, you can also send an invite to a friend so she can enter for specific periods of time.
