Fall is the season for home improvements, especially security improvements. The days are getting shorter and colder and we want our homes to be protected in many ways. The question many people have is “where do I begin?” If you are in Montreal from October 19th to October 22nd you can begin by visiting the Montreal Fall Home Expo. Best Buy will have their demonstration smart home at the show, so you can try out the newest smart technology.
Here is a video taken by blogger Stéphane Vaillancourt on the morning of the first day of the event: (in French)
There will be products from Google, like their voice activated Google home, from ezviz, like their amazing mini 360 security camera, and much much more. Here are a couple videos showing these products: but to try them yourself visit the Best Buy display at the Montreal home show.
Here are the vendors that you will find at the Best Buy smart home. As you can see there are many different types of technology to help make your home more energy efficient, easier to control, more visually appealing, and, of course, safer from prowlers and thieves.
The technologies range from smart lighting to smart cameras and beyond. You can even try some smart appliances from Samsung. (Learn more about the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator and other smart appliances in the article “10 surprising ways appliance technology has changed to make your life easier“.)
