My husband and I recently had our car stolen out of our garage. I can’t tell you how violated and devastated we felt! We thought we had taken the necessary precautions by shutting the garage, locking the doors etc. BUT they were still able to take it. What we didn’t have was a home security system. If we had we may have been able to catch the people who took our car.
I am excited to introduce the Best Buy Connected Home Canary Security System which we have now set up! I absolutely feel more secure and safe since we have set it up. After our car got stolen we had to change all the locks on our house and re-key my van and of course the garage door! I felt like our entire life was turned upside down because of some thieves! Now with the Canary Security System I can check on my home while I am out and about! I can also check on my kids with the babysitter all from my phone.
We decided to set it up in our living room to give us the most view, we will probably add other ones later so we can keep an eye on each room. I love that I can not only see what’s going on but I can hear whats going on also! The Canary Home Security System can see for more than 147 degrees with minimal blind spots. I can also keep an eye on things when I am 25 feet away when there is little to no light.
I also love that I can keep the recordings for up to 90 days in case I need to review something that I have captured. One of my favorite features is that it monitors the air quality and temperature in my home. “Monitor the air quality, temperature and humidity in your home to stay comfortable and be more prepared to avoid safety issues like poor sleep and mold growth.” (Best Buy Website) We like to keep our home comfortable but want to make sure we are saving energy while we are gone. This is the perfect device to monitor our home while we are away.
The best thing about The Canary is that there are no monthly fees and I can view everything right on my phone.

I also received the NETGEAR – Nighthawk DST AC1900 Wireless-AC Gigabit Router with DST Adapter from Best Buy. Now I will admit I had no idea what this product did BUT now I do and I love it! The Nighthawk is able to get rid of all those dead zones where I may not get service or wifi in my home! I have been having some issues with our router not working and then of course the internet not working. With working on the blog and keeping up on social media I can’t have that happen.
I love that it has 3 detachable antennas to help strengthen the signal when I have more than 1 device connected to the internet. “Plus, you can plug the included Dead Spot Terminator (DST) adapter into an electric outlet to broadcast a secondary signal to fill in dead zones in your network.” (Best Buy Website)
It also includes 1 year free of Geek Squad Set up and Support.
