The Black Friday Shopper
If you typically host friends and family at your house for Thanksgiving, you’ll probably want to monitor your home while they are there. Surveillance cameras will keep an eye on every part of your home, keeping your guests safe, and they will also help welcome guests inside. Using Control4’s HD Intercom system, you can see who is at the front door and speak to them to let them in. Let’s say your aunt just arrived and rang the doorbell. Your phone will get an alert. You can open your front door camera to verify she is there. Then using smart locks, you can open the door with the press of a button on your iPhone. The holidays are busy, so you can save yourself some time and keep everyone safe by managing the door entry with technology. It’s also very helpful if you have a large property and a front gate. You won’t have to run out to the front every time someone arrives. You can press a button and let them park inside.
Then when it’s time to get ready for Black Friday, you can set the alarm using the Echo voice control device by saying, “Alexa, set morning alarm to 4 a.m.” As soon as everyone is ready to go, all you have to do is press one button to arm the security system as you rush out the door. Everyone who stayed home to sleep in and avoid the crowds will be safe while you are done getting those early-morning deals. If any of your guests leave while you are gone, the system can send you an alert. If your aunt left the door unlocked, you can lock it while you’re browsing aisle 7. We know the holidays can be chaotic, but Premier Group’s security and surveillance system keep you in complete control, and give you peace of mind.
The Cyber Monday Shopper
We understand, you don’t feel like waking up super early and dealing with the hordes of people trying to get a new smartphone or smart TV. On Monday, after all the weekend madness, shop online and pick exactly what you want and have it shipped right to your door. If you work during the day and are worried about someone stealing your purchased items, use the HD Intercom and security cameras to track them and ensure they stay safe. When the postman arrives with your package, the system will send an alert to your phone that someone is at your front door. You can use the intercom to speak to the man at your door and tell him to leave it on the back porch or even open the door for him and let him leave it inside. Then, lock the door directly behind him. You’re watching him with the cameras, so you don’t have to worry he will try to steal something inside, and if he does you’ll have it on camera and can call the police. When you get home, all of your discounted items will be safe and sound.
Of course you don’t have to shop online or in the store during Black Friday to get all of your home technology gadgets and audio/video systems. Contact us online and send us your shopping list!
