Best Buy offers some great ideas to make your next family adventure a fun and safe one, whether you are going with the whole family, or if it is just my wife and me. These ideas can enhance your vacation or road trip, and give you the peace of mind, and tools to keep everyone entertained while you are away to play.
While there are ideas for having a photo scavenger hunt, or having the ultimate tools to provide entertainment like movies and TV for the kids and yourself while in a hotel room, I think the one idea that I like best is the ability to stay connected to your home while you are away.
Maybe you are just taking a couple of days to do a road trip to an attraction nearby in your own state, or whether you are taking a 2 week excursion on a cruise ship, or maybe a drive across country to visit all the tourist spots our great country has to offer, you don’t have to feel like your home is unattended with some great ideas from Best Buy.
A few years ago, my wife and I took a journey by road trip from Ohio to Nevada. She had never been to Las Vegas, and I wanted her to experience it and get a chance to enjoy life more. We planned our trip to allow us many stops along the way to include time to see parts of the old route 66 highway, the Grand Canyon, and so much more. The one thing I didn’t have at the time? The ability to keep tabs on my home while we were away. Sure, we had family pick up our mail every couple of days, and had them check to make sure the doors were locked as well, but what about the times that they weren’t there? We couldn’t have a babysitter for the house the whole time, so what are you to do?
Look into some of the security options Best Buy offers is a great start! Take a look at the picture of the Nest Camera below. This is just one of the security cams that Best Buy offers that you can connect to your home network and monitor away from home using your smartphone, iPhone, or computer. They even sell packages of cameras that you can mount indoors and outdoors to have a 360 degree view of your home and property.
Maybe you are only going to be gone a couple of days, but you don’t want to be able to not see your pet while you are away, with one of these, you can set them up to keep an eye on them, and some even have 2 way sound so that you can interact with your pet, even if you are 300 miles away.
Some cams detect motion and sound as well, and can alert you immediately if was to detect something. You would be able to record video of the events occurring and if something was happening, you can notify family, the police or other agencies that you are away from home, and your house is being robbed, or maybe there might be a leak that can be caught before you get home and it becomes a huge problem later.
Maybe you need to upgrade your Smartphone before your next trip? In addition to all the great features and options you can have on your new phone, phones like my LG G4 allow you take some amazing pictures with all the options it gives you just like any DSLR camera would have.
So no matter what types of adventures you plan to have on your next family outing, or vacation, Best Buy has all the answers for your technological and entertainment needs. Be sure to visit Best Buy Online today, and find out how they can make your next trip, that much more exciting, and memorable.
