If you've been looking to transform your residence into a smart home, without breaking the bank, Black Friday is a good time to do it. Smart home technology allows you to control your appliances, lighting, air conditioning, computers, entertainment systems, security systems — pretty much anything you can think of — remotely or with your voice. You can unlock front and back doors, adjust lighting when you walk into the room, keep tabs on visitors with a video doorbell, set your thermostat to turn itself down when you leave, track activity inside your house or out, play music on demand, start your coffee maker, perform a multitude of activities that can provide you with the benefits of added convenience, improved security and, in some cases, lower energy bills.
