November is not just the month for Thanksgiving, but it is also that time of the year where globally, there is the biggest sale of the entire year called Black Friday. Shoppers line up outside stores starting at dawn, to get their hands on the best deals and things that they’ve waited for only because they are much more affordable during the Black Friday Sales. It’s absolutely chaotic in majority of the places!
But given that we’re once again just a few weeks away from Black Friday, you might have already begun to make your lists of things that you’d like to purchase once the day comes. Whether its clothes, makeup, a new TV, Beats by Dre headphones or even an iPhone, we’re here to suggest that you may also want to venture into buying some different things this time around. Or at least add them to your list. They are what we would call a great investment into your home, because of their usefulness and the fact that they are great for long term use.
Here are some gadgets that you should consider buying on Black Friday this year.
- Smart Lock
If you were thinking of getting a smart lock, black Friday is the perfect time to do so. Not only are they cheaper then, but you also won’t feel half as bad as you would have if you’d bought it at full price and not liked the technology.
But how can you not like the technology? Smart Locks provide a tamperproof, keyless means of locking and unlocking your doors. It eliminates the trouble of leaving behind spare keys under planters or with the neighbors, or even just standing on the front porch, fumbling through your bag fro they keys to unlock the door.
Smart door locks have different means of locking and unlocking doors. There’s the obvious: keypad to punch in the code, then there are associated mobile apps that only require the tap of one button to lock or unlock the door, while some devices also tend to use your phone location tracking in order to determine whether to lock or unlock the door.
- Wi-Fi LED Bulbs
TikTok-ers flaunt their fancy Wi-Fi lights all the time, so now’s your chance to get your hands on some Wi-Fi Light bulbs too. But they aren’t only for setting the vibe of a room – these bulbs are LED, meaning they already consume less energy as opposed to regular light bulbs, which makes them perfect for energy saving purposes.
Imagine having automated lighting in your home, how cool would that be? And easy on the electric bills too every month! Use Black Friday as your means of turning your home lighting system into an automated one. You can control these Wi-Fi LED lights through their designated mobile apps, through smart speakers and voice assistants, and collectively through hubs should you have any – like the Philips Hue Bridge for instance.
- Wireless Smart Cameras
A smooth way of conducting surveillance, or to use as an advanced baby cam with greater Wi-Fi range, smart cameras will be one of your best purchases of the Black Friday sales. We know the struggles that are usually faced with regular surveillance cameras – bad picture quality, sometimes there is no audio either, and with baby cams there’s always limited Wi-Fi range so you can’t go too further from the nursery.
This Black Friday, get a wireless smart cam for your home and watch how your surveillance game changes. With HD image quality and two-way audio you can watch and speak to whoever is at the other end of the camera. These type of cameras can be moved around pretty much to anywhere – they only require Wi-Fi connectivity to do their job.
And if you’re a mom, then it makes for the perfect alternative to your baby cam. The video of smart cameras are accessible through our smartphones, and they even send in alerts upon detecting any sound or movement so you won’t miss a thing.
- Smart Wi-Fi Router
A smart Wi-Fi router will be a game changer for your home. While you wouldn’t expect for a router to cost you anything like $100 or above, smart routers are worth the buy – and even better if you were to get it on discount on Black Friday! They provide greater coverage over large spaces, with seamless connectivity and also bring with them numerous features that no ordinary router can offer.
Smart Wi-Fi Routers feature mobile apps through which users can access the router settings. And that doesn’t just include setting up the device, some have parental control options such as blocking Wi-Fi connectivity to certain devices, or restricting access to certain content, or even restricted access to the internet after a certain time.
Add To Cart, Maybe?
With your usual shopping lists for Black Friday, think about the gadgets we mentioned above and maybe add a thing or two to your list. But we would suggest that you do your research, so that you can figure out how they can fit into your home, and you may as well stumble upon some more gadgets that would work just as well!
