Seven days till Christmas y’all! I’m always amazed at how time flies. I remember around this time of the year last year, I was busy preparing for our wedding. I remember getting excited and stressed out all at the same time but it really was such a wonderful time in my life! And in about a month, it will already be our first anniversary!
As some of you may know, if you’ve read my previous post 3 Important Reasons Why You Should Have a Smart Home and How to Have One, we’ve just moved into our brand new home a couple of months ago and we’re barely just getting settled.
From moving to unpacking to picking out the furniture that will go in every room in the house to decorating, moving can seriously test your stress threshold and patience! But we’re truly blessed so we can’t complain.
We have moved into a beautiful 4 bedroom home in a nice neighborhood just in time before the holidays – enough time for us to prepare for a Christmas gathering at our house. This will be our first Christmas as a married couple in our new home so it’s pretty special.
While we’ve unpacked most of our stuff, we still have a long ways to go in completing our house and getting fully settled in. We’re at least able to decorate our house for the holiday festivities. We decided to put up a 9 Ft Christmas tree and decorated our mantle for this year.
In between my husband’s job, my business, and trying to buy stuff for the house, my husband and I have been out of the house for the most part of the day, in the past few weeks. The Christmas lights on the Christmas tree and the Christmas mantle make the hubby nervous a lot of times because they can seriously cause a fire. I can’t blame the concern, right?
Thankfully, with Hive smart products fully activated in our house, I don’t have to worry about such kind of stuff. All I did was plug in our Christmas tree to the Hive Active Plug and voila! I can control the Christmas lights anytime, anywhere, through my Hive app. I absolutely love the convenience and peace of mind that Hive gives me, for as low as $8.33/month!
I wasn’t able to show it here because our master’s bedroom is still not fully organized but we installed the Hive Active Light Color-Changing bulbs in each of our lamps which we can turn into different colors as we please. In celebration of the Christmas season, we sometimes have in red and green!
If you’re traveling for the holidays, Hive smart products can definitely come in handy! Our friends or neighbors can’t always come to our house to check on it or to turn the lights on or off for us at night so it doesn’t seem like it’s empty and turn it off during the day. That’s just very tedious and inconvenient to whoever we’ve asked to do this favor for us.
With Hive, you don’t have to ask for this kind of favor or worry about your house looking so dark at night, making it enticing to thieves. You can control your home at your fingertips.
With the Hive Welcome Home Pack, which is $349.99 or $14.58/month, you will get Hive Active Lights, A Hive Motion Sensor, a Hive Active Plug, a Hive Window or Door Sensor, and a Hive Active Thermostat.
