‘Tis the season for cookies, snowmen, fireplaces and Christmas lights. But unfortunately, the holidays can also be the season of last-minute shopping, endless checklists and stress. We hope your holiday season is filled with joy this year and to help with that we have a few tips to keep your holidays merry and bright!

Make decorating simple

If you’d like to turn on your Christmas tree, wreaths, garland and any other lighted decorations faster and easier, consider investing in smart plugs. This allows you to operate your decorations from a central location instead of running around turning everything on and off individually. But even better, you will be able to set your decorations on a schedule so they turn on when you want, even if you aren’t home, and you won’t accidentally leave them on all day. Or if you’d like to never have to hang outdoor Christmas lights again, ask us about adding permanent Christmas lights to your home!

Give the gift of smart home

If you have someone on your Christmas list that is difficult to shop for, smart home gifts can be a really great option! Whether you have someone who loves all the latest tech or someone who doesn’t want anything complicated, you can find them the perfect gift. And if the thought of choosing products yourself seems overwhelming, we offer gift certificates and free consultations with a smart home specialist.

Beware of deals

Everything is on sale this time of year. But if you plan to purchase smart home devices, whether for gifts or for yourself, make sure you are purchasing them from a reputable website or person. Black Friday flyers often put smart devices on the front page but before you “add to cart” make sure the product is new and not used, that it is the current model and not an older one, and also that it comes with a warranty.

Watch over your home and packages

There will probably be a lot of packages delivered to your home over the next several weeks. Between that and keeping an eye on your house now that it is dark much earlier, it is the perfect time to invest in either security cameras or a video doorbell. These will allow you to keep an eye on your home when you are at work or out of town visiting family. And as a bonus, the video doorbell has package detection so it will let you know exactly when an item arrives and keep an eye on it until you get home.

All of us at In The Lite Electric would like to wish you a very Merry Christams and a bright holiday season!
