Ever since we moved into your current home, I’ve been trying to incorporate the latest in technology to improve the function & comfort of our home. If you’re also interested in smart home products, be sure to check out Best Buy for a wide variety of high-tech products designed to upgrade your space. In fact, if you’re in the Minneapolis area, don’t forget to visit the Mall of America starting on 8/22 to test out a variety of smart home products in a fun, home-like environment.
