The holidays can be stressful, but there are many ways your Guardian smart devices can lend a helping hand.* From a personal portal to package delivery to holiday lights turned on in a snap, discover the devices that can be your best holiday helpers!

Keep an Eye on Packages With the Video Doorbell

The video doorbell is perfect for ensuring that packages stay put and safe from porch pirates. And, as more presents arrive, you can monitor when they are delivered from the video doorbell’s feed in your Guardian Protection app. In addition to keeping an eye on your heartfelt gifts, it’s also a convenient way to watch out for holiday visitors.

Stay Warm 24/7 With a Smart Thermostat

Keep your loved ones warm this season by automatically adjusting the temperature of your smart thermostat. In the Guardian app, you can create a Scene to schedule when to raise and lower temperatures to avoid manually adjusting from day to night. Also, by managing this smart device from the app, you can change your home’s temperature from anywhere, regardless of how far you plan to travel. As a (big) bonus, this also helps your home to be more energy efficient!

Light Up the Holidays Using a Smart Plug

Have you ever worried that you left your holiday lights on even after constantly reminding yourself to turn them off? Make those fears a thing of the past by using your indoor or outdoor smart plug to turn your lights on and off! With the Guardian Protection app, you can manage your lights from wherever you are in the world. No more worrying about leaving the Christmas tree on after you’ve left the house!

Stay Safe With Home Security Detectors

Though a home invasion is likely far from your mind during all of your holiday planning, it’s important to be prepared just in case. Presents placed near windows can sometimes attract unwanted attention from the wrong people, so arm yourself against potential break-ins with professionally monitored motion detectors, window & door sensors, and glass break sensors. Having devices watching out for you can give you the peace of mind you need (and have earned!) as the holiday festivities begin.

Keep an Eye Out for Santa With Indoor and Outdoor Cameras

Indoor and outdoor cameras are helpful year-round, but you can unlock new potential with them this holiday season. Not only are they great for keeping an eye on your home if you have travel plans, but you can also use the Santa Security feature to insert images of Santa into your home video feed as Christmas grows nearer!

Prevent Turning Festivities Into Fires With Smoke & Heat Detectors

The best way to celebrate the holidays is by surrounding yourself with loved ones and lots of food. If you’re not the most skilled cook or prone to burning a side dish, having a professionally monitored smoke & heat detector can add an extra layer of protection between you and a house fire. It is also an excellent way to make sure those lights or candles you left on don’t cause a holiday disaster.
