Technology has really made an impact around the world in the last 5 years alone. From smartphones to smart cars, we are able to do things faster, easier and unlike ever before.

Making homes everywhere “smarter” is going to become more affordable, easier and commonplace very soon. From smart washers, to thermostats that you can control from your phone, Home Tech really is the way of the future.Tech HomeWhat really is a tech home? I believe it is a home that you can do nearly anything at the touch of a button, whether in the home, or remotely. Best Buy has given way to the latest home technology at their Tech Home in the Mall of America. Customers can come and touch, play and test out all of the latest technology on the market in a homelike setting.

With sponsors like Samsung SmartThings, you can control and monitor various items like a thermostat, lamps, coffee pots and more. One of my favorite items is the ability to deadbolt my front door from the touch of my phone.

You can experience these at the Best Buy Tech Home. Take a tour with in infamous “Blue Shirt” or “Geek Squad” agent and get the most informative knowledge. Experience products from some of the top tech brands including Canon, NETGEAR, Philips Hue, Sony, Sonos and Savant. All items in the Best Buy Tech Home are available in various Best Buy stores nationwide. Best Buy Tech Home

Comments

  1. This sounds great and convenient but I am one of those older people who is skeptical of it. I think hackers could get the code and then have control of your house…. but that is just me. It is great for some people but not me. Thank you for the review.

  2. OMG I love Best Buy,its one of the only stores I’ve ever been in that they want you to touch things pushthe buttons, hear the volume, see the picture.. I will always be a loyal customer!!

  3. I love tech and I wish I lived closer to see the Tech Home, so I could see all the possibilities at work in one place.

  4. I’m a little surprised Best Buy is going to be in a mall. I guess next we’ll see Target going into a mall, lol I do know that KMart closed a ton of their own stores within the last year, so maybe this is the trend of the future?

  5. This looks like an amazing home.

  6. I’ve been waiting for this since I first saw the Jetsons. My dream house is all voice controlled, automatic and obedient. It will be nice when it’s so common it’s built into all new houses and apartments.

  7. I’m all for technology in my home, I just don’t want someone driving by with a laptop, a remote control, or a garage door opener to be able to hack my house 🙂

  8. (Best Buy Tech Home – Bringing Home Technology to Life at Mall of America #BestBuyTechHome) The next time I get to Best Buy I will have to check this out for our home. You can never be too safe now days-

  9. Cheryl Chervitz says:

    I’m not sure that I would want everything to be controlled by remote. I still believe that its not all that safe.

  10. Nancy Burgess says:

    This would be awesome to have.I would love to have it in my area.

  11. Michelle Castagne says:

  25. Best Buy is a great store for all things tech related!

  26. Wish I was going to be in the area to check it out. This is definitely how we will be living very soon. We can already answer our video doorbell on our cellphones & open/close the garage door at our home on our phones already.

  30. Heidi Payton-Holstein says:

    Im going to have to be ok with keeping my house in the old fashioned way.
    Way to many things can go wrong with tech stuff, then your house starts to eat the mail man and chase the neighbor hood children.
    Im to uncomfy to have that kind of lose of control over my home.

  34. I love best buy!

  35. Gabrielly says:

    Good to know about it.

  36. Yeah this is cool but I don’t have the tech stuff in my house. Not to mention I live in such a small older home.

  37. I love the idea, that if i think I forgot to turn off my coffee pot, that I could do it from my phone. I seen some advertisements about it.

  38. Sarah Kurtz says:

    I live pretty close by the MOA. I had no clue about this. I will have to check this out!

  39. I don’t think I would want a fully smart home, but sure love Best Buy, and they have some super incredibly helpful people there! 🙂

  40. I would love to have a smarter home! I wish I lived closer to the Mall of America!

  41. I live in MN so I will head over to the mall to check this out!

  42. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  43. Maggie Steele says:

    I never thought I would be one for a “tech home” but we got a new thermostat that is hooked into our wifi and we can change setting with an app. I’m in love with my thermostat!

  44. Best buy is the place for all things of techy type !!

  45. laurie murley says:

    wow they have such great product to help with home

  46. Gabrielly says:

    I would love to have everything with just the touch of a button but I don’t have the money for that.

  47. This would be smart to keep things safe.

  48. I’d like to have more technology features in my household and be able to control more functions by the press of a button remotely.
