We have been in New York for a couple days now and I am absolutely loving it! We are staying in a one room hotel suite for a month. I was a little nervous coming here. Sharing a room with your kids can be exhausting. Both Zoey and Zander have been going to bed on time and sleeping well though. I guess they are getting used to sleeping anywhere with all this traveling we have been doing!
Sleeping is becoming a non-issue when we travel. But one thing I do always worry about when we leave is home security. Every time we leave I’m rushing to get everything packed. We have to get people to keep our hot tub treated and check on our house. I’m also scrambling to get our mail taken care of. Our house is in a busy complex and right off a busy street. I have had packages stolen right off my doorstep! So break ins are a concern for me too.
This trip to New York should be more stressful in the home security department, since we are away for a long time. But I feel much less worried than normal because right before we left I installed the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge. This device is easily installed and allows you to open and close your garage door from your phone, no matter where you are. If you are like me, and have ever gone shopping and then had to turn back because you couldn’t quite remember if you closed the garage or not, this will be a time saver for you.
Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge is compatible with all the major home automation technologies including Nest®, XFINITY Home™, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit™. It enhances your home security, automation and control of your garage. Once it is all set up with the Apple HomeKit™ you can even ask Siri® what the status of your garage door is!! All the way in New York I can check in and make sure my garage is closed. It is great for friends checking on the house for us, they just text me and I can open and close it for them. There is a Black Friday sale coming up for the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge. If you are looking to automate your home and increase your home security watch out for that!
Deciding to travel to New York for a month was an easy decision. When Kris told me there was an opportunity to go and work at a hospital just half hour from Times Square for a whole month I said YES. YES. YES. We love the city and love travel and so we didn’t hesitate to accept the offer. Getting ready for the trip was a whole different story. I had a million campaigns to wrap up with the blog, I had to pack three weeks worth of stuff, schedule my mail hold and redirect important packages to our hotel, book our hotel, arrange for people to take care of our hot tub, etc. The Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge gave me one less thing to worry about and already has brought me peace of mind on this vacation!
