He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. But what if you could watch him too? Now you can. This holiday season, users of the SmartHome Mobile App on iOS or Android can now open a camera feed and watch as Jolly Saint Nick himself moves throughout the home, leaving gifts and stuffing stockings. It’s a delightful way to share the magic of the season with your friends and family while ensuring your home is snug and secure.

Many of us love the holiday season for a myriad of reasons. It might be the omnipresent Christmas music and festive decorations, or the general holiday buzz. There’s usually something about this season that energizes us. For me, it’s the 24/7 Christmas-themed movies, particularly the classics from my youth in the 80’s and 90’s, aka the era of great holiday movies.

Holiday gift wish-lists are a funny thing - they’ll tell you about our hobbies, what we like, and who we are. They’re aspirational (no one is buying you that $50,000 Tesla, little bro) but often very attainable too (hello Amazon giftcards); sometimes they don’t cost a thing (home-cooked meal, anyone?). Wishlists are the perfect way to tell people what you want or if you're more of a giver, help brighten someone else’s day.
