As Turkey Day approaches, you may already be plotting out the perfect plate of food and the exact spot where you'll be sleeping off your annual food coma. Or if you're like us, you're thinking about your favorite Thanksgiving traditions and how the people you spend this special holiday with make it as unique as your family is. 

1. Gobble, gobble

When preparing the perfect turkey for your family feast, you most likely fall into one of two categories. You either like it deep-fried or oven baked, and your family won't accept anything else that breaks from tradition.

If you need to make sure the kids stop playing video games and come to the Thanksgiving table to enjoy the turkey, you can create a program that will cut the TV off at a certain time.

2. Football fun

While you're enjoying the company of friends and family, you're equally interested in keeping a close eye on the big football games.

If you have a family member who is known for always being late, you can create a digital guest key program so they can let themselves in with their own unique 4-digit door code while you continue to cheer on your favorite teams without leaving the comfort of your easy chair.

3. Preparing to shop, shop, shop

After the big meal, is your family one that becomes strategic and plots to put together a game plan to take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals?

In your rush to leave the house for the early bird specials on Friday, you can't remember if you locked the doors.  You can create a program that will automatically lock your doors whenever your Digital Life system is set to away.

4. Naptime

After large amounts of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and more, you know the exact moment when Grandpa or that certain snoozer in your family plans on escaping to the living room for a well-deserved nap.

You can create a program that will cut your lights on or off at a certain time so that the naptime goes uninterrupted.

5. Giving thanks

Considering how busy life can be, the holidays present the perfect opportunity to reflect on how thankful you are for the friends and family who mean the most to you. When you're at the dinner table on Thanksgiving, try going around the room and having everyone take turns sharing what they're most thankful for.
