KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 13, 2017) – November is the start of a very busy season for many. With family visiting for Thanksgiving, football in full swing, Black Friday shopping and frequent traveling, it is easy to let things slide at our favorite place, our home. Worrying about your home is the last thing you want to do while spending time with loved ones, and with today’s connected devices that can be accessed from anywhere via smartphones such as iPhone X or the Galaxy Note8, homes can easily be protected and controlled.
U.S. Cellular’s knowledgeable associates will be hosting a free Device Workshop on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 9 to 10 a.m. at 2736 Schaad Road in Knoxville to show residents how the latest technology can help them create a “Connected Home.” Attendees will learn about devices such as cameras, alarms and voice-activated devices that can control different items in their home. The workshop is open to everyone, and attendees do not need to be a U.S. Cellular customer to attend.
“November serves as a busy month for a majority of people, and our associates can show you how some of the latest devices can enhance your lives, simplify daily tasks and help make your home safer during this time,” said Nathan Waddell, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Tennessee.
Please call 865-938-2363 for more information or to RSVP.
