The holiday season is just around the corner!
While in some ways it’s the most wonderful time of the year, sometimes the planning, coordinating, decorating, and entertaining can be a heavy lift. Leveraging smart home technology can make things easier and by doing some of the work for you.
If, like Clark Griswold the holiday season means filling your home inside and out with lights, inflatable yard decorations, or glowing roof ornaments, you know the pain that comes with plugging things in each evening and unplugging them in the morning. With smart plugs like Lutron’s outdoor Caseta plug, you can program your lights to turn on automatically based on the time of day or set them to follow a custom schedule. Or, with Control4’s color control, you can create lighting configurations with any color of the rainbow. Fill your space with the autumnal colors of falling leaves for Thanksgiving, or paint your room with red and green for Christmas.
If you’re planning on entertaining, whole-home audio is a must. Speakers from Control4 and Savant are designed to fit seamlessly in with your home’s current design. When guests begin to arrive, a simple tap of a button on your digital control panel or phone app will fill your home with perfectly synchronized holiday tunes. The days of fiddling with buttons on an outdated and bulky stereo system are in the past.
The holiday season also means travel and online shopping. A smart system can help ensure your packages stay put. A doorbell camera allows you to view and chat with porch visitors. Or, with just a tap of a button, you can unlock your front door to allow your delivery driver to safely leave your items indoors and out of reach of porch pirates. If you and your family will be traveling, whole-home smart security allows you to check your camera feed from anywhere in the world and immediately be notified of any suspicious activity.
