The holidays are here, and that means it’s again time to bring out the lights and decorations and get ready to celebrate in whichever way you and your family find fitting.  

Of course, you don’t have to just settle for the same old decorations year in and year out. The smarter your house gets, the more options you have for creative, technology-driven holiday surprises and streamlined holiday fun. So, before the New Year hits and you have to stow everything away for another year, here are just a few ways that you can use your smart home to sparkle some more joy into everyone’s lives this holiday season.


Have The Halls Deck Themselves

Who wants to deal with the hassle of remembering which light switch turns on which lights? For that matter, who even wants to use switches to turn on lights? This is the holidays! Things should just work auto-magically!

Well, with smart lighting, things can. With the simple press of a button – or even your voice, depending on your control system -- you can have all of your holiday lights come on at once. This also makes getting ready for bed easy, too: When you are ready to turn in for some sugarplum dreams, you can easily switch your house to night mode and watch as all the lights either dim or turn off. It couldn’t be simpler!

If you need help figuring out how to set up your home’s smart lighting – or want to check out some of our awesome new whole home control systems – there’s no better time than the holidays! Give us a call today and we’ll be sure to help you find what you are looking for!


Yuletide Fires

When the cold at the end of the year creeps in, there’s nothing quite like snuggling next to a roaring fire with a nice cup of warm cocoa. Perhaps even a book? Either way, heating can be very important this time of the year, and managing the thermostat can just become such a drag. 

Well, let’s make it easier. With a smart home system, you can manage temperature right from the palm of your hand. No needless trips to the thermostat. Use that extra time for some extra cocoa!


Magical Moments

Think outside the box, and you’ll easily find more creative ways to combine the magic of the holidays with the real magic of smart homes. What about some smart speakers that you hide on the roof that you randomly control to play hoof noises? Your kids will be excitedly listening for the clip-clop of hooves on the roof for months!

Want to really go to the next level? You could try getting a custom moving fireplace! Or maybe it’s time to treat your whole family to an upgrade home theater that will put smiles on everyone’s faces for years to come? Think big, and with smart home tech, even your wildest holiday hopes can come true!
