Smart Home Haunted House Tips 2019

by Pam Silvia

1. Eye See You

It isn’t Halloween without candy or trick and treaters.

We don’t need to give you candy advice though--we’re sure you have that one handled. Instead, we wanted to start this list with some practical advice: A smart doorbell. With one, you’ll be able to keep an eye on any trick or treaters who come throughout the night, and you can also keep a watchful eye on that bowl of candy you left outside. It isn’t necessarily spooky, but it can be an important part of having a safe Halloween.

2. Luminous Lighting

Lighting is a perfect way to spookify your smart home. With automated lights, you can really run the gamut with what you decide to do: Lights that turn on and off at random times, colored lights that really set the Halloween mood, or even lights that respond to your every beck and call. Get creative: with lights, remember--the eerier, the better.

3. Witchy Whole Home Audio

Imagine hearing “The Nightmare Before Christmas” soundtrack in every room of your house. Or maybe haunted house noises are more your speed? Either way, with whole home audio, you can send your spookiest and scariest sounds through the entire home--they’ll follow your guests through each and every room. 

Whole home audio isn’t just great for Halloween either--it’s great all year long! If you are interested in getting your smart home set up with whole home audio, contact us today! We’ll make it a treat, not a trick, we promise.

4. Cold As the Grave

Most times of the year you are going to set your smart thermostat to whatever temperature keeps you most comfortable. But Halloween isn’t most times of the year!

Instead, you could set your thermostat to randomly turn on the AC--or drop temperature--to give people chills throughout the night. You’ll be the only one in the know, of course, but it’s sure to leave a few people scared and spooked.

5. Frightful and Foggy

This one requires something you probably don’t have lying around the rest of the year: A fog machine! Set one up on a smart plug and you’ll be ready to command the victorious forces of fog on to your guests anytime you want. 

 6. Dreadful Decorations

There’s one last thing you want to make sure to include with your smart and haunted home -- decorations! Halloween is a great time to really spruce up the decor, so take this opportunity to deck the halls with the grim and grisly. Have fun with it--Halloween only comes once a year!

Smart automation can really help you take your haunted house to the next level! No matter what you are looking to do with your smart home this year--for Halloween and beyond--give us a call! We’ll be glad to lend our haunting hands to helping you make the scariest smart home possible.
