Using Home Automation to Enhance the Holiday Season
The busiest season of the year is upon us – and with it often comes a wave of stress and anxiety as we plan dinners, schedule events, and deal with outings seemingly every day of the month. With new smart home automation options, simplifying your holiday season may be easier than you think.
Here are some neat ideas to enhance the holiday season with your automated home.
Smart lighting in your home can give a versatile touch to your holiday season. Planning ahead means that you can have settings prepared to light the areas of your home you want to showcase, and darken the areas you would prefer that guests ignore. Plus, you can change the brightness of your lighting with just a simple command from your smart phone.
Set the tone of your holiday parties with a seasonal playlist. Your smart home allows you to seamlessly pick a playlist from your phone, and not have to worry about changing the songs or planning what comes next. Plus – if the music isn’t matching the mood of the party, streaming services give you endless options for festive tunes.
This time of year is, unfortunately, a high time for petty crime. With your smart home you can make sure your home and belongings stay safe and secure. Options such as wireless monitoring from you phone mean that you can monitor what is happening when you are not there. Doorbell cameras will let you know when that package you are expecting shows up, so that you can retrieve from the doorstep right away.
With your automated home, the holiday season can be a little less stressful for you. From safety features, to fun lighting displays – having an automated home means less stress during the holidays.
