Spook It Up This Halloween with a Control4 System
Control4 Home Automation Makes Scary Easy
OK, first we have a disclaimer. We realize that by the time you read this, Halloween may be only days away. If you didn't already have a Control4 system in your Alys Beach, FL home, you wouldn’t be able to take advantage of these tips for a spookier, more automated Halloween. That said, there are so many more reasons to get a Control4 smart home system, and we could get you all set up with one for the next set of holidays.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s have a little fun. Explore three ways to make your haunt (er, house) the spookiest one on the block for Halloween. And if you already have a Control4 system, what are you waiting for?
Do you have an outdoor audio system? Halloween is a perfect time to use it. Fire up spooky sounds or a playlist and scare the kids a little – and maybe some adults too! Even if they don’t scare easily, they’ll come and mercifully help take all the candy you overbought at Publix. Need help with music selection? Try this one on Tidal or this in Spotify! It’s easy to call up these selections on a Control4 whole-home audio system and direct it to your outdoor speakers. Control the volume from your smartphone, tablet, or a Control4 AV remote like the Neeo. And with a smart doorbell like the Control4 Chime, you can play a scary sound when they ring the doorbell too! But don’t go too far – you really want that candy gone.
Control4’s flexible automation makes scary lighting easier than any store-bought solution. Speaking of the Chime doorbell, it can trigger flickering outside lights along with frightening sounds. You can also surprise visitors with the witch and mummy that suddenly appear from nowhere on your lawn when they approach your front door. Control4 lighting control and When>>Then automation makes it easy to create your own scary routines for Halloween. And once saved, you can reuse them next year with the tap of a button.
Keep It Safe
Your Control4 system can keep it safe, too. The Chime doorbell's high-resolution camera helps keep an eye on the area in and around your front door. Additional security cameras can also be viewed in your Control4 app or on your TV screen, so you can ward off any potential egg throwing or pumpkin smashing ghouls that might want to spoil the fun. Finally, if you're not home on Halloween, Control4’s unique Mockupancy feature manipulates your lights, motorized window treatments, and even TVs and sound to make it appear as if you’re home and avoid any potential vandalism.
