Using Your Home Automation System to Make this Thanksgiving Deliciously Automated

November 21, 2013

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we have a few tips from our Home Smart Home magazine to delight the household or your dinner guests. Below are our suggestions for November, but click on the image below to see some great ideas for December as well to prepare you for the Christmas holiday. 

  • You'll surely be busy with meal prep, so rely on Control4 Wireless Switches and Dimmers to automate your lighting, indoors and out. Talk to your dealer about syncing with the sun...on at dusk; off at midnight.

  • Put together different playlists, from Pandora, Rhapsody and more, to inspire you all season, including music selections to entertain your adult friends, holiday fun for the kids; maybe podcasts to chew on while baking, and a little something for cozying up by the fire.

  • Got houseguests? Get smart door locks added to your system. Assign guests a temporary entry code that lets them come and go as they please. Best of all, you can set it to expire automatically when they leave.
