To enjoy the holiday season without stress, you might want to consider upgrading your home with some smart technology. Here are five ways a smart home makes the holidays easier.
Automate your lights
Smart lighting allows you to control your lights from your smartphone or voice commands. This means no more getting up and down to turn lights on and off. You can also set schedules for your lights to turn on and off at specific times, so you never have to worry about leaving a light on when you’re not home.
In addition to convenience, smart lighting can also help you save energy. By scheduling your lights to turn off when you’re not home, you can avoid wasting energy. You can also use smart lighting to create festive scenes, such as twinkling lights or a slow fade to black.
There are a number of different ways to automate your lights. One option is to use Wi-Fi smart plugs. These plugs allow you to connect your existing lamps and other lights to your Wi-Fi network. Once your lights are connected, you can control them from your smartphone or voice commands.
To orchestrate your smart lighting seamlessly, consider incorporating an Aqara Smart Hub into your smart home setup. The Aqara Smart Hub (bộ điều khiển trung tâm tương thích Aqara Hub) acts as a central control point, allowing you to manage your smart lights, smart thermostats, and other smart devices from a single app. It also facilitates automation, enabling you to create customized lighting routines for different times of the day or specific events.

Protect your packages
We know you didn’t create the perfect holiday shopping list and scour the Internet for gifts just to have them stolen by a porch thief. With smart home devices, you can monitor and secure your porch from anywhere.
For example, smart cameras and doorbells, such as those compatible with the Apple HomeKit ecosystem (hệ sinh thái Apple HomeKit), provide real-time monitoring of your doorstep. Smart locks, another essential component of a secure holiday home, offer an additional layer of protection. These locks allow you to remotely lock and unlock your doors, ensuring that your packages remain safe even when you are away from home.

Control your thermostat remotely
You don’t have to be at home to control the temperature of your rooms. A smart thermostat lets you set different zones for different areas of your house. For instance, if you’re cooking a lot in the kitchen during the holidays, you can reduce the heat in that zone to avoid overheating.
Similarly, if you have guests who prefer a warmer environment, you can use your smart thermostat to make their room zone cozy. And the best part is, by avoiding unnecessary heating or cooling in certain parts of the house at certain times, you may lower your electric bill, even with all the festive decorations!

Simplify holiday cooking
One of the challenges of hosting holiday gatherings is preparing delicious meals for your guests. Smart home devices can help you save time in the kitchen and enjoy more quality time with your family and friends.
Use the following devices to prepare and clean up food more easily.
- Automatic pot stirrer: Some recipes call for endless stirring to get the flavors and consistency just right. With an automatic pot stirrer, you can multitask more effectively and save your arm strength for snowball fights.
- Robot vacuum: Instead of sprinting through your home with your vacuum and its mile-long cord in tow, let a robot vacuum handle your spilled breadcrumbs and give yourself more time to put the finishing touches on your ugly holiday sweater.
- Automatic Composter: Make fewer runs to your trash bin with an automatic indoor composter. Your fruit and veggie scraps get a second life, and it’s good for the environment, too!
Keep track of holiday energy consumption
During the holidays, energy consumption typically spikes due to lighting and heating demands. Smart home devices can help manage and reduce this surge. For example, the Sense Energy Monitor or similar systems can be installed in your home to provide real-time data on electricity usage. This allows you to identify and reduce excess consumption during the energy-intensive holiday season.
