For guests staying with you for a few days, you can provide them with a unique access code to your smart lock, so they can easily come and go while keeping your home secure. Talk about hospitality!
Make your home merry and bright with smart lighting
The holidays are known for lights, and smart lighting makes holiday lights easy and affordable to manage.
Connect your indoor Christmas tree lights to the Vivint Vivint Smart Plug, and you can control those lights from your panel or app. You can even set schedules to turn the lights on and off at a certain time. That means no more walking around the house unplugging the lights each night!
With the Philips Hue integration into your smart home, you can easily control your smart light bulbs. You can have the lights turn on when you walk in the front door or easily turn them all off as you go to bed. Looking for that perfect muted lighting to set the holiday mood? Your smart home can take care of that too with light dimming.
Keep your home cozy and warm
While the holidays may fill your heart with warmth, the December weather can leave you and your home a bit chilly. A smart thermostat keeps your home cozy and warm. You can easily adjust the temperature on the panel, app, or with your voice, but a smart thermostat goes beyond that to manage the temperature for you. A smart thermometer learns your occupancy patterns and can identify when you leave and adjust your temperature accordingly, saving you money while keeping your home just the way you like it.
Be like Santa and see who's naughty or nice
Santa sees you when you're sleeping, and he knows when you're awake. If you're a parent, you know it can be difficult to keep tabs on your kids, let alone knowing if they're up to something naughty. The Vivint indoor camera™ Camera is an indoor camera that lets you keep eyes on what's happening in your home.
You can record video clips with your indoor camera camera and watch them later at your leisure. This is a great way to keep an eye on your kids while you're out holiday shopping. Best of all, while you're out, your kids can easily connect with you from the Indoor Camera with its one-touch callout feature. By pressing the button on top of the camera, your child can connect with you on your phone and can have a two-way conversation. You can see them and know they're OK.
If you want to get a little clever with your indoor camera, you can set it up to see if your kids are sneaking an early peek at presents. You can also use the Indoor Camera camera to record and later relive fun holiday moments like gift exchanges and parties with playback DVR. Who knows, maybe you'll even catch Santa with your indoor camera.
Simplify the season with voice control
As fun as the holidays may be, they can sometimes be hectic and stressful. With arms full of presents or holidays treats, it can be tough to stay on top of things in your home. Voice control makes it easy. With Amazon Echo or Google Home integration, you can issue voice commands to control your smart home.
Want to change the temperature? Just ask Alexa to turn the temperature up. If you're all the way upstairs and can't remember if you locked the door, tell Google Home to lock it for you. Voice control allows you to easily control your home without having to take a break from your holiday festivities.
