How to use gadgets for Halloween pranks in your home


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Household, Videos


Halloween Bathroom Prank

If you wanna kick up your Halloween festivities, you may be able to do so with some of the smart home gadgets and consumer electronics that you already have in your posession. One example is using your Hue lights to simulate a thunderstorm or fire happening in your home, which I've been enjoying for the past few days. The ambiance can be enjoyed both from inside the house, as well as by people passing by (especially with a connected Bluetooth speaker chiming in with sound effects, pointed outside an open window!)

For more inspiration, Best Buy has compiled five videos that show how you can use different pieces of technology that you can use to put together you own scary holiday scenes. The one I liked most is the Haunted House Wicked Washroom, where you use Philips Hue lights, a Bluetooth speaker with ambient lighting, and Belkin WeMo smart plugs to allow you to turn on plugged in gadgets remotely. Head on over to Best Buy to check out all five video tutorials.


Scare friends where they'd never expect it: the bathroom. The brains of this prank is WeMo outlet switches and light switches you control from anywhere with a smartphone or tablet. You can make hair clippers and a hair dryer seem to turn on by themselves. Then, kill the lights and make a spooky light and music show come alive.
