Tech Gadgets for a Fun and Safe Halloween
DULUTH, Minn. – Halloween is just around the corner and homes and yards are decorated all across the Northland.
This morning, Rachel Agurkis, a Solutions Specialist for Verizon Wireless, visited FOX 21 to chat about some gadgets perfect for the spooky season.
- Ghoulish lighting – With Philips Hue Lights, you can put the haunt in your house. Turn the lights on and off with your smartphone, and change to any of 16 million available colors. In addition, download the Hue Halloween app and easily pair spooky sounds with light animations.
- Boo! – Leave the UE Wonderboom waterproof Bluetooth speaker in the bushes to play music or scary Halloween sounds. With 10 hours of battery life, it’ll last the entire trick–or–treat time and then some!
- Treat seeker alert – Be ready for each costumed character with the Canary Flex cam. This weatherproof camera connects to your Wi–Fi and lets you see live what’s going on outside. And, using its alert feature, you can be notified any time a new group walks up. Pro tip: carve out a pumpkin, place the camera inside and now you’ve got a clever cam o’lantern.
- The Phantom of the Bathroom – Where’s the place your guests would least expect a prank? The bathroom of course. Using a Wemo Mini Smart Plug, you can make it appear as if your guests are not alone. Whatever you plug into the outlet – from a beard trimmer to a hair dryer – can be turned on “magically,” simply by using the included app.
