If you’re anything like me and you love going all out with decorations for Halloween, then you know it can be a bit of a hassle making the nightly rounds through the house turning off the giant inflatable spider, smoking cauldrons, moving skeletons and animated zombies. So to make the season of scare a bit less dreadful, add a few Wi-Fi Smart Plugs to the mix to help you control all your spooky ghouls and ghost decorations right from the palm of your hand. Here’s how to do it.
1. Decide what decor to automate
Once you set out all your decorations pick which ones you want or need to automate, pretty much anything with an on or off button that needs to be plugged in will work. Go for the ones that are the biggest hassle to turn on/ and off every night.
2. Set it up
After you’ve made your choice set up your Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W110) and plug it into the nearest outlet. With easy WPS Push Button setup you can have your Wi-Fi Smart Plug out of the box and working within minutes. For step-by-step directions check out this video here.
3. It’s like magic!
Or just technology. Using the mydlink Home App you can now control all of your devices right from your mobile phone or tablet or set schedules to make it even easier.
Bonus! If you have a lot to automate using the mydlink Home App you can take a photo of each decoration to set as the photo in the app.
