How To Get Halloween Ready With Hive - #LetsGetLiving

It's Halloween and I have been busy getting ready for the trick or treaters that will stop by. However, I wanted something a bit extra to coordinate with my decor, and Hive was there to my rescue. Read all about it.


I have been using the Hive Smart Home Ecosystem in my home for the past few months, and I have to say that I've been extremely happy with it. I have even had a few friends update their home as well, and they themselves have been happy too. I have been able to cool my home in the summer, and warm it up before I get in during the cooler months with no issues. With Halloween being tomorrow, I want to share a few ways that Hive has  helped as well. I love decorating my home for the holidays, and Halloween is no exception. While I loved my outdoor Halloween decor, with my regular porch light, it looked just that... regular! I wanted pizazz and thanks to Hive I was able to jazz up my outdoor lighting and make it absolutely perfect, even at times a bit spooky. After all, lighting can make or break the way your decor looks. Halloween does NOT look the same with regular lighting!


With Hive's Active Light Color-Changing, I was easily able to match my decor. Everything is controlled from my phone using the Hive app. I can change up the light color when trick or treaters ring my doorbell through  the app, giving it a bit of a spooky glow. The Hive Active Light Color-Changing is not just great for Halloween, but for the Christmas holiday that is fast approaching.


There are so many ways Hive can help you get your spooks in, or just get your home holiday ready.

You can:

Get spooky with your lighting.  With 16 million colors to choose from, the color-changing Hive Active Light helps you match your lighting to any occasion. You can greet trick-or-treaters with a Halloween themed color, or tie it to the Hive Motion Sensor and scare those who dare to approach.

Be one step ahead of trick-or-treaters.  Use a Hive Motion Sensor or Hive camera to be ready with candy, throw on a mask, or set off a more elaborate scare on Halloween.

Automate your  scares. With a Hive Active Plug, you can turn on spooky decorations as trick-or-treaters approach your house, or trigger them to turn on when your Hive Motion Sensor detects movement.
