Have a High-Tech Halloween with your own Haunted Smart Home

Jordan McMahon for Wired:  THE HOLIDAY SEASON is in full swing, which means we’re all whipping out our decorations and decking our homes out for the festivities ahead. First up: Halloween. That means it’s time to get your spook on. Between monstrous masks that evoke the horror icons who haunt our nightmares (thanks, Chucky), and our favorite home decor (like dangling skeletons and that cobweb gunk you can never seem to fully scrape off), you’ve got plenty of ways to make your house the scariest on the block.

But it’s 2017, and you don’t need to pull out all your decorations just to get in the Halloween spirit. We’re living in the future, and all you need is a smart speaker like Google Home or Amazon Echo and a few connected devices to transform any pad into a creepy crypt fit for the damned.

Spookify

Take your haunted house to the next level with some eerie tunes. Google Home and Alexa work with Spotify, so you can tell it “play my Halloween playlist” and it’ll start blasting your favorite frightful tunes. If you don’t have time to make your own playlist, Spotify has plenty to choose from. You can even hook up your Echo Dot to a few Sonos speakers to fill the whole house with a nice ominous vibe.  Full Article:
