Create your own smart haunted house this Halloween

While spiderwebs, pumpkins and costumes are great ways to decorate your  home for the night of fright, these five types of smart gadgets can turn  it into a true house of horrors.


Nothing says “spooky” like dark and decorative lighting. Try installing some Philips dimmable color light strips to amp up the scary.

It doesn’t feel like Halloween without some fog seeping out of the  woodwork. A wireless fog machine is a great way to give your home a ghostly appearance.
