There are many workhorse tech products I swear by that serve seriously important roles in a home, like smart locks and tools that clean your gadgets. But tech doesn’t have to be utilitarian, especially around the holidays, a perfect time to focus on a few things that add a bit of sparkle to your day.
I’m talking about home tech that’s made to impress—and you can get plenty of it at The Home Depot (along with basically everything else you might need for your home).
You should get to know these gadgets now, as the holiday season approaches. They’re perfect to give as gifts that will make people on your “Nice” list super happy. Or, buy them for yourself to trick out your space for hosting holiday feasts and get-togethers. You’ll end up being the star of the season.
Lutron’s Caseta Wireless Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch Starter Kit
Picture this: Your guests are mingling during golden hour and as the sun sets, the lights in your living room gradually brighten to adjust to the darkness. Then, when everyone sits for dinner, you tap your iPhone to dim the lights to that perfect #moodlighting level. The right lighting can seriously change an environment, and the Lutron’s Caseta Wireless Smart Lighting Dummer Switch starter kit can make that happen. It’s also a great gift for friends who travel a lot, since a Smart Away feature will turn lights on and off randomly to keep would-be burglars at bay.
Philips Decor Bulb
Speaking of lighting, adjusting levels isn’t the only way to give it an upgrade. Philips Decor Bulbs give off amber light that creates a warm glow. It’s an effect that creates instant cozy at home and is perfect for decoratively warming up your home for the holidays.
The Roku Premiere is the most ahead-of-the-game way to watch TV available. It’s easy to set up in minutes and allows you to stream in HD, 4K, and HDR. It also integrates easily with Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can tell it to turn on your favorite shows (or the yule log channel). And while it’s the most modern TV tech available, it’s almost a fifth of the price of Apple TV 4K, so it feels like a serious steal.
How’s this for a cold winter night suggestion? Get all three, and then dim your cozy lights to watch a family movie.
