STT 57: IoT Decor for the Holidays

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Hey @matthewcassinelli, I just saw the episode. I use Leviton smart plugs for my Christmas stuff. I found them at Home Depot for $15. I have one for the wreath outside, one for the tree and one for the staircase. It’s not HomeKit, but there is an Alexa skill that connects to the Leviton app. I also use Leviton smart switches and smart dimmers. I also have a few outlets that I’m going to rewire with permanent smart outlets.

All of them can be set up with timers. I use dusk to a certain time for the Christmas stuff. I also have my outside normal lights on the smart switch set dusk to about 2am. Leviton has a nice app (screenshot below)
