For more than a dozen years, the residents of Miracle on South 13th Street have outfitted their homes in spirited holiday décor that attracts tourists nationwide. This year, the homes will go even further with Samsung SmartThings – making holiday lights and décor easier to manage and more energy efficient.

The Samsung SmartThings ecosystem enables consumers to simply automate their daily routines. From multipurpose sensors that help manage home heating when temperatures drop, to smart outlets turning conventional electronics into connected devices, the Hub becomes the brain connecting products to control home more conveniently from any Android or iOS mobile device. For example, install the Hub and:

  • Use the Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor to see if the door to the closet hiding holiday gifts has been opened by children whose curiosity has gotten the best of them.
  • Connect the Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor with a “Works with SmartThings” partner GE Z-Wave Plug-In Outdoor Smart Switch to power on outdoor holiday lights as soon you pull into the driveway.
  • Use the entire Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit and Water Sensor to keep tabs on your home while you’re traveling during the holiday so there are no leaky pipe surprises when you get back.
  • Help your holiday guests navigate your home by placing a Samsung SmartThings Motion Sensor in the hallway, triggering smart lights to illuminate the way to the bathroom when they wake late at night.
  • Remotely turn off devices you have left on when you’re out holiday shopping.

According to Best Buy, home networking support comprises a growing portion of the five million house calls that Geek Squad agents, the nation’s largest tech support task force, make all over the U.S. every year.
