“Alexa, make it nice—and spooky!” As Halloween weekend creeps up, now is the time to update your decor with smart home devices and features. From Alexa utterances like “Alexa, trick or treat!” to seasonal Ring doorbell faceplates (including bats and spiderwebs), and color-changing smart light bulbs, the options for spookify-ing your home are endless.
