Whether you’re decorating the front yard with ghouls and goblins or having a virtual Halloween party, your wifi can help you get into the Halloween spirit.
Colored lights on your porch and creepy music playing in the background can lead the way as trick or treaters head to your front door in search of goodies. Having a strong wifi connection can help your Halloween ideas take a ghostly flight.
So, as you get ready for that annual parade of costumed kids of all ages, here are some ways your Cox wifi will come in handy when you’re passing out that Halloween candy.
Smart Outdoor Lights — There are many smart light bulb options for outdoor lighting that can change colors, feature motion sensors, and help light the pathway for your Halloween visitors. You can even control your lights with a mobile app from inside your home or while you’re away.
Spooky Speakers —Place wifi speakers near your front door or walkway so you can play spooky sounds or fun party music that’s appropriate for all ages.
Virtual Party — Can’t make it to see the grandkids or nieces and nephews in their Halloween costumes? Have a Zoom party, give out awards for costumes and tell funny or scary stories while sipping hot apple cider.
Do the Monster Mesh – Need to remove wifi dead zones in your home? Create a mesh wifi network to broaden your in-home wifi coverage. Cox’s Panoramic Wifi Gateway and Panoramic Wifi Pods work together in your home to form a mesh network and reduce or eliminate dead zones.
Secure Your Wi-Fi — To prevent unauthorized individuals from using your wifi, make sure it’s password protected and follow other tips for keeping your home wifi secure.
