USA TODAY: Here’s how Home Alone’s Kevin McCallister would booby trap his home 2017

How could Hunter’s Symphony smart home ceiling fan help Kevin McCallister from Home Alone set the trap for the burglars? USA Today had some ideas.

“When Home Alone debuted more than 25 years ago, poor Kevin McCallister, left behind by his family, was forced to use regular household objects like glue, paint cans, wire, and blow torches to protect his house (and himself) from would- be robbers. Kevin made do with his supplies, successfully booby trapping the house, but we can’t help thinking his would have been a lot easier if he had today’s smart home technology on his side.

Here’s how we imagine Kevin would booby trap his house 2017 with the help of the latest home tech.”

Tag & Tibby: Modern Living Room Before & After

Julia of Tag & Tibby added the Signal smart home ceiling fan by Hunter Fan Company to her modern global-inspired living room. Through the Hunter SIMPLEconnect Wi-Fi app, she was able to pair the transitional ceiling fan with her Amazon Alexa.

“This post is written in partnership with Hunter Fan.

When we moved into our home 3 years ago we brought with us 1 petite sofa from our Saint Paul house to place in our living room. Our move from Minnesota to North Carolina doubled our square footage–and it has taken time to fill the space! 3 years ago we said hello to brass trim on the fireplace and mini blinds on all the windows. It wasn’t a space that needed to be gutted, but it was PLAIN. I brainstormed ideas for high ceilings and later a $300 leather sectional from Craigslist.”
