Let’s be real: No one likes setting up Christmas trees. You have to voyage up to your attic, untangle all the lights, figure out which ones work, and then string them around the tree without knocking it over (or getting tangled up in the mess). Sounds like a hassle? It doesn’t have to be, thanks to Mr. Christmas’ smart LED Christmas tree.
The smart home Christmas tree (retails for $300) is compatible with Amazon Alexa, so it’s sure to be the easiest part of your holiday plans. It’s a seven-foot replica of a Douglas fir tree with realistic-looking branches and pine leaves. It uses 400 individual LEDs in myriad colors, including red, green, yellow, blue, purple, cyan and white.
The LEDs also have different preset modes, like multi-fade, multi-twinkle, multi-sparkle and more. You can also schedule when the Christmas tree turns on and off when synced to the Alexa app.
Here’s how it works: Just ask, “Alexa? Set Christmas tree to blue” to activate only blue lights, or “Alexa? Set Christmas tree to candy cane” and watch the tree sparkle with only red and white LEDs. It’s just that simple.
Setup is easy too. The smart Christmas tree comes with three sections, so all you have to do is slide them together in its metal stand. The tree is already pre-wired and pre-lit, so there’s no need to untangle and string up Christmas lights with this faux-fir.
Don’t just take our word for it! Reviewers love the tree, too.
“We have had a quality artificial tree for years with only white incandescent lights, but we wanted a color option upgrade,” wrote a five-star holiday reviewer. “I had concerns that this might be a cheap looking tree with Alexa enabled lights. However after receiving and setting up the tree, I found that this was a high quality artificial tree and the Alexa enabled colored lights was just a bonus!”
This one delighted shopper added, “Easy to install. Comes in 3 parts that are easy to connect. Plug in and and add Christmas Tree from Mr. Christmas in Alexa App and you are ready to go . Can change colors and turn off or on with your phone or using an Echo. One of the easiest Christmas Trees to set up that I have owned.”
