Set the Scene for Valentine’s Day at Home with These Tech Accessories

Life is hectic enough. So, this Valentine’s Day, take a time out. Forgo fighting the crowds for a table at your favorite restaurant. Instead, treat your valentine to a tranquil oasis at home and settle in for some private time.

Make sure your home’s cozy.


Rely on the Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd Generation  to make sure your home’s temperature is just right when you walk in the door. Nest creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you typically make and continually adapts.  Nest is able to learn your preferred “home” and “away” settings, and then balances energy savings with total home comfort.

You can even control the thermostat from across the room or across town using the Nest app on your smartphone or tablet.

Set the mood with lighting.


Lighting is a great way to create a peaceful environment or a setting to match your mood. And, a great place to start is with the Hue White & Color Ambiance Starter Kit by Philips.

Simply screw the Hue wireless bulbs into existing lamps or fixtures, then plug the bridge into your wireless router. You can even control up to 50 bulbs at a time.

Hue light bulbs, which can be controlled using the free Hue by Philips app on your smartphone or tablet, can generate up to 16 million colors.

Have a favorite photo of the two of you? Surprise your Valentine by matching the lighting to the memory. Just pull up the picture in the app, tap on a color, and Hue will mimic it.

Surround yourself in amazing audio.


Set the musical tone for your special night in with the UE MEGABOOM wireless speaker.

Slow dance the night away to your favorite slow tunes or romantic ballads streamed to your UE MEGABOOM from your nearby Bluetooth-enabled device*. Or, just sit back and enjoy the evening as the rich, clear and balanced audio fills the room.

Rather watch a movie? The UE MEGABOOM is ready to do its part. Cue up your favorite flick on your tablet or laptop, then use UE MEGABOOM to bring movie theater-like audio into your impromptu theater.

For even better sound, virtually connect two UE MEGABOOMs (or a UE MEGABOOM and a UE BOOM) using the Double Up feature on the UE MEGABOOM app.

Powered by a long-life, 20-hour rechargeable battery, this speaker will keep on playing into the wee hours.

Preserve the memories.


Create a great remembrance of your special evening.  The iPlanet Bluetooth® Selfie Stick is ideal for capturing some fun pictures of your special time together. Take one pic, two videos or dozens of either throughout the night with ease.

The telescopic handle reaches to over 39 inches, allowing you to capture you and your surroundings too.

Easily snap a photo by depressing the shutter button on the Selfie Stick handle to wirelessly trigger the shutter on your smartphone camera. Or take a video by pressing the shutter button once to start recording and again to stop.

Give a thoughtful gift that dazzles.

And, what Valentine’s Day would be complete without the perfect gift.

One idea for her if she’s an iPhone user is the Milk and Honey Valentine's Day Hearts Liquid Case for iPhone 7/6s/6This fanciful covering will bring a bit of fun to her day with its dazzling display of clear liquid, bits of glitter and shiny hearts that flow in a waterfall motif down the back of the case. The transparent, protective smartphone cover will show off her iPhone as she calls, texts and posts. Scratch-resistant technology helps keep both her phone and the design looking fresh.

Another option she’ll love is the Valentine's Day 3-Pack Gift Set from Incipio. Featuring three premium cases for iPhone 7/6s/6, each with a different printed, love-inspired design, the set will give her the flexibility to switch up her case just as easily as she changes her outfit to match her mood or the occasion. The graphic coverings are easy to put on and take off. And, they’ll help protect her phone from accidental drops and dings.

For the gamer guy in your life, there’s the Daydream View VR headset by Google. The headset works with his Daydream-ready phone§ and the included controller. Taking him from the sidelines to the heart of the action, the Daydream View will make it possible for him to, for example, bowl a strike with a swing of his arm, cast a spell with his own magic wand, stand at the edge of a volcano and more.

Take the time this Valentine’s Day to make the occasion extra special by choosing tech essentials from Verizon to set the scene and others to give that go beyond the traditional flowers and candy.
