Gender reveal party success!

I never saw this before until I did today. With CoRE and two SmartThings Outlets, I made a smart home gender reveal. I had a Xmas tree with blue light plugged into a smart outlet and a pink light plugged into a seperate smart outlet. Setup the lights to turn on and off so many seconds randomly. Then at a certain time both lights would turn on and then after 1 min the light remaining on would be the gender. Was a total success! Thank you to @ady624 and the whole community for all the continued contributions :slightly_smiling_face: Its a boy!


Nice! And congratulations! :sunglasses::tada::family_man_boy:

That has to be one of the coolest reveals. If you had Phillips HUE it would have been awesome to have that flash blue when the tree stopped. Congrats!

I sexually identify as a bee. From now on, call me Barry Bee Benson. I am a straight BEE student who likes to THINK BEE!

Congrats, where is the video?!!

Also, did you know the sex ahead of time to do the programming or someone did this for you?

i have to find the video from someone else but we didnt know beforehand. i coded it with CoRE and made the ending sequence easy enough for someone as a instructed them to finish the last sequence. i gave them the paper with the gender and all done🙂


Great idea! Love it. Can’t wait to see the video. We did our reveal for our first kid 5 years ago with a cake, and with my second kid with balloons out of a box, but this takes it to another level!!

I needed this idea 3 months ago for my newest & last grandkid. We just did the 2 big balloons with blue or pink confetti inside. I"m always behind on these great ideas. :grinning:
