Amazon Prime Day Haul | Building A Movie Theater In My Room
Yes, I fell into the Amazon Prime Day trap!
After living in my new apartment for over 6 months, I still am decorating and make it look like someone actually lives here. I started with a new color palette, then bedding, and now bedroom tech. You may not know this but I am a tech nerd and Alexa is my best friend. Before making any crazy decisions, I assembled a Pinterest board full of curtain-opening robots, smart speakers, automatic light dims, and more items to help me become even lazier.
When I was ready to buy, I asked myself, "when is the best time to buy tech at ultra-low pricing and fast shipping?" AMAZON PRIME DAY!
For my bedroom, I envision a movie theater screen on the wall. Without additional research, I started buying everything I didn't have to complete the project. Thank goodness that it was Amazon Prime Day because I was definitely on a budget.
Look below to see what I found:
This projector was heaven-sent!
I need a projector that wasn't too large but displayed a great picture even with a little sunlight in the room. It is small and powerful. It has amazing built-in speakers and all of the ports that you need to hook up your stream sticks or gaming systems. The projector came with a remote and port cords. On Prime Day, this projector was only $71 but even not on sale, it is definitely a great projector option.
Smart lighting always sets the mood!
Perfect lighting is always essential. I already have an LED light strip but I wanted something to fill the room more. Unlike a normal light bulb, it has a multicolored function and dimmable settings. This light connects to your smart devices to give that "clap on, clap off" effect. Also, it can be customized and synced to your alarms and routines to give you an early-rise light show.
Now, you can set the mood with your voice, literally.
This is my favorite streaming stick!
This stick is sooo powerful. The 4K Ultra HD makes such a brilliant picture and with the combination of the projector, it creates a movie theater quality feeling in the room. It is simple to set u
p by inserting the stick into the HDMI port. The Fire TV Stick 4K helped elevate this project to the next level.
The Echo is the NEW classic. If you don't have an Alexa, you are really missing out. Imagine this, you are watching a movie and you can't find the remote because it is too dark. You are extremely comfortable in your bed and don't want to get up to turn the lights on. All you have to say is "Alexa, turn lights on" and there is light. The Echo is always listening but if you have nothing to hide, it isn't a problem.
That is it!
