Christmas trees are beautiful once you set it up and fill it with ornaments, aren’t they?
Only to have it wrecked by those darned cats climbing it up, and knocking ornaments off!
How can we prevent cats from going up the trees? Lots of people have different ideas on how to prevent that. Some use orange peels, use cat deterrent sprays, or fencing around trees. I decided I could use smart home devices to deter cats, and it works!
Use a motion sensor, and a smart plug, to operate something cats hate, such as a vacuum, and you got a winning combination!
