    Had to laugh since, as soon as the little kid went up to the door, I thought immediately, “Hmm…if I was that kid I’d stand there and knock a bunch of times!”

    Was going to hook up a SmartSense Motion by the front door and have it trigger a lamp to flash…but my wife thought it was lame and that I’m “not very creative.” (Maybe I should climb on the roof with buckets of fake blood dear?)

      There is a delay built in between knocks so the kid (or you as a child) would have to hang out quite a long time. :)

        Then when you have several groups of kids they knock and don’t get anything. You are sure to get your house egged!
