Or how to teach the ghosts in your house to automatically turn the lights off when you leave the room.

Chances are, you’ve seen the trailer for The Conjuring, the James Wan-directed horror film, that’s been playing every night on every channel after 10:00 pm. If you haven’t, be prepared to get freaked out below.

In The Conjuring, the Perron family, who recently moved into their Rhode Island farmhouse, is haunted by a malevolent force that seeks to hurt them. The film is loosely based on a haunting case by famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, one of the first demonologist/trance medium pairings who probed the Amityville house.

In the basement scene of the trailer, the Perrons are in the middle of playing hide-and-seek when, unbeknownst to them, an otherworldly being is slowly turning it into a wicked game. Carolyn is trapped in the basement by a door that automatically shut behind her, and when she lights up a match, a pair of hands appear out of the darkness, claps, and the fire goes out and Carolyn is stuck alone in the darkness.

Scares, thrills and other theatrics aside, how amazing would it be to train your ghastly housemates––if you’re lucky enough to have any––to automatically turn things on and off, or open and close doors and windows? Not only will it save you from spending a pretty penny on home automation systems, but it’s a surefire way for complete home integration! Of course, it would be preferable if your “organic home automation” system isn’t quite as evil as the Perron’s.

The Conjuring will be out in theaters July 19.
