With the winter chill setting in, there’s no better time to make your life a little cozier by embracing the wonders of automation.

As a TaxDome user, you’ll already be well aware of the power of automation and how it can help streamline your practice, but that isn’t the way you can save time this winter. Whether you’re trying to meet a deadline or just looking for ways to simplify your daily routine, automating tasks can free up time for more enjoyable winter activities. 

In this blog post, we’ll explore seven things you can automate outside of TaxDome to make this winter a little more relaxing and enjoyable.

Smart thermostats for winter comfort

Say goodbye to chilly mornings and freezing nights with a smart thermostat. These devices allow you to automate your home heating system, ensuring that you wake up to a warm and cozy living space without having to fumble with the thermostat each day. Many smart thermostats also learn your preferences over time, optimising energy usage and saving you money on heating bills.

This is similar to our recurrence schedules, which automatically create jobs based on dates pre-set by you. So you can forget about manually adding accounts to your workflow and spend some quality time with your loved ones instead.

Automated snow removal

Dreading the idea of shoveling snow from your driveway? Consider investing in a robotic snow blower. These automated machines can clear your driveway with minimal effort on your part. Some models even offer smartphone connectivity, allowing you to schedule snow removal or control the device remotely.

Winter garden care with smart sprinklers

Don’t forget about your outdoor plants during the winter months. Smart sprinkler systems can be programmed to adjust watering schedules based on weather conditions, ensuring that your garden receives the optimal amount of water at all times. This hands-free approach to garden care allows you to enjoy a thriving landscape without braving the cold.

To ensure that you never forget anything in your practice, be sure to check your TaxDome Inbox+, where you can track all your internal and external activities and stay on top of things to help you manage your firm. 

Automate your holiday lights

Make your home festive without the hassle of tangled wires and manual switches. Invest in smart plugs or smart light bulbs that can be controlled through a smartphone app or voice commands. Schedule when your holiday lights turn on and off, and even change colors to suit different winter celebrations.

Automated winter wardrobe selection

Streamline your morning routine by automating your winter wardrobe. Use a smart closet organiser app to plan your outfits for the week, taking into account the weather forecast. This not only saves time but also ensures that you’re dressed appropriately for the day’s conditions.

It’s not only winter wardrobes that can be streamlined but also TaxDome organisers. You can start with a template that you download from our library and then add or remove questions as you wish. Alternatively, you can start completely from scratch to ensure that you’re requesting everything you need and use conditional logic to improve the user experience for your clients.

Automated hot beverage station

Nothing beats a warm cup of cocoa or coffee on a cold winter day. Set up an automated hot beverage station with a smart coffee maker or kettle. Schedule brewing times, control the temperature remotely, and have your favorite warm drink ready for you when you need it most.

While there’s no drinks feature in TaxDome (unfortunately), we do recommend having a coffee in the morning when you’re feeling a little drowsy!

Automate your winter reading list

If you love curling up with a good book during those cold winter months, automate your reading list with e-book services. Set up personalised recommendations or schedule reading times to receive book suggestions based on your preferences. This way, you’ll always have a captivating read waiting for you.

Looking for a section on TaxDome to write down notes to share with your team? Head over to our Wiki page function and create engaging resources that your team can refer to. You can even make it more engaging by adding multimedia elements such as pictures and videos.


This winter, let technology work its magic and make your life a little more comfortable and enjoyable. From a cozy home environment to effortless outdoor maintenance, automating tasks allows you to focus on what truly matters during the winter season — creating warm memories with friends and family. Embrace the chill and let automation be your winter companion.

When you get back to work, save even more time to spend with your loved ones by using TaxDome — the automation platform that can completely revolutionise your firm.
