It's happening. Days of soaking up the glorious late summer and early fall weather will soon be replaced by time spent getting cozy indoors. As your home becomes more inviting, why not put some energy (and money) into making it more efficient too? We're giving you the chance to win a $150 Amazon gift card, so you'll have everything you need to take on some home automation projects.

Entering to win is easy, and, with a little help, so is giving your home a tech-heavy makeover. All you have to do is check out the contest rules below, head here to take a short survey, and email your answer to the last question in the survey to with "$150 Amazon Home Automation Survey" as the subject line. (If it doesn't seem to be working, you may have already taken this survey; see below to learn how to enter regardless.) Like magic, you'll be entered to win some economic motivation in the form of a $150 Amazon gift card. Good luck!
