I am looking for ways to simplify/automate my apartment. Things like automatic lighting, automatic fridge contents lists, everything turning on/playing music when I enter my apartment, and any other household hacks. I don't have android OS.

So, I move into my new townhome in July. My hobby lately has been looking for the furniture, accessories, and updates that I can do to it. I can change anything I want in the townhome and leave it for the next person to live there.
What do I do at home?
-Play video games
-Play board games
-get lots of packages when I am not home
-drink with friends [very rarely]
What are some automation things I would be interested in?
-LED Backlighting turns on when I enter the apartment.
-light switches turning on/off all lights in room.
-wifi controlled speakers/lights/music
-music that turns on when I enter the apartment
-My refrigerator to tell me when I am low on milk, bread, etc
-Sleep mode that turns off all lights/noises/music
What are my tools?
I would love to hear any suggestions or anything you already do at your home.
