Pool parties are a classic summer activity — and thanks to smart technology, you can enjoy so much more while lounging in the pool. You can use multi-room audio to have music play on every speaker in your home — even your in-pool speakers! You’ll be able to enjoy your favorite summer playlists even while underwater. When it’s time to change up the songs, you can simply tap a few buttons on your phone. There’s no need to have multiple remotes or to go up to each speaker to adjust the knobs.
Al Fresco Dining
Some of the best summer moments involve dining al fresco. That Connecticut summer weather is too good to pass up! While preparing food in your outdoor kitchen, you can turn on something fun on your outdoor TV — perhaps it’s a cooking competition, the latest show trending on Netflix, or a sports game. What’s great about top-notch outdoor TVs is that they can withstand any weather — even intense heat or hot, summer rain — and you won’t have to worry about glare.
When it’s time to eat and it starts to get dark, you can activate a lighting “scene” that produces a soft glow around your backyard. Smart home automation allows you to adjust your lights for the different moments in your life and set them as “scenes.” You can then activate them with the tap of a button, and the perfect ambiances will materialize.
Outdoor Movie Nights
Watching a movie on a warm summer night under the stars — it’s something most people would love to experience. Thankfully, it’s attainable with the right equipment. You can either set up an outdoor TV or have a projector and screen that’s weatherproof. For lighting, you can activate a lighting scene that provides just enough illumination for your outdoor viewing experience.
