Looking for inspiration for a backyard makeover this spring? Why not consider going high-tech? Smart devices can bring a whole new level of comfort, fun, and convenience to your outdoor living space. Let’s take a look at the top four Smart outdoor trends for 2020.
1. A Smart Hot Tub
The ultimate high-tech toy for outside is, without a doubt, a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. Not only will you receive hours of enjoyment from your spa, but you can also enjoy all the benefits a smart device can offer. The SmartTub™ System connects your smartphone to the spa as soon as you’ve downloaded the app. The app allows you to manage your hot tub just as easily from a distance as from your own backyard.
The SmartTub™ System offers Jacuzzi® Hot Tub owners maintenance tips and videos while also providing energy usage estimates and power outage notifications. The app enables you to update settings, such as energy efficiency and temperature and, when there’s an issue with your spa, the app will send an alert to you and the dealership. With a simple click, you can then request a service call. Its hot tub ownership made easy.
2. A High-Tech Gaming Area
If you have a gazebo, covered patio or screened-in sunroom, an outdoor game room is a wonderful way to use that space. An electronic air hockey table that transforms into a table tennis unit with a simple conversion kit gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Your family can enjoy two game tables with one unit. An electronic dartboard, which keeps score for you, is another great pastime for an outdoor game room. To truly enjoy your outdoor gaming area, make sure the base or floor is level and have some seating for those watching the play.
3. Smart Mood Lighting
If you enjoy a bit of ambiance when you’re relaxing outside, then smart lighting is for you. Ideal for parties and quiet moments alike, these customizable outdoor mood lights are a wonderful addition to any hot tub area or outdoor game room.
Smart lights come complete with app integration, allow you to choose your colour and bulb temperature, and offer control capabilities such as movement sensors and voice activation. Most smart lights can be integrated with your home automation system and controlled via your mobile device or home assistants such as Alexa or Google Home.
4. A Smart Grill and Thermostat
Powered by Wi-Fi and an app on your Smartphone, your smart grill takes the effort out of barbecuing. No matter where you are, you can fire up your grill so it’s ready to cook at a moment’s notice. An infrared burner cooks your meat efficiently and evenly so you can play a game of darts or relax in the hot tub instead of manning the grill. Despite the lack of effort, you get perfectly cooked meat every time, especially if you also use a Smart thermostat to check the internal temperature.
