Speakers and Entertainment

Entertaining is easy with smart home technology. No matter the size of your yard, there’s plenty of room to entertain family and friends. Consider installing a projector screen for summer movie nights! Watch the big game with burgers and a nice flat screen. No matter how you choose the entertainment, there’s technology waiting to help you upgrade.

Music can make or break an entertainment experience. From concerts to action-packed movie soundtracks, the way you listen to music is essential to how you relax. With outdoor speaker systems, the party never has to end. 

There are several ways to integrate smart speakers outside. Spend a lot of time on the patio? Install in-ceiling speakers along with some wireless access points! Want some sound around the pool without giant eyesore speakers? Plenty of systems come disguised as natural features like rocks, letting you maintain the natural flow of your yard. 

Connect directly to your phone or smart home hub with these wireless wonders. Outdoor automated speakers have the highest quality sound, with clean crisp audio and leveled volume. Get the party started, or relax to some chill tunes, with the easiest way to upgrade your space.


The party doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Instead of moving inside, set some lighting to match the timing of the sunset and create a relaxed atmosphere in an instant. Link these lights to your smart home hub and change the settings with simple voice commands. 

Need something with a little more wow? Lighting as decor is both practical and functional. Check out our previous blog on How To Choose Your Smart Lighting to learn more about the type of automated lights.
