Centralized Controls

A smart home control system allows homeowners to centralize the control of their smart technology features into one remote or application. Smart technology features perfect for outdoor entertainment include lighting, music, video, and security. With one easy-to-use application, managing these features becomes simplified; you won’t have to worry about learning multiple systems when they are all combined into one.

Set a Scene

With a smart control system, you can program the perfect scenes to match your favorite outdoor activities. For instance, if you want to settle in for a movie, the scene could dim the patio lights, turn up the surround sound and start the video. Or, if you wanted to host a pool party, the scene could turn on the party lights, illuminate the pool and landscape lighting and turn up the music. No matter the event, you can program the perfect scenes to elevate your outdoor entertainment experiences.


With high-quality technology sitting outside, homeowners sometimes worry about theft. But, with surveillance cameras watching your outdoor entertainment, you can worry less and enjoy more. Smart security systems help keep a close watch on outdoor areas, even while you’re away. With smart control, you can access cameras and receive security alerts remotely from any smart device, such as a smartphone or tablet.

Additionally, you can use smart security features to manage access to your backyard area. For example, if you have a gate, use access control features to let in guests without having to leave your outdoor areas.

Increased Safety

Outdoor entertainment can be great fun, but outdoor areas can become the source of accidents when the sun goes down. Increase the safety of your backyard with strategically placed lighting that can assist visitors with finding safe pathways. To ensure safety, you can remotely control lighting features such as these, set a timer, or use a motion-activated sensor.
