Ah, summertime…perfect for backyard cookouts, fun under the sun, and quality time with friends and family. Capitalize on summer activities with exciting tech upgrades that make it easier and safer to enjoy the great outdoors. Follow these tech tips from Home Improvement Leads to get the most out of your backyard.

Dance to the Beat of Summer

What’s a pool party or cookout without summer tunes? Stream your favorite music through wireless outdoor speakers that are ready to deal with the elements. Magnolia AV has a line of waterproof and wireless Bluetooth speakers. Innovative technology like built-in drainage channels prevent harmful water build-up from rain or jumping into the pool cannonball-style and splashing the speakers. You can even find in-ceiling speakers to install in your gazebos or patio awning for a surround-sound effect.


Watch Summer Flicks

When it comes to outdoor TVs, direct sunlight can cause electronics to overheat at worst, or cause an unfortunate glare at best. Companies like SkyVue use innovations to safeguard TV tech against direct sunlight and UV rays.

You can even mount these TVs to your grill or cabinets, and not have to worry about rising temperatures. SkyVue’s optically bonded outdoor televisions are crafted with anti-reflective glass, optical-rated bonding adhesive, a high-temperature-compatible LED display panel, and a powder-coated aluminum housing.

That means you can watch all the TV you want without a bad glare, trapped heat, or condensation. So grab some popcorn and kick back on your lawn chairs for an afternoon movie with friends and family.

Light Up Your Backyard

Outdoor lighting has come a long way, and whether you’re aiming for improved safety or a bit of mood lighting, you can do both with enhanced tech. Landscape lighting solutions feature a variety of options, ranging from spotlights to pathway lights, specialty lighting, and step lights.


Security features like motion-sensing technology allow you to watch your backyard when you’re not using it. Smart home automation apps like Creston give you the control to dim lights from your phone. So if you need to turn on some specialty lighting before the party starts, you can do so from the grocery store or while heading home from work. Creston even makes a waterproof remote that you can use from the pool to control your lights, TV, music, and more. Talk about convenience!

Have a blast this summer with pioneering tech, and turn your backyard into party central. Whether you’re just grilling burgers for a few friends or hosting the greatest end-of-summer blast, these tech tips will create convenience like you’ve never seen before!
