Using Smart Home Technology Outdoors
A modern smart home uses a network-based digital system that is highly configurable and can be controlled remotely. This means, appliances, locks, security cameras, TVs, speakers, lights, and thermostats are fully accessible. With smart home technology, functionality that was found only in sci-fi, is now available in your home and you can ask the AI assistant through smart speakers to get the latest information. You can also use verbal commands to control any connected device in your home. Smart home technology also extends to your outdoor space and there are ways to implement it outside of your home.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some ways to use smart home technology outdoors:
Outdoor Lighting- outdoor lighting substantially affects curb appeal. When connected with a smart home system, your outdoor lighting is more functional and visually pleasing. Well-controlled lighting will also make your home safer. By default, outdoor lighting is turned on and off based on a schedule. This gives an illusion that someone is at home, although your whole family is on holiday for a few weeks. It is also possible to control outdoor lighting remotely with your smartphone, although you are across the ocean. You may integrate the outdoor lighting with the security system. When the alarm is triggered, outdoor lighting can be turned on and off rapidly to attract the attention of neighbours and law enforcement.
Security- a security system is the most effective if it can deter potential criminals before they enter your home. Advanced solar powered cameras have high resolution, FLIR, and light magnification features, which allows the system to detect potential burglars from far away. When the individual gets near, you will be notified through your smartphone, which gives you the option to enable the security alarm and call the nearest police station. Solar powered cameras can be concealed, while still maintaining good field of view.
Entertainment- during summer, many people enjoy listening to music and watching movies outside. You can put your electronic devices in a canopy, gazebo, or garden pavilion to protect them against harsh weather and sunlight. You may need to install one or two additional wireless routers to ensure good Wi-Fi coverage in the backyard. With verbal commands, you can stream movies and music from the Internet or the home server. Motorised shades, landscape lighting and smart speakers can enhance your outdoor experience.
