At the beginning of the year, you probably planned to have a blast this summer and travel to an interesting destination. However, the travel situation is very uncertain and all experts recommend we stay safely at home. But just because you can’t go anywhere, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your beautiful backyard! In order to make it even more entertaining, here are some of the hottest gadgets and outdoor tech you can incorporate in your outdoor space.
Alarm and Surveillance
Safety at home should always be your number one priority, so make sure to equip your house with quality surveillance and alarm system. With one of these, you can relax in your backyard knowing you and your property are safe. Also, thanks to new technology, you can check who’s at the door with your smartphone or alert the police quickly and efficiently in case you have an intruder.
Propane Fire Pit
Traditional fire pits are nice, but they are not exactly practical, so most people never use them. Well, a modern propane model can be fired up in seconds and all you have to do is enjoy its warmth and ambient glow. And propane is also suitable for roasting marshmallows and preparing various other things, so you can have delicious desserts every night of the week—there’s no better way to cheer everyone up during these uncertain times.
Sure, summers are hot (and they are getting hotter and hotter every year) but if you love to enjoy your backyard deep into the night, you might get chilly. Don’t let the cold chase you inside! You can install practical infrared heaters on your ceiling and enjoy a nice warming glow. Unlike gas heaters and propane-powered poles, these infrared heaters light up on command, are efficient and space-saving.
Outdoor TV System
If you’re planning to staycation, you’ll need plenty of entertainment in your backyard to keep away the boredom. In that case, look into some outdoor TVs that will not only fit perfectly on your wall and provide you with hours of fun, but they will also look pretty nifty at your patio. If you find it hard to keep up with the best TV tech, you can check out the latest outdoor entertainment options from TVs to soundbars. Best models come with practical mounts for your wall, but you can also find TV covers that will ensure your tech has a long life.
Everyone who lives in a mosquito-populated area knows that it’s impossible to enjoy any outdoor space when these little buggers are buzzing around. As soon as the sun goes down, mosquitos are ready to bite and play with your nerves. But, with some tech on your side, you can be ready to chase them away from your yard. Natural mosquito-repelling lanterns release a mist that repels insects while providing you with a nice soft glow.
If you have a pool in your backyard, you’re indeed the lucky ones. However, if an in-ground pool is a little too much for your wallet, you can opt for a nice outdoor spa. New models are perfect for relaxation, massage, and fun splashy time with your kids. And the best part is that these can also be used in the winter if you’re looking for that Aspen-inspired vacation.
In order to feel pleasant and luxurious during your staycation, you need to keep your backyard neat, which includes mowing the lawn. Luckily, thanks to technology, you don’t have to lift a finger to have manicured grass. Robotic mowers work just like Roombas—they automatically mow your lawn without any supervision. These robo-mowers produce zero-emission and provide your lawn with tiny clippings great for the soil and plants.
Charging Station Umbrella
You and your family members probably can’t stand being separated from your devices and why should you? No matter if you want to surf the internet, play music or enjoy some games, you can just plug your device (phone, tablet, or gaming console) into your charging station umbrella and continue using your gadgets in pleasant shade. The charging station is solar-powered so you can save money and the environment.
Who says you have to travel in order to have an amazing summer? With these outdoor tech innovations, you can turn your backyard into an oasis of fun and relaxation and you’ll wait out Corona like a true champion!
