Imagine you and your guests walk in your backyard for a little evening relaxation. With the touch of a button, your favorite music comes on and the lighting sets the tone for the night. Of course, your outdoor home theater is tuned to the NBA Playoffs because you know that one friend wouldn’t make it over unless he could watch the game.

After installing outdoor automation systems like a lighting, audio and home theater system, you’ll never want to entertain indoors again. Plus, the ability to control all these systems through one app on your smartphone makes it almost too easy to impress your guests.

Here are 3 home automation systems that will make you the king, or queen, of outdoor entertaining at your Birmingham, AL, residence.

1. Outdoor Audio System

By far one of the most popular systems for outdoor entertaining is the outdoor audio system, and if you spend a lot of time in your backyard, this one’s a must-have. At Sphere Home Technologies, we use an SLS (Sonance Landscape Series) system, which many claim is the world’s best sounding outdoor audio system.

While any other sound system is going to project your music to the whole neighborhood, our satellite speakers and sub-woofers are strategically placed in order to project the sound inwards to the main listening areas. That’s something not only you, but your neighbors, will appreciate. Plus, other than the sound, you won’t even know they’re there since we find ways to blend them in or hide them within the landscape.

2.  Outdoor Lighting System

Outdoor lighting systems are also extremely popular among those who enjoy entertaining outdoors, especially for those with kids or grandkids. With the ability to light the backyard up with any color you desire, you can imagine how excited the kids get when the yard and/or pool lights up in red, white and blue on the Fourth of July, green and red during Christmas time, or your team’s colors on game day. These lights can even go along with your music, which is entertaining all on its own!

3.  Outdoor Home Theater System

While many don’t often associate watching television with being outdoors, our outdoor home theater systems make it possible and incredibly enjoyable. Unlike your average television, the home theaters we install don’t reflect sunlight, meaning you can watch the big game outside on a bright sunny day and have an absolutely perfect picture. Of course, they’re water and weather-proof so they can sit out in the rain unharmed. The screens even come in anywhere from 37-inches to a whopping 90-inches, so you can find the size that best suits your needs.

Turn Your Birmingham, AL, Backyard into an Outdoor Entertaining Oasis!

While an audio system, lighting system and home theater can make any backyard an oasis for entertaining, there are countless other ways you can automate outdoors. From automated shades to automated fans and smart pools that keep the water at the perfect temperature, the sky’s the limit when you work with Sphere Home Technologies in Birmingham, AL.
