OUTDOOR GADGETS Sometimes you go outdoors to avoid technology and reconnect with nature; but sometimes you want to incorporate the daily conveniences you're accustom to into your outdoor area. There are so many gadgets available online, but here are a few that you might find useful this summer! • Smart delivery boxes – if you’re worried about porch pirates, use a delivery box that immediately locks once a parcel is placed inside. • Smart faucet – connect your hoses and sprinklers to a smart faucet to control how much water you use and when you water your lawn/garden remotely. • Bluetooth speakers – a great addition when entertaining or enjoying an evening around the fire pit. • Lighting – from solar lights, to LED strings or permanent bulbs that can be customized from an app on your phone, outdoor lighting options are unreal these days. • Pest and bug repellent systems – Some electronic pest and bug repellent systems use ultrasonic frequencies to deter pests while others use fans to spread repellent scents around the area. • Birdfeeders – high tech birdfeeders have motion sensor cameras that record when a feathered friend stops by for a treat.
