Summer Is Here. It’s Time for Smart Lighting Control in Your Backyard

13 June 2018

Do you feel it in the air? It’s summer – that means it’s time to get out and enjoy your backyard.

But the party doesn’t stop after the sun goes down. There’s still plenty of fun to have, if you have the right equipment installed.

Specifically, smart lighting control. With a single touch, all your outdoor spaces can look brighter. Smart lighting helps enhance the beauty of your home while adding a greater sense of safety to all your outdoor areas.

In this blog, we’ll explore some of the ways you can add lighting to enhance the summer nights. Want to learn more? Keep reading.



One of the most popular forms of outdoor lighting for homeowners throughout Alberta is landscape lighting.

The reasons are simple: it looks gorgeous and helps keep your property safe.

Landscape lighting usually consists of fixtures installed throughout your yard or other outdoor areas. The devices can remain on full display or hide within foliage. Homeowners can enjoy the same level of control they experience with their indoor lighting system.

From your smartphone, tablet, or dedicated controller, you can create a layered look, highlighting the parts of the yard you love and downplaying the ones you don’t.

In fact, you can craft unique arrangements and save them, so you can return to them with a single touch.


Another way to add a touch of practical beauty to your property is with walkway lighting. Typically placed along walkways or under stairs, these fixtures help you see where you’re going.

Integrated controls mean you don’t need a reminder to activate them when you’re arriving home late from work. Sensors will turn them on – along with your connected landscape fixtures – as soon as the sun goes down.

Plus, thanks to bio-degradable, LED components, you won’t worry about causing damage to the surrounding foliage.


Some of the most fun you can have at your home is in and around the pool. But it should come as no surprise that it’s also one of the most hazardous areas on your property.

You can alleviate some of the stress with in-pool lighting. Whether you want to keep an eye on the area late at night, take a dip in the dark, or just add a brighter look to your outdoor spaces, pool lighting is a perfect choice.

Plus, fixtures also typically feature LEDs. That means you won’t have to change them very frequently and you can trust that they operate efficiently.
