If you want to get the most out of your hot tub installation and backyard living space, smart technology can help. There are a variety of options available to the tech-savvy shopper, but there are a few selections that can really take your spa experience to the next level. For the ultimate in convenience and enjoyment, we recommend the following backyard additions.
1. A SMART HOT TUB
When shopping for your hot tub, take the technology each tub offers into consideration. Not only does a smart spa make ownership and maintenance easier, it allows you to manage your hot tub even when you’re not at home.
The Jacuzzi® SmartTub™ System truly takes your spa ownership to the next level. Once you’ve downloaded the SmartTub™ System app to your smartphone, you’ll have access to a plethora of maintenance tips and videos. You’ll also be able to update settings, such as energy efficiency and temperature and will receive energy usage estimates and power outage notifications. The system will even notify you and your spa dealer if there’s a problem with your hot tub. You’ll then have the option of clicking a link to schedule a service call.
2. HIGH-TECH MOOD LIGHTING
Nothing sets the stage better than appropriate lighting. Whether you’re hosting a party or are enjoying a romantic soak in the hot tub with your partner, the right lighting enhances the moment.
Choose outdoor lights that offer customization of colour and bulb temperature as well as app integration and control capabilities such as movement sensors or voice activation. If you choose fixtures that integrate with your home automation system, then they can be controlled via your assistant of choice such as Alexa or Google Home.
3. A SMART CEILING FAN
You may be wondering why you should install a ceiling fan outside, or above your hot tub, for that matter. There are a few good reasons you should consider doing so. Smart ceiling fans, which are Wi-Fi enabled, are a wonderful cooling mechanism — and that comes in handy when you want to use your hot tub in the summer. Even in the spring and fall, a fan can be welcome. It aids in keeping your face cool despite the fact that your body is soaking in 100-104°F water.
Perhaps the best reason to install a smart ceiling fan, however, is that it really helps to keep mosquitoes and other bothersome insects at bay.
Controlled via your smartphone or a home assistant like Alexa, these fans can be hung from a pergola, gazebo, verandah or any other sturdy structure that you may have above your spa.
