#TechTalk: Let's Get Our Backyards Tech-Ready For Summer!

posted by Blake Doan -

Summer is officially here!  Yay!!!

That means it is time to whip out the lawn chairs, take off the pool cover, and take advantage of your backyard!

Before you do, though, make sure your backyard is totally tech-ready.

First thing, you have to make sure you can pump the tunes!

Depending on the placement of your router, your Wi-Fi speakers may be just fine in the backyard.  If not, don't worry.  You you can buy a Wi-Fi "repeater" or "extender" for a reasonable rate.  Or, if you want to go the fancy route, you can get a "MESH" W-Fi system that let's you set up a few hot spots around your home.  And, there's always the Bluetooth wireless speaker route.

Now, to get your grass looking pretty, it's also time you turn to tech.  You know how mowing the lawn kind of sucks?  And you know how there's robotic vacuums? Well, wouldn't you know it, there's robotic lawnmowers.  They're a bit pricey, but if you really hate mowing and you want your yard being ready for a good time, all the time, you should definitely check them out.
