Imagine stepping into your backyard and having everything perfectly set for your enjoyment - the pool at the perfect temperature, soothing music playing, and the outdoor lights gently illuminating the space. With the wonders of automation technology, this dream has come together to become your reality.  We'll explore how you can effortlessly automate your backyard and pool, creating a relaxing and convenient oasis right at your doorstep.


1. Effortless Smart Pool Control

Experience the luxury of total control by integrating your pool with smart technology. Invest in a smart pool controller, like OmniPL™, that allows you to manage all aspects of your pool from the palm of your hand. With a few quick taps on your smartphone (or smartwatch), you can fine-tune the water temperature, operate the pool pump and filter, adjust water features, customize Colorlogic light colors, and establish personalized pool cleaning schedules. Products like OmniPL™ offer a user-friendly app that allows you to access and manage your pool, spa, and yard from anywhere you are. For those hand-free options, Hayward’s OmniLogic solutions come with voice assistance like Google Home® and Amazon® Alexa®.


2. Enhancing Ambiance with Water Features & LED Color Lights

Enhance the ambiance of your backyard with automated water features and LED color lights for any setting or event.  

Built with vivid LED lights that transition effortlessly from day to night, Hayward water features are the perfect way for pool owners to create a luxurious space that’s truly reflective of their unique taste and style. With options including LED water bowls, sheers, bubblers and laminars, the customization opportunities are endless. 

Like most Hayward products, our lighting and water features are compatible with Hayward’s industry-leading Omni® automation platform. Not only does this enable remote customization and management via the top-rated OmniLogic® app, but it also allows for intuitive synchronization with other pool equipment to create the ultimate backyard showcase. Illuminate your pathways, pool decks, and seating areas on your schedule or with simple voice commands. 

Omni colors and shows can be set to match holidays, party themes, favorite sports teams and more! OmniDirect Mode™, users unlock 20 color options and 7 light shows including Mardi Gras, Voodoo Lounge, and USA to name a few. Setting the mood has never been easier with features including dimming, flicker mode and speed adjustment for light shows. Hayward’s elegant collection of water features and LED lighting offers a range of sights, sounds and sensations to create the perfect ambiance for any occasion.


3. The Power of Smart Entertainment

Create the perfect soundtrack for your outdoor retreat with automated music systems. Weather-resistant speakers can be strategically placed throughout the backyard, providing high-quality sound for your pool parties and relaxation sessions. Sync your music with the pool lighting to set the mood and immerse yourself in a truly captivating experience.


4. Smart Landscaping

Effortlessly maintain a lush and vibrant backyard with smart irrigation systems. These systems can be set on schedules that adjust watering based on weather conditions, saving water and ensuring your plants receive the care they need. Pair this with automated lawn mowers to keep your grass perfectly manicured without any effort on your part.


5. Safety and Security

Automating your backyard also means taking care of safety and security. Install smart cameras and motion sensors to keep an eye on your outdoor space, providing peace of mind when you're away. Consider integrating smart door locks and access control systems to enhance the security of your backyard oasis.


6. Voice-Controlled Convenience

For the ultimate convenience, integrate your automated backyard with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Now, you can control your pool temperature, lighting, music, and more with simple voice commands, making your backyard truly futuristic and user-friendly.


Embrace the future of backyard living by seamlessly automating your pool and outdoor space. Experience the joy of effortless relaxation and entertainment while saving time and energy on maintenance tasks. With the right technology, some Hayward automation and a touch of creativity, your backyard can become a haven of comfort and enjoyment, enhancing your lifestyle like never before.
