Garden and lawn season are here and there’s a lot of great tech out there to help you get the most out of the space. Not least of all, when it comes to automating projects and chores. But also for entertainment and relaxation. So if smartening up your outdoor space sounds appealing, read on.
Summary of the top smart tech for your garden space and more
Now, the world of garden and outdoor tech — particularly in the smart home category — is rich. Covering a diverse variety of devices that many may not even know are available for the space in question. From connected lawnmowers and weed-eating robots to speakers, lighting, watering systems, and more.
Further, as is worth noting with all such guides, this guide is not necessarily comprehensive. While not all such devices are created equal, there’s simply not enough space in any article to include every great device. So there are going to be devices that we’ve missed.

And across a wide range of subcategories.
With that said, here’s our take on the top tech devices you can currently buy for your smart home ecosystem in the outdoor and garden spaces.

The Wyze Plug Outdoor is, of course, a shoo-in on this list of best outdoor smart tech for your garden and other spaces.

But also because it comes with an IP64 rating for weather resistance and two individually-controllable plugs. Complete with plug covers to keep things dry and safe when not in use.
Wyze Plug Outdoor also comes with some fairly top-tier features such as voice control via Alexa or Assistant. As well as connections to the associated smart home ecosystems.
