Design smart outdoor party lighting for bright summer nights

Transforming your outdoor space into a haven for summer gatherings is easier than you think. By hanging smart LED lights and even syncing them to music, guests will instantly feel transported into a vibrant escape for good times and relaxation. 

Twinkly smart LED lighting lets you seamlessly control and customize the atmosphere of your space using only the Twinkly mobile app and a Wi-Fi connection. Easily and intuitively choose the colors and animations that best fit the tone and aesthetic you are trying to set. You can even create your own from scratch to match the occasion or the theme of the day. Group and sync multiple sets of lights for a coordinated installation. You’ll never host a summer party without Twinkly lights again!

When it comes to planning your lighting layout, the first thing you need to do is measure the outdoor space you will be illuminating and make sure that you have enough lights to cover your layout.  Check that you have the necessary tools to secure your lights, like hooks or nails, and that you know where the outdoor power outlets are located to connect and turn on your lights. 

Here are our favorite outdoor lights for summer nights and ideas for how to use them to set the stage for spectacular evenings spent in great company.
