Having a home theatre and distributed music system doesn’t just mean staying home to watch your favorite movies in your pajamas; it means having everything you need for the ultimate party with your friends. Grab some takeout or prepare a few easy snacks, and get ready to have some fun with your home automation system.
Here are eight fun ideas for hosting the event of the summer at your home:
- Host a themed movie night. You can go with a general theme like “Hollywood movie premier” and encourage fancy attire, or you can select a theme based on a favorite movie with your friends. Imagine your group of partygoers arriving as the crew of Star Trek or adventurous game players from Jumanji. You can find fun ideas for snacks and decorations to enhance just about any theme on Pinterest.
- Create your own “Name that Tune” gameshow. Create your own electronic music playlist and change up the rules a bit to give points to people who are the quickest to correctly identify the song’s name. Give bonus points for identifying the artist or the year the song was released. You’ll have your friends singing along to their favorites in no time.
- Plan a game night. Your video and music systems don’t need to be the center of attention. The proper lighting and background music will add to the ambiance as your group settles in to play your favorite board games.
- Enjoy life-size video games on the big screen. Sure, it can be fun to play video games remotely with shared systems; but there’s nothing like defending your favorite princess with nearly life-size animated characters in your home theater. Sound effects come alive in distributed speakers, and lighting keeps the excitement on the screen.
- Liven it up with karaoke. You don’t need a dedicated karaoke machine to enjoy this activity with friends. Add a microphone to the inputs on your distributed music system and access karaoke songs with lyrics on YouTube. Bravery-enhancing party elements are up to you.
- Host your book club. Not all group events need to be wild and crazy. Getting your friends together in-person to relax, catch up, and discuss your favorite reads is even better with light, classical music playing in the background.
- Gather the kids for a pool party. You can expand distributed music systems to outdoor areas to enjoy music in the backyard, too. The kids will enjoy splashing around and dive-bombing into the pool while listening to their favorite pop songs.
- Start planning to host the ultimate Haunted House for Halloween. Having the ability to control lights, power switches, window coverings, and sound from your mobile device gives you all the tools you need to construct a spooktacular haunted house for your neighborhood friends.
