The concept of “date night” felt foreign when you and your sweetie first met. Every night was date night back then! But now, with the kids, the job and the chores, your favorite date nights involve a bowl of popcorn and a romcom with your sweetheart after the kids go to bed. 

But just because you stay at home doesn’t mean you can’t boost the romance with smart home technology. Learn how a “date night smart home automation routine” can transform your family home into a cozy, lover’s paradise.

 

The Aroma of Popcorn Is in the Air

Take a deep whiff of the aroma. You surreptitiously inserted a bag of popcorn into the microwave earlier in the day to prepare for the main event. After a verbal command to your PointCentral smart home assistant, the microwave starts, and the smell of popcorn is in the air. 

Now the smart lights are dimming and changing from bright-white to softer flavors of yellow and orange. The smart shades are lowering to cover the windows, and the smart thermostat is adjusting to a cooler temperature – perfect for snuggling under blankets on the couch. 

 

Romantic Music Is Tickling Your Ears

As the popcorn pops, your favorite love song starts playing on the sound system. You and your sweetheart saunter to the kitchen to pick up the steamy snack, lighting candles on the way. After drizzling your popcorn with hot butter, you slow dance back to the living room while holding your snack.

Before relaxing under the covers, you and your partner linger in a long embrace. Something is happening… Your mood so fantastic that you almost skip the movie. But, good things take time, right? And weren’t you going to watch Dances with Wolves?

 

Time to Snuggle 

As you cozy up together on the couch, the movie starts, and you notice your phone is blinking. Don’t worry! It’s not an interruption—just a signal that your prescheduled Uber Eats order went through. Sushi and hot sake will arrive at your doorstep in 45 minutes.

Whether you’re watching When Harry Met Sally, Love Actually, Mr. Smith – or Space Balls for the thousandth time – the choice of film doesn’t matter. The real entertainment is sharing a beautiful moment with the person you love.
