Since the invention of the television, living rooms have been designed around the idea that technology is the centerpiece. But with more and more homeowners adopting a more modern feel of clean, open space, bulky technology doesn’t seem to fit anymore.

With the holidays seemingly around the corner (even if it’s still summer), you’ll probably be hosting some out-of-town guests before you know it!

To add to the frustration and expense, these losses are seldom covered under your warranty since the failure was not the fault of the equipment and because additional damage done to circuits is nearly impossible to detect. And the issues with power extend beyond the occasional lightning strike. “Dirty” power power abnormalities that include voltage variations, frequency variations, low power factors and surges, critically impacts your system’s performance and longevity.

Working with a pro ensures the best design, reliability, performance and service

With the countless smart home technology devices on the market today, how do you know which is the best…and which is the best for you? Smart locks, security devices and connected doorbells are wonderful to have, but they’re much more valuable if they’re fully integrated into your home’s control system. Lighting control, motorized shades and automated garage control are not only convenient, but also a great way to imitate that someone is home while you’re away…particularly if you can access them remotely via your mobile device. So, of all the innovative, must-have technologies out there, how do you determine the right solution for you – for today, for tomorrow and beyond?

The color, weave and design choices of window shades are anything but beige!
We’ve been talking about the benefits of automated window shades for years. They’re an elegant choice for window treatments and offer a variety of unique shading solutions across your home. They filter glaring sunlight, adding comfort while protecting your furniture from fading. They can be programmed to simulate that your home is occupied, acting as a deterrent for would-be burglars. They take advantage of the sun’s warmth or block its heat, saving energy. And the list goes on. But, as extensive as their features and attributes, are their exquisite array of color and fabrics.
