1. Invest in a Whole House Audio System.
You'll be able to hear your favorite holiday tunes all over the house. Our systems can stream songs from your smartphones, which is a great way to get all of your friends and family to participate in picking out the music or set up a holiday playlist on Pandora, Spotifiy, or Mog.
2. Hang a Soundbar.
Mounted below a flat panel TV, a soundbar speaker will clear up the floor space (if you are using floor speakers with your TV now) and aim the audio directly at your ears, just as it should be.
3. Automate It.
During the busiest time of the year, it's hard to remember the basics, like turning down the heat before bed or shutting off the lights and turning on the alarm before you race out the door. A wireless home automation system can do the mundane while you focus on the merriment. We use the ELAN g! Home Entertainment and Home Automation system and Lutron lighitng control systems which can add so much value to your home while greatly enhancing your quality of life.
4. Put an IP Camera by the Door.
Able to be accessed from an app on your mobile phone, tablet, or from your integrated home automation system. The IP camera can give you a heads up to carolers at your front door or a special delivery by the UPS team.
5. Trim the House with LED Lights.
Wrapped around your Christmas tree or attached to the exterior of your house, intelligent LED lights can do more than just twinkle brightly. They can cycle through a ranbow of colors or pulse to the beat of a holiday tune.
