Set the scene for the season with a home dressed in seasonal style and elegance. With tasteful landscape lighting and a high-end security system, you can rest assured every guest is safe and secure.
A landscape lighting installation boosts your home’s curb appeal and helps it stand out in your neighborhood– giving your guests a guide for which place is yours. Themed LED bulbs come in a whole spectrum of holiday hues that make the season bright.
Both inside and outdoors, simply turn on your integrated audio to play a festive playlist or sing-a-long songs for everyone to enjoy as they arrive. You’ll enhance your home’s holiday atmosphere while entertaining the guests too.
With multiple people walking through your door your holiday party begins, you want to keep an eye on who all is entering at all times. Smart lock and doorbells are a great way to keep track of everyone. Your system’s video cameras let you know right away who is at your door, show you live footage on your smartphone or tablet. Push a button, and the doors will unlock – letting your friends in with no trouble at all.
The mood you set with your entertainment center throughout the evening is crucial to your guests’ experience. Delight friends and family with holiday playlists and albums on streaming services like Spotify or Pandora.
Using your smart device, you can choose from a virtually endless library of songs and music. Your audio video distribution system will play tunes throughout your home, and in specific areas where your guests are. With in-wall speakers, they’ll hear the music but won’t won’t be distracted so your festive décor and interior design can shine.
Once everyone has arrived or is settling down after dinner, you can impress your guests with a top-notch home theater system setup – in your dedicated cinema or your multi-purpose media room.

Once the party’s meal is ready, you can use a home intercom to make the announcement and gather everyone in the dining room. It’s so much easier than shouting over your happily conversing guests.
