The swimming pool is an oasis and the perfect place to keep the kids entertained in the heat. This summer, turn up the fun with a Pool Scene on your Savant system. Program the heat, water pumps and water slide to turn on with the touch of a button. To complete the package, program music and lights to turn on when you’re hosting your next pool party.


The Outdoor Living Room

Turn your backyard into an outdoor living room with a waterproof TV by Seura, which can withstand the elements and still provide a crystal clear picture in the sunlight—it’s great for family movie night under the stars.

What entertainment system would be complete without outdoor surround sound. Sonance creates high quality sound you can control from any smart device. Perfect for those pool parties or a mellow afternoon enjoying the sunshine and a frosty beverage.


Keep Your Cool

The dog days of summer are ahead, but that doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. A smart climate control system like the one from Control4 lets you easily program the temperature in your home and even control it remotely from a tablet or smartphone. Plus, you can have the home cooled before you arrive for your next vacation, which is much more comfortable than waiting for the a/c to kick in while you sweat it out.


Maintain Your Pristine Lawn
