Light Up Your Outdoor Living Space

on Tuesday, 26 May 2015. Posted in Knoxville Outdoor Technology

School is out, BBQ get-togethers are planned, and flower beds are looking great. Now all there is to do is make sure your outdoor living space is ready for those warm summer days and nights with some tech savvy upgrades. Besides having some great tunes playing through your audio system, or having your own outdoor home theater, have you thought about your outdoor lighting display?

Outdoor lighting control can provide your outdoor living space with a lovely atmosphere, and is a great way to display your beautiful backyard and patio. Outdoor lighting control can also provide you a lighted path when the party stays out a little longer than anticipated, and can be integrated with your home automation system especially if it is a year-round option.    

A year-round lighting system is one that can help illuminate even the darkest of paths, and can create a great ambiance for any get-together. This kind of lighting system can be permanently displayed between patio steps, under sitting areas, or around the pool. Then once everyone is in for the evening can be easily shut down with one push of a button that is integrated in with your home automation system!

Now, if a year-round lighting system sounds a little too much, we suggest a cool portable option! These portable LED cubes and globes can be easily placed where you want, are weatherproof, and can create a colorful display in your outdoor living area. By having these tech savvy products placed throughout your backyard and patio area can liven up any get-together!

So we have given you something to think about, is your outdoor lighting display up to your standards? If not, then let us help you create an outdoor living area that you have always dreamed of!

Keep Your Home Safe While Away

on Tuesday, 19 May 2015. Posted in Knoxville Home Security

Keeping you and your family safe is always your number one priority, but keeping your home safe should be a big deal, too.

With schools now getting out for the summer, those fun filled weekend trips, and family vacations to the beach on the horizon; we want to take a moment to tell you some tips about how to protect your home from potential burglars while you are away.

Our top 5 tips:

1. Security System

Maintenance your security system before your leave. Check to make sure all smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and door and window contacts are free from dust and are properly secured.

Also, make sure your security system panel has been tested and all functions are working properly. Furthermore, if you have security cameras, make sure to keep them clean so that you can clearly see the picture.

2. Lighting

Use automatic light timers throughout the house and have them turn on and off in a way that simulates your normal patterns. By using timers that have more than one on/off cycle can create the illusion of movement from room to room.

Also, the same kind of timers you use on lights can also be used to turn radios or TVs on and off.

3. Curtains

Consider using timed automatic drape and curtain openers. Drapes that are always closed or always open suggest no one is home.

4. Doors & Windows

Make sure to double check all doors and windows. Making sure none of the locks or latches are loose and a potential burglar could easily get into.

5. Know your neighbors

By trusting in a neighbor, they can help keep an eye on your home. For example, instead of stopping your mail and newspaper delivery, ask a neighbor to pick them up and hold them for you. Seeing deliveries being made makes a burglar think someone is at home.

Also, you could ask a neighbor to use your trash can from time to time and to put it out at the curb and bring it back on trash day. Furthermore, if you are going to be gone for a long period, have someone scheduled to cut your lawn.

We hope these tips will help, because we are here to help give you the safety and peace of mind you deserve. Also, if you need any help with maintenance or upgrades to your security system, please give us a call. We would be happy to help!
