Harness the Texas Sun with Home Lighting Control

Take Advantage of the Light When You Want It

Harness the Texas Sun with Home Lighting Control

We all know that the Texas sun makes things hot for a good part of the year. Despite our share of cold fronts from the North in the winter, soon enough we’ll be settling into the six-month summer season. That means that the sun will be warming your house and your now dormant air conditioning will be springing into action.

In the warm (or should we call it hot) season, it’s likely that you have to use your window treatments to block out some of the sun. UV rays can fade furniture, carpets, and other interior furnishings. The heat can make your thermostat drive your air conditioning to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. In the summer, some Texas homes with large windows are actually somewhat dark inside, because people are drawing window shades, blinds, and shutters closed to keep out the heat.

That darkness might lead to using artificial lighting more even though there's a blazing sun outside. Does that seem paradoxical? It is, but there's a better way. It involves home lighting control and motorized shading, a dynamic duo of smart technologies that will keep your Park Cities home comfortable, well-lit, and efficient no matter what the season.

Extend Your Home’s Audio and Video Entertainment Outdoors

Maximize Your Outdoor Spaces This Spring and Summer

Extend Your Home’s Audio and Video Entertainment Outdoors

It’s been a wet, cold, and not-so-sunny winter in Dallas this season. But this is Texas, and we know that warm weather and sunnier days are just around the corner. With warmer weather, we can plan to spend more time outside. The pool may not warm up till May, but there will be beautiful Spring weather to enjoy on the patio. Whether your thing is relaxing outside with a good book, working on planting some new annuals or tending to a rose garden, or enjoying a meal outside with friends and family, the great outdoors beckons.

While we enjoy our outdoor spaces, the lure of our home’s audio and video entertainment sometimes keeps us inside. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The same entertainment sources that you have in the family or media room or anywhere else – TV, streaming music and video, your music collection – can all be enjoyed outside with the right additions to your home audio video system.
