There’s a wide range of technology solutions built to withstand outdoor elements without compromising performance. Add music, video, and lighting control to make the perfect entertaining space or a personal retreat for relaxing after a long work day.

Security Systems

Security Systems


A safe and secure home for your family needs to be smart enough to alert you when you’re home or away. Preview streaming video from security cameras right on your touch screen display or iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device. At home, use your touch screen as a video intercom system so you can see who’s at the door. While you’re away, disarm alarm systems to let in the housekeeper or babysitter, then activate it as soon as they leave. Integrate with a lighting control system so lights turn on if an intrusion is detected or a dim pathway is lit when the smoke alarm is triggered.

Lighting and Control

Lighting and Control


Lighting and shades creates a more secure, comfortable and energy-efficient home. As you approach your driveway, exterior flood lights automatically turn on, lighting the pathway from your garage to your home. Should you hear a strange sound in the middle of the night, with the push of a single button, you can turn on all the lights in and around your home. When you leave for vacation, you press one button so that the lights turn on and off and the shades open and close during pre-set times to create a lived-in look.
