Enhancing Outdoor Spaces with Smart Home Technology

Enhancing Outdoor Spaces with Smart Home Technology

Are you looking for ways to enhance your outdoor living space?  As we are finishing up another smart home project for one of our clients, we wanted to show some examples of our work and some ways that you can upgrade your outdoor space with smart home technology.  Our client has graciously allowed us to take some pictures and video of their beautiful 3 story home in Downtown Savannah.

Possibly the most breathtaking aspect of this home is actually outside the structure itself.  This house was designed with amazing use of its outdoor spaces, including a private courtyard and a rooftop area, granting its owners and guests a fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding area.

Starting with the rooftop area, there is a 50-inch LG flatscreen television that had been weatherproofed by Sealoc.  The proprietary weatherization process can take an off the shelf television and shield the internal electronics from weather, adverse elements and corrosive environments, increasing the television’s lifespan and usefulness.  Although you can’t really tell from the video above, the television is comfortably viewable in partial sunlight.  However, on the bright sunny day that we recorded this video, the onscreen images were a bit hard to see, especially with the glare.  In those instances, the owners have a retractable sunshade that completely covers the television viewing area.

Most of the smart lighting, as well as the outdoor speaker system has been seamlessly integrated in and around the rooftop vegetation.  This keeps the rooftop area beautiful without being visually cluttered with unnecessary technology.  The outdoor speaker system is integrated into the rest of the whole home audio via Control4, so the family and guests can comfortably listen to the television or enjoy the music that is being piped all throughout the house.

The downstairs courtyard area, as well as the entire home itself, is monitored by security cameras that discreetly blend into the environment.  Every entryway and window is protected by alarm sensors.  The entire security system, including the camera feeds, smoke, fire and entry alarms are all integrated and controllable by the Control4 panels installed throughout the home.

The courtyard features smart lighting and outdoor speakers, discreetly nestled amongst the trees and bushes of this picturesque garden.  Just like the rooftop area, every aspect of this outdoor system is controllable and integrated into the rest of the home.  Even the water fountain control is integrated can be turned on and off with a simple click of a button.  This courtyard garden this exudes classic old Savannah charm while providing state of the art safety and enjoyment for its owners and guests.

Using Professional Installation Services

Have you ever had a television mounted or some other equipment installed and you weren’t completely satisfied with results?  Maybe the installers did a sloppy job and you were left with a tangled mess of wires hanging around?  Or the installation was done with a “quick and dirty” mindset and afterwards you had a mess to clean up?

You are not alone.  Unfortunately, many installation technicians will use shortcuts and hacks to shave time off of their work.  Sometimes they just don’t pay close enough attention detail.  Sometimes they rush through their work because of demanding workloads.  Sometimes the technicians are inexperienced and make careless mistakes.

We have all been there, and it makes you feel like you didn’t quite get what you paid for.  But if you are like our typical clients, you demand quality, professionalism and attention to detail.  You want the end result to function properly and look like it is seamlessly blended into the rest of your home or office.

Our professional installation technicians are true craftsmen and take pride in their work.  We obsess over the little details.  We keep the visible wires to an absolute minimum.  We strive to provide a finished product that has a clean, professional, seamless look.

We love to take on challenging projects.  Just like the pictures above, mounting televisions to textured walls requires expertise, attention to detail and careful planning and execution.  If you are a person that desires excellence in design and execution, then contact us about your project.  If you want the best, contact the best in the area, Allegiance Technology Solutions.  Headquartered in Pembroke, GA, we normally service Savannah, GA and the surrounding areas, such as Skidaway Island, Tybee Island, Statesboro, Pooler, Richmond Hill and Hilton Head SC.  And if you are located outside of the Greater Savannah area, we are always open to working with clients from in any area if the partnership makes sense.
