Bring the Outdoors to Life

Exterior accent lighting on a home at nightAlthough Illinois weather has been playing a nasty joke on us this year, spring is here, and warmer weather is on the horizon (finally)! The arrival of spring weather means we’ll be spending more time outdoors, so let’s enjoy it to the fullest! And where better to enjoy it than from the comfort of your own backyard? Artful landscape lighting and complete audio/visual systems for your deck or patio are just a couple of ways you can enhance your outdoor experience this season.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Exterior Accent Lighting

You work hard to make your house and yard look first-rate, but then night falls and no one can see it or use the space! A few well-placed exterior lights can highlight your home’s architectural features, which not only enhances the beauty of your home, it increases safety. Your house will appear more inviting when welcoming guests, and you can be sure no one will trip over a paving stone or miss a step. Simple accent lighting, such as deck lights or pathway lighting, can make a significant difference in the appearance of your home’s exterior.

Security Lighting & Cameras

Relax in your outdoor haven with the peace of mind that security lighting brings. Not only does it allow your guests to safely navigate your outdoor space during the evening/nighttime hours, but it also detracts unwanted visitors from lurking around as well!

If you’re looking for that extra boost in security, consider installing security cameras. Technology now allows you to keep an eye on your family and assets remotely via computers and smartphones.

Electrical Needs for New Pools and Hot Tubs

Many homeowners don’t realize that a new pool or hot tub has specific electrical requirements to meet codes and ensure safety. It’s important to plan ahead and contact a certified electrician (like Ryan Electrical Solutions!) so you can be sure you don’t encounter any electrical issues down the road.

Lighting Around Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs

Going for a late-night dip? Lights surrounding your swimming pool help keep the fun going long into the evening, which is perfect on those sweltering summer nights. Lighting the area around your swimming pool and hot tub is important for safety too – you’re less likely to slip on a puddle of water if you can actually see it!

Outdoor Audio

Rather than hauling out your equipment each time, and risking it getting wet or ruined, set the mood with an outdoor audio system. It hooks up to your home’s interior audio system, so all you have to bring outside is the control. With speakers situated in key points, the acoustics will be pitch-perfect and you can get your party started in a snap. You can even get creative with decorative landscape rocks that are actually speakers!

Outdoor TVs

Why head indoors for the big game when you can enjoy it from the great outdoors? Technology now allows you to have TVs that can withstand the elements and deliver good image quality.

Whole House Automation
