While May is all about the amazing mom’s out there, June is for the dad’s. You want a way to show your husband just how thankful you are for all he does, but you’re itching to do something different and more special this year. Chances are that you’ve probably heard your husband talk about home automation features many times before. You may have even contemplated surprising him in the past, so what better time to move forward?
Only problem is that you have no idea where to start! You’ve heard your husband mention countless features that he wants to implement into your home – how do you pick which one to begin with?
Though he’s probably going to be happy with whatever you choose, today we’re going through the top four home automation features he’ll definitely love to help you narrow down your options. If you have any questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We design custom solutions and like to get to know our customers before we begin – that way, we can create a solution that works for you, your family and your lifestyle!
1. Home Theater
Who wouldn’t want a home theater in their home? Dad can spend his free time watching his favorite movies and sports on a huge screen, with amazing surround sound. The best part is that a home theater also doubles as a family space – movie nights with the kids, date night for the two of you, or a gathering with friends and family. We don’t know many Dads who wouldn’t be thrilled with a home theater.
Home theaters can be carefully designed to meet your needs – they can be as simple or as grand as you’d like. A large projection or TV screen will make the viewing experience so lifelike, that you’ll feel as though you are a part of the action. Speakers can be hidden in the walls and drapes and shades used to block out natural light. You’ll never want to go to the movie theater again!
2. Whole Home Audio
Whole home audio is just as much of a gift for you, as it is for him! The ability to play music all over your home, with the touch of a single button, is incredible. You can be listening to your favorite song in the living room, while your husband listens to his favorite song in the kitchen, and your daughter listens to her favorite in her bedroom – all through the same system! The best part is that when it’s time to call everyone in for dinner, you can turn off the entire system with just one button. And if you’re having a party, you can play music softly in the background throughout every room of your home.
Speakers today are made to be unobtrusive and fit with the design of your home. Of course, if you’d rather your speakers not be seen at all, that’s possible too! Speakers can be mounted in your wall and covered with drywall, so they are completely hidden. A win-win for both you and your husband.
3. Outdoor Entertainment
When the weather starts warming up, there’s no place your husband would rather be than outside. Whether he’s working in the yard, enjoying a beer on the patio, playing with the kids in the pool, or hosting friends on a Saturday night, he basically lives outside in the Summer. Since Summer is almost here, it makes perfect sense to gift him outdoor entertainment this year.
There’s a lot of options for outdoor entertainment:
- Add speakers outdoors, so he can play his favorite music while he’s working or relaxing.
- Underwater speakers make the pool even more fun
- Kick back, relax and watch TV outside with high-performing flat screen televisions
- Ensure that you can access the internet easily
Outdoor speakers can be hidden in the landscaping or disguised as rocks, so they won’t be noticeable at all. Outdoor television can stand up to weather and temperature changes, so you don’t have to worry about them getting ruined. Watching your favorite show or sport while sipping on your favorite drink outside – what’s better than that?
4. Whole House Video
What Dad doesn’t want TVs all throughout his home? It gets even better than that – with whole house video, all equipment is kept in one place. You won’t have numerous cable boxes, Apple TVs, and Rokus’ all over your home. Instead, installers can find a place in your home that is out of the way (typically the basement or a closet) and ensure that you can access everything you need on each television. If he records a lot of shows, they’ll be available on every TV in the house. It’s the perfect way for Dad to relax. And, no more fighting over the television!
If you want to surprise the Dad in your life with a gift he’ll truly love, home automation should be at the top of your list. We can promise you that he’ll be thrilled!
