The summer months bring with them a chance to spend time with family and friends and replenish the body and soul. For many, that means going on long vacations to all-inclusive resorts in exotic locales. But what if you could create the ultimate staycation environment in the comfort of your home?

We’ve written in the past about how to leverage climate control and security during the summer months, but there’s so much more you can do to prepare your Lafayette, LA, home. In this blog, we focus mainly on outdoor spaces because what is summer without a little bit of sunshine? Explore our top tips below, from outdoor home audio video solutions to motorized shades.

The Perfect Poolside Playlist 

Pull out the blender to make yourself some frozen margaritas or piña coladas and prepare to sunbathe while the kids splash around in the pool. Our outdoor audio solutions let you listen to high-quality audio through discreet rock or landscape speakers to set the perfect mood. 

Have you got some time alone with your drink in hand? Pull up the audiobook of this year’s top-rated beach read. When the kids make it outside, quickly switch to a Top-40 playlist that will keep them entertained during their afternoon swim. 

Movie Night Under the Stars 

Sometimes the humidity and heat in Lafayette make it so the best time to enjoy your outdoor spaces is after the sun sets. Don’t let those evenings go to waste! Instead, take this opportunity to have a fantastic movie night under the stars with family or as a fun date night.

As part of your home audio video installation, we’ll add outdoor TVs with adaptive LED technology that adjusts brightness depending on whether you’re watching under the sun’s glare or at night. We make it easy to pull up movies from streaming services or Kaleidescape servers to watch the summer blockbusters without spending hours in a freezing theater. 

An Escape from the Elements 

The muggy weather doesn’t mean you should only enjoy your patio at night. Installing outdoor motorized shades is one way to turn your patio into an all-season room. These shades remain open when the weather is nice so you can take in the sun and breeze. If you find the heat, humidity, or bugs becoming a bit oppressive, you can lower the shades in seconds.

The shades will seal shut to keep out the bugs and hot weather, letting you enjoy the space at any time of day or year. For added comfort, you could even set them to a schedule. During prime summer months, schedule them to stay closed between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. when the heat and humidity are at their worst.
