The holiday season is on the horizon, and that means it’s time to start planning parties and gatherings. Whether it’s hosting an intimate cocktail party, a lavish business dinner, movie night or the annual family holiday gift exchange, entertaining is at its best in an Aurum Integrated Home™.
Holiday entertaining at home requires effort and planning for menu and décor, but when the power of smart technology takes center stage it’s easy to focus on the details that make the party special without feeling overwhelmed about the big picture. An Aurum Integrated Home lets technology control lighting, sound, climate and security at the touch of a button, so you can connect with your guests and enjoy the party.
Cozy Up in the Kitchen
The heart of the home is the heart of the party. This is the space where it all comes together, whether it’s behind the scenes or as the central gathering place. While the environment in any room can be affected by sound, lighting and space, how these three features interact with each other has a greater impact in the kitchen than almost any other space in the home. Smart, simple upgrades such as hidden outlets and the right sound and lighting can make a big difference in making your kitchen feel welcoming.
Turn Down the Lights
The right lighting serves double duty, from setting the right mood at the start to adding the finishing touch to any entertainment space. Lighting sets the mood more than any other feature in a room, and is a great way to showcase your gorgeous architecture, art and holiday décor.
Turn Up the Sound
Along with décor, sound has the biggest impact when it comes to wowing guests. Whether you’re playing background music during a dinner party or cozying up in your home theater for movie night, the last thing you want is bad audio quality. Instead, serve up your favorite tunes with a high-quality sound system that brings out the richness and nuances of the music.
Comfortable and Secure
From letting you know when your guests arrive to cueing the background music and turning on the outdoor lights, whole home automation can be as beneficial to your holiday entertaining as having an extra pair of hands. Integrated technology makes it easy to keep the party going with music and lighting that sets the mood, entertainment systems that dazzle, and technology that enhances your lifestyle on party day and every day.
