Ring Floodlight Motion-Activated Camera

Ring Floodlight Motion-Activated CameraWe’ve all been there. Standing in the kitchen, cleaning up the dishes from dinner before heading off to bed when it happens. Your motion detection floodlight turns on outside. You know something is outside your home moving around but you have no idea what, or who. What’s your next step? Go outside with a bat? Hide under your bed? Call the police?

Luckily you no longer need to wonder what is outside your home, thanks to the new Ring Floodlight Motion Camera. As soon as the motion detection on the Ring Camera is tripped, an alert is sent to your phone. From your phone, you can watch a 1080p video of exactly what is happening outside. Whether it is a raccoon going through your garbage, a friendly neighbor or someone up to no good, you will be able to see them with great clarity.

If the worst-case scenario occurs and you open the live stream video to see a trespasser on your property, you have options. You can blare a 110-decibel siren, flash the floodlights at them or speak to them directly over the 2-way intercom. The glory of it all is not only do you no longer need to worry about grabbing your bat to scare unwanted visitors away, but you don’t even need to be home.

You can scare away intruders, alert your neighbors and record the whole scene from anywhere in the world with one simple and smart floodlight.

If the security features alone of the Ring Floodlight Motion Camera do not have you impressed, there is more to this floodlight than meets the eye.

  • 3k Lumen LED Floodlights

Triad Garden Array Speakers

Triad Garden Array SpeakersIf you’re keeping up with home technology news, it’s safe to say that you’ve heard talk about smart homes and that you’ve also heard talk about outdoor home entertainment. Both are thriving industries that continue to grow, and develop technology and new integrations at rapid-fire pace. Perhaps the most pivotal integration between the two industries is the recent announcement that Control4 will now offer the new Triad Garden Array Outdoor Speakers as part of their custom, easy-to-use, smart home technology.

Triad Garden Array Speakers by Control4

The Garden Array speakers include a 4.5-inch ultra-broad dispersion (UBD), an exclusive design to Triad and incredibly rare in landscape speakers. Dispersion refers to the quality of sound throughout the given space, narrow dispersion being bad and broad dispersion being preferred. The broader a speaker’s dispersion, the better the sound quality for each person regardless of where they may be seated in relation to the speaker. Said another way, narrow dispersion often results in “dead spots” or areas where the sound is either poor or inaudible.

Enough with all the technical lingo. What does an exclusive UBD speaker system mean for your backyard entertainment? It means clear and precise sound quality that is consistent while you move throughout the space 

  • The Garden Array system is scalable to meet the needs of your unique space, no matter if you have a small patio space that requires a single speaker or an area that can accommodate large numbers of guests. Your speaker system will be customized to fit your space by ensuring the speakers you receive are the speakers you need, no more, no less.
  • Your speaker system will be staked into your lawn, mounted on trees or installed on your deck as needed. Flexibility is key when delivering high quality sound to a variety of spaces.
  • Triad builds the systems with simple installations in mind, using standard or “off the shelf” landscape products. The Garden Array system is compatible with 80hm, 70-volt and 100-volt systems.

If you are unfamiliar with Triad, get to know them. You will quickly discover their passion for perfection when it comes to audio solutions. Triad speakers are all designed and manufactured by Triad to ensure excellence in all aspects of their speaker systems. Take their high-quality audio solutions and combine them with the simple yet versatile Control4 smart hub, and you have an outdoor entertaining space that is easy to enjoy.
