Light (or a lack of it) has a profound effect on the human psyche—it’s one of the reasons Seasonal Affective Disorder exists, after all. We may receive more sun than other states do here in Las Vegas, NV, but many of us spend substantial amounts of time indoors. Our brains’ chemistry depends on sunlight patterns to regulate when serotonin and melatonin are released. In the morning, the bright blue-white sunlight energizes us.

But if you’re indoors with the same lightbulbs on all day, you’re missing the benefits of natural light. Living with improper lighting may cause headaches, fatigue, and irritability. But it’s not always practical to spend the entire day outdoors, so what can be done? That’s where tunable lighting solutions by manufacturers like Savant and Lutron are changing the game.

We’ve all experienced shopping at a supermarket or clothing store, listening to a familiar ‘80s pop tune overhead while browsing the aisles.

Similarly, your entire house can be fitted to play the same audio over high-quality speakers in each room. You can pause, skip, and switch from streaming to vinyl, and all speakers will synch accordingly. In this blog, we’ll explain how a distributed audio system works, and how it will enhance the way you enjoy music in your Las Vegas, NV home.

However, what happens if a carbon monoxide, smoke, or security alarm goes off while you’re not home? Perhaps you’re at work, or you’re jetting off to Europe. Wherever you may be, without a smart security system in place, you won’t know of the danger in your house until it’s too late.
