When Lake Michigan is literally in your backyard, the need for quality outdoor entertainment cannot be over-stated.
When this client approached us about designing the smart home system for his new home in Bridgman, MI we quickly understood that outdoor televisions, outdoor speakers, and Wifi powerful enough to cover the entire backyard was of utmost importance. So we went to work.
Bridgman, Michigan smart home & outdoor audio installation
clearly defined goals
JBM Automation installs a lot of outdoor entertainment, but with this particular installation, we simply thought of the outdoors as additional living area. There are plenty of outdoor entertainment products on the market that will get the job done. From outdoor televisions, to landscape speakers designed to blend seamlessly into the background, but powerful enough to fill the entire outdoor living area with sound. Not to mention the need to bring a robust WiFi network outside, all the way to the lake shore.
