Home inspections typically focus on the foundation, structure, plumbing, and electrical elements of a building. But if you’re moving into a new property with high-tech appliances, security devices, or a smart home system already installed, you need to know that the technology is up to date, safely running, and has a long lifespan ahead.
Modern homes with smart technology require more advanced inspections than traditional residences. At Personal Technology, our home automation company offers technology surveys for both homebuyers and real estate agents in San Marino, CA and Los Angeles county.

As the San Gabriel Valley starts to heat up, Californians have to start thinking about how they’ll keep cool this summer. But cranking the AC in every room is very costly and can do a number on our wallets and the power grid.

Luckily, a motorized shades installation offers a convenient and efficient way to keep your home cool. During blackouts when we’re asked to conserve power, smart shades by manufacturers like Lutron offer another way to keep heat out of your Pasadena, CA house. How? We’ll explain how it works below.

The days are getting longer, warmer, and the flowers are returning. As we head into spring and summertime, many Pasadena homeowners make this the time to tend to their plants, landscaping, and dust off the outdoor furniture. If you’re gardening or sprucing up the backyard, why not consider lighting and audio in your outdoor spaces too?
Landscape lighting can be much, much more than porch lights or a motion-activated lamp by the driveway. And an outdoor sound system can bring live-music-quality audio to your patio, pool, and even front steps.
But it can be a hassle to wire and install outdoor technology on your own. That’s why a professional installation will not only save you time but enhance your curb appeal, too. Read on to see what a pro can do for both your outdoor lighting and audio in Pasadena, CA.
