As more people begin hosting parties and get-togethers again, now is the perfect time to spruce up your backyard spaces with outdoor entertainment.
But when it comes to outdoor audio and video, there’s always one factor to consider: the neighbors. No one likes being forced to listen to next door’s music and booming bass notes. Noise pollution is a very real thing, and even if your Altadena, CA backyard is spacious and private, sound can carry far distances.
But the weather is beautiful here in sunny Southern California, and it’s only natural to want to enjoy your favorite playlists and movies by the plants and poolside. At Personal Technology, we install residential outdoor sound systems and weatherproof TVs that not only look and sound high-quality but won’t cause the neighbors to file a noise complaint either. Read on to find out how.

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 and surveillance 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.
But what does a home technology inspection include? Find out below to make sure you make the most of your new residence.

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. You might not want to leave the air conditioning on while you’re out of the house, but during a heatwave, no one wants to come home to a stifling house.
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.
Utilizing Rooftop Solar, Sonnen, and Savant Energy, Personal Technology’s offices are no longer reliant on the grid.
