10 Home-Tech Products for a More Joyous Holiday Season
Bringing joy with Sonos, Lutron, Kaleidescape and more: Some of the latest home-technology products to ring in a happier new year. Don't forget the power protection.

With the holidays and the onslaught of holiday festivities here it means mass hysteria disguised as shopping, eating, and entertaining family and friends.
There’s really nothing that can be done to improve the shopping, eating and busyness of the holiday season, but there is help available to make entertaining fun and easy.
Alongside novelties like Billy the Bass, clients should appreciate home-tech goodies that bring joyous music, video and ambiance all year long.
Gear for Ho Ho Ho Holidays ... and All Year Long
Enjoy sounds of the holiday from residential staples like SnapAV's Episode Signature 1700 in-ceiling loudspeaker, as well as newer solutions like the Blueound Pulse 2i soundbar and new Sonos Amp all offer a means to deliver entertainment in a range of applications.
To add a visual element to these festivities check out products from Roku and Kaleidescape. Complement the entertainment experience with the right ambiance, installing affordable lighting controls like Lutron Caseta.
If home theater is someone’s idea of home entertainment and holiday entertainment, nothing beats an immersive audio system that features Pro Audio Technology in-wall loudspeakers.
Don't be a scrooge this season. Insulate these plug-in products from power strikes and surges, using power-protection products from the likes of SurgeX.
