The Maxwell House Project: Outdoor Retractable Screens and Audio


The Power of Hidden Technology and One-Touch Control in Outdoor Design

ResTech Systems recently completed another custom home project for one of our clients in Minnetonka, MN. In this post, we’d like to share the solutions that transformed their outdoor area into a relaxing oasis on Maxwell Bay. These include outdoor retractable screens and audio-video solutions. Let’s take a look at the details.

Discreet Yet Powerful Outdoor Audio 

As with most successful projects, it took a team of builders, craftspeople, designers, and project managers, collaborating from the start to build a home that defines effortless living. Integrating the latest technology needs to begin in the beginning—the prewiring phase that creates the backbone of smart home automation. Then, we work through obstacles as they arise and conceal the technology as it’s integrated. The result is a beautiful home and environment that retains its design and aesthetics as the interior designer intended. 

The outdoor audio was one of those systems that we camouflaged into the surrounding landscape. We managed this using Paradigm's high-fidelity Garden Oasis speakers and in-ground subwoofers. By strategically placing the audio equipment throughout the outdoor space, we helped our clients experience music and audio that envelopes them. The resulting even coverage translates to no hot spots or dead zones.

Using additional speakers throughout the area also created a beautifully distributed sound that the owners, their friends, and family can enjoy at lower listening levels. In addition, the speakers blend in seamlessly with the landscape, maintaining the beauty of their backyard oasis.

Keeping the Bugs Out

The summers on Maxwell Bay are breathtakingly beautiful. To ensure the homeowners can enjoy their view and outdoor spaces long into the night, we built in outdoor retractable screens. 

Progressive screens accent the beauty of their home while allowing them to enjoy the outdoors without fear of mosquitoes and other insects. The screens also offer heat gain control, filtering the sun's rays and absorbing some of the heat while reducing glare and increasing privacy.

Easy to Manage

One of the most important considerations for our clients was ease of use—having a smart home that offered one-touch control no matter the level of technology involved. Savant home automation made this possible. 

This premier smart home system is designed for every property type and can easily manage a large estate. One user-friendly interface controls the retractable shades and outdoor audio-video as well as all the other systems in the home.

They can fill their home and outdoor space with the same audio, whether a playlist from streaming services, music from their vinyl collection, a broadcast, audiobook, and more. The separate zones also enable them to simultaneously play different sources at varying volume levels.

At ResTech Systems, we pride ourselves not just on our expert-level integration and technology skills but on our ability to listen. We are passionate about creating homes that offer unprecedented ease of use and enjoyment. To accomplish this, we listen to your needs and dreams and then create a space that exceeds your expectations.
