When Ron W. and his wife retired to Florida, they couldn’t wait to take advantage of the state’s most important natural resource—sun! They chose a regal home in an established neighborhood, with balconies and white columns, and unencumbered views of the water. But soon enough, they found their West-facing, sun-drenched backyard offered a little too much of a good thing. That’s when Ron heard about the Pergola X, a high-tech shade structure that could be operated from an app on his phone. As a technology aficionado, Ron saw the value in being able to control the unique, fully-closeable louvers from his handheld device. Then there were the wind and rain sensors that, respectively, automatically open and close the louvers when inclement weather is detected. He also appreciated the custom design options, like column wraps to match the architecture of his home, and add-ons like lights and fans to make the outdoor space even more comfortable. They are now enjoying the sun on their own terms.
