Essential #1: A Speaker System Made for the Outdoors

The first step to bringing your backyard to life is putting Bluetooth speakers to the side and installing a speaker system that was made for the outdoors. Professional, hi-fi speakers go beyond delivering the power of music to your backyard. They provide balanced, high-quality sound through speakers that were designed to withstand the elements of Mother Nature, including rain, heat, humidity, dust, and even cold temperatures.

Working with a professional for your installation gives you the advantage of years of knowledge and experience. A professional installer will know where to strategically install your speakers so that you can hear the audio throughout every area of your backyard without having to have the volume all the way up and upset your neighbors. You can even integrate your outdoor AV system with your existing home automation system to make controlling your audio and video even easier.

Essential #2: An Outdoor Television

If you were planning on bringing the extra TV you have in your unused guest room outside, let us save you the trouble and tell you why that’s a bad idea. Indoor televisions weren’t made to withstand being exposed to high temperatures and direct sunlight. In fact, many warranties become void as soon as you take your TV outside, and your television can overheat within as little as 15 minutes.

Outdoor TVs are built to work through rain, heat, humidity, cold, and even snow! They’re even made with super-bright displays that can be up to 60 percent brighter than indoor televisions so that you can see your favorite TV shows and movies even when the sun is shining its brightest.

Summer won’t last forever. Are you ready to install an outdoor AV system in your backyard? We can help. Start the process today by giving us a call or filling out our online contact form to schedule a no-obligation consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
