Recent advances in technology have provided us with amazing possibilities for bringing entertainment to your outdoor areas.
The most basic way to provide outdoor entertainment is with one or more pairs of weather-resistant outdoor speakers. When you have several sets of speakers operating at a low volume instead of one pair of speakers playing extremely loud, it provides better coverage and a better outdoor experience overall.
One of our most popular outdoor speaker solutions is the new Sonance and B&W outdoor speakers. These speakers resemble small outdoor landscape lights or decorative stones.
Once you have great sound outdoors, how do you control it? That’s where home automation systems from Crestron and Sonance comes in. Each of these has wireless control options for complete management of your outdoor entertainment choices. Imagine sitting outside with your friends, listening to music from high school or college days. One of them asks if you can play something more recent, so you hand him your two-way remote control and let him choose the next music selection!
The new Seura series of LCD TVs represent the ultimate in outdoor television. These TVs are completely weather proof. Yes, rain can pour down on the TV and will have no effect. Seura TVs are about twice as bright as regular LCD sets, so you get a pretty good picture even in sunlight. While outdoor video continues to gain in popularity and prices of LCD TVs dropping under $1500 for a good-sized picture, many people are putting these on covered porches. (The plan is to replace the LCD in a few years if the weather gets to it.)
