Build a Media Room Outside with Outdoor Entertainment Systems
You don’t have to stay cooped up inside to enjoy your favorite movies and music
After an unusually cold winter plagued by fierce winter storms, everyone is happy that summer has arrived in Ft. Worth, TX. By now, you’re probably ready to thaw out poolside and move your get-togethers with family and friends outdoors. And with an outdoor entertainment system featuring weatherproof TVs and landscape audio, you can still enjoy all your favorite activities — like watching movies, listening to music, and video gaming — while basking in the sun.
Keep reading to learn what you need to transform your patio, pool deck, or open-area living space into a fully decked-out outdoor media room.
An Outdoor TV
Start building your outdoor entertainment center with a durable, weatherproof TV for your patio, pool deck, or open-area living space — or all three. Leading outdoor television brands offer models designed for viewing in shade or direct sunlight. We highly recommend going with a TV designed explicitly for outdoor viewing. Indoor TVs aren’t built to withstand the elements, and they’ll start breaking down a lot sooner than you’d like. Additionally, outdoor TVs boast superior brightness to overcome natural light and display crisp, detailed picture quality in any lighting condition. Many modern outdoor televisions by leading brands are equipped with 4K UHD and HDR technology for stunning detail, color, and contrast.
Like an indoor media room, your outdoor media setup can be the centerpiece for multiple types of entertainment. Stream your favorite yoga videos and practice sun salutations outdoors as the sun rises. Gather the family together for a few rousing games of Mario Kart or Madden NFL 21. Set up a table with popcorn, candy and drinks and enjoy a movie night under the stars. Take the opportunity to soak up the Texas sun without missing out on the activities you enjoy most.
Pool and Landscape Audio
Bring audio to your outdoor media center with a weatherproof sound system. You can use outdoor speakers to play music throughout your backyard and boost the audio performance of your outdoor TVs. Brands like Sonance and Coastal Source offer high-performance landscape speakers that can be evenly installed throughout your patio, pool deck, and backyard to deliver sonic performance that envelops your entire space. Outdoor music is the perfect complement to dinner parties on the patio, pool parties, and casual backyard get-togethers. You’ll also enjoy having musical accompaniment on the days you want solo time for swimming, reading on the patio, and sunbathing.
Along with landscape speakers, we also recommend pool speakers installed inside the pool for you to listen to music underwater. Pool speakers are a ton of fun when your kids have friends over for swimming playdates.
Home automation ties your outdoor entertainment setup together. With a centralized control platform like Savant, you can access and manage all your outdoor technologies from a single device — like your smartphone app or a touchscreen tablet. Multiroom audio and video allow you to send music or TV shows playing inside to your outdoor systems with the tap of a button. If you’re throwing a party, play one type of music indoors and another outdoors, and switch the playlists whenever you want from your mobile phone. At your football Sunday watch party, display the big game on TVs inside and out, so your guests can watch from a comfy couch or the pool.
You can also control other outdoor tech with Savant automation, like landscape lighting and pool/spa automation.
