With summer fast approaching, you’re probably preparing your outdoor spaces for much more frequent use, both for yourself and for any gatherings you plan to have with friends or family. You might consider adding an outdoor home entertainment system to your existing outdoor spaces!
There are a lot of different options and features you can include in such a system, including surround sound installation in Chicago. You might, for example, wish to add some music around your patio or pool, or install a movie projector or television screen. Here are a few ideas for how you can implement some new technological amenities in your outdoor spaces.
Outdoor movie nights
Movie nights are always fun for the whole family, but you can make them even more exciting by holding them outdoors. The technological advances that have been made in developing televisions allow you to get crystal-clear 4K Ultra HD TV even with outdoor TVs—you don’t have to compromise on the quality of the picture just because you’re going to be placing the screen outside.
Keep in mind that you can’t just take a regular TV and set it up outside. There are some special requirements for outdoor TVs. They must be weatherproof to be able to withstand the outdoor elements. It should be able to stand up to rain, wind, sun and extreme temperatures. Outdoor TVs should also be designed to resist glare—the position of the sun shouldn’t matter. Seek an outdoor TV that is designed for use even in full sunlight.
Outdoor TVs are perfect for around outdoor kitchens or bars, or for near the pool. Turn on the big game or a movie and add it to the background of your favorite outdoor activities, or gather the family around with popcorn and snacks and have a movie night under the stars.
Outdoor sound systems
There are a lot of ways you can use an outdoor sound system. You can add some background music while you’re relaxing outside, or you can make the music a focal point for any parties or gatherings.
As with televisions, you’ll need to make sure you’ve selected speakers that are actually designed to be placed outside. With the proper setup, you can still develop surround sound systems in your backyard. You can place speakers strategically all around your deck or yard, blending them in with your existing architecture or landscape while still giving you the very best audio experience possible. You can also get a system that easily connects to Bluetooth-enabled devices so you can either play your media library or stream from Spotify or Pandora.
If you want to sit outside and enjoy the sun, your speakers can also be used to play an audiobook while you relax.
