What You Need to Know About Outdoor Speakers and Video Elements

Transform your backyard into a space where you’ll want to spend even more time. If you’re like 36% of Americans, you want to use your backyard for entertaining and 51% want to cook outside. Whether for staycations at home, backyard barbecues, or throwing parties at home, you’ll want a comfortable, fun outdoor space. To achieve this goal, you’ll need great sound and video outside. However, before you buy outdoor speakers and screens, you need to know more about these devices and how to get the best brands for your home.

Outdoor Screens Need Protection from the Elements

When you choose a flat screen TV for your patio or pool area, you will need to choose a location that protects it from the elements. These screens can be the same caliber that you use inside and connect to your outdoor speakers.

If you have a covered patio or outdoor living room with a ceiling, you can have a screen installed in the most protected spot, usually a wall against the house. With the screen as far from the rain, sun, sprinklers, and pool as possible, you can protect the TV from water damage. Plus, by having the TV under a covered area, you’ll reduce the sun’s glare on the screen.

Variations in Outdoor Speakers

Outdoor speakers have several variations that you’ll need to choose from when selecting options for your backyard. You may opt for surface-mounted speakers that more closely resemble the speakers you may have inside your home. Make sure that you specify outdoor or indoor/outdoor models. These types of speakers will have more waterproofing in their components and structure to withstand damage from the elements.

Other types of speakers available are those installed in the landscape. These speakers have portions partially installed underground for protection and for aesthetics to hide the bulk of the device. Many people prefer these options because they offer exceptional sound quality from anywhere in your yard.

Endless Possibilities for Outdoor Speakers and Screens

When you have your yard set up with outdoor speakers and screens, you’ll be ready for any type of event. You can host parties or simply relax outside. With outdoor audio and video, you transform your yard into a living area that provides you with fresh air. Imagine watching your favorite sporting events from your patio dining area or watching a movie from your pool. You can with outdoor speakers and screens.

How to Throw the Ultimate Outdoor Entertaining Event

Get started for outdoor party season. The summer provides great weather and vacation time to make outdoor barbecues, pool parties, and patio gatherings possible. Before you start planning your outdoor entertaining, you need to make sure your backyard is ready for the events with great sound, lighting, and video to make any event even more fun for everyone.

Set Up a Great Audio System

Any list of the things you need for outdoor entertaining will inevitably include a wireless speaker. But, you can do a lot better than just a single Bluetooth speaker. Instead, have a lasting option in your landscape to be ready for producing great sound from your flat-screen TV on the patio or your music player on your phone. Landscape speakers are installed around your home’s yard, partially buried for a permanent outdoor sound solution ready for entertaining.

Outdoor Lighting

You should have lighting outside for security at a minimum. But with lighting controls and more lights around your backyard, you can create ideal conditions for your outdoor entertainment events. Imagine turning on underwater pool lights and opening the cover at the touch of a button for an after-dark pool party. Or, you can turn down lights on your patio to allow for better TV watching. Good outdoor lighting systems must come with easy-to-use lighting controls to make them useful for your social events.

Flat-Screen TVs for Outdoor Watching

Make one of your outdoor events a sports-watching party outside. You can barbecue food for the event outside and not miss the action on the flat-screen TV you have installed on your patio. A patio TV lets you make your patio a living room outside where you’ll have more space for your events or just for relaxing. Outdoor TVs are great for when you want a casual, outdoor movie-watching experience without leaving your home to find a drive-through or other outdoor area.

Install these outdoor must-haves for entertaining or just relaxing outside. You’ll enjoy many perks from choosing installed speakers in your landscape.

Hidden Speakers Don’t Ruin Your Yard’s Aesthetics

When you have landscape speakers installed, you have the option to choose models that seamlessly blend into the landscape. You won’t have to worry about speakers ruining the appearance of your carefully laid-out yard while you still get stellar audio.

Better Audio Outside

When you have outdoor speakers, you’ll get much better sound quality than you can from a portable speaker or from the speaker on your phone. With better audio, more people can enjoy the music thanks to improved volume. Additionally, the sound quality will be much better from professional-grade speakers installed in your landscape.

Make your parties more fun by providing guests with music that sounds clear and loud, instead of muffled and scratchy. Good speakers make the difference in your ability to have great sound anywhere in your backyard.

Effortless Connectivity to Your Devices

Do you want to watch TV on your patio or listen to music poolside? Your outdoor speakers can easily connect to your devices for playing audio outside. Controls for your speakers let you take charge of the volume from anywhere inside or out, depending on whether you choose app-based controls, or a system installed in your home.

With your outdoor lights integrated into Crestron Home controls, you have the ability to quickly and easily adjust lighting for the perfect party atmosphere outside.

Outdoor Entertaining and Lighting

The lighting that you have outside is more than for only keeping your property secure. Lights in your outdoor cooking areas give you the ability to see properly for meal preparation. Dimmer lighting in dining areas reduce glare and make the meals more enticing. With lighting around your yard, you expand the available space that you have for entertaining from around your patio to your entire landscape.

Setting Outdoor Lighting Moods

With Crestron Home controls on your phone app, you can set up moods for your outdoor lighting. For instance, you may have settings for relaxing, watching movies, or entertaining. Relaxing may require dimmer lights in warmer colors. Movie watching uses lights in corners to offset the screen. Lighting for entertaining may include areas with brighter lights, such as food preparation areas outside, and areas with dimmer lights for gathering or dancing.

Enjoying Your Event

Why spend time going around your landscape to turn lights on and off from switches? A simple-to-use app puts control of all your home’s lights, inside and out, in the palm of your hand. If your party extends from outside to inside your home, you can adapt by turning on your home’s interior lights from anywhere.

Drive-In Theaters in Your Backyard with an Outdoor Entertainment Center

During their height of popularity, there were 4000 drive-in theaters in the United States. While drive-in theaters have disappeared from much of the country, in some parts, they are making comebacks with 325 of these theaters scattered around the nation. Part of the appeal of these theaters is watching a movie under the stars in the privacy of your vehicle. You can get a similar experience in your backyard with an entertainment center.

Surround Sound Built Into the Landscape for Outdoor Entertainment

If you have a home theater, it includes surround sound to provide the most immersive viewing experience. You can get the same quality audio with an outdoor entertainment system. By carefully concealing speakers into the landscape, you get quality sound without spoiling the natural look of your backyard.

Flat Screen Television for Watching on the Patio 

A flat screen television provides the viewing experience for your outdoor entertainment system. However, you could also choose a projector for an even larger view. You can watch your favorite movies or TV shows with your friends and family from the pool, around the barbecue pit, or while lounging on your patio.

Lighting Controls for Better Viewing for Outdoor Entertainment

Choosing a Staycation? Turn Your Backyard into a Resort-Like Setting with Outdoor Entertainment Options

The pandemic severely curtained traveling outside of the country. In fact, as of 2020, 63% of American adults had taken a staycation. Even in 2022, traveling abroad is still difficult. However, you can make your home a resort for a staycation by upgrading your outdoor entertainment system.

What Is a Staycation?

If you’ve never heard of a staycation, don’t worry. Only 51% of American adults know the term. It refers to a vacation in which you remain in your hometown instead of traveling elsewhere. Many people opt for a staycation to save money. However, occasionally, travel restrictions, such as during the pandemic, forced many people’s travel plans to convert into staycations.

How to Transform Your Backyard with an Outdoor Entertainment System

One of the things that sets a resort apart from a standard backyard is its use of audio and video equipment outside to create an entertainment spot for concerts, parties, and more. A home outdoor entertainment system has all the elements of an indoor one. However, you need professional installers to install the equipment to protect it from the elements and hide it within the landscape.

Aspects of an outdoor entertainment system include audio speakers hidden around the area, a television under a pavilion or patio, and a lighting system to control the degree of lighting in the area. For instance, you likely already have lighting to provide security, safety, and aesthetic appeal around your backyard. However, an outdoor entertainment system could integrate your lighting so you can dim the lights to better see your outdoor television. You could also adjust the lighting level if you want to create a party atmosphere.

Unlike a Staycation, You’ll Enjoy Your Upgraded Yard All-Year Long

With a staycation, you can only enjoy the experience while your holiday lasts. However, if you turn your yard into a resort-worthy entertainment area, you can enjoy it while you live in your home. Why not make an investment in your home’s entertainment value by adding an outdoor entertainment center.

Benefits of an Outdoor Entertainment Space

The pandemic shifted many ways of life, including how people prioritize their lives. Finding a healthier work-life balance has become essential for many. Therefore, you may find yourself working fewer hours for your mental health or due to your job’s changing benefits. Make the most of your time off work by creating a livable outdoor entertainment space.

Alternative to a Home Addition

Outdoor entertainment spaces give you extra room to relax and a new living area in your home. You don’t need to spend the money for constructing an addition. However, when you choose to turn your backyard into an outdoor living area, you still have a new space for dining, entertaining, cooking, or relaxing.

Outdoor living spaces are useful all year long in the mild southern California climate. When you add an outdoor kitchen and dining space you can have a casual entertaining area or spot for family meals in the fresh air.

Upgrade Home’s Value

Replacing your plain patio or backyard with an entertainment area upgrades your home’s total value. Speakers integrated into the landscape and around your patio create a one-of-a-kind, built-in sound system that will become an asset when you need to sell your home. Therefore, you can get a higher selling price when you want to move out. And, you can enjoy a comfortable space outside for watching movies or listening to music in the meantime.

Provide Space for Friends and Family

Despite the monetary reasons for upgrading your backyard, many people choose to take on the work of adding an outdoor entertainment area for the perks that it gave to their personal lives. The top reason that many people choose to upgrade their outdoor spaces, reported by 80% of survey respondents, was creating a place for time with friends and family.
