Picture this: it’s a beautiful summer evening in Pittsburgh, PA, and you and the family are relaxing outside. A movie is playing on the big outdoor TV, and you’re captivated by the stunning, vivid pictures and catchy music. The burgers and corn on the cob are almost done grilling — you get up to turn over the corn and fix a plate for everyone without missing a second of the film. You’re enjoying this quality time with your loved ones, good food, and fantastic entertainment.
At Simply Automated, we can help make this vision a reality in your home. Adding a high-quality outdoor AV installation to your outdoor spaces can add limitless entertainment to your summer days and nights. Keep reading to learn threeareas that would benefit from audio and video!
You shouldn’t have to miss out on entertainment just because you’re the designated grill master. An outdoor TV from the SunBrite Veranda collection or Sealocand mounted patio speakers from the Paradigm Garden Oasis seriesare the perfect additions to shaded areas like an outdoor kitchen. You can listen to your favorite playlist, watch your current TV show or catch every second of the big game while tending to the food preparation.
If you’re excited to try out a new recipe (grilled balsamic peaches, anyone?), you can pull up YouTube on the big screen and follow along with the how-to video. What an improvement over squinting down at your phone every 30 seconds to see a recipe!
We know what you’re thinking — is it safe to put a TV and speakers so close to water? If it’s an outdoor television from SunBrite, it’s perfectly safe. The SunBrite Pro Series is ideal for sun-exposed areas likethe poolside. The Pro screen is three times brighter than an indoor TV screen and has an anti-glare screen for use in direct sunlight. Another good option is a Sealoc outdoor TV. Sealoc’s weatherproof models work well in all lighting situations, and the ultra-thin design looks amazing from multiple viewing angles.
Paradigm Garden Oasis speakers are designed to be installed in flowerbeds, landscaping, and around the yard, blanketing your pool area with enveloping sound. Their flexible, scalable systems can be set up with as many or as few speakers as you need for clear, even coverage.
Now you can while away a hot summer afternoon sipping mixed drinks and browsing Netflix or listening to Spotify from your water lounger. When you’re ready to dry off in the late-afternoon sunshine, migrate to a poolside lounge chair without pausing your show, movie, or playlist.
There’s no better place to host a movie night than on the patio. SunBrite Veranda (full shade) or Signature (partial shade) models are great TV choices for enclosed spaces. SunBrite screens boast 4K UHD and HDR technology that delivers bright, vivid picture quality for watching movies and TV shows.Another great option is Sealoc’s line of smart TVs with 4K UHD resolution.
Pair your television with an outdoor speaker installation that you can use with the TV or for streaming music while you’re relaxing on the patio.
