Outdoor Entertainment Systems Checklist: Do You Have Everything?
Is your Park City home ready for outdoor festivities this summer?
With warmer days right around the corner in Park City, UT, the dazzlingly blue pool and sunlit patio are starting to look more and more inviting. Increase the enjoyment of spending time outside by adding outdoor entertainment systems to your living spaces.
Outdoor entertainment in the form of movies, TV, and music is a welcome addition to game day parties and cook-outs with family and friends and the perfect companion for suntanning and swimming by yourself. Before you start planning your next get-together, read through our checklist to make sure you have everything you need to entertain outside!
Think twice before bringing an indoor TV to your outdoor spaces — indoor televisions aren’t built to support the ambient lighting and weather conditions of the great outdoors. Buying an outdoor TV is a significant financial investment upfront, but it will provide entertainment for years to come.
The Samsung Terrace QLED 4K Smart TV has crisp 4K resolution, high-dynamic range (HDR) formatting for rich contrast and vivid color, and ultra-high brightness levels. An IP55 rating ensures that your hardware will remain protected from water and dust year-round. The Terrace offers partial-sun and direct-sun models, meaning you can choose to mount a TV on your patio or set up your display poolside or in an outdoor courtyard. Or you can choose to have more than one display to create multiple entertainment zones.
A sound system is a must-have addition to your outdoor setup, both to boost your TV audio and play your favorite music around your pool, patio and backyard. Like with a TV, traditional indoor speakers don’t perform well outside, so we recommend investing in a system designed to drive powerful audio in large, open spaces.
Origin Acoustics is a well-known leader in the landscape loudspeaker industry. Their durable, weatherproof bollard loudspeakers have a 360° acoustic lens to deliver far-reaching sound to every corner of your landscape. Accompanied by a buried subwoofer and the DSP3 amplifier, the landscape bollards can handle bass-thumping rock and roll, soft ballads, and every type of music in between with ease.
Origin Acoustics also offers rock speakers to blend into the landscape around the pool or garden and multiple collections for installation on and around the patio so that you can enjoy outdoor music wherever you are on your property.
Home automation brings all your outdoor entertainment systems together for easy access, management, and control. When you integrate your audio and video with Control4, you can use a single smart device — like a smartphone app or tablet — to turn on/off your devices, choose a music playlist, select a video streaming platform, adjust the volume, skip or pause content, and so much more. You can also build custom scenes that use multiple outdoor systems. A “Movie Night” or “Pool Party” scene can instantly set the music and video content to your desired preferences with the touch of a button on your smart device.
