Landscape Lights That Add Ambiance
When we talk about outdoor AV, you probably do not consider landscape lighting. Instead, TV and speakers are usually the first things that come to mind. However, outdoor lights set the mood and scene for any event you are having. The right lights set in strategic locations create the perfect atmosphere to make your outdoor space shine.
If you are hosting a big dance party in the evening, and you want lighting that suits that theme, simply touch a button on your smart remote and everything adjusts automatically. The lighting “scene” you set will provide the lighting color, brightness, and features you want. You are also able to adjust each light remotely. Perhaps you want a peaceful atmosphere. Those same lights can be adjusted with a different scene to suit your mood.
Landscape lighting comes in a wide range of styles and types: bullet lights, path lights, niche lights, hanging lights, and much more. They give your entire landscape real personality. In fact, your property may look even better in the evening.
An Outdoor, Surround-Sound Experience
Does your life move to the sound of music? Instead of depending on earbuds or the speaker system in your house, expand your sound space by install outdoor audio. Premium hi-fi speakers from world-renowned brands like Yamaha deliver sound quality that surpasses the norm. Their outdoor speakers are not only durable in all weather conditions, but they produce a superior sound quality that can only be expected from a trusted brand.
Put the bass back in your backyard with subwoofers that help you feel the music. Properly positioned speakers throughout your yard create a surround-sound experience that envelopes you. Wherever you go – on the porch, by the pool, under the gazebo – you enjoy the same superior sound. Of course, you can adjust every aspect – both outdoor audio and whole-home audio – with your Control4 tablet or mobile app.
Ultra-High-Definition 4K TVs
Are you still watching an HD TV? It may have been the latest innovation a few years ago, but now, you should think about upgrading to a 4K TV. It provides more than four times the detail of an HD TV. Before you consider purchasing one and hanging it outside on your porch, think again. Most indoor TVs are not suited for outdoor spaces. That is because the displays are not bright enough to compete with the sun.
Outdoor TVs are specifically made with super-bright displays. Some models can be 60% brighter than indoor TVs. The movies and shows you watch will pop with vivid colors and contrast – no matter how bright the sunlight is. In addition, outdoor TVs are built to last. In snow, rain, heat, and cold, they provide reliable performance for many years without image fade. During the day or in the evening, spend time with friends watching the game, a feature film, or your favorite show – all while enjoying your beautiful backyard.
