As spring turns to summer, we tend to linger longer outdoors. There's no reason to go inside when day becomes night; instead, let your entertainment meet you outside. A well-integrated home system includes the option to listen to music through your landscape rock speakers or watch a movie on your weatherproof flatscreen. At Thornhill, we have exactly what you need for summer.
Remember to weatherproof your equipment
When you're outdoors, you should be aware of humidity, sun, rain, and other factors that could damage your entertainment system. Be sure you're purchasing equipment, connections, and cables specifically made for outside usage, and you'll be impressed at how beautifully your system will perform.
Extend your WiFi to the edge of your property
Do you notice a change in your WiFi quality as you get closer to the edge of your property? Watching a tutorial while you garden or video chatting with a close friend in the sunshine shouldn't be difficult. Extend your coverage past the limit of your backdoor with WiFi extender products and services that grant you the freedom to expand your WiFi to the edge of the yard.
Enjoy family movie night with the fireflies
There's no need to settle for a buzzing projector and an old bedsheet when you can watch movies on a weather-resistant flatscreen TV. This summer, it's possible to watch football games, TV shows, and comedy specials during the night in HD or 4k.
Adjust the temperature for the weather
The number of cool nights left is limited; warmer nights are becoming more frequent. You’ll be able to adjust your porch’s temperature for optimized comfort with integrated climate control. You and your entertainment systems can continue to enjoy yourselves no matter what the weather does for the day.
Rock'n'roll with landscape speakers
It's time to invest in audio options for your entertainment system. Classic speakers invite potential robbers to your home and can be somewhat of an eyesore. However, landscape rock speakers are the perfect solution. They blend perfectly with the natural settings of your garden's features and will keep your guests guessing the source of the music.
Feel the bass through the ground
It's possible for our team of professionals to install subwoofers below the ground, which leave them out of your sight. However, you'll definitely know they're there with the bass vibrating under your feet.
Set the mood with automated lighting
Our outdoor lighting systems add some excitement to your yard, whether you want colorful lights for summertime parties in your pool, garden, or patio. You'll be able to control their settings and customize timed settings for the lights to switch on and off too.
Unify all your systems with home automation
The easiest way to optimize your entertainment system's efficiency is through a centralized network and an automated system. You'll be able to adjust lighting, music, and television on a single touchscreen mounted on the wall, giving you more time to relax and less time hassling with remotes.
Operate your system through your mobile device
If you aren’t feeling drawn to operating your system through a screen on the wall, a mobile app may be a fantastic alternate option. Your cell phone or tablet will be able to change up your entertainment, temperature, and lighting within seconds.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy your new outdoor system
This final step is the most important and the easiest! Create time to relax with family and friends to get the most use out of your outdoor equipment. Our team of experts at Thornhill can help you design and install an automated outdoor system that fits any lifestyle. Give us a call today to get started!
