Backyard indoor-outdoor living can look like many different things. Depending on your hobbies, whom you entertain, and where you live, the possibilities are endless.
With so many streaming music and video platforms available to us, great content is available virtually everywhere. Why not bring it to your backyard, whether this is a completely open area or a screened sunroom? Here are some expert tips on how to enjoy your backyard indoor-outdoor living spaces.
Equipment Made for the Great Outdoors
Even if you plan to only keep your technology and electronics in a screened-in sunroom, think about humidity and rainy days. Make sure your equipment is specifically built for the outdoors. Atlanta can get pretty humid, so choose reliable, weatherproof equipment that can handle moisture, dust, and other potentially damaging environmental factors. Choose wireless speakers that not only provide rich audio quality, but are durably constructed to stand the test of time.
This technology enables you to move from room to room indoors or outside with uninterrupted access to your media. You can control these systems directly from your smartphone, tablet, or any other mobile device. No need to fiddle with annoying remote controls because everything is at your fingertips. Another benefit is most of these systems are compatible with other smart home technologies like your indoor entertainment system, lighting control, home networking, and security.
Making Sure Your Equipment is Properly Installed
If equipment installation is your thing, then you should be in good shape. However, if your goal is to create a completely immersive entertainment experience for backyard indoor-outdoor living, consider installation. You may want to purchase your equipment from a firm that also offers installation services. Nothing is more frustrating than having technical issues when you’re ready to watch the latest film or chill out with some relaxing music when entertaining friends.
Setting Up Speakers That Distribute Sound Evenly
If you want a surround sound quality experience, a single speaker won’t do the job. Evenly distribute speakers around the perimeter of your deck, porch, or outdoor space for better coverage and a superior listening experience.
Growing Your Wi-Fi Coverage
Chances are your home router sends limited signals beyond your home’s perimeter, which can be problematic if you want to cover your entire backyard. Consider adding a wireless access point outside, which will produce the signal strength you need to stream your entertainment without interruptions. Look for options with a casing that offers protection against water, dust, dirt, or the dreaded lightning strike!
