Expand Your Home’s Livable Spaces With Outdoor Entertainment


You don’t need to sacrifice comfort and amusement to spend time outside

When considering a home’s livable spaces, most people only take indoor areas into account. But doing so eliminates all the amazing possibilities at your disposal to enhance outdoor living spaces like the patio, pergola, pool deck, open-area courtyard, outdoor kitchen, recreational area, and backyard.

Reno, NV, homeowners enjoy plenty of sunshine and clear skies during the summer months and mild daytime temperatures during spring and fall. So why not take advantage of the weather by decking out outdoor spaces for entertainment, relaxation, and get-togethers? With outdoor entertainment systems, there’s no need to sacrifice comfort and entertainment to spend time outside. Keep reading to learn all the possibilities for outdoor living spaces!

Outdoor TVs

Bring movies, TV shows, and livestream videos to the patio and pool deck with outdoor televisions. SunBrite TVs are designed to weather the elements year-round in full shade, partial sun, or full sun. SunBrite models have ultra-high brightness, anti-glare protection, and stunning picture quality with 4K UHD resolution and HDR support. In addition, all TVs come with a robust media bay with connections for streaming players, cable, Blu-ray, and gaming systems so that you can have all your favorite content on hand for outdoor viewing.

Outdoor Audio

Music brings life to outdoor activities like swimming, grilling out, game day parties, and casual get-togethers with family and friends. Outdoor speaker systems from Sonance and James Loudspeaker can be scaled to deliver crisp, clear, and even audio coverage to the entire backyard space. And there’s no need to sacrifice your landscape aesthetic to add sound. Satellite speakers and buried subwoofers can blend out of sight with plants and foliage in the backyard.


Why wrap up the party when the sun goes down? Patio, pool deck, and landscape lighting instantly set the mood after dark for a midnight swim, movie night, or another drink on the terrace. Outdoor lighting fixtures from the leading brand Coastal Source can be installed throughout the landscape to draw attention to sculptures, fountains, gardens, and beautiful foliage features. Additionally, arrange outdoor lighting to envelop your patio, outdoor kitchen, open-area courtyard, pergola, and other living spaces in soft light for continued entertainment after sunset.


Window shades aren’t only for indoor windows — they can help you stay cool and comfortable outside on your patio. Leading brands Insolroll and Lutron have teamed up to offer motorized exterior shades to block glare, solar heat gain, and UV rays from reaching the patio. The Oasis Patio Insect Shade delivers superior sun and heat protection, along with insect protection that keeps unwelcome critters out of your living spaces. You can raise or lower exterior shades with the press of a button on a keypad or smartphone or schedule them to open and close at specific times of the day.

Home Automation

Outdoor entertainment should be simple for everyone in the household to manage and enjoy. Home automation with Control4 or Crestron integrates all outdoor technologies under a centralized system — meaning you can control audio, video, lighting, shading, and other smart devices from a single interface like a smartphone app or tablet.

With the press of a button, you can start playing movies and TV on any outdoor TV, send a streaming playlist to the pool speakers, fill the backyard with light after dark, or lower the patio shades when the sun comes out. Better yet, home automation allows you to build custom scenes that automatically adjust the audio, video, lighting, and more to your ideal settings for a specific event (like a pool party) or time of day (like sunset).
