Everything You Need to Watch, Listen and Stream Outside
California graces us with beautiful weather year-round. Fall may not mean rapidly dropping temps and changing leaves for us, but we can still enjoy everything the season brings - from football to Halloween to BBQs. Take advantage of the warm climate and Pacific breezes by enhancing your open-air entertainment setup with outdoor audio, video and improved Wi-Fi, and your Beverly Hills home will be the go-to spot for friends and family who want to gather safely.
Weatherproof, Sun-Friendly TVs
Have you ever tried to watch TV indoors and gotten distracted by an unwelcome glare? No matter how small the affected display area, the glow washes out a portion of your display, rendering your entertainment unwatchable.
You may reasonably suspect that you’ll experience even more of that issue with outdoor TVs, but don’t worry! Our top brand, SunBrite TV, carries three models that accommodate any lighting atmosphere you’ll encounter outdoors - from full sun to partial shade to full shade. And all SunBrite TVs are weatherproof, impervious to extreme temperatures, wind, rain, snow and dust. They come in a range of sizes, including 43”, 55” and 75”.
Audio Engineered for the Great Outdoors
Imagine a breezy October Saturday. The temps have dropped a bit, but it’s sunny and warm enough to enjoy the whole day outside. You’re cooking a spicy fall dish and invite a few people to join you. What’s one element that enhances the food, the conversation and the home atmosphere? Music playing outdoors!
Outdoor audio proves much trickier than dragging your indoor speakers to the patio, though. You need to consider acoustics involved in distributing your sound evenly across the yard - but without it starting a noise complaint from your neighbors. You want your sound to project across the yard, but you don’t want it to sound “boomy” too close to a speaker.
Leave it to the experts at BCG Concepts to calibrate sound for optimal performance using our choice brand, Sonance. The Sonance Landscape Series is the brand’s premium outdoor sound integration system, featuring two satellite speakers, two in-ground subwoofers and one hardscape subwoofer. This brand’s satellite speakers have seen recent updates to size and driver performance.
Even the best devices for watching and listening won’t serve you unless you have a fast, seamless connection powering your AV and automation. The Wi-Fi signal inside your home struggles to pass through housing materials like brick and glass, shutting your outdoor spaces out of high-speed internet. Many people turn to DIY “fixes” for this, such as moving the router indoors closer to their target location outside or installing repeaters.
However, these solutions consume too much time and energy to install and still fail to offer a sustainable result simply because none of them actually boost your network capabilities: They strain the bandwidth you have indoors, essentially weakening your connection.
If you want to stream Netflix outside, watch football livestreams, listen to music services, surf the web, or pull up YouTube videos on your SunBrite TV, you’re going to need a professional Wi-Fi installation. We’ll install wireless access points where you need them most, monitor your speed and pinpoint any weaker areas to optimize.
