OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS

Smart Home technology is now standard inside many homes, and that tech now extends outside into modern outdoor living spaces. Your outdoor space can include music, video, lighting control, camera surveillance, and more. If you already have an indoor smart system, we can even integrate your outdoor system control into your indoor systems, offering seamless control at your fingertips.

Our Paragon Smart team is well versed in outdoor tech and offers design and installation of outdoor systems to seamlessly integrate with your Smart Home. To learn how Paragon can enhance your backyard experience, contact us to schedule a consultation today.

MAKING A PERFECT OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

At Paragon, we don't push pre-set cookie-cutter systems. We believe that each system should be custom designed to fit our client's preferences and their space. Our Paragon smart home design team considers performance, product placement, required electronics, wiring runs, lighting, system control, and more. When we design an outdoor system, we consider all of these factors and we work with you to find what fits your personal taste and budget.

OUTDOOR SPEAKERS

Whether you’re relaxing on your deck, by the pool, or hanging out at the barbecue, music enhances the natural beauty of your yard and sets the tone for how you spend your leisure time. We can accomplish outdoor music with a variety of speaker types, which differ in size, style, placement, and performance. Paragon's selection of outdoor speakers range from speakers that can be mounted to your home's exterior or deck, to in-ceiling speakers for your three-seasons room, or even landscape speakers that blend into your garden and spread sound throughout your yard. Check-out three of our speaker vendors below - who offer a wide selection of outdoor speaker solutions to fit your exact needs.

One of our favorite outdoor speaker options is the Sonance Landscape Series (LS) speakers. Tuck these waterproof speakers and underground subwoofer amongst your landscape planting, and crystal clear music will seemingly emanate from the foliage, creating atmosphere and ambiance - without disturbing your neighbors.

LS speakers are placed near the perimeter of the property and are directed inwards, towards the listening area. The result is a blanket of sound in your yard, and minimal sound spillover into your neighbor’s property. The LS speakers look like landscape lights, and mounting options allow them to be tucked away behind bushes, under plants, or beside structures. The subwoofer is buried underground with an exposed mushroom top that distributes bass energy, depth, and punch you’d never expect outside. The LS series is a totally scalable outdoor speaker system that delivers perfectly even-coverage and unbelievable sound quality throughout any sized space.

If landscape speakers aren't the right solution for you, Sonance has an assortment of other outdoor speaker options, including rock speakers, mounted marine speakers, and weatherproof in-ceiling speakers. To find more information on these products, visit our Sonance brand page.

In 2018, Leon Speakers acquired Terra Speakers, boosting their outdoor speakers selection. Both companies are headquartered in the United States, and both manufacture their products in the U.S. - with Leon Speakers being located here in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Terra in Brunswick, Maine.

Our favorite outdoor speaker product by Terra is their LS Series, which combines a bollard style light with a speaker - offering both music and lighting to your landscape all-in-one. The LS Series comes in two sizes a 10-inch (LS10) and 32-inch tall column (LS32). The LS10 is available as a speaker-only, or as a speaker with a halo top light. The LS32 is available in four configurations: speaker-only, speaker with halo light, speaker with down-turned path lighting, or speaker with both halo and path lights. The LS Series outdoor speakers are an attractive source of sound and light that can be easily controlled by a Savant smart home system.

If you're looking for an alternative to landscape speakers, Leon Speakers offers three series of mountable marine speakers that can be attached to your home's exterior, your deck, your fence, and more. To learn more about Leon Speakers' outdoor speaker lines, visit our Leon Speakers brand page.

For a simpler outdoor music system, Focal's 100 Series speakers are a great solution. Their 100 Series loudspeakers stand up to all-weather and bring high-fidelity sound to the outdoors.

The 100 Series features two speaker models: The 100 OD6 & 100 OD8. These loudspeakers have reaped the rewards of Focal's expertise and deliver high quality sound playback in outdoor environments. Just like the other models in the 100 Series range, they contain Focal technologies with an Aluminum inverted dome tweeter and a Polyglass treated bass/mid-range speaker driver at the source of their acoustic performance. The 100-series outdoor loudspeakers are IP66 certified, which is an international standard that demonstrates remarkable resistance of products to extreme weather conditions, and more specifically their watertight and dust-proof qualities.

Mounting the 100 Series is made easy with a 180-degree rotation system so the speakers can be positioned (either horizontally or vertically). And the white-finish is paintable - so you can match your home's exterior paint color or accent color. Contact us for more information.

OUTDOOR TVS

For those who want to enjoy the weather but not miss your sports game, outdoor waterproof TVs are a great addition to your outdoor system. It’s a crisp, cool Saturday in October and football is in the air. If you don’t have a ticket to the game, hanging out with friends in your backyard and watching the game on your outdoor TV is a blast. In the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of “outdoor ready” video options. The Paragon team has installed plenty of outdoor TVs and we know all the tricks to selecting the best location. We've highlighted our two most popular outdoor TV vendors below.

Séura has developed fully waterproof TVs, designed for either low-sun areas, such as covered decks, or high-sun areas near a pool or open deck. Today’s outdoor TVs live outside all year round, so you can brave the elements and watch everything from the frozen four to the final four.

Install the same all-weather screens used by professional sports stadiums and public venues across the country with SunBrite TVs. These all-weather, outdoor TVs display superior brightness, while resisting the harsh effects of rain, dirt, insects, & extreme temps.

SunBrite TVs offer 50% to 3 times higher brightness, reduced glare, and a sharper picture than typical indoor TVs. This provides an ideal viewing experience in brighter outdoor environments.

SunBriteTV features three outdoor TV series made for different brightness levels. The Veranda Series TVs are made for full shade applications, like three seasons rooms, or covered shaded decks.

Enhance your outdoor entertainment space with landscape lighting. One of the most popular lighting options is pathway lighting.

Paragon offers installation and integration of surveillance cameras. Paragon's standard camera and NVR system supports 1080p video quality, or an upgraded system for 4K definition is also available.

ELECTRONICS FOR YOUR OUTDOOR SYSTEM

To complete your outdoor system control, you will need some basic electronics as well as wiring. For basic outdoor music systems, you will need a distributed audio amplifier to power the speakers. You also want to consider your music source, or how you want to play music through the system. The most popular music source is to wirelessly stream music through your system. To have this capability, you will need a music streamer component. If you want total smart home control, add a Savant host, and you can integrate many systems into one remote: music, lighting, video, security, climate, etc.

The advantage to working with Paragon is that we consider all of these aspects when we consult with you. We know the right questions to ask, and we know that details matter. Our goal is to design and install a system that works exactly how you want. Ready to get started?
