With Control4, you can create the same kind of seamlessly automated and integrated experience outside that you already enjoy indoors. The sky is literally the limit to what you can add to your exterior spaces to fully customize and tailor them to your lifestyle, from outdoor rated TV’s, immersive landscape speakers, and the ability to telecommute from your backyard with robust networking capabilities. Keep reading to dive deeper into all the products that can be combined to create your ideal outdoor space.
Outdoor TVs (SunBright)
Whether you want to gather family around for a movie night, or rally your friends over to catch a game, never miss a moment with a brilliant, glare-free SunBright TV . Your average indoor TV is not rated to survive the variety of conditions the outdoors can throw at them, so you want something built to purpose. SunBright TV’s are weatherproof, with sealed compartments for your media cables and a powder coated exterior. Each one is built with its own heating and cooling system to maintain the correct temperature, which allows it to function in temperatures ranging from -24 degrees to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Whether you’re trying to watch a film under the stars or sports during the brightest part of the day, SunBright will provide the maximum viewing experience outside.

Outdoor Audio (Episode and Triad)

Premium sound quality doesn’t need to stop inside when you have Episode or Triad speakers. These durable, weatherproof outdoor speakers can be discreetly tucked into architectural details or landscaping so your speakers will be heard but not seen. They’ve been engineered to deliver consistent, immersive sound throughout an area without harsh loud spots or too quiet areas. Each speaker allows individual adjustments to create the ambiance you desire, and the directional abilities mean you’ll be focusing the sound where you want to, not pointing noise at your neighbor’s house.

Outdoor Lighting (FX Luminaire)

No need to let sunset spoil your evening when you can add outdoor lighting from FX Luminaire to your exterior. Add lighting to highlight architectural details or safely maneuver after dark with lit pathways. Program automated scenes to get the party started, or one touch to turn everything off after the last guest has left for the evening. You can even change the tone or color of your lighting and customize scenes to the season or even a single party.
