How To Add An Outdoor Audio System To Your Patio
How To Add An Outdoor Audio System To Your Patio

Summer in Toronto is too short for our liking; naturally, we feel the need to make the most out of it. We would love to spend as much time outdoors as possible, be it a barbecue with friends and family or a swim with the kids. Why not add your favourite music to the mix? With an outdoor audio system from Audio One, you can play music as you get your grill on! Follow these 3 steps for a great sounding outdoor audio system for your patio.

Choose equipment based on your need

For great sound, you need great speakers that are built for all weather conditions. We at Audio One only suggest the best; our brands include Coastal Source, Bowers & Wilkins and Paradigm. The bollard speakers or bullet speakers from Coastal Source, the rock monitor or garden oasis from Paradigm and the outdoor/marine collection from Bowers & Wilkins blend perfectly well with their surrounding areas, produce high-quality audio and are built to last. Connect these speakers to a wireless audio system and you can control your music straight from your smartphone or tablet. Go ahead and stream! Get an outdoor TV set from SunBriteTV and you can even catch all the sporting action in the comfort of your backyard.

Incorporate it into your whole home audio system

Linking your outdoor speakers to your whole home audio system will give you reliable, high-quality sound. This allows you to connect your speakers to your television, CD player, turntable or other streaming devices without the need of moving them outdoors. That way they stay safe indoors while you soak up the sun and continue enjoying your music.

Get professional installation for best results

With professional installation services, you are guaranteed to get the best out of your purchase. Deciding where to place the speakers and how many speakers are required can be a tricky decision. This all depends on how you plan to use your system. We suggest multiple speakers and facing these speakers towards your home. Having multiple speakers lets you evenly distribute the sound so it is not too loud in one area and too low in another. As well it sounds better and more even at lower volumes so you don’t have to bother the neighbours. Creating distinct audio zones lets you adjust the volume for certain areas separately.

The tides are changing and when it comes to smart home installation; it is evident that the future is already here.

 

The term ‘smart home’ is no longer hype. Today, consumers are being confronted with home automation systems that offer a higher level of convenience compared to antiquated modes of control such as handheld remotes.

Thanks to new automated systems, the ability to control anything is right at the customer’s fingertips. Often, customers do not even need to press any buttons much to the delight of many consumers. Aside from helping to control the TV, home automated systems can also be used for a number of other applications including controlling lights, security devices, lawn sprinklers, thermostats, as well as motorized window treatments and much more. As the technology continues to grow, home automated systems of the future are expected to make life a whole lot easier.

Ten years ago, the idea of controlling your home remotely via a home automated system would have been unfathomable but it is clear that these automated systems are not going anywhere anytime soon.

In fact, the artificial intelligence technology that makes devices smart continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and this year holds even more promise for more advanced automated systems to enter the market. Whether you need to tech up your space with a smart coffee machine or something else entirely, the advantages of smart home installation include:

Convenience

The convenience factor supplied by various home automation applications is considerable. All the technology in your home can be controlled through a single interface, home automation applications allow you to tap into countless functions throughout your home. Depending on the parameters set by the professional smart home installer, individuals can keep their spaces comfortable while being mindful of the energy use.

Maximized security

When you incorporate smart security and surveillance technology such as smart locks, motion detectors and automated door locks in your home, your home security can be heightened and you can be able to monitor events in real time even when you are across the globe. When the security parameters work hand in hand with home automated systems, customers can and will enjoy an even higher level of security.

Improved functionality

Because automated applications make traditional devices function a lot better, functionality in the home and the ability to seamlessly execute mundane tasks such as cooking dishes to perfection will be improved significantly. Home automated systems also help users to keep tabs on everything that is happening at home so that they can respond appropriately whenever necessary.
