The Benefits of Outdoor Audio/Video Systems

An outdoor audio video system is the perfect way to maximize just about any outdoor space—whether it’s the backyard, patio or deck of your home or outdoor seating areas for restaurants and beer gardens. With Future Communications, whole home solutions aren’t strictly limited to indoors. We install a variety of industry-leading outdoor A/V systems that can electrify the atmosphere outside your home or restaurant.

Modernized Feel and Performance

Gone are the days of subtle outdoor spaces lacking the latest technology and appliances. Instead, it’s time to throw out your portable speakers, iPhone docks and traditional stereo players that lack in sound quality. With a state-of-the-art outdoor A/V system, your next summer party or happy hour will offer everything your friends and customers have grown to expect in 2019! 

Our outdoor A/V systems offer a wide range of possibilities that can be personalized to fit specific needs. Just imagine optimized music control synchronized with high quality, full-range audio and LED lighting throughout an entire outdoor space or pool area. Sounds like an awesome summer party that will keep your friends coming back. 

And for outdoor sports bars, envision being able to watch the Steelers (hopefully) win on high-definition TVs properly spaced out throughout the entire bar while still listening to the audio broadcast. With the best of both worlds, it almost beats going to Heinz Field!

Safe, Simple and Aesthetically-Pleasing

Our outdoor sound systems and outdoor video systems are free of clunky cables and wires that can get in the way. We bundle them neatly and efficiently so they’ll be out of sight (and out of mind) to maintain the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space, and prevent serious damage from inclement weather or getting stepped on. 

This is especially important for restaurants and bars, considering wires can be easily tripped on by employees and customers. This imposes numerous safety liabilities for management. Weather can wreak havoc on outdoor appliances when cables are involved, which is why we emphasize proper cable installation during our installation process. With how often it storms in the ‘Burgh during the summer months, most outdoor A/V systems we install are sturdy and waterproof so you can save on future costs for repairs and replacements. 

For aesthetic purposes, outdoor A/V systems allow homeowners to keep their backyard stylish with speakers resembling rocks and trees, while outdoor restaurants and bars have more placement options in order to create the best entertainment atmosphere possible. 

Combining outdoor audio and visual electronics with a set of integrated controls is a necessity. With the emergence of mobile technology, you can then access all sources from the device of your choice, allowing for intuitive control from anywhere and anytime. 

Products We Install

Our expertise allows us to identify and recommend the highest quality audio and visual equipment on the market based on the specific needs of your install. We primarily work with Sonos and Sonance audio products and SunBriteTV visual products. 

The Sonos Architectural by Sonance is a collection of weatherproof in-wall, in-ceiling and on-ground outdoor speakers that will maximize outdoor sound potential. It’s specifically designed to work with the Sonos Connect Amp for synchronized whole-home audio and built to withstand extreme heat, UV rays, humidity, rain, snow and freezing temperatures for year-round use in Pittsburgh. The system is compatible with all of your favorite streaming services – Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube, Google Play, etc.

For outdoor video systems, indoor televisions belong inside, not outside. That’s why we recommend SunBriteTV, a longtime top-rated outdoor video system widely considered as a top option on the market. In addition to their weatherproof capabilities, SunBriteTV LED video systems are electronically engineered for safe outdoor use to reduce the risk of fires, electric shocks or wiring damage. Another benefit: they ensure exceptional viewing experiences regardless of the environment with full sun, partial sun and full shade product lines that offer higher brightness, reduced glare and sharper pictures than typical indoor TVs.
