Create Your Personal Outdoor Entertainment Oasis
Outdoor AV, Lighting, and Automation Create an Extension of Your Living Room
Spring and summer are typically the best time in New Jersey to plan a new outdoor amenity. Are you planning an outdoor extension to your Mt. Laurel home? Whether its a new patio and seating area, an outdoor kitchen, or a new pool, adding an outdoor entertainment system can make your outdoor space as comfortable, fun, and enjoyable as the inside of your beautiful home – perhaps even more so.
What do you need to create your outdoor entertainment oasis? You need great sound, visuals from a bright and weatherproof TV, elegant and customizable lighting for any occasion, and easy control and connectivity for all of it. Let’s explore all these in more detail below.

Audio adds the soundtrack to all your outdoor fun, whether it’s summer pool parties or evening cocktails and dinners al fresco. If you enjoy the ease of using Sonos inside your house, did you know you can take it outside? The Sonos system can work with other speakers, too, thanks to custom installed and configured components like the Sonos Port that integrates Sonos streaming audio into any audio system. Easily direct your favorite streaming sources to weather-resistant, elegant outdoor speakers like those from Coastal Source. Choose powerful Bollard models (like outdoor towers) or bullet speakers and subwoofers that nestle in your landscape to provide balanced, powerful sound throughout your outdoors.
Host summer movie nights under the stars or game-watch get-togethers with an outdoor TV. But you don’t want to use regular TVs; they’re not suitable for outdoor use. Outdoor TVs like those from SunBrite are much brighter than regular ones for outdoor viewing, can withstand cold, heat, and wet, and have special screen treatment to reduce glare. You can even connect your TV sound to your outdoor audio system so you never miss a play while you’re grilling, and your summer movie nights will be the envy of the neighborhood!
Set the ambiance for outdoor parties or relaxation with lighting. Light paths, illuminate patio and deck steps, highlight trees, and much more with landscape lighting. Coastal Source lighting fixtures offer solid brass construction and their proprietary Coastal Connector for many years of trouble and corrosion-free operation that stands up to Northeast weather.
Outdoor Automation and Connectivity
You need an easy way to control all your outdoor amenities without a confusing array of switches and remote controls. A Control4 home automation system can manage your lights, outdoor sound, TV, and even pool equipment and water features. Better yet, you can create custom scenes that set up lighting and entertainment to the ideal settings to create the perfect ambiance for your outdoor events and fun.
As today's entertainment and control systems need strong and reliable internet connectivity, you’ll want to add outdoor access points so all your devices can easily connect. Whether you’re streaming music, working on your laptop, or enjoying a movie outside, you’ll enjoy uninterrupted entertainment with outdoor Wi-Fi.
