Summer weather is in full swing in Paradise Valley, AZ, with average daily temperatures spiking up into 90+ degree heat (and even 100+ degree heat). Even though it’s broiling outside, you don’t need to spend your entire summer cooped up indoors with the AC running full blast. Outdoor entertainment technologies allow you to enjoy your living spaces while remaining comfortable.

Have a movie night after sunset with a Samsung or SunBrite outdoor TV, listen to your favorite playlists in the pool with Coastal Source audio, and stay cool on the patio with exterior Lutron shades. Keep reading to learn more about making the most of your outdoor spaces this summer!

Weatherproof TVs

A weatherproof TV is an amazing addition to your patio, outdoor kitchen, courtyard, pool deck — or multiple areas! You can have a movie night on the patio, binge Hulu TV shows from the pool, and keep an eye on the football game or Summer Olympics while grilling in the outdoor kitchen.

We recommend televisions designed to withstand the outdoors year-round, like Samsung’s The Terrace or a SunBrite TV. The Terrace has crisp 4K resolution, high brightness, an anti-glare screen, vivid color and contrast with HDR, and built-in smart features. SunBrite’s collections also boast 4K UHD resolution, superior brightness, anti-glare display, and HDR support. Both brands have models for full sun or shaded areas, opening up multiple options for placement in your backyard spaces.

A High-Performance Sound System

What’s outdoor entertainment without a little music? You can relax to your favorite Spotify playlist while swimming and suntanning by the pool, stream soft tunes for ambiance during a dinner party, and spread music across the entire backyard for parties and barbecues.

We love Coastal Source speakers for high-performance patio and landscape audio. Coastal Source’s plug-and-play systems are easy to scale based on how much sound coverage you want. Install a few speakers to envelop your patio or pool deck in music or expand your system throughout the landscape to deliver clear, balanced sound throughout your entire backyard.

Exterior Lutron Shades

Arizona summers are hot and buggy, and the scorching heat can be a real deterrent to spending time outside during the summer months. But Oasis Patio Shades and Oasis Retractable Insect Screens Driven by Lutron can help you stay cool, comfortable, and bug-free while you’re relaxing, listening to music, or watching a movie on your patio. We recommend the Oasis Patio Insect Shades, which provide top-notch shade and UV ray protection while sealing out pesky insects. Choose between translucent fabrics, solar screen fabrics, and blackout fabrics, depending on the levels of sun-blocking and privacy you want.
