ReelTime Sight & Sound Brings High-Tech to Outdoor Living

There is so much amazing technology designed to enhance your in-home lifestyle these days. With Spring in the air, Skip Myers at ReelTime Sight & Sound, shared all that’s available to make your outdoor living experience complete.

Outdoor living areas catering to everyday needs such as work, relaxation, and quality family time are becoming the norm. Let’s face it, Southern California weather is meant for outdoor living, and backyard space is more essential than ever.

With ReelTime’s help, your outdoor living space can become a seamless extension of your home’s interior. Adding audio, video, and lighting can transform any yard into the perfect place to entertain family and friends. Having served Orange County for over 50 years, family-owned ReelTime will design and install the perfect system to meet your needs and vision.

Outdoor Television Entertainment

When you add an outdoor TV to your living space, it becomes a focal point that takes backyard entertainment to a whole new level. Today’s outdoor TVs are designed to resist the elements, and they’re even equipped with internal cooling systems to withstand high temperatures. All models have anti-glare screens and deliver bright high definition in the outdoor environment. Also included is a sealed wiring compartment to keep moisture out, powerful audio systems, and a weatherproof remote.

Landscape Speakers

Speakers should be heard and not seen. New models are designed to hide underneath foliage or be affixed to trees throughout the outdoor area. Satellite speakers can be mounted in exposed beams or vaulted ceilings to deliver the highest sonic performance combined with evenly distributed sound levels. Also, subwoofers are buried in the garden bed with only their metal canopy above ground and hidden by plants. For hardscape installations, the subwoofer can be a stand-alone architectural element or be built into a planter box or outdoor furniture for a more discreet look.

You'll be enveloped in high-quality sound at the perfect listening level, no matter where you are positioned in the space. Finally, sound containment is critically important. Today’s products utilize directional speakers that are focused on the desired area, minimizing sound spill, and reducing the risk of disturbing your neighbors.

Outdoor Lighting

Lighting is no longer just a utility for your home. Creating an ambiance that encourages guests to linger requires good lighting. Fortunately, there are a lot of lighting products on the market that will enhance the open-air feel of your space and make outdoor entertaining even better.
