Unite your love of the outdoors with your favorite theater by bringing good video images to your pool, patio, or backyard. The first step in any outdoor installing a television is investing in a 4K Ultra HD TV designed to resist glare and brave the elements. Then it’s the period to figure out where you should place your brand new television. Do you want to be able to timepiece it while you swim with your kids? Would you rather have it by the grill to hold a cookout for the Rangers game?
Below we offer some standard guidelines you should follow while installing a television:
Find Protection from the Elements
Just because your TV is intended to brave the elements doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go out of your way to defend it. If possible, try to install your television in a roofed-in area to avoid storms and direct sunlight. This will enhance your viewing experience, and it will also expand your TV’s lifespan.you can use patch leads as well for the long lasting use.
Match Your Preferences
Many families are tempted to install their televisions where it makes the most sense due to size or wiring restraints. On the surface, this is an outstanding idea. The problem is that many families install televisions in outdoor spaces that they don’t typically use.
With a professional TV connection, your AV technician can take care of all the needed wiring and help you find the TV size that makes the most sense. You can optimize your installation while still placing your television in an area where your family likes to devote time.
Avoid Any Problem Areas
When choosing a location for your outdoor television, you want to keep the six-foot rule in mind. Your television should be at least six feet from numerous structures that could harm it or your image quality. Having your TV too close to a fireplace or BBQ could cause your equipment to overheat. Keep it far from the pool to make sure people don’t try to use it while they swim and to avoid any big splashes.
Setting the Right Viewing Line
During your TV installation, you still need to follow some of the basic rules you would indoors. Let’s say, you want to make sure that you’re placing your TV where the most critical amount of people would be able to timepiece it. The right angle can give it a giant viewing cone—so people throughout your patio, pool, or backyard can see the image. Your TV also needs to be high enough to see it from various areas without other people getting in the way.
Escape from Sun
Though TVs include anti-glare technology, you want to try to get away from the sun’s rays. One thing you can do is have it in a shaded area like a porch or patio. You also want to mount it facing south. This way, the sun is never hitting your TV directly as you watch, and, more importantly, you’re never looking directly into the sun.
Installing a Television
When mounting a television, there are several ways to consider safety and placement. Make sure to mount your TV at least four to six inches above the furniture. If your walls are brick, be sure to choose a mounting bracket that’s strong enough to support the weight of the television. Also, make sure your power supply can handle any extras you add to your installation. Then, you can choose a stand that is close to the wall, such as a cabinet or floating shelves.
Before you mount the television, take measurements of your room. The screen’s height should be lower than eye level for most people sitting and standing. You can measure its height using paper or cardboard and tape it to the wall. Then, gather the entire household to look at the wall and make sure you have the correct height. You may want to adjust the height if needed, but be sure to choose a wall with studs.
First, locate studs. If you have no studs, you should drill holes for the mounting bracket. Make sure to use a stud finder, as a machine can sometimes make mistakes. To be extra safe, poke a small hole in the wall to confirm the stud location. If it’s not, mark it with a pencil. Measure again. If the wall’s stud location is far enough, drill holes for the mounting bracket.
