Séura outdoor HDTV’s make a great centerpiece for a pool deck. They are wind, water, heat, and cold resistant.

Séura’s outdoor soundbar combines carbon fiber woofers and titanium tweeters for consistently immersive sound. The Outdoor TV series from Séura delivers an incredible viewing experience for the patio all year round.

2. Sound

Sonance speakers infuse sound into your outdoor living space from every direction. As you sunbathe in your garden sanctuary, you can soak up the sun and the music that feeds your soul. Fresh creative speakers are heard, not seen. Innovatively designed, they blend into the garden, disappear under the vistas, and border walkways in a sleek modern style. The speakers are all-weather with incredible hi-fidelity sound quality. Subwoofers hide underground to distribute sound evenly throughout. Sonance speakers are Alexa compatible, so you can change your playlist with voice commands while soaking in the hot tub drinking an icy cocktail.

3. Light

Creating alluring outdoor ambiance is easy with Lutron Caseta lighting. Using pre-programmed scenes, exterior lights can be adjusted with the tap of your smart device as well as voice control. As the sun sets on your patio party, the pool deck and walkways illuminate on demand to embody the perfect atmosphere for your guests.

Hayward Universal Colorlogic LED lights drench your pool with color as day turns to night. Choose from 10 rich colors including purple, blue, and green. Larger floor and wall lights fill the entire pool with the glow of your choice, while smaller accent lights highlight water features. Hayward’s Colorlogic line is 100% brighter than any other LED color light available and lets you change the color according to mood or event.

4. Security

With security cameras from Axis Communications, you can enjoy an evening of relaxing alone on your patio or hosting guests, without worry over unforeseen incidents. Axis cameras keep a 360-degree eye on the perimeter, so you can decide who joins you in your outdoor retreat.

Home security brings peace of mind so you can fully enjoy your outdoor living space.

5. Maintenance

Time spent relaxing in the outside areas of your home should be free from concern over security, maintenance, or any interruption.
