BEST Outdoor Home 2015 – Electronic House

Electronic House: BEST Outdoor Home 2015

“Zones of Wicked Fun”

SoundVision did it again! You might remember our Project Profile from March “Backyard BBQ,” well Electronic House magazine just awarded SoundVision one of the prestigious Home of the Year awards for 2015.

Congrats to the entire SoundVision Team, from the technicians to our project managers to our programmers and office staff, we work together so we can succeed together!

Our Ultimate Spring Backyard BBQ won SILVER for Best Outdoor Space for being one of the finest installs of the year. This Novato home had a huge backyard with plenty of room for activities. Homeowners wanted to enhance their space by adding outdoor audio, outdoor TV and hidden speakers, making their home the ideal place for outdoor entertaining this summer!

Judging criteria for the Electronic House 2015 Home of the Year Awards included all aspects of custom installation, such as project creativity, innovation, equipment, obstacles overcome, homeowner priorities, aesthetics and lifestyle benefits.



Backyard Features:

  • Outdoor TV
  • Outdoor Rock Speakers
  • Outdoor Sonance Speakers
  • Sonos Audio system
  • Wi-Fi everywhere via Outdoor WAP


Outdoor Tech Tip:

The most important consideration when planning outdoor entertainment spaces is always, always use outdoor rated products. The elements of wind, water and salt-air can be corrosive to sensitive electronics. That’s why this killer space contains outdoor-rated Sonance Speakers, an outdoor-rated TV and uses direct burial grade cable that won’t allow moisture to contact the wires inside. For wireless connectivity, use weatherproof or waterproof wireless access points so no loss of Wi-Fi coverage will occur– for you or your guests.”
