Project Profile: Backyard BBQ

The Ultimate Spring BBQ

The homeowners were looking for the ultimate party destination to entertain their guests right in their own backyard. This backyard has several different areas for lounging, gaming and entertaining; from the pool house and outdoor kitchen to the bocce ball court and trampoline there is no shortage of fun from the second you step outside.

SoundVision made sure music was able to reach every corner of this spacious yard, along with a full range wireless network. So whether guests are relaxing at the pool, firing up the BBQ or playing basketball on the opposite end of the yard guests are able to hear their music in perfect clarity.

No party would be complete with out the necessities; an outdoor kitchen area, built in BBQ, mini fridge, bar area and couches surrounding the outdoor fireplace and TV.  For this space we installed a 70” TV with two Sonance outdoor speakers perfect for watching the big game or a movie under the stars. We programmed this system to play Sonos audio while watching TV or playing XBOX, so the party never has to stop. The roof is automated so guests get the chance to enjoy the sun rays or be protected from the rain.

The outdoor rock speakers were placed discreetly in the landscaping to deliver superb sound quality and are unbelievably durable when exposed to high heat, wind rain or snow. 

 The biggest challenge was getting a wireless access point installed on the main house that would cover such a large area. In order to achieve our goal of fast and reliable Wi-Fi throughout the entire yard we ran cat6DB through conduit to the pool house and installed two Pakedge high powered outdoor wireless access points.

This backyard won Electronic Home’s award for Best Outdoor Space,
