#1 Use Weatherproof Speakers
Some wireless speakers you see in the store may be marketed as travel friendly, but that doesn’t mean they can withstand the rain, sun, and wind. You need speakers that have been engineered to survive nature’s elements. But you can’t pick up high-quality weatherproof speakers in your run of the mill storefront. That’s why working with a local dealer is so important.
The Integrated Home has relationships with speaker manufacturers like Sonance that have been designing and making these smart outdoor devices for decades. Sonance Landscape Series Speakers are waterproof, can withstand the harmful UV rays of the sun, and still operate in freezing temperatures as low as negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Their color-molded composite construction also won’t chip, peel or fade over time.
#2 Use Wireless Technology
Running wires over your patio or pool area is first and foremost not safe because someone could trip over them, and it’s also an electrical hazard. Today, we get to enjoy the convenience of wireless technology so you don’t have to worry about connecting all of your speaker with wires.
