You Don’t Use Indoor Speakers Outside, Right?
Outdoor TV and audio can add many more hours of pleasure in your outdoor spaces and help you maximize your investment. Yet we at Georgia Home Theater have often wondered why we see outdoor TV installations in the Sandy Springs area and throughout Metro Atlanta use TVs made for indoor use only. We know the primary driver for this is cost.
As an audio-video retailer and integrator, we understand that the prices of flat-panel TVs have come down precipitously, and outdoor models are more expensive, so it might seem like a good decision to use an inexpensive outdoor TV outside. We have just three words for that:
Don't do it.
It's akin to using an indoor electrical extension cord outside and leaving it there throughout the four seasons. You wouldn't do that, right? A quality outdoor TV can be viewed as an investment in your outdoor entertainment, just like the outdoor speakers you may have. Here are all the reasons you need to justify the purchase of a real outdoor TV for your home.
Enjoy the Ultimate Outdoor TV Installation At Your Home This Spring
Spring is finally here, and our thoughts are turning to warmer weather and outside activities. The cold temperatures of winter are over. And soon, it will be warm – and humid – again.
Since we are blessed with a relatively mild climate in the Metro Atlanta area, we get to use our outdoor patios, yards, and pools much more than our neighbors to the north. And because of that, we can plan more activities outdoors. But sometimes, our indoor entertainment beckons to us to stay inside – a great movie, the latest Netflix show, or screaming at the TV in an attempt to will the Hawks into the NBA playoffs. It doesn't have to be that way.
We have no solution for the Hawks at the moment, but we do have an answer for taking your entertainment outside. Why not outfit your Buckhead-area patio with an outdoor TV installation? You can watch the NBA playoffs this spring on your patio this spring, with or without the Hawks. You can cheer on the Braves toward another National League East title on balmy summer evenings. And of course, you can do fun summer movie nights with family and friends.
We’re not talking about just any outdoor TV installation here. We’re talking about the next level in complete outdoor audio-visual entertainment – the Stealth Acoustics Patio Theater.

Get to Know Séura and SunBriteTV, Two Leading Outdoor TV Brands
Spring is almost here, and we're ready to be outside. Warmer temperatures and sunny skies will lure us outside. But March Madness is just around the corner too, and the NBA playoffs and our beloved Braves will soon follow, as well. We do want to spend time outdoors, but there are some important things we want to watch too.
Fear not, we have a solution. An outdoor TV installation can help you enjoy all the sports and shows you don’t want to miss, and you can do it all in the fresh outside air – even in the sun on your Roswell patio if you like. You might ask if a standard indoor TV can be placed outdoors. The answer is yes, but they're not designed to do so. First, the screens may not be designed for outdoor lighting levels. Second, swings in temperature and humidity might affect their performance, or cause them not to work at all. Finally, those pesky bugs have a way of finding their way into regular TVs and creating problems.
We at Georgia Home Theater believe indoor TVs should stay indoors. There are outdoor TVs – just like outdoor speakers – that are designed to provide years of service outside. We work with two of the best outdoor TV manufacturers - SunBriteTV and Séura – and each has the weatherproofing and screen designs to perform brilliantly outdoors.

Expand Your Entertainment with An Outdoor TV Installation
People gather around the TV, and one of the quickest ways to make your outdoor space more inviting is by installing TVs on patios, decks, cabanas, pergolas, and even next to your pool.
Invite friends over to watch the World Cup while you barbeque. Play music videos while splashing around in the pool. Or maybe you want to unwind outside at the end of the day by hopping in a deck chair, cracking open a bottle of wine, and loading up Netflix.
An outdoor TV installation does pose different challenges than setting up a device inside, and you need to find durable, weather-resistant equipment that will deliver a high-quality picture in constantly changing lighting conditions. We work directly with Séura and SunBriteTV, two of the leading manufacturers of outdoor TVs, and they’ve mastered this technology over the years.
