With this current wet and blustery weather, it is hard to imagine the blistering heat of summer. The endless sun cream, sun hats and sunglasses. Wondering if you will ever be cool again. It is likely however, that we will soon be experiencing an even hotter summer than last, given that the World Meteorological Organisation reports that the top four hottest years on record have been the last four. So, how can installers benefit from the warmer weather?

Know your outdoor speakers

Research the latest outdoor speakers and get familiar with how to install them. As the temperatures start to rise, customers want to be able to entertain their guests outdoors. From family BBQ’s and late-night parties to large corporate events; they want the latest outdoor speakers to be able to wow their guests. Connectivity issues and sub-par sound quality are no longer tolerated.

Be prepared for ‘Outdoor Cinema’ requests

In the same vein, customers increasingly want to make the most out of their outdoor space by creating an outdoor sitting ‘room’ with either an Outdoor TV or projector. This means that you should be familiar with options that have a high brightness rating, high waterproof rating, as well as a wide operating temperature.

A good example of this our Lifestyle Outdoor TV, designed for specifically for residential installs. It is 2x brighter than the average TV, IP66 rated, and has an operating temperature of between -20 to 60 degrees.

Similarly, our Aire Outdoor TV, which is the perfect fit for commercial projects also has these qualities; being 5 x brighter than the average TV, IP66 rated, and has an operating temperature of between -20 to 60 degrees. It also features RS232 over IP for your home integration needs.

Have digital signage options on stand by

Finally, you should be ready to capitalise on the summer season of pop-up shops with digital signage options ready to install. From large digital displays for shop signs to video walls for showcasing products, you need to be able to respond quickly to requests from customers looking to make the most out of their temporary location.
