Are Outdoor TVs Really Weatherproof?

Outdoor Televisions & Their Power of Weather-Resistance

It may be hard to believe, but outdoor televisions made by brands like Séura and SunBriteTV can stay mounted outdoors all year long. Even if it rains, snows, or is 90 degrees in the summertime, the outdoor TV will still perform flawlessly.

As a home technology integrator based in St. Louis, MO, we regularly install outdoor TV systems in our customers' backyards. How are outdoor TVs able to withstand the elements? In this blog, we'll share what to look for in an outdoor TV installation to ensure your display is safe in all weather conditions. 

Rust & Corrosion-Proof

We work with outdoor TV brands like Séura and SunBriteTV that construct their displays with powder-coated frames. These frames are rust and corrosion-resistant, so they protect the internal hardware for years of use. 

Extreme Temperatures

Outdoor televisions include an internal heating and cooling system that regulates their running temperature. The system protects the TV in temperatures as low as -40° F and as high as 140° F!

Water, Weather & Humidity

Outdoor TVs also include thick gaskets and waterproof inputs to protect your media players and boxes. Look for an outdoor TV that's IP55 rated, meaning it's fully sealed against all rain, snow, dust, ice, and debris. Séura and SunBriteTV even offer weatherproof remotes, so they can stay on the patio table year-round, too.

Solar Tolerance

Another feature of outdoor TVs is their Extended Solar Tolerance (EST) technology that protects the screen from isotropic blackouts—dark spots that can appear on the screen from the sun. Even in direct sunlight, the screen will stay preserved and ready to play anytime.

Wear & Tear

If your outdoor TV is mounted by the pool or in the yard, you don't have to worry about someone accidentally bumping into it. The tempered glass shield protects the screen so it won't dent or crack easily.
