An outdoor TV Lift Cabinet designed specifically to withstand the elements and still deliver great TV watching possibilities
Before you go spending thousands of dollars on an expensive water proof TV for the back patio, you may want to consider a few things.
When it comes to watching TV outside, there really are only 2 options. 1. you can buy a TV that's specifically designed for the outdoors, or you use a regular TV and have it hidden away in a waterproof TV cabinet that's designed for outdoor use. Or 3. Use a projector and outdoor projection screen.
Lets explore the first option. This TV below is 55-Inch and can withstand the great Outdoor weather, but requires constant screen cleaning unless you're able to cover it when not in use, and it could be a theft problem as most people know these TV's are expensive.
Another option is to use a regular TV you perhaps already own and fit it inside an outdoor TV lift Cabinet. This cabinet has the added advantage of been able to hold a regular TV up to 55-Inch and still stay protected from the Weather, because the cabinets are fully water-proof, and stay out of sign when not in use, so that they are not likely to be stolen.
This outdoor TV cabinet is made from the same plastic used for outdoor furniture and plant Pots and other outdoor equipment, and given the same texture and color to match most outdoor décor with a dark grey stone texture. Below is a close up of the cabinet finish.
This cabinet works in a very simple way. The Cabinet has a built in TV lift mechanism thats controlled via am RF remote (included) as well as a wired remote. Pressing a button on these remotes simply lift the TV up out of the cabinet. The lid of the cabinet also lifts up with the TV and provides the additional benefit of providing some shade to the TV.
The Lid also acts as a safety device because it is held onto the mechinism via some carefully selected magnets that allow the lid to pop off automatically if a childs hand gets in the way of the lift, as its dropping the TV back into the cabinet. Poping the lid back on after any object that was in the way has now been removed, will get things back to normal operation.

a 3rd option that is less popular is to use a projector that's mounted under a table that projects the screen onto an outdoor projector screen.
The main issue with using a projector screen is that they do tend to fall over at the slightest breeze, but they do work and perform better when its dark our because projectors are not very good during the day. You also need to inflate or erect the screen before use.
