Motorized Outdoor TV Lifts

by Steve Hartfelder

For years your backyard has felt neglected, under-utilized, and just generally jealous. It watches painfully as you sit inside listening to music, watching movies, and enjoying family time. All the while the spaciousness and fresh air of your backyard feels as lonely and empty as your patio furniture.

It’s time to stop the madness and extend your entertainment beyond your walls. Take a step outside and give your yard the treatment it deserves. Draw in a breath of fresh air while you relax and listen to your favorite music. Or kick up your feet and watch your favorite movie.

You need this as much as your backyard does. Lucky for you, your friends at Diamond Case Designs, Inc. will help you choose the perfect outdoor television or outdoor speakers to bring peace, harmony, and balance to your backyard.

Motorized Outdoor TV Lift Examples:

We custom manufactured a stucco enclosure and faux brick lid for this Diamond Case exclusive outdoor TV lift. The entertainment was provided by a Sunbrite outdoor TV and sound bar. The electronics were organized inside the clients home and controlled through a radio frequency remote.

This was a really cool installation. We engineered a custom Diamond Case outdoor TV lift to rest on a narrow stone foundation next to the customers pool and spa equipment. This lift was the perfect solution to provide killer outdoor entertainment while simultaneously helping conceal the pool equipment. The furniture was built in a specialized composite outdoor decking material for longevity, quality, and weather resistance.  A specialized swivel mechanism was installed allowing the TV to be angled towards the pool or spa ensuring you always have the best seat in the house.

At the touch of a button the TV could be lowered into the specialized outdoor TV lift. In addition to an amazing high resolution TV we provided an outdoor audio system, if you look closely you’ll see a pair of rock speakers. The audio system served double duty; it provided dramatically improved sound for TV and streaming (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc.) but it was also a Sonos wireless music system. The customer was able to select and enjoy music from their smart phone or tablet whether the TV was raised or lowered.

To help preserve and protect the custom outdoor TV lift we manufactured an outdoor cover. The cover was made from heavy duty weather resistant material, similar to what is used to conceal high end patio furniture. The cover would be put in place when the customer didn’t plan to use the outdoor TV lift for a while. The color of the outdoor cover is can be customized to match your backyard decor.

When not in use the Sunbrite TV and Sonos sound sound bar were concealed from sight by simply pressing a button and they would quickly and smoothly recess into the custom Diamond Case furniture.  The Phoenix TV lift carried a shiplap look and feel to match the styling of the rest of the backyard.  In fact if you look closely you will see the furniture compliments the woodwork in the rear portion of the backyard that concealed the pool equipment.

Outdoor Televisions



When looking to put a television in your backyard, patio, or outdoor living area, we are often asked if a regular indoor television can be used outdoors. Generally speaking this is not a good idea. Standard televisions are not designed to withstand the moisture, heat, dust, and insects that can be found outside. Mounting the TV under a patio cover or using a fabric cover will only delay the inevitable. Eventually an indoor TV will fail if used outdoors (see inset photo).


The connections on this standard television were ruined by outdoor use. For proper performance and longevity a specialized television should be used in outdoor living areas.

Aside from the longevity concerns, indoor TVs are generally not bright enough for outdoor use. Many TVs will look washed out or weak during daytime viewing.

The best choice is to choose a television specifically designed for outdoor use. These specialized TVs provide amazing brightness and are designed specifically to resist the damaging effects of moisture, salt, dust, heat, cold, humidity, and glare. The televisions will look better and physically last longer than any of their indoor counterparts. In fact, outdoor TVs are built so well generally are backed by superior warranties than their indoor counterparts. Inquire for details based on the model we choose.

We offer a complete lineup of outdoor TVs suitable for just about any environment. Popular brands include the Sunbrite outdoor TVs as well as the Samsung Terrace lineup. Sizes range from 22″ to 85″.
