    Outdoor TVs that are designed to stay outdoors, 365 days a year!

    Here’s a TV company I had not heard of, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen some of their products in upscale hotels. One line Seura manufactures are “hidden TVs”. They are installed behind mirrors. Turn the TV on via a remote control and the mirror becomes a TV. Shut it off, and it’s a mirror again, or even a picture. They come in sizes from 10” to 27” for a bathroom mirror, all the way to 65” high def, or even 4K models for other rooms. They range in price from about $4500 to $13,000. But what really caught my eye at the Luxury Tech Show was their outdoor TV’s. They make two lines and they’re both designed to stay outdoors, 365 days a year. One, the Storm, ideal for shade and indirect sunlight applications like covered patios, shaded decks and cabanas. They have a temperature rating of -24 F to 122 F. They're waterproof and Séura says their Triple Lock Seal provides protection against dust, moisture, ice, and even insects that can wreak havoc on internal electronics. The company also says they manufacture the thinnest in outdoor TVs, the first of it’s kind to offer a sleek, tapered profile at a mere 2.7” thin. Comes with a complete set of weather-protected inputs and even a waterproof remote control. Séura TV's are available in 42, 55, and 65 inch models. Prices range from about $3900 to $8400. Then there's the Séura Storm Ultra Bright Weatherproof Outdoor TVs for decks, patios, even hot tubs. The super bright LuminOptics are viewerable in sunlight. Temperature range is -30F to 140F. They come in 42, 47 and 52" sizes and retail for about $5,000 to $7500.
