Outdoor Living



Outdoor living is the strongest trend in homes nationally and there is no sign of declining interest. Why? Across the country, particularly since 2020, we became tired of being indoors from November through April. Ohio winters are particularly rough, not so much from the cold, but all the gloomy, gray days. There’s a reason local towns were named Dublin, London, Lancaster & Mansfield, they’re just like those towns in England – they’re smothered in gray for too many months.

Summer is around the corner, so let’s be outside in the day & the night, but realize, limited time only. Cold gray skies come in the Fall along with our beloved Scarlet & Gray… so let’s get busy.

  • Outdoor Lighting – Transform the night with light
  • Outdoor Audio – Music where you entertain and relax
  • Outdoor WiFi – Stream music, movies and websites to any device
  • Outdoor Televisions – Easier than you think

We also serve outdoor commercial properties, especially restaurants and sports bars that want to extend the inside – outside.



Summer & fall nights outside with a table, food and friends are in some ways the best part of the year. There are many outdoor summer evenings, that beg to be enjoyed and outdoor lighting makes the transition from light to dark, day to night, as a easy as a few buttons to push.

Outdoor lighting is the art of creating a welcoming and inviting atmosphere for you to live and entertain outdoors, whether it’s a backyard, patio, or a garden area. With the right outdoor lighting, you’re creating a place and a space where you want to be… and stay a while.



Seems almost anti-audio to suggest having WiFi outdoors in second place. But times have changed. Having a solid and robust outdoor WiFi enables all the options, so let’s do it right.

Avoid Repeaters – Repeat – Avoid Repeaters

If you install a wireless repeater with hopes of extending your WiFi range your problems have just begun. The problem comes when you leave the back yard, take your phone or laptop back inside to the other end of the house. The device will stay connected to the outdoor repeater. You will be thinking… “what happened, I came inside and I lost the WiFi?”

Mesh networks are the solid solution. Yes, they cost more. But they don’t come with headaches.


Outdoor speakers are not indoor speakers made waterproof. They are engineered to sound completely different as they are being used in a completely different acoustic environment.

Outdoor speakers are designed to acoustically offset the large open expanse of the outdoors without floors, walls, and ceilings to help reflect the sound and augment the bass. The outdoor speaker is acoustically engineered to deliver deep bass and wide dispersion despite not having traditional reflective surfaces. Specified and installed properly, outdoor speakers can present an acoustic stage that is rich, expansive and well detailed. Learn how to do it right in our Outdoor Speaker Guide article.

Excellent customer service, knowledgeable advisors. Genesis Audio set up my home theatre and entertainment system and all my devices in 2016 and I've relied on them ever since.

I value high standards and expect the same from the goods and services, I purchase. Let me share with you my experience with Genesis Audio. I was in the market for a high end HiFi system, and I lacked product knowledge, product compatibility, and whether I wanted a two or multi-channel system. I had an idea, and since Genesis Audio is a distributor for so many of these high-end brands, my decision to discuss my goal with them was easy. I met with Don of Genesis Audio, and he assisted me in my decision process. Besides being a great resource, Don helped me clear up that decision that a two-channel system was the better way to go. I purchased the system, and another great service Genesis Audio provides, is the installation. These folks are very professional, courteous, and hold their selves to a very high standard. I kindly, encourage you to give Genesis Audio a call, and a visit. Look at their website and see all of services they provide. It is so good to have a company care about their customer. My experience tells me companies that do just that are here to stay.Sincerely,Michael D.

We have hired Genesis for our A/V systems in 2003, 2008 and 2020. Each time, they have done a wonderful job in helping us pick the right components and in installing these components. During our most recent (Nov. 2020) installation, Kyle Johnson and his staff did a professional and admirable job in picking and installing the A/V components, in patiently explaining the wiring connections and other installation details, and in providing us with detailed user instructions. We would definitely recommend Genesis for A/V system needs.
