Default Advice on TV enclosure

I want to put my 55inch tv at my backyard which bought last year, planning to mount it on the wall under a shade. I thought about making myself a cabinet to protect it from rain, and lockable, but it is not a easy job.And I have also talked with one of suppliers Deertv, their enclosure is waterproof, lockable ,having fan cooling system, so what else should I have to think about it? Please share me with your idea. That will be really helpful for me. Thanks.

If the TV set was not designed for outdoor use then you won't see it too good during the day. Night time no problems.

Also location would be a factor, do not let direct Sun light fall on the screen, it won't do it much good.

Some TV mounts can be locked, this would prevent theft, but do nothing for vandalism, high humidity during the rainy season, and extreme heat or cold would also be a factor, a TV set meant for indoor use will not survive too good for a long period outdoors, not without proper protection and climate control.

So what to think about?? Temperature, humidity, dust, things hitting the front screen, someone wanting to borrow it for quite a while, or can they carve/paint their teams logo or gangs name in/on the front screen and can it be seen during that big game during the day?
