3 Reasons a Strong Network is a Smart Home Necessity
Enhance the Performance of all Your Devices with Fast, Reliable Signals
As smart home devices become more popular, there’s a growing need for enterprise-grade networks that help them communicate efficiently in your home. Relying on your Internet service provider’s standard installation won’t be enough to deal with all of your connected devices. Before you can get more from that new thermostat, camera or speaker, you first need to focus on your home’s network.
Our home network setups, available from Groton, CT, to Westerly, RI, help you truly embrace the connected home. Expanding your network capabilities will help your devices collaborate better to serve your needs. Likewise, you ensure your signal reaches every corner of your residence to avoid any dead spots that could ruin your smart home experience.
Easily Handle Added Traffic from Your Devices
Bandwidth is on of the first issues to overcome as new devices come on board, particularly when it comes to streaming movies and music. When you consider the amount of tablets, phones, computers and streaming devices in your home, you begin to see why it’s so critical that everyone can coexist in a digital environment because no one likes to deal with lagging video or things that won’t load.
Latency is another problem your system likely didn't have to deal with when you used it primarily to check emails or chat with friends. Audio and video streaming are extremely latency-sensitive—it’s why sound and images in your movie sometimes don't match up.
You need to use best-in-class equipment specifically designed to address these problems. Start with the brain of your network—your router. Choose a router with high-performance processors intended to deal with high bandwidths and low latency. There are even routers specifically designed to deal with streaming 4K content.
Expand Your Network throughout Your Home
Bringing networking capabilities to every area of your residence is vital when you have a connected home. Using switches, we extend the reach of your hardwired signal to a wide range of devices throughout your house. To broaden your Wi-Fi signals, we incorporate strategically placed wireless access points to extend your signal.
These access points connect directly to a network device, like a switch or router. They then relay Wi-Fi signals to all your rooms as well as your patio, backyard or pool, so you're always connected. We use special mapping software to ensure that you have strong signal in all areas, despite factors like radiant heating, stone or large mechanical spaces which can cause signal issues.
Got an older house and afraid you can reach certain areas? No problem. As low volt technicians, with over 40 years of experience working in homes throughout New England, we can get data wires anywhere you need them.
