Make Life Easier With Remote Reboot

Learn How OvrC, Panamax Keep This Function as Simple and Intuitive as Possible

Make Life Easier With Remote Reboot

We recently worked with a customer in the Stonington, CT area who had all the latest smart home technology but kept running into a deceptively simple problem that many smart home owners don’t even think about until their smart tech is all set up: What do you do when these devices go offline?

Every now and then, even the best technology can fail and need a little help getting back into working order. For example, a router might need to be rebooted after a storm, or your cable box or streaming player might malfunction and need a reboot—even your smart cameras or music players might run into trouble that a simple reboot would fix.

But for our client in Stonington and others all across Connecticut, it’s often the case that after they’ve worked with us, they have all their tech hidden away elegantly in the basement or a closet, which means everything is usually packed in and hard to access for the average customer.

There’s an easier way—remote control of your devices with great products from OvrC and Panamax.

Why Hiring a Smart Home Integrator Makes a Difference

Should You DIY or Use A Smart Home Company?

Why Hiring a Smart Home Integrator Makes a Difference

If you’re a handy man, a fixer-upper, or someone who prefers to do things their own way, it’s entirely possible to assemble a smart home system by yourself. Devices like Amazon’s Alexa and Samsung’s SmartThings are available in stores, and with video tutorials and blogs like this one, DIY installations are more accessible than ever.

The downside? Doing it yourself is not easy. If you want a truly integrated home, you will need to mount cameras, install thermostats, wire your speaker systems, and trickiest of all, get your separate devices working and communicating with each other. You don’t want to juggle different remotes and phone apps; everything should work in unison together automatically. To achieve that, you’ll need the assistance of a smart home company.

To decide if the professional or DIY route is best for you, continue reading to discover how a smart home integrator can help your Guilford, CT home.
