You may wonder, 'what makes a smart home run perfectly?’ While there are many factors to installing a fully integrated smart home, there is one key factor that is often overlooked – the network. It may seem obvious, but many times the problem lies with the Internet connection, not with the device, design, or the AV installation company.
The true secret to an effective smart home is the network installation. In order to live an electronic lifestyle, you need strong internet connections established in your Newport, Rhode Island home. Without it, every other piece fails. Your wireless Internet connection is the backbone of the smart home.

The Secret to a Smarter Home
The reality is you can purchase thousands of dollars’ worth of high-end audio/video equipment and the performance of the devices will still only be as good as the network it runs on. Would you invest in a Lamborghini and put regular fuel in it? But that's what you do when you use the modem and router supplied by your local Internet Service Provider or electronic store instead of hiring a professional.
The network is the 'secret ingredient' – the foundation – of your smart home. So it makes sense to invest in the best wired/wireless networking solutions to support all of the connected devices you own. A bad network will produce poor quality video streaming, slow download speeds, and a smart home that doesn’t operate consistently. Often people wrongly blame the integration system or device for the problem when in reality all they have to do is fix their network. An enterprise-grade network is the secret to a good smart home.
