A Professional Network Setup Optimizes All Your Home Technologies

The Internet has come a long way since the days of “You’ve got mail.” Today, networks of interconnected smart devices comprise the Internet of things (IoT) and are part of our homes and daily lives. However, for these products to work effectively, network strength and reliability are key. 

At simpleHome, we design and install performance-driven technology solutions, helping our clients in Boston, MA and the greater area create the perfect home network setup. Here are some ways a professional network installation will optimize every technology system in your smart home.

Audio & Video 

AV systems include hardwired and wireless components, both of which must be considered when designing your home network. Multi-room audio depends on your home network to stream music through either hardwired or wireless speakers. Brands, like Savant, which offer industry-leading whole-home audio solutions, will not work as advertised on a weak or unreliable network. The same is true for home theaters and media rooms. 

Ideally, your projector or TVs should be hardwired back to your router. This ensures the best and most reliable connection. However, if you don’t want to hardwire them, upgrading to the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology guarantees a strong signal across all your wireless devices, seamlessly integrating video, audio, and even lighting control in home theaters and media rooms. 

Smart Surveillance

The effectiveness of video surveillance is also a function of your home network. Today’s smart cameras use video analytics to comb through hours of footage, identifying and reporting relevant events in real-time. If there is a stranger at the door, for example, a video doorbell will send out notifications to your phone. For delivery drivers, you can communicate with them through the built-in intercom; or maybe the kids forgot their keys, or lost their phone, in which case you can tap on your smartphone and remotely let them inside. Either way, it wouldn’t be possible without a professionally installed network. 

Lights, Inside and Out

Lutron and Ketra, another two of our brand partners, are the industry leaders in lighting control and motorized shades. Their products, which include tunable lights, smart switches and dimmers, and window treatments, wouldn’t be of much use without a network either. 

Outdoor areas represent some of the most challenging spaces for most home networks. Hardwired devices, such as speakers and TVs, must be weatherproof. In addition, Wi-Fi access points should be strategically placed so that even the farthest parts of your backyard have a strong signal. 

Whether it is inside or outside your home, a professional network setup integrates and optimizes all your smart products and security systems. If you are in the Greater Boston Area, contact us so we can design and install the perfect network for your home.
