The Most Important Part of Home Automation: the Network

Ensure Optimal Performance with a Professional Home Network Installation

The Most Important Part of Home Automation: the Network

No matter what size or type of automation system you have in your home, one thing is certain: the quality of your home network will have a direct impact on how well your system runs. If you’ve been experiencing connectivity issues in your Portland, Oregon area home, it’s time to ask yourself if your network is up to par. Keep reading to learn why a professional home network installation is vital for automation success.

Why is the Home Network so Important?

It’s a bold claim to say that the network is the most important aspect of home automation, but we stand by it. And here’s why: other devices depend on your network in order to do their jobs. No matter how much money you spend in order to get the highest-quality 4K smart TV, if you can’t access any of your streaming services, how much good is that TV? Not very.

Homes with many internet-connected devices require a lot more bandwidth than the average household. So if you’re sticking with the standard networking package from your Internet Service Provider, you’re likely to see some performance issues.

Given that one of the great things about home automation is how convenient it makes everyday life, it doesn’t make sense to rely on a network that causes lagging, delays, and slow performance. Instead, ensuring that your network can easily support all of your home automation devices should be a top priority.

How Do I Improve My Home Network?

If you’re just getting started with home automation, the best thing you can do is choose a home integration company that offers networking services. That way, your system will be designed from the ground up with a strong networking foundation. The home integrator will be able to identify your exact networking needs based on the layout of your home and the devices that you’ve chosen as part of the automated system.

But don’t despair if you already have a home automation system in place. If you’re seeing any signs of poor network quality, such as slow loading times or lagging connections, then it’s time for a network upgrade. This process is similar to an initial networking setup: our team analyzes your network performance, the placement of the networking equipment in your home, and the networking requirements of your home automation devices. Using that information, we can develop a solution geared toward ensuring your network is ready for reliable automation both today and in the future.
