Four Smart Home Must Haves

Embracing Technology Around Us

With technology being an integral part of our daily lives, you want to ensure your home technology systems run smoothly and efficiently. No one wants to be scrambling to turn lights on or off or deal with the challenges of an unstable network while streaming a movie thriller or watching the big game. The following must-haves will help to make the most of your smart home.

Network Stability & Consistency (Your Wifi)

Network connection failures or inconsistent stability are a literal drag. However, upgrading standard equipment can make a big difference in network performance and ensure a stable and consistent network throughout your home.

For custom home installations there are several reputable network systems to streamline across multiple access points. Users or the installer can access the network through an app on their mobile device for system updates, and troubleshooting is simple and quick. So, you can get back to enjoying your music, movies, or home entertainment.

Seamless sound, everywhere, with music streamers

A stable network helps make the most of music subscription services like Tidal and Spotify with an app-controlled wireless music streamer. Bluesound or Sonos connect through your Wi-Fi, and Aurender is networked direct. They all require consistency for optimum music and video-streaming performance.

App-Controlled Lighting

Talk with your lighting or home automation specialist about programmable dimmers and lighting controlled from an app on your mobile device. You can set brightness levels in different zones of your home and at different times of day.

From a morning mode that lights up your kitchen as you make your first cup of coffee, to an entertaining mode where ambient lighting sets the scene. Using programmable lighting apps can also help reduce energy use.
