How to prepare for a smart home?
For most people, a smart home offers excellent options to manage hectic and stressful life. Smart devices and appliances can make life easier. Before you start to upgrade your home to be a smart home, make sure that your home is prepared.
Smart homes can be set-up through wireless or hardwired systems-or both. Wireless systems are easier to install and cost-friendly. Hardwired systems are considered more reliable and are typically difficult to hack. A hardwired system can increase the resale value and more suitable for a new building or renovation plan.
Set-up a hardwired system,
Consider where you'll put smart devices and add electrical outlets. Many smart devices need a permanent source of electricity.
Consider not only the traditional wall socket and add more networking ports. You will find they are useful and very convenient.
If you want to improve your existing house into smart homes,
- Upgrade your wi-Fi is the first step. It would be best to choose a new router with Wi-Fi and support various communication technologies, including Bluetooth Low Energy, Z-wave, ZigBee, 6LoWPan, which can communicate with all of your smart devices.
- Try to place your router in a central location and so its signal covers the entire home. Your smart devices and appliances need to connect within a certain distance. The farthest one will have weak signals that make them respond slowly to commands. You may need to boost your Wi-Fi signal if you have a big or multi-level house
- Depending on the house's age, you may run into a problem powering many devices at once. Having a professional electrician inspect your home before buying large appliances.
Before your improvement project starting, please identify your needs.
