When you think of home improvement, what comes to mind? Replacing the countertops in the kitchen? Finishing the basement? What if we told you that it makes more sense to prioritize revamping an element of your home that guests will never see? We’re talking, of course, about your home’s WiFi and a smart home installation.
Whether it’s your wife using the laptop on the patio to Skype with your son away at college or your teenage daughter doing schoolwork and socializing in her bedroom upstairs, your house is turning into a smart home and your WiFi is the foundation. Setting-up robust and reliable WiFi in your house or apartment can make life more convenient, but it requires some planning and attention to detail. Made By WiFi can help optimize your WiFi network to meet the needs of your home automation systems and smart home technology.
Smart Home Wireless Solutions In New York
Streaming an entire Netflix series in one weekend. Running your business from your kitchen table. Internet-dependent activities that were deemed unrealistic less than a decade ago are now a part of everyday life. Indeed, many common devices now require a solid home WiFi network to function. These include:
- Security Systems
- Smart Hubs
- Computer Peripherals
- Mobile Devices
Thinking of calling-in a home automation system specialist for a smart home consultation? Think again. Home automation companies often prioritize aesthetics over performance, which can diminish technological efficacy and create the need for costly repairs.
We may install networks for events, offices and smart homes, but, at the end of the day, our focus is WiFi performance. Made By WiFi can set-up and support all of the smart home technology that supports your day-to-day.
No More WiFi Problems at Home
Home is where the WiFi connects automatically…or at least it should. If time at home is spent suffering through shotty cell service, long site load times, or syncing issues, you owe it to yourself to find-out why.
Here are a few common culprits of poor home WiFi performance:
1. Outdated or overutilized wireless network equipment
Our talented engineers make house calls and can diagnose your WiFi issue in less than an hour. During these visits, we always check the equipment first. That’s because older wireless access points and routers—even those released just a few years ago!—don’t meet modern wireless standards.Older equipment can cause slow speeds and network lag that renders the Internet basically unusable. These outdated pieces of hardware can only support a dozen or so devices at a time. Newer TVs, phones, laptops and other highly used technology don’t function at full potential and place stress on your failing equipment.
2. Improperly placed wireless access points
With blinking lights and protruding antennas, wireless access points likely clash with your home decor, so you stuff yours in the basement, a closet or the corner. Out of sight isn’t always out of mind, as misplaced access points account for a large portion of the connectivity issues we diagnose. In cases like these, we can develop a solution that preserves your house or apartment aesthetic, without compromising wireless network performance. Talk about smart interior design!
3. Outside interference that requires advanced configurations
Speaking of clashing…if you live in an apartment or multi-dwelling unit (MDU), all of your neighbors’ access points are broadcasting their own wireless signals. This may interfere with the wireless signals your device is broadcasting and result in a slow and glitchy WiFi network performance. This is pretty common with older wireless routers, as they are usually limited to broadcasting on the overly populated 2.4GHz spectrum. We work with today’s leading wireless router manufacturers and can obtain the equipment to achieve the configuration you need to enjoy quality service in any space.
