Today’s Smart Homes Require Reliable Home Networks

In today’s world of digital devices and smart automation, almost every home in the U.S. has a home network and internet connection. These networks, however, are not all created equal.  Some offer robust connectivity with no downtime; others lead to dropped connections and streaming content that freezes on your smart TV. Low signal strength and diminished audio and video quality are just a few other technical glitches experienced in homes with an inefficient network.  Fortunately, a robust Wi-Fi installation in your Newport Beach, CA home can change all of that. Let’s look at what’s involved in this type of installation and what it can do for your home in Orange County.

What Is Wi-Fi Installation? 

A home network connects your devices, such as computers, smart home electronics, and game systems, to the internet and each other. Today’s home networks usually consist of wired and wireless solutions. A wired home connects devices to the internet using Ethernet cables. A wireless home network, also called Wi-Fi, uses radio frequency signals to connect your devices to the internet and each other. This type of connection offers homeowners greater flexibility.  When installed correctly, you can access the internet from anywhere in your home, including your outdoor area. You can also download movies and books, stream music, and binge-watch Netflix without experiencing slow speeds and lost connections.

STREAMING ENTERTAINMENT

The way we consume entertainment has changed dramatically in the last twenty years. In the past, for a high-quality experience you might go to the cinema to watch a movie or buy or rent DVDs that made home entertainment more convenient. In the last few years, streaming content has become the dominant form or entertainment consumption and thanks to high-speed internet connections. With this increasing demand for internet connectivity for all our devices at home, fast and robust Wi-Fi is an essential part of any modern homes.

While we are a long way from the slow connections of only 15 years ago, you still need a system that can keep up with today’s demands. Today, your spouse wants to watch Netflix in the media room while your kids play online games on the Xbox, and you listen to Apple Music on the outdoor sound system. You need a Wi-Fi installation that can keep up. 

BANDWIDTH

Streaming services, such as Amazon and Netflix, online gaming, and meeting platforms like Zoom and Google Meet, require a minimum bandwidth (expressed in megabits per second) to deliver high-quality content. On average, they need 10 to 20 Mbps. Although this may seem like very little bandwidth usage, when you multiple this across various simultaneously connected devices, it becomes significant. The average home has over 30 devices connected, and the Wi-Fi router capacity and throughput can be an important factor in device performance.
