Pre-wiring WiFi is a major step that is frequently missed during the construction process, but it is the perfect way to not only ensure your home’s safe network, but to save you time, commitment, and money in the long run!
The Trend of Pre-Wiring a Home during construction for a WiFi Network
While the use of smart home appliances and applications expands, your WiFi needs to accommodate these devices as well. Homeowners have long been left with the challenge of building their own wireless network system. Constructors are now, though, pushing home Wi-Fi to the next level by providing connection points from the get-go in their houses. It can enable various smart-home functions such as smart security systems, lighting and thermostats, as well as streaming use every day.
Why Pre-Wiring your Home is Important:
It is important to look ahead when constructing a new home in order to decide how to use the space correctly to achieve its maximum usable potential. During the building of your house, having it pre-wired would save both time and money, as well as secure your home for the future. Setting up your home for audio and building a proper network are some of the most significant steps in this process.
- In your house, building up a suitable network helps you to access the internet to its full capacity. Instead of wasting your WiFi, we run hardwired lines to different places in your home so that some devices connect directly to the internet.
- Pre-wiring also prepares the house to be equipped for sound. This could be for a potential set up for surround sound or a whole home audio system. When wiring with a low-voltage system, optimizing your home’s potential for audio should be just as important on your list.
- If you’re going to build a new home, it’s the right time for it. While smart technology can be updated by a home automation specialist, it is ideal to do it before the walls go up to save you time and money. The first step is to decide the equipment that you want to be accessible and where you want it.
Would you want smart lighting, a smart thermostat, a surveillance system, a home theater, or a smart garage opener? Maybe you want it all!
A Pre-Wiring Solution:
Your WiFi, which is the back bone for any smart home, is more efficient depending on how smartly you set up your wiring. Using Access Points hardwired back to the router will extend your WiFi capabilities to all corners of your home. Especially significant is the position of each AP (Access Point); it should be planned accordingly with the layout of the building. Creating a centralized location to all your technology solutions can simplify your daily use and make it easier for any future upgrade. Furthermore, individual devices may need a more direct link, such as any device that uses 4K image streaming. CAT 5e or CAT 6 cables are used in spaces that are likely to house these electronics to ensure consistent picture quality, such as media centers, home theaters, or even bedrooms.
Pre-wiring is a major step that is frequently missed during the construction process, but it is the perfect way to not only preserve your home’s safe and safe network, but to save you time, commitment, and money in the long run!
