Like electricity and gas, home network infrastructure is becoming a standard expectation for homebuyers in Northern Nevada, the Lake Tahoe Region, and around the nation. Builders that include a robust network in new homes find added value and greater appeal to the tech-savvy generation who are seeking connected, scalable homes.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, two-thirds of consumers want a connected home. This demand provides builders with the opportunity to offer unprecedented ease of living, along with energy savings, increased safety, and security.
Builders and smart home integrators are working together to provide clients with the latest smart home technology that is secure, reliable, and safe.
By including structured wiring and wireless network infrastructure, builders set themselves apart from their competition. In addition, leveraging relationships with experienced, qualified smart home integrators not only provides a reliable network infrastructure but also converts to possible savings in smart home technology.
To support today’s smart technology, homes require both wired and wireless network solutions. Gaming consoles, streaming services, and 8K HDR TVs require too much bandwidth for a smart home to rely solely on wireless connections. On the other hand, IoT technologies without ethernet ports, such as smart thermostats and doorbells, require Wi-Fi.
If possible, prewiring a home during the build process can reduce costs by limiting tear-outs. By working in the consulting stages, smart home integrators can also discuss a homeowner’s goals and answer the many questions they have about smart home technology. From there, Diversified Systems International (DSI) works with builders, detailing hardware and wiring on plans and diagrams.
Additionally, wireless solutions may include cutting-edge wireless access points that bring coverage from corner to corner and into outdoor entertainment areas. This results in no dropped connections, slow downloads, or technology lags.
Safety continues to play a critical role in consumers’ interest in smart home technology. Smart security cameras, doorbells, and locks are often the introduction to smart home automation that then segues into motorized blinds, smart lights, and complete home automation systems.
Consumers are also concerned about the safety of the network. As cybercrimes become increasingly common, homeowners want to know that their information and connected devices are secure. Hiding a home’s network, using two-factor authentication and unique passwords, and setting up a secured guest network are useful safety measures.
DSI also provides continued support so that our clients receive needed upgrades that offer security and protection and reduce vulnerability for all connected devices. In addition, operating system updates also ensure optimal functionality.
A well-designed connected home brings unrivaled ease of living and home enjoyment, but it is only as good as the network that supports it.
At DSI, we create tailored smart home technology solutions, including a robust home network that enables the complete functionality of all connected devices. Working with builders, we develop networks that allow for a luxurious lifestyle free from connectivity issues and scalable to meet future technology needs.
