In the modern digital landscape, a subpar network will impact the performance of Internet-enabled devices in your home
From phones and tablets to gaming consoles and computers, there are more Internet-enabled devices in our homes than ever before. On the one hand, this is a good thing, as it means there are exciting new ways to use our devices and improve our lifestyle. On the other hand, more devices means more strain on your home network, which may hamper the performance of devices that use your network.
It’s time to go beyond the store-bought modem and router. A home wireless network installation from a company like Soundworks will give you the speeds and performance you want. Here are three reasons for homeowners in Armonk and other areas of New York to invest in a network upgrade.
MORE INTERNET-ENABLED DEVICES
As we mentioned before, the number of smart devices in our homes is increasing rapidly. In addition to computers, phones and gaming consoles, your speakers, TV, thermostat, security system, light fixtures and even some appliances are now linked to your network. All these devices fighting for bandwidth can cause significant network performance problems.
If you’re still using one wireless router from a big-box retailer to cover your entire home, long load times and network crashes are inevitable. Our team can revitalize your network to provide blazing fast speeds and robust connections throughout your home. We’ll examine the wiring, where your router or routers are placed, and how everything is linked. The result is a streamlined network that delivers a faster, more reliable performance.
MORE STREAMING CONTENT
Whether you’re jamming to your favorite tunes on Spotify or binging a new Netflix series, many of us use streaming services to watch or listen to our favorite media. Streaming music or video requires a reliable connection, especially to stream multiple things at once.
If you’re trying to stream 4K UHD video in your home theater, your network matters as much as your TV and other components. A subpar network will leave you with pixelated images, buffering issues and lengthy load times. Upgrade your network to ensure you and your family can watch or listen to whatever streaming content you want at any time.
GREATER DIGITAL SECURITY THREATS
Each device on your network represents a new entry point for hackers looking to steal your data. Basic network encryption isn’t enough anymore; to be sure you’re protected from identity theft, malware and other threats, you need state-of-the-art network security.
Our network specialists will examine your entire network to make sure you’re fully protected. In addition to security measures like network encryption and firewalls, we may recommend setting up a hidden mesh network using Z-Wave or other technologies. Hidden mesh networks connect your devices without relying on your standard Wi-Fi network, which helps to hide them from hackers and can increase overall network performance as well.
