How Do You Get Stronger Connections for Your Smart Home Automation System?
Upgrading Your Devices May Not Be the Answer
We’ve all been there: wanting more out of our technology. Whether that’s a smartphone that can load more apps, or a car that gives you more horsepower, you’ve probably outgrown a few pieces of tech in your lifetime. The same can happen with your Aspen, CO smart home automation system. Whether you may have been satisfied for years with your components’ performance or you’re new to the world of integrated technology, you want to ensure you’re getting the very best performance out of your devices. In this blog, we’ll show you the most common issue that could be slowing down your system. Read on for more.
There are a number of ways your system could slow down. One of the first that many homeowners arrive at is the idea that they need to replace their various devices. If you TV isn’t showing you true 4K picture, or your whole home audio system isn’t delivering lossless audio formats, you probably just need to trade out a few components, right? Well, that may be the case, but more likely there’s something else holding up your system.
The Most Common Reason Your System Slows Down
Though it’s easy to blame device performance on the devices themselves, it’s not always their fault. Sometimes, there simply isn’t enough network bandwidth to support them all. If your network isn’t running at optimal speeds, your components will have a hard time talking to one another and they won’t work properly. For instance, you may have invested in a 4K video server and a 4K display, but if your network can’t handle the vast amount of info that’s required of a 4K signal, you may see reduced quality or even nothing at all.
How Do You Improve Your Network?
Many homeowners don’t realize what it takes to improve a network. Some think that investing in higher internet speeds is the answer. Actually, your internet service provider only tells you about the speeds they can record on their end. It has very little impact on how fast your network actually works if you don’t have the right devices. Installing a high speed router, signal boosters and the right cables can make all of the difference. The router manages the internet signals and sends them to the right places. The more efficiently it can direct traffic, the faster your speeds will be. The cables act as the highway, higher bandwidth cables mean more lanes for traffic, allowing each to move more quickly.
