Face it, no longer can we ignore a poor wireless signal! We have become so dependent on our connected devices that we starve for a strong, reliable network. When that network is slow and unreliable, nothing can be more frustrating.
So what causes a poor wireless network?
No, it’s not your nosy neighbor stealing half of your internet speed. Although, your network security should be setup, we will cover that in our next article. Take a look at what has gone on for the last 5 years in our homes. Today almost everything is getting a share of the internet inside our homes. No longer is the internet just for that PC that once sat in the corner of the family room or dad’s study room. Now, it’s for your Smart HDTV to stream Netflix, it’s for your sons XBOX so that he can play with his friends online, it’s for your 4 year old daughter so she can watch ABC sing-along songs on her personal iPad, it’s for the wife so she can look on Pinterest and get ideas for what to cook for dinner, oh yeah and dads computer in his study room.

There are a number of factors that causes wifi to become spotty and unreliable. Sure you can go online and get some tips to improve minor issues or power cycle your router and modem. But these temporary fixes will only buy you little to no resolution for the war for bandwidth that is going on in your home. Don’t let your local electronics store or Amazon sell you a router with all the bells and whistles claiming to be the fix. This increase of internet use in our homes has created a huge void that grows each and every day and will soon become a common nightmare for every household that is not prepared.
The networks we at Creative LAVA design are high performance, highly reliable and will handle your needs for today and for the future. This is the backbone of any automation and control system and should not be overlooked or designed with consumer grade equipment. We only use the best small business grade and enterprise grade networks.
At Creative LAVA we can put together a package of switches, routers, wireless access points, low-profile in-ceiling wireless access points, and wireless accessories to compliment your home automation system, allowing you to have control no matter where you are in your home.
Consumer grade networks aren’t designed to handle the high demands of the modern home automation environment. Using quality networking components results in better wifi reception, jitter-free a/v streaming, and less on-site service calls.
