Keeping Up with Smart Homes
It seems almost everything is connected these days. Want to check the
temperature of your oven from outside? See how much milk you have in the
refrigerator from the market? It’s possible! You can now control almost every
aspect of your home from your smartphone. Yet with all this connectivity, you
need a powerful internet network. If you’ve suddenly realized you have “dead
spaces,” then it might be time to consider a mesh network.
A basic wifi network relies on the antennae of the router to reach all the
connected devices. A mesh network uses a series of access devices that connect
to the main hub and each other – forming a mesh of coverage. This helps
eliminate the dead spaces because, in essence, you are creating overlapping
Smart devices benefit from the mesh network system. Unlike extenders that have
their own identity, every device in a mesh network has the same name. This
provides seamless coverage as smart products move between connectors. For
example, items such as camera systems or multiple thermostats stay on the same
network, allowing them to better coordinate with each other.
The smarter our homes become, the greater the strain on our internet
connections. Mesh networks are just one way to ensure the best possible
coverage throughout your home and property. Smart products are only valuable
when they are online.
