A Smart Ecosystem
Most of the smart devices in your home rely on the Internet of Things. They communicate with each other to create the ideal environment in your home. As part of your smart home installation, we help you figure out which technology should be added to your network. As part of that process, we help you choose which should rely on your Wi-Fi connection and which should have an Ethernet wire running to it. Your network ecosystem could grow to include lights, shades, speakers, TVs, projectors, appliances, and control devices.
A Networking Foundation
Since homes throughout Olathe and the greater Kansas City metropolitan area now rely so much on strong connections, it’s essential to have a reliable home network installation that can handle all technology needs. We’ll lay an Ethernet cabling founding and optimize your router and access points to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi signal. The goal is to ensure we cover every corner of your home including outdoor spaces. We also take great care to alleviate traffic flow especially for high-bandwidth features like media streaming and home security cameras.
A Secure Network
One of the biggest concerns when it comes to smart devices is the fear of hacking. We take many precautions to ensure your network is protected from third parties. We work with enterprise-grade networking equipment that includes firewalls designed to keep out intruders. Through our years of experience, we can gauge the privacy and encryptions that make the most sense for your networking needs. Add dedicated VLAN networks for the more vulnerable systems like security or surveillance for added protection. Finally, we know network security is a fluid solution. We recommend ongoing support and diagnostics. We’ll be able to patch up issues as soon as they happen and offer software upgrades as soon as they’re available.
From the same touchpad you use to manage your home automation system, you can communicate easily with the rest of the family and even guests. When someone arrives at the front door, use your touchpad to pull up live video, talk with them directly and unlock the front door. When it's time for dinner, you can call the kids directly instead of having to scream to rally the whole family. Our intercom systems offer crisp sound and high-resolution video to ensure crystal clear communication. Don't worry about the kids clogging up the phone lines either; you can have multiple conversations going through the intercom system at any time.
Improved Cell Service
Large luxury homes are often prone to cell phone dead spots. Instead of relegating all conversations to that one corner window that has a reliable signal, it's time to integrate a cellular booster system. These systems use external and internal antennae to relay messages from and to nearby towers. This is important not only to avoid dropped calls but also to enhance the data reach and speed for all your connected devices. This gives you greater freedom to choose the ideal times when you want your smartphone and tablet to connect to your Wi-Fi network or your data plan. These boosters do not rely on your network, so you'll be able to use your data even when the internet goes out.
Expand your storage capabilities with innovative cloud storage solutions. You can relieve your computer and smart devices of data and programs while also reducing the equipment in your home. You can use cloud storage to save your photos, movies, albums, games, and even apps. If you have high-resolution security cameras on your property, we also recommend placing your surveillance footage in the cloud. The added benefit of cloud storage is that you can access it from anywhere in the world. We’ll create an easy-to-use solution so all family members can upload, share, view, and download items. Just let us know which devices you'd like to give access, and we can take care of the rest.
