Support Your Smart Home with a Professional Network

Install a Home Network for a Reliable Smart Home System

Support Your Smart Home with a Professional Network

What makes a smart home run reliably and efficiently? While there are many factors that play into the answer to this question, the crucial aspect involves the quality of your home network. Many times the problem lies with your internet connection, not with the device, design, or installation

The true secret to a smart home that runs well is the network. In order to live an electronic lifestyle, you need a strong internet connection established in your Stamford, Connecticut home. Without it, you will not be able to access all the great features in your smart home reliably. You will try to stream Pandora in your bedroom, but the connection gets interrupted. Or, your home theater won’t be able to play that 4K movie you downloaded. The fact remains that the network is the backbone of your smart home. Keep reading this article to discover what services we offer to guarantee a perfect smart home operation.

The Secret to a Smarter Home

The reality is you can purchase thousands of dollars’ worth of smart home equipment, and the performance of the devices will still only be as good as the network it runs on. It’s difficult to run a smart home on the equipment a typical internet service provider gives you. The truth is you need professional equipment and an installer you trust to supply the right connections.

A bad network will produce poor quality audio and video streaming, slow download speeds, and failed attempts to operate all the features in your smart home. Often people wrongly blame the integration system or device for the problem when in reality all they have to do is fix their network. An enterprise-grade network is the secret to a good smart home.

Our Networking Services

Rich AV Design uses quality, enterprise-grade Wi-Fi technology to support the smart homes we install throughout Connecticut. Here is an in-depth summary of the steps we take to ensure your connection is strong and reliable.

Assessment: Maybe you have a whole house music system and want to stream high-resolution audio. Or perhaps you travel all over the globe and need to stay aware of your home’s status 24-7. Either way, we match the size of your home and your lifestyle with our network packages. Our team will assess your property to acquire the specifications of the technology in order to recommend the right networking equipment. The Rich AV Design team will take your specific applications, usage patterns, devices, and conditions of the home into consideration so that we can customize your home network. We'll make sure it's powerful enough to transmit all the connections you want – from home theater and surveillance to door locks and window treatments.

Planning: After the assessment, we create a plan to get your smart home up and running with premier performance. We'll send you a price quote on a networking service and package. We can move forward with the installation after we go over those details with you and you sign off on the proposal.

Installation: Rich AV Design uses both wireless and wired networking solutions to ensure your internet connection remains secure and reliable. We will place wireless access points in key areas around your home and check all of the connections to avoid any pitfalls. If we discover that additional work or equipment is needed, we'll let you know before we move forward on any other work. All of the hardware will be placed out of the way so it doesn’t affect your décor or create clutter.

Service & Support: One of the greatest benefits of working with a local integrator is that you receive more personalized service and support. You won't have to wait for long periods of time for service or talk to a scripted robot on the phone. Our team will respond personally and fix your problem quickly. Since we already know the ins and outs of your system, it will be easy to come up with a solution. It doesn't matter if we installed the system one or ten years ago, we'll take your service call and install updates as needed.
